VERLINDE has always been in the vanguard for innovative ideas and designs for lifting units with hooks (over 70 patents filed in France and world-wide).

The new EUROBLOC VM electric wire rope hoist has been designed based on VM type, but with a willingness to propose technical features that correspond to the most common demands of our clientele in order to focus on the essentials.



  • Electro mechanical load limiter deliver as standard (Mandatory equipment according “Machinery“ directive).
  • Hoisting limit switch.
  • 2 traveling speed.
  • Galvanized wire rope, high safety factor (Coef. 4,6 in 2m group).
  • 2 step traveling limit switch.
  • IP 55 protection on electric cubicle, oversize dimensions to place and protect all components.
  • Low voltage control (48 V) for higher safety.
  • Rotating hook with safety latch.
  • Complete documentation pack (hoist test certificate, hook and wire rope certificate, electric diagram, CE certificate).

Savings (use/maintenance)

  • 2 traveling and hoisting speed to optimize your production process.
  • Lifting brake designed for hoist unit lifetime in normal use.
  • Lifetime lubricated lifting gear box.
  • Electric cubicle offer easy access and optimize opening for maintenance operation. Cable entry are operate by plug in connector under the cubicle.
  • Lifetime lubricated traveling gear box.
  • Rope guide built “without spring” so that it can be more easily replaced during maintenance.
  • Very high performance for difficult environments.
  • Modular assembly concept to reduce number of spare parts.
  • Surface treatment. 2 components epoxy paint with 120? for greater protection.
  • Hoisting motor. 60 % operating factor and tropicalized as a standard for greater longevity.
  • Bearing of hook and hook block are lifetime lubricated. Pulley made from GGG cast iron.
  • A very high wire rope / drum diameter ratio which increases the longevity of the wire rope.
  • Control by pendant or radio emitter.

Hoist conception

  • Reduces the approach data of the hoist.
  • Reduces the “C” approach data of the hook. Reduce lateral motion of the hook when lifting.
  • Optimal positioning of steering rollers to share the load in order to optimize your tracks.
  • Available only in low headroom trolley and double girder trolley construction.
  • Lifting limit switch activate by hook block.
  • Overload indication by lighting or audible signal.
  • Variable speed for traveling.
