Below Hook Lifters vs. End Effecters
The difference between a below hook lifter and an end effecter is that a below hook lifter normally attaches to a crane or a hoist hook. An end effecter is a lifting device that attaches directly to the arm of a manipulator or a manipulator control.
CraneWerks can help you with your below hook lifting apparatus needs. We offer load-rated chain and nylon web rigging in many configurations to satisfy most any need. We also carry a wide variety of spreader beams, roll lifters, coil lifters, sheet lifters, pallet lifters and other custom devices.
No crane job is complete until you’ve got a plan for the proper rigging attachments. Many times this can be the hardest part of the project. CraneWerks can help by designing a custom lifter or end effecter to pick up your specific part.
