elebia®, the automatic hook of the future, will boost the safety and productivity of your cranes. elebia®, the most innovative crane hook ever, allows you to hook on and release any load remotely. The patented automatic hook is equipped with a magnet in its lower section. When the magnet is close to the load, it attracts and correctly positions the sling. The operator pushes the control button, the hook closes, catches the ring and lifts the load without any additional handling. The automatic crane hook works with cable slings, chains slings, master links, textile slings and even big bags. With the unique elebia® automatic hook, you will be able to pick up and release loads remotely, avoiding any handling and moving, minimising risks, enhancing safety and increasing productivity.
How does it work?
The automatic safety hook lifts and releases the load remotely. The remote crane hook generates a magnetic field that attracts and orients the sling, masterlink or rigging gear. The operator then presses the “close” button on the remote control to automatically close the hook, without any manual intervention, operating remotely from a safe distance.
We’ve re-designed the high capacity battery to improve efficiency and minimise energy consumption of the automatic hook. The battery is fully charged in 3 hours, and allows up to 5.000 cycles or 250 hours in standby mode.
Designed to work in the toughest conditions (steelworks, ports, low temperatures) and built with the best materials. WELDOX body of high strength steel, forged hook type T or V.
The elebia® automatic hook was designed to enhance safety and increase productivity. It is designed under a failsafe principle. The automatic hook CAN NOT drop a suspended load. This is a feature of all
our designs, geometrically failsafe, without any sensors or electric components.
The elebia® automatic hooks come with a unique magnetic system, formed by 32 neodymium permanent magnets placed in a precise configuration that generate an orientated magnetic field with 3 functions: attract, center and orientate the masterlink. This basic component, which is present in all our automatic hooks, is what allows the remote engage of loads.
Other options can also be configured with the automatic hooks:
A sensor in the magnet indicates when the masterlink is attached to it. This info is displayed in the eMAX remote control. Units with the magnet sensor can be configured in ‘Autoclose Mode’: the hook will automatically close when the magnet sensor detects the ring is in position. The magnet sensor’s sensitivity/trigger level can be adjusted to customer needs.
Recommended for: Applications when it is difficult to see the lifting point. Automated processes, as the magnet sensor info can be used by the PLC controlling the crane.
Increased magnetic power.
Recommended for: Applications where the lifting point is weakly attracted by the magnet (some stainless steels). Applications where the hook is below a long wire rope, and a lot of swinging makes it difficult to catch the masterlink.
Power Magnet & Rigid Safety Latch
Instead of the standard safety latch (movable, spring loaded), this is a fixed latch, forming a complete closed loop along with the automatic hook.
Recommended for: Applications when the lifting points are fixed rings (eyebolts, handles, etc…). Learn more…
Void, No Magnets
No magnetic system.
Recommended for: Applications when only a remote release is needed.
The complete range of automatic hooks can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This load cell is precise, reliable, rugged, compact and fully integrated into the hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit. The load cell is highly recommended for preventing overloads and for load control. Load cells can also be retrofitted into older models of our hooks.
