Given the wide variety of options and requirements when handling heavy loads across the rail sector, at Kimua, we design and manufacture modern loading equipment and lifting spreaders, all specially adapted to the needs of the modern business. Here, we’ll show you just some of the advantages that custom designed lifting tools can offer, as well as the various tools and options available for moving heavy loads, such as train carriages.
Spreader bars commonly have two anchor points through which they distribute the weight of a load. They’re usually telescopic length ways in order to adapt to the dimensions of a given load.
Our engineers have designed lifting spreaders so that they not only support the tons involved in moving railway carriages, but also so that the anchor points are oriented in such a way as to concentrate most of the weight along the bar, making the set behave like a large column.
At the same time, the beam spreaders differ slightly from the bars, since they now have an anchor point at the top and multiple points at the bottom. This design has plenty of advantages – firstly, distributing the load across a greater number of anchor points and, secondly, introducing a single upper hook, meaning cranes don’t need too much space for rigging, ideal when operating in tight spaces with limited head room.
Our continuous development in tooling design means we can produce reliable solutions at effective costs for all scenarios, whether simple lifts or complex shifting of rail loads.
At Kimua, we specialise in adapting to the needs of every one of our customers – and we have since the very beginning – both in terms of capacity, accessories, load lifting and tooling design, as well as safety and quality standards. This all translates into fantastic results when handling railway loads.
One of the challenges we’ve faced at Kimua has been designing, manufacturing and testing spreaders that could be used on high-speed train production lines. Our tools need to lift and move train carriages between several lines, all having been redesigned or modified to meet the specific needs of every client.
The results offer guaranteed excellent performance of load lifting equipment with an extended service life and low maintenance requirements, all capable of satisfying every need for lifting heavy loads in the rail sector.
At KIMUA, we are fully committed to quality and meeting our clients’ requirements. To achieve this objective, we are constantly optimising our resources, procedures and methodologies to ensure compliance with the specifications of each project, international standards and maximum quality in each of the design and manufacturing stages. In this sense, one of the latest […]
