Lifting Beams (sometimes referred to as Spreader Beams) are, at first glance, relatively simple devices. However, it takes a knowledgeable and experienced supplier to produce a lifting beam that is reliable, safe and maximizes the efficiency of a customer’s operation. Powlift manufactures Lifting Beams that are suitable for mill-duty service by incorporating keyed and welded connections, closed section members, reinforced joints and high strength alloy steel in wear or damage prone areas.
Sling Lifting Beams
Lifting beams (often called spreader beams also) are the backbone for connecting other lifting accessories such as slings, wire chokers, chains, etc.to form a complete lifting system. Fully customized configurations are available.
Custom Lifting Beams
For the most “unique” lifting applications, Powlift Engineers can design a completely custom lifting beam to suit your needs. Whether it is intended for heavy-duty production, or limited maintenance use, we will design the beam to your specific parameters. Unlimited configurations are possible.
Telescoping Lifting Beams
To meet customer requirements, Powlift engineers will often incorporate the ability to telescope (manual or motorized) and to rotate within the Multiple Pad Vacuum Lifter. Other factors that must be considered are temperature, porosity of the material and availability of vacuum or power sources on the crane.
Magnetic Lifting Beams
Lifting Beams can be custom-configured to accommodate your existing magnets for handling anything from single plates to rows of billets or bundles. Powlift offers fixed beam or manually adjustable and motorized adjustable designs to suit any lifting application. These rugged beams are designed to handle the heavy shock loads typical of magnet handling applications and can also be pre-wired to provide plug-and-play functionality.
