SAMSUNG MACHINERY is a manufacturer specializing in core parts for unloading machinery - hoists, cranes, saddles, and geared motors. It is well-known especially for its Electric Chain Hoist which is an essential component for cranes to lift heavy containers. This particular hoist has a variety of advantages over its rivals. The key strength is the slip clutch gear as a limit switch for raising and lowering the hoist. When a hoist goes up or down, it should possess the ability to stop abruptly at the end. However, if the machinery is too old and corroded, and the switch does not work properly, the hoist may continue going up or down, subsequently crashing into the surroundings above or below it. This can cause a breakdown of the machinery or damaged goods. The slip clutch gears of SAMSUNG MACHINERY, however, enable the hoist to spin with no traction in order to prevent it from going up or down past a predetermined limit. The company was the first manufacturer to develop the gear in Korea, doing so in 1996.

When the power is turned on, the motor runs slowly at first, proceeding to run fast while going up and slow down again at the end. A certain amount of copper inside the motor drives it, creating a magnetic field. Usually, the low and high speed is created with one coil. As such, if the motor breaks down, engineers should wait until technicians come to repair. However, SAMSUNG MACHINERY makes two separate coils for low and high speed, so that even if one breaks down, the other is still operational as a failsafe.

Suspension type

Unlike exposed areas such as steel mills or ports, general hoists creating dust cannot be used for clean room plants of pharmaceutical companies or semiconductors. SAMSUNG MACHINERY covers the machinery with Steel Use Stainless (SUS), which is not prone to rust, and corrosion, as well as ensuring that dust created inside does not come out. Its clean room hoist is currently used by Samsung Semiconductor. Also, when engineers oil the machinery to make it work smoothly, it might fall onto other parts. SAMSUNG MACHINERY has taken precautions and put grease instead prevent it from falling.

Motor trolley type

Its chain hoist is used by Hyundai Heavy Industries, POSCO, Hyundai Steel, and Samsung Electronics. SAMSUNG MACHINERY has been exporting its products to global markets including Europe, North and South America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa countries.
