Rope Reevings and the Mechanical Advantages of tackle systems
Since 1969, Shupper-Brickle Equipment has provided hoists, bridge cranes, and custom-engineered systems to the Mid-Atlantic States and worldwide. And with nearly 50 years in the business, we have a lot of nifty, old-school diagrams on material handling physics. Check out this quick primer on the mechanical advantage created by using different wire rope configurations on wire rope hoists. Or, visit our Hoist Guy Blog to learn even more about overhead material handling!
