Always a nominal thickness lower than grade 8.

RUD chains made from patented ICE-Material can substitute grade 8 chains of the next highest nominal thickness thanks to their extremely high strength. The decisive advantage: An ICE-Lifting mean or lashing chain is more than 30 percent lighter and the working ergonomics are noticeably improved

Higher WLL with the same diameter.

RUD chains and components of grade 10 (VIP) offer up to 30 percent higher WLL than grade 8 with the same chain diameter. This means that VIP-Chains from 20 mm upwards are always one nominal thickness thinner, while their weight is reduced by up to 50 percent

TRADITION MEETS FUTURE.

Time and again, RUD is at the forefront of important developments. Many things considered standard today for lifting and lashing originated from RUD’s think tank. In 1953, RUD was the first chain manufacturer to receive the inspection stamp H1 for high-strength chains, in 1972 it was the first to receive approval for grade 8 (H1-8) and in 2007 for round steel chains of the highest grade 12 (D1-12) (ICE). To simplify test processes, we have long equipped many products with RFID transponders as standard and offer a complete hardware and software system for efficient test management. The latest milestone: In 2019, RUD presented the first lifting point that “thinks” and can thus avoid dangerous transverse loads. There is still a lot for us to do, join us into the future.

WHAT IS A CHAIN SUSPENSION IN ACTUAL FACT?

In the world of lifting means, chain suspensions form the connection between the sling and the load. It consists of several components. Suspensions can be purchased fully configured – depending on the weight, size and shape of the load.

 

Components of a suspension are:

 

  • Master link

  • Chains (in one or several strands)

  • End component (e. g. hooks)

  • Any connecting elements (to connect two chains)

  • Any shortening elements (to shorten chains)

  • Any further elements (e. g. balancer)

OPTIMAL CONFIGURATION OF CHAIN SUSPENSIONS.

FROM THE MASTER LINK TO THE FINAL COMPONENT:
WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER.

From the master link to the final component: Configuring chain suspensions is full of challenges. Safety and efficiency are the top priorities for us. As a globally recognised specialist in the field of lifting and moving loads, we support you in your daily lifting tasks. With our ICE- and VIP-Construction kits, for example, we have created the basis for ensuring that RUD components with different WLL cannot be accidentally combined. On these pages, you will learn how to configure your individual suspension optimally for your respective applications.

Page 13
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_

WHICH REQUIREMENTS DOES A CHAIN SUSPENSION HAVE TO FULFIL?

Approval.

The standards DIN EN 818, DIN EN 1677 and E DIN 21061 guarantee a maximum of safety in the manufacture of chains. Lifting means that are approved and tested in accordance with these international standards are authorised by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) to bear the so-called H-stamp. Do you value quality and safety? Then check whether your lifting means has an H-stamp.

Identification.

Furthermore, every lifting chain has an identification tag from the manufacturer, which must be permanently fixed to the chain. Among other things, it provides information on the WLL, the nominal diameter and the grade. If this tag is missing, you must not use the chain, since important characteristic values of the chain and thus of the suspension cannot be determined. VIP- and ICE-Identification tags from RUD also serve as chain gauges.

Safety factor.

For lifting chains, the safety factor 4 is required by law. This means that the manufacturer must prove that the breaking load of the lifting chains is at least four times its working load limit (WLL). Incidentally, since wire ropes and textile lifting means have a lower elongation under load and thus a lower energy absorption capacity than lifting chains, higher safety factors (5 or 7) apply to them.

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF A CHAIN SUSPENSION WHEN LIFTING?

Chain suspensions can be configured very flexibly according to the load to be lifted. The variety of available components and WLL is high, so that a large number of lifting tasks can be solved with one suspension. For example, the chain of a suspension can be easily and safely extended or shortened with special components. This allows the length of the chain strands to be adapted to the shape or weight distribution or centre of gravity of the load.

Attention: If you assemble suspensions yourself, you may only use lifting chains! Lashing chains are not permitted for lifting applications, as they have a different safety factor than lifting chains.

Page 14
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-14 .jpg

CONFIGURATION OF A CHAIN SUSPENSION:
WHAT QUESTIONS DO YOU NEED TO ANSWER FOR YOURSELF?

To select the individually suitable components for a chain suspension, you need answers to some important questions in advance. As soon as you know the answers, we recommend our digital suspension configurator at www.rud.com. Enter all required values here – and then you will receive a precise suspension recommendation.

1. What load (weight) should be transported or lifted with the chain suspension?

In order to select lifting chains and other suspension components with the correct WLL, you must know the weight of the load to be lifted. It is the first and most important value which you need for your suspension calculation.

 

2. How many strands should the suspension have?

Loads that are to be lifted using a chain suspension have already mounted lifting points or other attachment options sometimes. Their number depends on factors such as symmetry or asymmetry, centre of gravity and the shape of the load. As far as possible, all attachment options must be used for the lifting operation. Therefore, the number of strands of the used suspension results from their quantity. A suspension can have up to four strands. Attention: According to DGUV rule 100-500, the single strand WLL applies in the event of asymmetrical loading of a multiple strand suspension.

 

3. What usable length should the suspension have?

Depending on the height of the hall, the height of use and the size of the load, you need a certain usable length for your suspension. The permissible angle of inclination β of the suspension, which is indicated in this catalogue for each suspension, is also important. It must lie between 0° and 60° (calculated from the vertical). If the angle of inclination ß is more than 60°, you must increase the usable length of the suspension so that the angle is less than 60°.

 

4. What is the distance to the existing lifting points?

The distance between the lifting options used has an effect on the angle of inclination β of the suspension. This distance is therefore taken into account in the formula for calculating the optimum suspension.

Calculating the suspension correctly.

1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-15 .jpg

5. Where is the centre of gravity of the load?

Depending on whether the shape of the load to be lifted is symmetrical or asymmetrical, there are different requirements for the suspension you use. While, for example, a symmetrical load can possibly be lifted with a 1-strand suspension, a suspension with lifting chains of different lengths is usually necessary or at least recommended for an asymmetrical load.

 

6. Do you want to use an endless chain?

An endless chain can be used, for example, if the load does not have lifting points – in other words, if you have to create lifting points yourself. If you use an endless chain with choke hitch, the WLL of the suspension is reduced by 20 %; this has already been taken into account in the information on WLL in this catalogue. However, because of the greater effort involved, you should not use an endless chain if there are other slinging options. Attention: Do not use any lifting gear chains to wrap around loads!

7. What working environment will the suspension be used?

The type of working environment also has an influence over the right choice of suspension components. VIP-Components from RUD (grade 10) allow, for example, operating temperatures between –40 and 200 °C, for ICE-Products (grade 12) they are between –60 and 200 °C (in each case without WLL reduction). In harsh environments, ICE-Components are recommended because of the particularly wear-resistant material. At the same time, because of their lower weight compared to grade 8, ICE-Components offer clear advantages when the lightest possible handling is important.

Asymmetrical load Centre of gravity off-centre

MISTAKES AND PROHIBITIONS IN THE USE OF SUSPENSIONS.

  • Using chains without DGUV approval and tag.

  • Combining chains of varying nominal thickness/WLL.

  • Knotting chains to shorten them. Loading twisted chains.

  • Dragging chains over the ground.

  • Not protecting chains from loads with sharp edges.

  • Using lifting gear chains to wrap around loads

Page 16
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-16.jpg

SELECTION CRITERIA FOR SUSPENSION COMPONENTS: WHAT NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED?

A series of selection criteria also apply to individual suspension components. Our general recommendation: Always select a suspension according to how and where you want to use it. If you put together several suspensions according to this principle, you act economically and safely at the same time.

MASTER LINKS.

1. Size and design of the crane hook.

The sizes of the hooks and master link must correlate. Hooks are available in a range of different sizes. Pay attention to the required size of the master link, as it must be at least 20 % larger than the hook width. There are also hall or mobile crane hooks, single or double crane hooks and many others.

2. Weight of the load.

Select the WLL of the master link according to the weight of the load. This information can be found in the product tables in this catalogue.

 

3. Number of strands of the suspension.

The dimension of the master link must fit the required number of strands.

SHORTENING ELEMENTS.

1. Type of shortening.

For rough and fast shortening we recommend the RUD multi-shortening claw. It is captive, yet is integrated in the chains and can be moved. Another advantage: The WLL of the suspension is not reduced with the multi-shortening claw. An alternative is the chain-protecting shortening hook. Both RUD shortening claws and RUD shortening hooks comply with DIN 5692.

 

The RUD toggle clamp is ideal for precise and infinitely variable length compensation. It is the ideal solution if, for example, the load must be set down exactly horizontally to avoid damage.

2. Handling options.

Of course, the nominal thickness of the suspension must match the shortening element. But it is also important how easily accessible the suspension should be during adjustment. While the RUD shortening hook is firmly mounted in the lifting chain, the multi-shortening claw can be moved in the strand as mentioned above.

Page 17
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-17.jpg

END COMPONENTS.

1. Connection to the lifting means.

Make sure that the lifting chain and the end component of the suspension have the same grade. So do not mix ICE (grade 12) and VIP (grade 10) and certainly do not mix them with other makes. Exceptions: The RUD ICE-CURT-K, which is only available in ICE, can be combined with VIP-Components; however, the WLL of the overall suspension is derived from the grade of the other components. You can also use an H-piece and VIP-Shackles for both VIP- and ICE-Components.

 

2. Connection to the lifting point on the load.

The end component used must match the type and size of the lifting point. For example, safe lifting is only ensured if the eye of the lifting point lies in the bottom of the hooks, i.e. the hooks are not too large.

3. Type, size and weight of the load.

The WLL of the end component must fit the size and weight of the load. The type of load is also decisive. For example, use the RUD bale hooks for lifting stacked bale hooks.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO CONSIDER?

According to DIN EN 818, all components and lifting chains in a suspension must always have the same nominal thickness and the same grade (do not combine ICE and VIP). In addition, components from different manufacturers must not be combined for safety reasons, as the connection systems sometimes differ considerably.

 

Never apply a load to twisted lifting chains! When lifting, the chains can suddenly untwist and the load can drop down with a jerk. Damage to the chains (until they break) or to the load can be the result of that. Rotate the chains out before lifting (DGUV rule 100-500). Alternatively: Use a RUD swivel adapter from the very beginning.

 

Never knot chains to shorten them! Otherwise undefined forces and WLL act on individual chain links during lifting. This can lead to dangerous damage to the lifting chains.

 

If you deflect lifting chains of the suspension at sharp edges, make sure to protect the chain from dangerous damage with an edge protector. Important: The permissible WLL on the chains strand is reduced by 20 % without appropriate edge protection

USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT GRADES.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT GRADES, MINIMUM BREAKING STRENGTHS AND QUALITY STAMPS.

For lifting chains and other types of chain, the grade is of major importance. In addition to designations such as “G 10”, there is often talk of “quality class 10” or even “grade 100”. However, many people are not aware of the technology behind these designations. This will be explained here more specifically using the example of round steel chains with a diameter of 8 mm.

 

How are the round steel chains produced?

Round steel chains are bent from a wire section and welded in the middle. The welding bead is then deburred. After welding, the chains are hardened by heating to over 1,000 °C. This changes the structure of the material. This structure, which is responsible for better hardness and strength, should be maintained. To achieve this, the chains are quickly quenched to room temperature.

 

What is tempering?

The chains are now extremely hard. Depending on the application, it is then tempered again, i.e. heated to over 300 °C. This process is referred to as tempering. Although it reduces the strong hardness it increases the toughness in return and also improves many other properties of the ICE-Chains.

 

How do you recognise the grade?

In principle, however, you cannot see the grade of chains from the outside. For this reason, chains are already given a quality stamp during production, which clearly defines the grade. In the case of lifting chains, this can be the stamp “(H1) 8” for grade 8 or “(H1) 10” for grade 10. The H stands for “high-strength” and is awarded by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV). The number behind the H indicates the manufacturer of the chains. Because RUD was always the first to have chains tested by the DGUV, the 1 always stands for RUD.

 

For grade 12, the responsible German statutory accident insurance company has issued a completely new stamp “(D)” for certain reasons. This is why RUD was the first manufacturer of round steel chains to receive approval for grade 120 with the stamp (D1) 12 in 2007. These chains are called ICE-Chains at RUD

1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_

How do you determine the grade?

If these pre-calibrated chains are subjected to a tensile load (F), it may only break after reaching the so-called minimum breaking force value. In the case of grade 80, 8 mm chains, this can be the case at F = 80,000 N (80 KN ≈ 8,000 kp [kg]). To determine the grade, you need another value: The area of the chains (both wire diameters); this is also called the loaded cross-section.

For a diameter of 8 mm the smooth value A = 100 mm² results.

The steel strength is technically defined by the value ƠB (Sigma B). It states the force at which a material breaks at a cross-section of 1 mm2. This value is called minimum breaking force. It is calculated according to the formula

(Spec. minimum break force.)

 

Relating to the 8 mm chains, this means: ƠB = 80,000 N / 100 mm2 = 800 N/mm2

(Spec. minimum break force.)

 

800 N corresponds to about 80 kg – grade 8, often called grade 80. If this chain breaks at the same diameter and a force of 100,000 N = 10,000 kp (kg), then we speak of grade 10 or grade 100. These chains are called VIP-Chains at RUD. A grade 12 or grade 120 chain (for RUD this is the ICE-Chain) would therefore break at 120,000 N or 12,000 kp.

Moreover: Since the characteristics of hoist chains differ considerably from those of lifting chains, hoist chains are stamped with letters rather than numbers to indicate their grade. This should prevent dangerous mix-ups.

ICE- AND VIP-CHAINS:
TECHNOLOGIES WITH CRUCIAL ADVANTAGES.

WHAT ICE AND VIP STAND FOR:

RUD ICE- (grade 12) and VIP-Chains (grade 10) offer you noticeable advantages over grade 8 in all aspects. Their high WLL with comparatively low weight and thus better ergonomics, their high toughness, their durability as well as their increased breaking strength with unchanged elongation at break: All this makes them the economical choice for a wide range of lifting tasks.

HIGH VALUE FOR MONEY THANKS TO SPECIAL HARDENING.

Whether hot or cold: When the ICE- or VIP-Chains are used under rough conditions, the patented material and the special hardening provide clear advantages for the user. This is especially true when handling sectional steel, for example during port handling or during construction operations by choking. For example, damage to the chains due to edge deflections can be significantly reduced compared to chains with lower strength

VIP = Verwechslungsfrei in Pink (non-mix-up in pink

GRADE COMPARISON USING SINGLE-STRAND CHAIN AS AN EXAMPLE.

Page 21
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-21.jpg

HIGHER BREAKING STRENGTH – CONSTANT ELONGATION AT BREAK.

Despite the significantly higher breaking strength of 1,200 or 1,000 N/mm2 compared to grade 8 (800 N/mm2), the breaking elongation of the ICE- and VIP-Chains remains the same. It is ≧ 25 % in the natural black state, with pink powder coating ≧ 20 %. The fatigue strength reaches a value of at least 20,000 load cycles (tested at 50 % overload for ICE and VIP). *

 

* For continuous operation, e.g. in connection with hoists and cranes with high dynamic loads of more than 20,000 load cycles, the WLL must be specified according to EN 818-7 mechanism group 1 Bm (M3) nominal voltage 160 N/mm2, i. e. e. g. one chain nominal thickness greater

SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED TOUGHNESS.

In the notched bar impact test it can be determined whether a chain still has sufficient toughness under particularly unfavourable conditions. The result: Compared to chain grade 8 (40 J bei –20 °C), RUD ICE-Chain have 55 J at –60 °C and RUD VIP-Chain have 42 J at –40 °C. These higher values are particularly important for extreme loads.

UP TO 60 % HIGHER BREAK
FORCE / WLL THAN GRADE 8.

Longer service life thanks to special heat treatment and patented material.

  • Higher wear resistance.

  • Reduced sensitivity to the penetration of sharp edges.

  • 30 % higher surface hardness than grade 8, thus significantly longer service life

1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-22.jpg

GOOD IDEAS FOR YOUR
PLUS IN SAFETY.

Whether great heat or Arctic cold: RUD ICE- and VIP-Chains withstand the highest demands – and that with a comparatively low weight. But even the highest quality chain can reach its limits if it is exposed to unacceptably high temperatures over a long period of time. Thanks to a special coating, you are always on the safe side with ICE- and VIP-Chains.

ICE- AND VIP-CHAINS: SAFETY WITH HEAT INDICATOR.

The special ICE-Pink powder coating permanently signals the highest temperature in which the ICE-Chain has been used to date. In case of prohibited use above 300 °C, the ICE-Pink becomes brown-black. This means: Replace the ICE-Chain

The fluorescent pink powder coating of the VIP-Chain also changes its colour permanently at extreme operating temperatures – in this case at over 200 °C. If the chain is heated inadmissibly above 380 °C, the colour changes to deep black and no small bubbles are formed. The VIP-Chain must then be replaced.

Page 23
1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-23.jpg

NON-MIX-UP ASSEMBLY WITH THE RUD CLEVIS CONNECTION SYSTEM.

Whether ICE or VIP: The dimensional and colour matching of both systems ensures that the correct non-mix-up nominal chains thickness is assigned. An ICE-Connecting bolt (oval design) cannot therefore be combined with other RUD grades – or vice versa. With the VIP-System, only matching VIP-Chains of the correct thickness can be fitted, thanks to the clevis connections, which are non-mix-up. The clevis opening “X” prevents the connection of thicker VIP-Chains, the connecting bolt diameter “Dimension Y” prevents the connection of thinner VIP-Chain.

RELIABLY UNMISTAKABLE.

A suspension as a whole only offers maximum application safety if its components are combined in a suitable manner. For example, components of grade 10 (VIP) must not be connected with those of grade 12 (ICE) or with components of other manufacturers. In RUD ICE- and VIP-Components, several safety features ensure that only components of the same grade and WLL can be combined.

CLEAR EMBOSSING.

All ICE-Chain links and components have a distinct “ICE” embossing by which they can be clearly identified. The same applies to the unmistakable VIP-Embossing of the VIP-Chains and components. This prevents mix-ups with other grades.

THE RUD WELDED CONNECTORS.

The movable welded connectors of the ICE- and VIP-Master links ensure a non-mix-up connection with regard to chains diameter and number of strands. In addition, the master link has an identification tag with integrated patented chains gauge

THE RUD WELDED CONNECTORS.

VIP- / ICE-Components can be identified by their VIP- /  ICE-Pink powder coating, this prevents mix up.

Important note:

RUD ICE- and VIP-Chains (grades 12 and 10) may only be connected with RUD accessories. RUD accepts no liability for ICE- / VIP-Chains and components that are combined with products of other makes. Please pay attention to the operating manual or user info! Only use original RUD spare parts! The DGUV recommends: Chain suspension of grades 12 (ICE) and 10 (VIP) must not be used with chains and components from different manufacturers.

LIGHT AND STRONG: THE ICECONSTRUCTION KIT BY RUD.

HIGH VALUE FOR MONEY THANKS TO SPECIAL ICE-HARDENING.

RUD has always been ahead of its time when it comes to materials for lifting means. One example is the world-famous RUD ICE-Chain, which can replace a grade 8 chain of the next largest nominal thickness. Thanks to the extremely high strength of the patented material, the continuous nominal thickness increase has been achieved even with diameters of less than 16 mm. The decisive advantage: An ICE-Lifting mean or lashing chain is more than 30 percent lighter and the working ergonomics are noticeably improved.

THE ICE-CHAIN TECHNOLOGY FOR 30 % LESS OWN WEIGHT – YOUR ADVANTAGES:

  • Better handling through lightweight design: No impairment of health due to too heavy lifting.

 

  • Up to 60 % higher break force / WLL than grade 8.

 

  • Significantly improved toughness and impact energy values (55 J at –60 °C).

 

  • Higher wear resistance and longer life due to special heat treatment and 30 % higher surface hardness.

 

  • Optimum surface protection through special ICE-Pink powder coating.

 

  • Reduced sensitivity to the penetration of sharp edges.

 

  • Environmental protection: significantly less material and less energy consumption in production. Made for extreme temperatures.

Whether hot or cold: For tough use of the ICE-Chain, especially when handling sectional steel, such as in port handling or in construction operations with choke hitch, the patented material and the special RUD ICE-Hardening provide clear advantages for the user. This reduces damage to the chain caused by edge deflection compared to a chain with lower strength.

THE DECISIVE ICE-ADVANTAGES: ALWAYS A NOMINAL THICKNESS LOWER THAN GRADE 8

RUD LIFTING MEANS IN VIP-QUALITY.

Innovation and quality made by RUD: The highly dynamic chains and components of RUD product line VIP stand for up to 30 percent higher WLL than the highest grade 8 (grade 80) available until then. And with the same chains diameter. VIP-Chains from 18 mm are always one nominal thickness thinner – and therefore up to 50 percent lighter. The geometric structure and the tolerances of the VIP-Chains are adapted to those of the higher grade. The chain spectrum ranges from 4 to 28 mm and from 0.63 t (MINI single-strand) to 126 t (2 x MAXI double-strand).

RUD LIFTING MEANS IN GRADE 10 (VIP) – THE CONVINCING ADVANTAGES:

  • Up to 30 % higher WLL than grade 8 (grade 80) with the same chain diameter (Ø 16, 20, 22 and 28 mm in grade 10 (VIP) replace Ø 18, 22, 26 and 32 mm in grade 8).

 

  • Noticeable weight savings –better handling.

 

  • Dynamic strength considerably higher than standard values. Minimum number of load cycles: > 20,000, with an upper load of 1.5 times the VIP WLL.

 

  • High toughness due to specially tempered CrNiMo stainless steel.

 

  • Notch insensitivity and hydrogen embrittlement resistance like grade 8

More and more RUD VIP-Products have the important DNVGL approval. This makes them ideally suitable for use in the marine and offshore sector

  • Duplex surface protection: Pre-treatment plus pink powder coating (Super corrosion coating Corrud® DS on request).

 

  • Longer service life, because of special RUD heat treatment process less sensitive to abrasion and damage.

 

  • Production and lot numbers are stamped at regular intervals on the chain links stamped – for complete proof of the production and test data.

IMPORTANT NOTE.

VIP-Chains 8S or 10 may only be connected with RUD accessories. RUD accepts no liability for VIP-Chains and VIP-Components that are combined with products of other makes. Please pay attention to the operating manual or user info! Only use original RUD spare parts! The DGUV recommends: Chain suspensions of grade 10 must not be used with chains and components from different manufacturers.

DESIGN OF ICE-MASTER LINK IAK-2S FOR BALANCER SUSPENSION

1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-51.jpg

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING WHEN USING THE ICE-BALANCER SUSPENSION:

 

  • The load must be symmetrical.

  • The inclination angle β must not be greater than 45° (see diagrams 1 and 2).

 

  • The inclination of the balancer must not be greater than 10° (see diagrams 3, 4 and 5).

 

  • Detailed information on the ICE-Balancer can be found in the operating manual.

 

  • Higher WLL at β = 15° or β = 30° see operating manual.

With a 4-strand suspension, a maximum of only 3 strands can be assumed to be load-bearing.

In unfavourable cases only 2 strands are used.

 

Our TIP:

When using a 2 x 2-strand suspension in the configuration shown, an even load distribution to all 4 strands and a 33 % higher WLL than a standard 4-strand suspension.

Higher WLL at β = 15° or β = 30° see operating manual.

 

Attention: The 2-strand suspension with balancer may not be used by itself as a 2-strand suspension. Work equipment for lifting loads must prevent the unintentional dangerous movement of the load (compare BetrSichV, Annex 1 (3.2.3)).

 

Ask the manufacturer about asymmetric load cases.

We are pleased to advise you!

ICE-MINI CONSTRUCTION KIT

The MINI-Lifter, which was specially developed for this range, also offers special advantages for simple lifting or slinging tasks. Since the master link and shortening element are combined, the chain strand can be brought to the required length quickly and easily. And thanks to the low dead weight of the sling chain, even higher loads can in many cases be lifted with a slewing crane.

The ideal program for small loads.

COMPONENTS.

COMPONENTS – TECHNICAL DATA.

1-1 Lifting_Means_System_Main_catalogue_V1_en-61.jpg

WLL of up to 1,180 kilograms are fully sufficient for many lifting operations. The ICE-MINI construction kit is made for applications like these. The nominal thickness of only 4 millimetres makes the ICE-MINI chain extremely slim and light, which significantly improves ergonomics for the user. It is therefore an excellent solution for all lifting tasks that have to be carried out several times a day
