Spreaders for empty container handling.

Telescoping top lifting spreaders.

Based on a modular design this spreader concept is available for the entire range of handling equipment required in container terminals.

LONG-TWIN spreaders.

This recent innovative (and patented) design increases gantry crane productivity by 20-25%. These LONGTWIN Spreaders expand the 20ft containers separately up to a distance of 1.6 meters from each other. This is advantageous for handling operations (positioning on hatches, seal checking on the dock, easy positioning for yard handling equipment).

Accessory equipment for container handling.

A variety of accessory equipment required by terminal operators in their day-to-day operations. Telescoping over height / over wide adapter frames for gantry cranes and yard handling equipment, safety cages for lashing activities (fi xed or telescoping), safety cages and heavy lift frames.

Incosa offers a full range of CE approved load cells for hoisting and winching equipment. All types are available with standard mV output, amplifi ed 4-20 mA output or CAN-open connection.

The load cells on cable are very easy to install near the fi xed point of the hoist with no extra mechanical modifi cations. These load cells can be used for capacities from 500kg to 20,000kg with clamps available for a large range of cable diameters. Capacity per fall and the cable diameter are required parameters. Traction load cells can also be mounted with shackles at the fixed point of the hoist. The signal is independent of the cable so cable changes have no influence on the signal. The capacities are between 500kg to 15000 kg.

High precision load pins for load limiting and load indication on hoisting equipment. These high precision load pins can be mounted at the fixed point or the return pulley without any loss of height. Capacity, diameter, and length are necessary parameters to quote the load pins.
