Calculation of Starting torque for Hoist application
Posted 14 August 2005 - 10:40 PM
I would like to know the method of calculation for starting torque for hoist applications. I mean how to determine starting torque for given hoist load.

My suggestion is that you shouldn't do it and rather get an experienced engineer involved. You are dealing with safety issues and can't be relied upon if you don't know how to calculate. You can cause some serious damage or injury. Rather safe ...safety comes first...Get an experienced person involved.

Thanks for your reply. Basically i would like to know torque v/s speed characteristics of given hoist load. By knowing torque v/s speed characteristics of the load, then i can select a motor which meets load characteristics. This is what i trying to do.
Guidance in this regard is highly appreciated.

Thanks for your reply. Let us assume a hoist which is rated for 900 lbs and its dead Weight is 180 lbs. Can you guide me what is the method of calculating or measuring starting torque for the above said load? You are welcome to assume other relevant details like pully dia etc.,

If you were serious about obtaining data for a true application I am expecting some very firm data. Not, "You are welcome to assume other relevant details..."
I can see this is just a danger waiting to happen.
Hit the local library and do some reading on basic mechanical calculations in determining torque requirements. That way you might learn more than your actual question.
Don't be afraid to learn....go hit the books!!
