Load Handling Devices  ( LHD ) / Hoist

A lifting device used to facilitate the work of transport and lifting loads and consists of supporting means, slings and lifting devices. A load-receiving means is not a hoist. A hoist is connected to the support means and the stop means secured to the support means.

An example of such a stop means is a lifting strap. Instead of a stop means is frequently a load receiving means, such as a hook connected to the supporting means. Important when working with heavy loads it is also to know the lifting device with LAM is abbreviated because the word is not written very often. Lifting equipment is in two categories, "LAM active" and "passive load-bearing means" divided. A passive load handling attachments can not bear the expense of their own or leave, because a separate drive is not present. Given this lack of independence aids are needed in order to operate efficiently. Such tools may include, but slants, guide pins or simple smooth surfaces, which take advantage of loads. This assistance does not require an active load handling attachments. It takes loads of itself, carries them and they are also self-employed again. Such active lifting accessories might include telescopic forks or belt conveyor. Not only lifting equipment is required to work with the expense. Very often the handling device is purchased, which is operated manually. It is particularly popular because it is so simple in its operation. Loads can be moved with the handling device through certain areas, it is a lifting aid. The handling device is operated electrically or pneumatically and can optionally also be used with a load receiving means together. Very important at work can also be a balancer, which said everything even easier. Served on him by a worker. Depending on the desired use of the device, the balancer is installed as fixed, but sometimes also held mobile. This has the consequence that a balancer in many different scenarios can be useful at work.


When lifting equipment for lifting and transporting loads are referred. When hoist generally apply the slings and chains. The chains are 80 in the special grade and now manufactured in grade 100, are equipped with test certificates and must be tested by the user in accordance with the accident prevention regulations (UVV) at regular intervals by qualified personnel. Another is called the hoist lifting belt sling.

Lifting device after DIN EN 13155 ( alt VGB 9a )

A lifting device is the combination of lifting equipment, slings and suspension elements.

Suspension elements

is a constant related to the lifting device for picking lifting equipment, slings or loads. Includes in addition to the support means the rope and chain drives also with the hoisting or lifting chain fixed to crane hooks, grabs, trusses and tongs.

FEM - FINITE element method

The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions to partial differential equations (PDE) and their systems, as well as integral equations. In simple terms, FEM is a method for dividing up a very complicated problem into small elements that can be solved in relation to each other. Its practical application is often known as finite element analysis (FEA) more...

Autodesk Inventor

Autodesk Inventor, developed by U.S.-based software company Autodesk, is 3D mechanical solid modeling design software for creating 3D digital prototypes used in the design, visualization and simulation of products. Autodesk Inventor competes directly with SolidWorks and SolidEdge and less directly with Creo Elements/Pro, CATIA, and NX (Unigraphics).
