Customer's benefit

With a weight of only 12 kg and a lifting capacity of 400 kg, the LPM is the lightest among the electric chain hoists in the entertainment industry. Its low weight, the protection class IP65 and the robust construction with the cover made of aluminum means it is perfectly suited for mobile and outdoor use. The manganese phosphated profile steel chain offers high corrosion resistance and improved dry running properties. The load hook is equipped with a dampening system and a single fall hook clamp which positively follows the hook.

The case hardened and manganese phosphated profile steel chain provides about 15 % more capacity at an identical nominal diameter compared to the round steel chain. The higher cross-sectional area reduces wear and increases
the lifetime of the chain. The manganese phosphating improves its corrosion resistance and dry running properties.

LPM, the smallest chain hoist of the LP-family, weighing only 12 kg, lifts up to 400 kg as a D8-hoist. It is modular in design with compact construction which is why it is perfectly suited for the integration in traverses. It offers the option
to equip the hoist as D8-Plus by mounting a second DC-spring-loaded brake on the existing shaft.

A feature of the hoist is the protection class IP65. It is dust proof and protected against water jets. The LP is perfectly suitable for outside use, even under the most difficult conditions. On open-air events or on concert tours, the rigger will appreciate the weather resistance and reliability of this electric chain hoist.

All LP electric chain hoists are equipped with a 3-stage self-contained gear. The helical gearing with geometric optimisation ensures extremely quiet running. This allows the handling of loads during events. Thanks to the protection
provided by the cover and housing the sound pressure level of the LP is only 60 dB. This makes it one of the quietest motors available on the market.
