New special construction in lifting technology


Certex GmbH has received large new orders for a total of 5 large special construction projects in lifting technology. It concerns large load handling equipment for crane applications where Certex uses a lot of machine building in. The project are carried out by Certex GmbH in Düsseldorf. The reason why these orders are placed with Certex is the great application advantages.

Projects in the special construction

Often, customer- specific design tasks are put to CERTEX. Numerous projects have been carried out in custom-made constructions by CERTEX.
In this sample a spreader beam was developed and manufactured, which raises a generator.
The task to be solved was that all four contact points are load-bearing the same.
To compensate for the length tolerances on the slings, a rocker was inserted, which bridges the length tolerance.
The sling shackles were selected in the correct ratio and attached to the spread beam.

CERTEX Germany successfully realizes special constructions!


Since many years Certex Lifting & Service plans, develops and realizes successfully
Special solutions in load and lifting technology. As a competent and flexible partner
the industry, the Certex team of engineers has lifting know-how in almost all
Industrial sectors.

For a special project, a turning traverse was used for the horizontal 
turning of sharp-edged components of different lengths.

Battery-powered drive - no power required from crane.

The technical challenge lies in using the turning traverse to carry out the work,
to improve the process. Battery operated, a frequency converter provides a gentle
Start of rotation and infinitely variable speed control.
The rotation speed is 1 to 4 revolutions per minute.
With this solution, safer and faster operations can be achieved.

With a double single-strand chain suspension, the cross beam can be attached to a
single or double hooks can be attached.

The turning traverse is suitable for large workpiece lengths up to 8 m and weights up
to 1.5 t. is laid out.
Two rubberized rollers with compartments on the traverse sides allow for
good torque transmission to the lifting straps.
With the PU-coated belts, the sharp-edged workpieces are reliably turned around.
The flexible load is attached to four lifting straps.
Lifting belt widths from 30 mm to 80 mm can be used.
