What’s a Hoist Motor, and How Does It Work?
The term “hoist” is commonly used to describe any sort of equipment which is designed to lift and lower a load. Most hoists operate on a simple pulley principle, gaining leverage through the use of a drum or lift-wheel around which the cable, wire rope, or chain wraps. The most common type of overhead hoist used in industrial environments depends upon a special electric motor for providing the needed lifting and lowering force for heavy loads. In most cases, the hoist couples to its load by means of a lifting hook mounted to the end of the cable or chain. In addition to electric chain hoists and electric wire rope hoists, there are also many other sorts of winches, levers, trolleys, and hand chain hoists which can be used for specific applications.
What Can Lead to Hoist System Failures?
Because a hoist is a connected system comprised of many moving parts, there are several areas where things can potentially break down or result in a problem. Here are a few of the more common issues we see with hoists and electric hoist motors at AES:
Overload hardware stresses
Hooks and rigging components are designed for specific types and ranges of loads. Asking your hoist to do more than it was designed to be able to handle can result in cracked, bent, stretched, or broken hardware.
Wire rope or cable problems
One of the most common issues that can arise is damage to the cable itself. These metal wires can become corroded, worn, or frayed over time, even with normal usage. Wires can also become crimped or compressed, and can even be cut in some circumstances.
A hoist system designed for heavy loads must be kept in proper alignment. Even a slight misalignment can put undue stress and strain on your equipment, and can result in some major problems. If you hear any unusual noises, see any wheels or moving parts which aren’t operating properly, or notice your electric motor to be struggling, straining, or working harder than it should, stop operations immediately and give the AES team a call at (866) 386-1001.
Electric motor problems or electrical system issues
Sometimes your electric hoist motor just comes to the point in its service life where it simply needs to be rewound in order to continue functioning properly. Our team is an expert at rewinding all sorts of electric motors, servos, and drives. Other threats to your electrical system include poor contacts, contaminant infiltration, corrosion, overheating, and faulty pendants or other control devices.
