Pneumatic Hoists for Lifting
Our Columbia pneumatic hoists for lifting are known for minimizing hoist size and weight, requiring less input power, and featuring compact and efficient planetary reductions that help increase production. Our products are equipped with dependable vane motors that are compact and durable for operation in the most demanding applications, and spring-applied, pneumatically released brakes that apply automatically.
Engineered with sealed construction that keeps gears, shaft surfaces, and bearings lubricated and running optimally, our pneumatic hoists for lifting feature a modular design that allows drum size changes and a wide range of gear ratios and motor sizes to provide the performance required for your application. We offer a full selection of options, from single-speed drum switches to synchronized multi-unit/multi-axis proportional systems to put you in full control.

Line speed is the distance the load travels over a given amount of time.
Horsepower is a measurement of the rate (line speed) at which work (line pull) is performed.
Travel distance is the distance the load must move. Determining travel distance is more difficult in positioning systems, when using multiple pieces of line or when line stays in the system.
Wire rope size is determined primarily by the weight of the load being pulled or lifted.
The duty cycle of a winch or hoist is a measurement of how often it is used in a given amount of time.
To prevent excessive wire rope wear and damage and ensure the safety of operators, a location that permits proper fleet angle is necessary to let the wire rope spool uniformly onto the drum.
