Modulift, the lifting equipment specialist based in Poole, Dorset in the UK have manufactured their first ever CMOD 250 corner units.
The CMOD 250 can achieve a WLL of 300t load and can reach spans of 20m x 20m, the corner units come with a new improved design that reduces the contact stresses between the top shackle bow and corner unit centre plate. The design has two rounded contact faces, enabling the shackle bow to contact efficiently.
Safe Lifting Europe B.V., a heavy lifting rental company based in the Netherlands was the first customer to receive these impressive pieces of equipment which will be used for a lift later in the year.
Jacques Vroegop, Operations Manager for Safe Lifting Europe B.V. said, “Modulift always have a solution for us when we have a complicated lift and we were surprised with the CMOD 250. The size of span that it can reach is phenomenal, it really can be a huge frame and we can’t wait to use it later in the year.”
A second set of CMOD 250 corner units conforming to ASME cat B are being shipped to the United States shortly to facilitate a heavy lift for a shipbuilding company via Modulifts partner, I&I SLING CO.
John Baker, Commercial Director for Modulift said, “Our CMOD spreader frame range is a firm favourite with our customers and the demand for the product has gone from strength to strength. One of the key selling points of the CMOD system is it’s compatibility with the standard Modulift struts, customers that already have Modulift struts can easily transform a beam into a frame by adding Corner Units. We are really looking forward to seeing both sets of CMOD 250 in action this year.”
