More than 30 years of manufacturing experience is behind the TU-TIRFOR range of lifting and pulling machines. Available in four sizes – 800kg to 4000kg – they offer portability, safety and precision.
The unique rectilinear operation enables the machines to operate in any direction and for any height of lift or length of pull. Lifting and pulling power can also be increased with the use of sheave blocks.
Tirfor hoists have two ‘U’ shaped jaw blocks which preserve the cylindrical form of the wire rope to ensure there is no deformation and very little wear of the rope
The Tirfor system provides high mechanical efficiency which ensures ease of operation and longer service life
Accidental release is precluded and the self-gripping action of the jaws is maximised
Tirfors are used in applications across industry, including civil engineering, construction, mining, pipe laying, shipbuilding, agriculture and forestry.
It is a hoist, winch, tensioner, binder, ratchet – and much more
It has the lowest weight to capacity ratio of any hoist or winch with comparable capacities
It’s unique wire rope gripping system provides unlimited pulling length or lifting height and pinpoint accuracy in positioning any work load
It is simply designed and ruggedly constructed with the finest alloy heat-treated steel. The load is automatically held securely, with a large overload margin of safety
for all construction and maintenance jobs. It is used daily by millions of people all over the world
By using sheave blocks on the hauling rope, the nominalcapacity of TIRFOR machines can be multiplied two, threeor even four times as shown in the diagram.
