[INDUSTRY NEWS]


was introduced as the only product in the range with two chain falls. The EC (electric chain) series is used in a


variety of light-duty commercial and industrial applications. The hoists are predominantly used in general machine shop fabrication, assembly, storage and warehousing facilities. They are stocked at OZ Lifting’s Winona, Minnesota-based facility, where they are also tested, but supplied through a network of industrial equipment distributors in North America and overseas. Steve Napieralski, president at OZ


Lifting, said: “We now cover the breadth of the electric chain hoist market in terms of capacity, and offer a quality unit at a competitive price. Expansion of the range thusly strengthens our position in the market and gives existing and prospective customers double the capacity at their disposal at the top end of our portfolio.” Napieralski explained that two falls in the


OZ4000EC allow the body of the hoist to remain smaller and more lightweight; its net weight is only 84 lbs., while the OZ500EC, OZ1000EC and OZ2000EC weigh in at


18 lbs., 53 lbs. and 59 lbs. respectively. He also pointed to standout features including overload protection and the dual braking system. The die cast aluminum housing, meanwhile, contributes to portability. The product meets CE standards and H3


duty cycle rating, meaning it fits in the light / medium usage range. While OZ can rig custom chain lengths depending on the end user’s requirements, Napieralski stressed that this particular range isn’t targeted at harsh or special environments, which are better served by other products. Additional features of the EC range to


note are the forged carbon steel load hook with a heavy-duty latch; a load sheave that provides better distribution of the load and smooth lifting with reduced vibration and wear; grade 80 alloy steel chain; and durable vinyl chain bag, as standard. Napieralski added: “We have steadily


gained electric chain hoist market share and we have received positive feedback. Separately, the company announced


that is offering an expanded push beam trolley range with patented width adjustment


and locking mechanism, and glow-in-the- dark decals. The USA-manufactured trolley is fitted


to an I-beam and is typically paired with a manual or electric hoist. The range was first launched with 0.5-ton and 1-ton capacity models, but it recently expanded the line to include 2-ton and 3-ton capacity units. The product, which requires no tools for installation, is suited to applications where quick installation and durability is required. With regard to this product, Steve


Napieralski said: “The width adjustment system makes the trolley one of the fastest and easiest to install in the industry. Manufacturers sometimes have different standard I-beam widths, whether that is on a jib crane or gantry crane. There are also some building sites that utilize wide[r] flanges.” The range is entirely manufactured—and


stored—at the company’s facility in Winona, Minnesota, and offered worldwide through a distributor network. OZ offers 8-in., 12-in. and 16-in. flange widths on the 0.5-ton and 1-ton systems and an 8-in. flange width on the larger units. It also sells separately the rod
