The new CMOD Corner Unit has been created using the sopshisticated engineering software package Ansys, with Modulift’s in-house engineers conducting a non-linear contact stress analysis on the corner unit bow, simulating a full design load applied through the shackle.

As a result, the new units, which are up to 40% lighter while also being stronger and 50% less expensive than the original version, minimise contact stresses between the top shackle bow and corner unit centre plate, “providing optimal performance and durability”. Modulift adds that finite element analysis (FEA) test tesults show that the high contact stresses are “extremely localised and do not cause any overstress or deformation on the CMOD Corner Unit plate”.

New CMOD Corner Units can be combined with existing Modulift Struts and T-Pieces to create a four-, six- or eight-point lifting frame.

Modulift’s CMOD Modular Spreader Frame range features eight different sizes to suit individual lifting needs, starting with the CMOD 6, capable of a maximum working load limit (WLL) of 8t and an assembled span range between 0.5m and 2.5m, all the way up to the CMOD 250, boasting a max WLL of 300t and a span range between 2m and 20m.

Modulift is a UK-based company that produces a comprehensive range of lity lifting and spreader beams, spreader frames and other custom ‘below-the-hook’ lifting equipment, that is used across the global lifting industry.
