Why choose a QX wire rope crane package?

QX crane packages are a total solution for your material handling needs. Your components are optimized to give you the right equipment, right when you need it! We have utilized our nearly 90 years in the material handling business to carefully engineer these packages to be tailored to any application or facility. Each package is designed specifically to make the most of your space, bringing you the best in safety, reliability and flexibility.

Better Safety

Every QX wire rope crane package comes equipped with a HoistMonitor or Hoistwatch load monitoring system. This system prevents overloads, monitors the equipment usage, and provides helpful advanced service warnings to help you keep your equipment running safely and avoid costly downtime. Our 4-position hoisting limit includes an innovate phase reversal position which prevents the block from running into and damaging the hoist in the event of phase reversal.

Less Maintenance

Sealed dust-proof brakes on the motors are self-adjusting and impregnated with Kevlar for high-performance wear, designed for over a million cycles. Standard inverter control motions on the trolley and bridge safely slows the motor speed to zero before the brake sets. This speed ramp up and ramp down time reduces load swing and extends the life of the motor brake. R&M is committed to helping you rise above with less maintenance, less downtime, lower repair costs — and reduced cost over the lifetime of your hoist equipment.
