Dubai Cranes ... expanded range.

Dubai Cranes & Technical Services, a leading manufacturer of overhead material handling equipment, has launched eight new models of wire rope hoists, ranging from 3.2 tons to 40 tons in capacity, designed specifically for the Middle East.

Manufactured using high-end European components and labelled the DXB Hoist series, the different models offer varied capacities, designed to suit customised requirements. Dubai Cranes facilitated local procurement, designing, manufacturing and assembly of the new line-up, with the highest precision in accordance with the international standards, enabling reliable and durable crane products to meet the needs of general manufacturing industries across the region, according to a senior official of the company.

“The new DXB Hoist series represents the next generation of industry benchmarked equipment, offering the latest in technology, innovation, performance, durability and savings. The radical design facilitates stepless hoisting movement, making lifting seamless, precise and with enhanced control,” says Andrew Kay, General Manager, Dubai Cranes & Technical Services, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments.

According to Kay, the product has received rave reviews and feedback from the implementation across various industries locally. “We are positive the product will serve as a good fit for the diverse general manufacturing industry requirements across the Middle East,” he says.

The new range of hoists is designed towards meeting specific environment requirements where the conventional design needs alterations to endure more hazardous environments, Kay adds.

“The crane design eliminates peak rope forces and reduces the wear on reeving components and also enables smooth and accurate load positioning with total control.

“The newly designed main girder is the perfect fit for a runway, and the revolutionary sliding connection allows the end truck to better accommodate itself on the crane runway. The rope of the hoist requires minimum lubrication, reducing maintenance costs,” he explains.

Dubai Cranes has been supplying products to the markets since 2018 and has evolved as a material handling technology supplier for standard cranes up to 40 tons as well as advanced hot metal process cranes up to 500 tons.

In addition to installation and commissioning of cranes, and preventive maintenance and refurbishment of the product, Dubai Cranes is counted among the companies enabling fastest spare parts delivery options – within one week as compared to standard eight weeks with other companies, Kay claims.
