The KITO expert team at GIFA advises on lifting solutions for foundry technology: KITO ER2, KITO EQ and KITO ED: electric chain hoists for each application

KITO ER2 electric chain hoist is installed in foundries, e.g. for assembly processes and precise positioning of the final fittings. It withstands all adverse environments. The KITO EQ electric chain hoist is small - and a strong addition to workplace cranes at production sites. The KITO ED electric chain hoist is a light, single-phased hoist for light loads up to 480 kg – stationary or mobile usage is possible.


All electric chain hoists are particularly easy to control and produce only a very low load swing. Absolute load control and precise placement of the load are guaranteed.

Ergonomic & compact: KITO manual chain hoists

Tested Safety: DGUV-GS certificated by German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV)

KITO CB hand chain block is able to manage the toughest applications – its little brother KITO CX mini hand chain block is one of the smallest and lightest hoists and is the preferred choice when the technician has to carry the hoist with him for reparations. The small tool is available in two variants with a load capacity of 250 kg or 500 kg. Overload protection (with slip clutch) is standard.

KITO LB lever hoist withstands the most difficult challenges and is particularly suitable for heavy pulling, lifting and tensioning applications due to its robust design with universal freewheel function. Loads of up to 9,000 kg can be lifted easily by guaranteeing full safety of the operator.

The lighter, more compact KITO LX lever hoist is responsible for lifting, pulling and positioning loads in the low load range (such as 250 kg or 500 kg). The lever hoist is mainly used where filigree parts have to be assembled in very confined spaces or at different working heights.
