New Modulift products2 August 2019
As a direct response to requests, Modulift has launched the Adjustable Modular Lifting Beam and the Trunnion Drop Link.
“The Adjustable Modular Lifting Beam offers the same flexibility and cost-effective benefits as the premium Modulift Spreader Beams but has multiple pad eyes, so the beam can adapt to lift various weights and sizes,” Modulift said.
It is available in a series of three: light (up to 50t), medium (up to 170t) and heavy (up to 240t). It can be used as a lifting beam or a semi spreader beam.
The manufacturer added that the modular system reduces transport costs, as the longest component length is 6m.
The Trunnion Drop Link is an alternative trunnion option that can be easily and quickly attached to a sling. It requires only one top shackle, thus enabling safer and quicker sling attachment. This drop link is compatible with Modulift spreader beams from MOD6 up to MOD110 with a capacity of up to 55t. It works with flat webbing slings up to the MOD50 and wire rope and synthetic slings up to the MOD110.
Modulift’s technical director, Sue Spencer said: “Our standard lifting beam is already a brilliant product, so we thought the only way to make it better was to make it adjustable. Lots of our customers have different requirements to move a variety of fixed sized objects like metal skids—so rather than have lots of different sized beams, they can just have one that is size adjustable. This is so much more efficient for our clients.
“With the trunnion drop link, we responded to a request from our customer, RRS Group. It already had our beams and wanted compatible drop links.”
