We believe that it is worth commenting the project “Spreader beams for cranes” that we have delivered recently, and that it is a work of good management within the world of heavy loads and we can qualify as a success case for Ox Worldwide.

Spreader Beams for cranes – The project

We’re very proud of the engineering project developed  by Ox Worldwide for “Aguilar Cranes” concerning the manufacture and supply of Spreader Beams for cranes.

Last October 2019 we received an inquiry consisted of providing the engineering design and supply for the installation project of a bridge assembled by prefabricated sections on the M30 highway in Madrid. With a weight of up to 300 tons per section, the challenge was to manufacture and supply Modular Spreader Beams for cranes for lifting and all its accessories in just one month.

Modular Spreader Beams for cranes – Range of Product

It was decided to perform the Spreader Beams for cranes with a cascade formation (as the picture).The rigging plan was developed by an assembly with Modular Spreader Beam: on the top, one unit of 400 tons of capacity, model OX-SB-250/400 and on the bottom, two lower Spreader Beam of 170 tons of capacity each, model OX-SB-170.

The Spreader Beams for lifting are one of our best selling and valued products together with Lifting Beams range, which inquiry us worldwide and that they are also certified by DNV.

We currently have the models with the most total capacity and more length in the European Union! From 9 to 1350 tons of capacity. We are accredited by the DNV Certificate  and the FEM-AEM. We also have ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 3834-2. This is our commitment to the highest quality standards and safety, one of our core values.

Main Lifting accessories

Another key requirement was that the lower slings should be introduced in holes of 300 mm in diameter and be flexible and strong enough to embrace the bridge section by the base, without damage to themselves or to concrete, but these are materials of great tonnage not too common and all become the project more expensive.

The solution chosen was to use special Dyneema slings, an ultra-resistant and very light material, with an approximate weight of only 100 kg per sling and a diameter of 110 mm to lift each bridge section by means of two units in basket, in “U” shape (as the picture), with a resulting capacity of 200 tons per sling.

Other Lifting accessories

Additionally, it was complemented with all the remaining lifting accessories : Grommet wire rope (a versatile and economical solution for this range of capacities) and Wide Body Shackles to not damage the slings and therefore not decrease their capacity due to the capacity reduction factors that would apply in case of using conventional shackles.

The management to get all the accessories we also have to thank for the good work of the purchasing department, because not all suppliers are able to deliver this type of large tonnage accessories in such a short time.

The complete list of accessories includes:

2 x Grommet sling 6 m x 251 t WLL
2 x Wide body shackles x 300 t WLL
1 x Spreader beam OX-SB-250/400 x 5 m span
2 x Wide body shackles x 200 t WLL
4 x Grommet sling 4 m x 134 t WLL
4 x Wide body shackles x 125 t WLL
2 x Spreader beam OX-SB-170 x 4 m span
4 x Wide body shackles x 125 t WLL
2 x Dyneema slings x 12 m x 100 t WLL/each

Project delivered

In a project that demanded readiness, safety and efficiency we carry out all the lifting engineering, their accessories, the acceptance plans, the collection and reception of the materials as well as the manufacture of the Modular Spreader Beam and the delivery at the client’s home and most importantly, without neglecting the rest of the orders we had in manufacturing for some time.

“Our client has expressed his great satisfaction”

And of course, it was possible to assemble all the parts of the bridge, full fit the scheduled plan without any incidence, so we can only congratulate ourselves because the operation has been a resounding success, congratulate our entire team, as well as Luis Aguilar, manager of “Grúas Aguilar”, also thank him for the video he has sent us, which was recorded with drones in the middle of the M30 and in it you can see all the details of the project.

Thank you all.
