[INDUSTRY NEWS] Mother nature also decided to throw in an

extra challenge as the wind started to pick up. Extra care was needed to ensure the boat was held and lifted correctly – another reason why the stability of the Modulift CMOD Spreader Frame was the perfect choice on this occasion. Karl Chapple, Depot Manager from

SafetyLiftinGear said, “It was great to work on a project that had played such an important part of history. Although the windy weather threw in extra challenges, the steadiness of the CMOD12 meant that the lift was still able to go ahead as planned”. The lift was carried out by King Liftings

LIEBHERR LTM1060-3.1 60 tonne crane using the Modulift CMOD 12 with slings all supplied by SafeyLiftinGear. The CMOD 12 Spreader Frame was chosen as it can lift a maximum SWL of 16t. Tony Walsh, Depot Manager at King

Lifting, was keen to be involved in the project after spending 24years in the Army at 17 Port & Maritime and had been involved in multiple, varied lifts over that time. Speaking about the lift, he said; “I was fortunate enough to be able to

attend site on the day she was finally removed from the workshop and lifted from the cradle where she had spent 8 years, onto the awaiting transport to be driven down the coast in preparation for launch. A very small phase in the grand scheme of the project, that sees Dorian now back at sea and preparing to take part in D Day celebrations in May this year”. Tony visited the site on numerous occasions

prior to the lift and liaised with Karl from SafetyLiftinGear to ensure the correct Modulift beams were available for the day. The Modulift CMOD Spreader Frame is

the perfect choice for when there are height restrictions during a lift as the height of the rig will be lower than a “1 over 2” rig. Additionally, it was a higher degree of static indeterminacy than a “1 over 2” rig which provides greater stability in windy conditions. The Modulift CMOD corner units impart high level of lateral stability to the frame and the slings due to its 45-degree orientation. Harshal Kulkarni, Engineering Manager

at Modulift, explains the difference between the 1 over 2 rig and the Spreader Frame. “The CMOD Spreader Frame and the ‘1 over 2’ rig achieve similar lifts; however, they are not direct substitutes of each other. The ‘1 over 2’ rig option is most economical if there is no height restriction, however the CMOD Spreader Frame proves efficient for low headroom lifts. The CMOD Spreader Frame


is quicker to assemble due to less rigging than the 1 over 2 rig”. The CMOD Spreader Frame is one

of Modulift’s most economical options for lifting as it’s designed to expand the capabilities of the Modular Spreader Beam System. The struts from the Spreader Beam range can be simply combined with 4 Corner Units to complete the frame. enabling customers to achieve 4- Point lifts, making this a versatile solution. The Modulift CMOD Spreader Frame

range is available from the CMOD 6 up to the CMOD 250 which will lift up to 300t. y

Harrington Hoists, Inc. Releases TCK Series Air Hoists, Introduces New Capacities to TCL Series

> Harrington Hoists, Inc. has announced the release of their TCK series air hoist line. These hoists are designed for fast lifting requirements in demanding industrial settings and are available in 3 Ton and 6 Ton capacities in both pendant or cord control. Harrington’s

TCK hoists have an unlimited duty cycle for continuous operation and very fine feathering control for precise load positioning. These hoists feature a powder coated finish for weather resistance, cast iron housing for strength and durability and nickel-plated load chain for resistance to corrosion and wear. Other standard features include an internal

disk brake that is protected from harsh environments and an adjustable overload limiter that will automatically block air flow when an overload is detected. Separately Harrington has expanded their

high-performance TCL series Lube Free air hoist line to include 3 Ton and 6 Ton capacities. Previously released TCL capacities included ¼ through 1 Ton models. These air hoists operate without air supply lubrication, which leaves the surrounding environment free of oil mist from air exhaust.

Harrington’s TCL hoists have an unlimited

duty cycle for continuous operation, and extremely fast lifting for applications where speed is critical. These hoists feature precise load positioning with either pendant or cord control and an adjustable overload limiter that will automatically block air flow when an overload is detected. TCL air hoists are recommended for food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Standard features of the 3 and 6 Ton TCL

models include cast iron housing for strength and durability, a proven weather resistant powder coated finish, an internal disc brake that is protected from harsh environments. y

Crane Industry Services Adds Business Development Manager

> Crane Industry Services (CIS) expanded its team with the addition of Ray Rice, Business Development Manager. Rice brings more

than 20 years of experience from the heavy equipment, aerospace and defense industry. “Ray is well versed in how simulation-based training, software tools, and technology can be leveraged to improve proficiency of equipment operators and is familiar with CM Labs Vortex simulators,” said Debbie Dickinson, CEO of CIS. CIS utilizes a variety of simulation

tools, including the new Vortex Edge Plus and Vortex Advantage, in the delivery of a variety of craft and safety leadership training, qualification, and testing programs. In addition, CIS is an authorized re-seller of CM-Labs Vortex simulators. Rice will be responsible for delivering

crane operator and rigger training solutions for military, utility, port, and construction industries. As an accredited NCCER training sponsor, CIS also has access to more than 80 different construction curriculum and assessment programs. In addition, Rice will lead

implementation of CIS’ newest behavioral simulation tools in Leading Safety Works(TM), a project management safety program. The program is based on a practical 90-day planning system that makes problem- solving immediately effective and replicable. The system helps project leaders and managers identify critical opportunities to
