The Challenge

Our customer’s operation required a lifting solution to safely lift, handle and lower uneven loads like engine parts with a maximum lifting capacity of 500kg. In order to facilitate this requirement, the lifting beam would need to include adjustable drop centres, as well as a design feature to address the centre of gravity challenges when lifting and handling uneven loads.

The Solution

We designed a bespoke load-leveller lifting beam with an adjustable sliding centre of gravity complete with sliding stops for our customer. The lifting beam has a knob to adjust the centre of gravity specifically designed to facilitate the safe lifting, handling and lowering of uneven loads, in accordance with our customer’s requirements.

The bespoke lifting beam also features 4 adjustable drop centres with 340mm of chain, and each chain has a safety bow shackle attached at one end to attach to the load during lifting or lowering. In our customers operation the shackles would be attached to engine parts and the centre of gravity adjusted before lifting commenced.
