EXE technology Logo

The brand name EXE identifies a range of products designed for the entertainment & exhibition markets, offering a range of equipment engineered to safely manoeuvre stage equipment, scenery, video walls & other related structures… before, during and after your performance.

To us at TSA a chain hoist is not just a chain hoist, we can see design features that enhance the users ability to not only rig and operate the unit safely, but also to allow the owners the ability to expand and add to the hoists ability over time. We want our clients who invest into purchasing the our equipment to be able to upgrade as their needs develop over the years without having to reinvest heavily.

EXE Technology pride themselves on their quality and attention to detail throughout the design and manufacturing process. The technology you see inside the EXE hoists is not only some of the most advanced technology it’s also some of the most user friendly technology.  Every single component of the EXE-Rise hoist body is manufactured in Italy and the lifting chain is manufactured in Germany by RUD. The entire configuration complies with the strictest EN and DIN standards relating to lifting in the entertainment industry.

Just like us here at Theatre Safe Australia, EXE has a passion for rigging within the entertainment industry and have designed an incredible hoist specific for our industry. When designing these hoists there is one key part that is of the upmost importance to the design team, thats safety. There is nothing that the team focuses on more closely than the safety and of the hoists. The EXE hoists are designed with the unsurpassed safety features below:

  • Safety Factor of 8 as a standard minimum
  • 4 Limit Switches as standard (500kg models and up)
  • Doubles Brakes as standard
  • Chain end stops as standard
  • Rated connection point between chain and body of motor as standard
  • Rated chain bags
  • The clutch system is located outside the load path.
  • The DC brakes instantly react to electrical impulses thanks to a unique component specifically created for the EXE hoists.
  • Helical gears with dynamic lubrication

If you think that is impressive wait until you see what general features come as standard on the hoist…

  • Hoist body is black in colour
  • Luxurious reversible handles (so now it doesn’t matter which way the crew put in the road case)
  • Swivel Hooks
  • Inverting chain bags (without any modifications, just simply flip the hoist and the bag will follow)
  • A 5-pocket load wheel (for smooth operation)
  • Compact in size
  • Precise aluminium chain guide
  • Quite in operations (and we mean very quite)

All thats as standard… what could be left as optional features? Below are some of the optional extras that can turn your EXE hoist into a bespoke piece of equipment.

Encoders – fit your EXE chain hoists with the optional encoder to be able drive your chain hoist to any destination or save pre-set heights for your lighting trusses or PA hangs. This means you can keep those old tape measures in your tool box and stop playing around with those laser measures, just recall the position from the compatible controller pre-sets and the hoist will do all the work for you.  This encoder sits internal to the chain hoist so there is no external boxes or devices that can get broken easily, it is all tucked away nice and secure within the hoists body. Did we mention this is an upgradable option at any time? Yes, even if you bought your hoist 2 years ago when budgets were tight, you can still purchase this simple upgrade at any time and get it fitted to your hoists. It has been made that simple for you!

Load cell – Fit your EXE chain hoist with the optional internal load cell and know what loads you are lifting at any time, this load cell has a display unit built into the side of the hoists case or can send information directly back to your laptop. This ensures you can know exactly what load each of your chain hoists is carrying at any moment. You then have the ability integrate this information into your chain hoist control so if a hoist becomes over loaded then it can stop the motors from running whilst can rectify this issue.  Like our encoders this is an upgradable option, so just like the encoders you can get this load cell fitted to your existing EXE hoists at any time. These load cells come in both a cabled and a wireless battery-powered option.

So now you can see that the EXE hoist was designed for one person in mind… you, no matter who you are or what your needs are, now or in the future, the EXE hoist has you covered.

If you are looking for something a little more then a single speed chain hoist, then why not look at EXE-Rise Vario speed chain hoist range, these hoists can be controlled via Kinesys automation systems or by Raynok automation systems and can provide a variable speed automated chain hoist solution for your needs.

1.EXE Load Cell

The EXE-Rise LOAD CELL INTERFACE system works as a standalone load cell reader and is fully integrated in a chain hoist body to give riggers the possibility to see, in real time, the weight applied to the chain hoist during all rigging operations.

It features a self-powered electronic circuit board equipped with an LED display that’s built into a metal end cover that can replace the standard end cover of the hoist. The circuit board is connected to a special body hook with an integrated load cell reading system.

The electronics are designed to withstand shock loading that’s typical in the environment where hoists are used, and can handle working temperatures from -10 to +60 ° C and humidity up to 90%.
