Traverses: types and purposes

Traverses: types and purposes

Traverses are designed to lift the load, theyare characterized by a convenient fastening, protecting the load from compression or deformation. A huge variety of traverse allows you to choose a device for carrying any cargo - from massive reinforced concrete structures to heavy casting buckets or fragile equipment.


Traverse construction

The classical version of the crosshead is a metal beam with a hook in the center for fastening on the crane or telpher. In the center and sides are hooks for fixing the load.

The crosshead design can be different. For lifting gipsoslakoblocchnyh panels using beam devices with fixed moving blocks for fixing. Large and heavy loads carry either a tubular or a lattice traverse. At the same time, hooks or carbines at the ends of the slings, anchor or support grips are used for gripping.

The gripper devices of the traverse can differby the form and principle of action. Most often used hooks or carbines, support hooks, with which the load clings to the protruding parts. The most reliable are the pin locks to open it, it is necessary to pull the pin out of the rope, the mounting rail is equipped with a remote detachment. On average, 1 bolt lock is used for every 5 tons of cargo.

Kinds traverse

  • Spatial, with one, two or more lateral beams
  • Traverses with a retractable rod - differ low weight at heavy carrying capacity.
  • Rotating, allow you to change the position of the cargo in space, rotate around its axis.
  • Telescopic with extendable "shoulders" - especially convenient in small rooms.
  • Rigid devices with multiple hooks.
  • Traverses for lifting and transferring containers with liquids with lamellar hooks
  • Equalizing, with a displaced center of gravity, for the transport of asymmetrical loads.
