Say Goodbye to Shackles with Modulift’s Innovative Trunnion Spreader Beam

Poole, Dorset >> The Modulift range of Trunnion Spreader Beams has taken the lifting industry by storm since its launch in 2015. As well as the expected industries focused on the health and safety aspects of such a configuration including Offshore, Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy, the Trunnion has been embraced by the Logistics, Construction and Nuclear sectors. All keen to benefit from the reduced weight and rigging advantages this solution has to offer.

Entering its 9th year, Modulift is not resting on the laurels of its initial design. The latest iteration demonstrates Modulift's commitment to engineering excellence, offering a lighter design with cost savings to match. The company's team of technical engineers remains committed to constant innovation and improvement.

“The new design is the result of meticulous Advanced Finite Element Analysis. The geometrically non-linear trunnions undergo validation through leading technical engineering software, ensuring a robust and effective design” said Harshal Kulkarni, Engineering Manager at Modulift. 

Kulkarni continues “The Trunnion demonstrates Modulift's commitment to innovative design engineering. DNV has approved the design methodology, adhering to industry standards Eurocode 3, DNV-CG-0127, DNV-RU-SHIP Pt.3 Ch.7, and DNV-RP-C208.”
