The Titan is a hoist for applications requiring large capacity, speed, or long travel. The customizable packaged hoist is engineered and manufactured to user requirements yet provides the benefits of an off-the-shelf system. The high capacity and speeds make it suitable for applications including lighting, scenery, and shell ceilings. The hoist has an integrated gear motor and brake, and features an iron case for vibration and noise control. Features include zero-fleet design allows for a compact, efficient hoist; closed loop vector drives that provide pinpoint accuracy and can hold the load without a brake for added security; and a suite of load and safety features including slack line, over/under load, and cross-groove detection. Load monitoring, acoustic dampening, and safety covers can also be added. The hoist can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
