How SpanSet SupraPlus round slings are used to move gear units

 alt=Facilitating lifting procedures while increasing safety at the same time: no problem for our round slings!

The Voith Turbo BHS Getriebe GmbH in Sonthofen has devoted its efforts, among other things, to the construction, manufacture and installation of high-performance gear units. The heavy machine components, which can weigh up to 65 t, have to be lifted more than just once on their way from the manufacturing hall until they are dispatched. In addition to the heavy weight, the asymmetrical design of the components and the partly sharp edges at the attachment points pose a challenge. No problem for the compact SupraPlus round slings in combination with ExoSet shackles. Contrary to wire ropes made of steel, the round slings are much lighter, the risk of damage to the component is much lower and the risk of accidents is considerably reduced. Other SpanSet products, such as PowerStar, Magnum-X, NoCut and secutex protective sleeves are also used at Voith on a daily basis. „The high quality and the resulting durability of the lifting gear, but also the training sessions and briefings are decisive factors for placing our trust in SpanSet products“, say Ralf Harden from the company Voith.

The SpanSet SupraPlus adapts to the load with virtually no creasing. In spite of its relatively slim design, it finds sufficient contact area even in smaller crane hooks and is not compressed. This helps to effectively prevent an impermissible loss of load capacity. A ribbed structure and woven textile wire make SupraPlus exceedingly robust. It meets the highest safety and quality standards worldwide. In addition to SupraPlus, SpanSet‘s Twintex and Liftfix complement the range of round slings for lifting weights ranging from 0.5 t to 8 t. The round slings are enveloped in a protective sleeve made of a special, robust polyester fabric that protects the core. During production, the sleeve and core are perfectly adapted to one another in order to prevent unwanted creasing. A firmly sewn label displaying the technical details offers additional safety in application. In addition to SupraPlus, Twintex and Liftfix can be optionally fitted with an RFID transponder. This enables the electronic identification and management of your lifting gear and saves time during regular inspections. Different protective sleeves also ensure trouble-free application – also when sharp edges are involved.
