The visual contact with the stack, container corners and hooks has been optimized to allow rapid positioning of the lifting heads to the container. SLC40T is equipped with side shift, telescopic and mechanical pile slope functions that allows it to easily locate containers. It uses hooks and side clamps to secure the container. The hooks engage the top of the bottom container, and the side clamps lock into the corner castings of both containers.
All spreader movements are controlled with 24V proportional valves, providing precise and smooth operation. The spreader is operated from the driver’s cab over serial communication (CANopen) or parallel wiring. Commands are processed by an electronic control unit on the spreader with built in safety logics for container handling.
The spreader is designed in accordance with EN13001. As all Bromma spreaders it is made from European high quality steel, which ensures a light and robust design. The spreader has a user friendly design and all components are easily accessible for inspection and maintenance.
