The new video cube hangs imposingly from the roof of the modernised ice hockey stadium of the SCL Tigers in Langnau. With a total weight of over 5 tonnes, it is suspended from three GIS electric chain hoists. The three motors, each with a lifting force of 2000 kg, raise or lower the cube synchronously into the desired position.

The Swiss manufacturer GIS is investing in the future and expanding its successful LP series of electric chain hoists with the LP1600 and LP2500 motors. A lifting capacity range of up to 6300 kg can now be covered. For holding loads above people (D8 Plus), the LP2500 enables a previously unattainable lifting capacity of 2500 kg in a 1 fall version. At the same time, the new GHF/GMF generation of manual and motorised trolleys is being launched.
As a supplement to the D8 Plus motors, which have enjoyed a successful introduction to market, GIS - Switzerland’s only electric chain hoist manufacturer - is set to launch two new D8 models in 2020.
