Your global supplier for large industrial motors


Crane duty motors

MENZEL crane motors for the heaviest lifting operations, with up to 600 starts per hour.

Crane duty motors or drives for hoisting facilities must be rated for short-term or periodic duty. MENZEL crane motors are available in operating classes S2, S3 and S4, and are therefore suitable for all lifting applications. They are designed for up to 600 starts per hour, and are extremely low maintenance.

In addition, our crane motors are particularly stable and robust. This also ensures the quiet, reliable operation of your crane systems and hoisting facilities, even in the event of mechanical shocks, possible vibrations, or overloads.

MENZEL crane motors are designed for the heaviest lifting operations.They are available not only with direct current motors or three-phase asynchronous motors, but also with squirrel cage motors and slip ring rotors in the case of three-phase motors.

Crane motors for special operating requirements – Characteristics

Crane motors must comply with particular operating requirements. With our crane motors, we guarantee a high overload capacity, and a large speed control range.

Our crane drives are designed with very high tilting torque, so that they can be started up reliably, even in the event of possible voltage fluctuations, and at full load. The torque reserves of our crane motors are designed so that they can withstand high impact loads. Moreover, they have an overload capacity of up to 150%.

Customer-specific production and reproduction of hoist motors

MENZEL specializes in the customer-specific production of hoist motors. We construct crane motors specifically for your special requirements.

As well as customer-specific production, we can also make exact replicas of crane motors. Do you use older motors in your hoisting facilities, but want a suitable mechanical and electrical replacement? MENZEL is an expert in creating exact replicas of electric motors. You can therefore continue to use your cranes and hoisting facilities without any problems.

At the same time, we can modernize the cranes when creating replicas of them. This improves the performance and drive dynamic of your cranes, and simultaneously ensures significantly lower power consumption during no-load operation.This will save you money.
