A unique component of the overall gantry crane system, the spreader beam has a combined 46 ton lifting capacity. When used with an installed gantry system this provides the user access to a lift, move and rotate loads. Designed for an external maritime environment (the River Thames, London) this equipment can be easily adapted for less hostile environments and internal use also.
The spreader beam is fixed to the trolley by the wire rope. On top of the spreader beam, a hydraulic slewing drive is fitted. With this slewing drive the spreader beam can be rotated unlimited 360°. The lifting points, read link brackets, can be easily shifted along the castellated plates at each side of the spreader beam. The link brackets are an integral part of the spreader beam and excluded from the lifted load. The rigging is to be connected to the link brackets.
