Our range of steel lifting and spread beams includes four point lifting frames and centre eye lifting beams, both with the option of fixed or adjustable drop centres.
Lifting beams, spreaders and frames can be designed for general purpose or as bespoke beams for a specific use with a planned range of lifts.
Lifting beams, etc. are used for a variety of purposes which can include Reduce required headroom when lifting loads, Provide multiple lifting points, Offer a means of handling out of balance loads, Provide lifting points at adjustable centres, Provide a vertical lift with controlled or no inward pull for eyebolts and similar lifting points and loads which must be protected from crushing force and A means of handling loads requiring special attachments such as hooks, plate clamps, etc.
Our customer operates within the hydro-power sector and required a robust lifting solution to manage loads with varying weights in an industrial operation.
The customers intended application is to lift large and cumbersome machinery, so the application required the maximum possible height of lift. Due to the varied size and weight of the loads, our customer required a 10,000kg safe working load (SWL) and the weight of the load would need to be distributed evenly during lifting, ensuring a safe and controlled lift. The lifting solution required should be flexible, configurable in a low headroom environment and rated to the correct lifting capacity.READ MORE
Our customer, a global leading producer of aero engines for large civil aircraft and corporate jets required a lifting beam that could safely lift, handle and lower uneven loads.
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.READ MORE
Our customer urgently required a lifting solution to work with their existing jib crane and electric chain hoist configuration that could replace their existing manual handling process for a 30kg tool component.
As well as urgency, another challenging aspect of this project was the customers need for a solution that would enable operators to safely lift the tooling approximately 400mm into the machine and then hand position it.READ MORE
