Magnum-X sets the standards in lifting technology

Round slings for load capacity of 10 to 450 tonnes

SpanSet Magnum roundslings have been a sure solution for many years for extreme cases. And yet the demands of the customer are constantly increasing. They require products which are safe, but at the same time also easy to handle. As the loads are becoming heavier, the slings are also inevitably becoming larger and heavier. SpanSet nowadays provides roundslings with a load capacity of 450 tonnes. In order to manage the weight and improve the handling, SpanSet uses special high-performance fibres, which meet the requirements of the customers and facilitate the work.

Magnum X Lifting Slings

Light and compact for better handling

The Magnum-X is one such heavy duty sling. With this SpanSet has an extremely robust and compact roundsling in its portfolio for a standard load capacity between 10 and 450 tonnes. The load capacity, also the working load limit (WLL), gives the maximum authorised load for a lifting strap or a roundsling. It is always significantly lower than the breakload.

Higher reliability at reduced weight

The exceptional mark of the Magnum-X is its specially compact construction. Thanks to a core of load-carrying high-performance fibres and a compact outer sleeve, the Magnum -X is up to 50% narrower and lighter than comparable conventional textile roundslings. Consequently the Magnum-X can be applied to loads with narrower-edged radii whilst having the same load capacity. This means that also on smaller crane hooks and sling attachment points the roundsling will not be crushed. So in this way there are less creases and this clearly improves the abrasion behaviour, so there is no loss of load capacity. The roundsling Magnum-X is more cut and abrasion-resistant than conventional roundslings owing to the core of special fibres and ensures optimal safety and long life span even under the hardest operating conditions. In addition it enables easier handling, because it simply allows mounting above one's head.

Mistakes out of the question

A raised sewn-on label in a striking colour which indicates the load capacity has proved its worth as a safety feature. For this ensures that the load capacity can be seen from far away and even when soiled it is always clearly recognisable, thus avoiding mistakes in the choice of roundsling.

Protected label with RFID transponder

The roundsling is equipped with a tear and abrasion-resistant label. Integrated inside is an RFID chip which stores product data. It protects the Magnum-X from identity and data-loss and facilitates the storage of data for the certification service. The RFID transponder together with IDXpert, the SpanSet electronic product identification system enables professional data recording and management.
