Why APPI: As the custom service bodies they manufacture are going through their final finishing process, the production line at Dakota Bodies, Inc. (DBI) has a point where the overhead track they ride on is low enough to interfere with cross traffic.

To lift it out of the way, DBI uses one of our Columbia HF2100-4A33-L-02 AC electric hoists as a bridge hoist with two of our vertical lead sheaves providing guidance for the wire rope.

For the convenience of the operator, the track hoist is equipped with wireless controls. A hand held radio transmitter they carry with them communicates with the receiver which is housed with the reversing starters for the motor.

A spring applied, electrically released motor brake holds the track section in the up position and a wire rope tension plate keeps the line wrapped tightly on the drum when the track is in the down position and the load is removed from the hoist.

Please contact us if you would like more information about this particular conveyor track hoist or any of our other products and services.
