Overhead Cranes

Die-Kat Inc. offers both standard and customized overhead cranes available in single and double configurations for top and under running applications. Ranging from 1-1/2 ton to 75 tons, cranes manufactured have up to 70-foot span lengths. Whether in light industrial applications to heavy unique and demanding environments, a robust and durable crane will meet your duty cycles, lifting capacities and budget.

Ergonomic Design:

In limited space applications, the cranes are designed according to your requirements and are made extremely compact where necessary with the lowest headroom possible. A close trolley approach maximizes the length of the runway use

Safety First:

With safety in mind, standard features include bridge slow down switches, overload switches, push-button pendant on a separate track, standard frequency drives to provide more control and to avoid swinging loads, trolley brakes with a lifetime warranty and bumpers.


Depending on your requirements, Die-Kat Inc. can supply either just the components or to supplying and installing an entire crane solution.

Hoists, Pulleys, Winches

As a Master Distributor for R&M, there is a wide variety of hoists available from electric / manual chain hoists up to 5 ton capacities and wire rope hoists up to standard 20 ton lifting capacities. Larger sizes can be custom built.

For electric wire rope applications, standard configurations include normal headroom, low headroom and double girder trolley designs. Three hoist frame sizes (in both short ton and metric ratings) are available to meet a variety of application requirements:

· ½ ton - 10 ton (500 - 10,000 kg) capacities
· 19'8" - 78'8" (5.9 - 24m) heights of lift
· Lift speeds 20/3 - 62/10 fpm
· 2.9 - 24 HP (2.2 - 18.0 kw) hoist models
· 208, 230, 460, 575/3/60 or 380/3/50 supply

An innovative design that includes a large drum diameter gives Spacemaster SX hoists the lowest headroom and best wheel loads in the industry, while providing near true vertical lift, with exceptional hook approaches and heights of lift.

Unique features include new maintenance-free, lifetime-adjusted, sealed brakes; a two-speed hoist motor; and trolley inverter control. A NEMA 4 control enclosure is also standard. Spacemaster SX hoists are designed to meet and exceed ASME H4 duty (FEM 2m & 3m) ratings and provide the ultimate in easy load handling, safe operation and lasting, trouble-free performance.

Ease of Operation

Large-diameter hoist drum means easy positioning, closer approaches.
The larger rope drum diameter provides nearly true vertical lift with a single reeved hoist -- only 1/8" drift per foot of lift. The result is exceptionally smooth movement and fast load positioning. This innovative design also means a shorter frame length, allowing closer end approaches.

Hoist and trolley motors designed for space savings and productivity.
Standard two-speed hoist motor (6:1 ratio), designed specifically for hoisting applications, offers high starting torque and ensures precise and reliable load handling.

This motor is class F insulated, 30 minute rated (60% effective duty), thermally protected and totally enclosed.

The trolley motor's standard inverter control offers two-step or infinitely variable speed control for smooth acceleration and deceleration; minimal load swing; fast, efficient handling; and accurate load placement.


Safety features others don't offer--or offer at extra cost--are standard.
An electromechanical load limit switch prevents the lifting of loads that are in excess of 110% of rated capacity. The 4-position hoist limit switch includes a new phase mismatch protection circuit that prevents the block from running up and damaging the hoist in the event of phase reversal.

Durable, lifetime-rated, adjustment-free brakes, hardened ground gears, thermal motor protection, exceptional rope life and ergonomic hook block design with sturdy safety latch contribute to the hoist's safe operation and increased reliability.

Long Life

Innovative gearbox provides dependable operation and extends equipment life.

The innovative gear case design reduces stress on drum bearings, reducing the need for maintenance while extending component life. It features hardened and ground internal reduction gears driving an external drum gear located on the inner surface of the rope drum. The gearbox's semi-fluid grease lubrication also helps to extend its working life. With no load brake, the gear case runs cooler and more efficiently.

Larger hoist drum minimizes rope wear and enhances cooling.
A drum/rope diameter ratio of approximately 40:1 minimizes rope flex, reducing wear and extending rope life. The drum's large capacity also contributes to a reduction in frame size and weight, reducing wear on hoist components and enabling the use of more cost-effective crane girders. The unique placement of the hoist motor inside the drum provides directed airflow through the drum for optimal motor cooling. This design also makes the motor and brake more easily accessible.
