Variable instead of attached
If the centre of gravity of the load is not exactly beneath the crane hook the hook will hang at an angle when loaded with the attendant risk of the coil slipping off. Axzion-GKS, the specialist for load lifting gear in the worldwide SpanSet Group, has now developed the Vario coil hook for variable coil widths.
Interchangeable eye-suspension made of special high-tensile chain steel. The hooks of modern crane systems are considerably smaller and normal hooks fired from structural steel often no longer fit. The suspension is interchangeable and can be subsequently adjusted, e.g. when using the crossbeam in a different building or following the installation of a new crane.
With no load two heavy duty gas struts hold the crane hook suspension within the centre of gravity range. A heavy and bulky counterweight is no longer necessary.
One hook for all coil sizes
The centre of gravity of the load is quickly and easily changed and the suspension eye glides on its rollers to the lifting position. Decision makers will take note that only one hook has to be purchased. Downtime caused by the continuous replacement of the hooks on the crane is obviated.
Commercially available coil hooks are perfectly suited to one coil width of coil but where different coil sizes are handled different hooks must be used. If the centre of gravity of the load is not exactly beneath the crane hook the hook will hang at an angle when loaded with the attendant risk of the coil slipping off.
- The high quality coil hook can be protected through the use of secutex impact protection, a polyurethane compound material with outstanding toughness. secutex impact protection can be applied to the upper part of the prong and to the back inside portion
