Germany's Oldendorff Carriers ordered Post-Panamax at Jiangsu Eastern Heavy Industry. The owner confirmed its order of a 97,000 deadweight eco Post-Panamax bulk carrier at Jiangsu Eastern Heavy...
A. Vacuum Clamp; B. Probe Clamp C. The Cure Probe.
B. The Probe Clamp. A semi-automatic equipment yielding high handling rates, designed to lift paper reels in pairs. The probe inserts into the centre holes of the reels and a crank adjusts to the reel diameter. When the reels arc landed, and the lifting wire slackened, the probes auto¬matically release (see diagram).
C. The Cure Probe. This equipment is independent of the diameter and height of the paper reel and can be operated by one man. The probe inserts into the centre hole of the reel and grips by expanded force. It has particular applica¬tion to single reels (see diagram).
D. Bale Clamp; E. MultiGrab; F. Wire Clamp.
D. The Bale Clamp. A fully automatic lifting implement designed to handle units of up to 8 x 8 strapped pulp bales. Basically designed for use with gantry cranes it can also be applied to luffing cranes. The head of the clamp picks up the steel tapes of the bales by magnetic means, to permit the insertion of grips which lock the tapes securely, and these are then tensioned by the widening action of the lifting head (see diagram).
E. The MultiGrab. A mechanical-hydraulic clamp device for the handling of steel tape or wire bound bales of pulp, in multiple units, primarily intended for use with luffing cranes. The grab is an automatic, self-locking tool, like a mechanical shears-type clamp, dependent only on the tension in the cargo runner. The clamping device acts on the uppermost hales in each eight-bale block (see diagram).
F. The Wire Clamp. A semi-automatic tool for handling unitized pulp hales without baskets. The tool has two locating tongues, one at each end, which pluck the steel tape or wire, and firmly secured so that it cannot slip off. The weight of the load acts on an expanded linkage so that the steel tape or wire is tensioned. When the load is landed springs cause retraction of the linkage so that the tongues release the tape or wire, allowing removal of the tool (see diagram).
G. Lumber Clamp (I) H. Lumber Clamp (2)
G. The Lumber Clamp (I). Designed to lift cargo units comprising timber packages of approximately one standard each, assembled by strapping with steel tape or wire, four packages to one lifting unit. The tool has two lifting heads, each equipped with two clamps. A tongue on each clamp slides on top of the package with light pressure and picks up the steel tape or wire. After gripping, the clamps auto¬matically widen towards the ends of the package, thus tensioning the tape or wire. When landing the load, the tongues are automatically released and the clamps return to a neutral position. The entire process is controlled from the crane cab. The lumber chimp is adaptable to both gantry and lulling cranes (see diagram).
H. The Lumber Clamp (2). This type of clamp activates in pairs, each pan lilting a unit of two packages. When the cargo is lifted the tool grips the securing tape or wire and lifts by means of the latter. It is a simple, straightforward system. When lifting commences the weight causes the carriages to be drawn apart, towards the sides of the package, tensioning the steel tape or wire. When the cargo is landed springs bring the moving carriages together again and the locking devices release the steel tape from the tool and it can then be lifted free from the cargo (see diagram).
I. The Log Grapple J. The Log Grab.
I. The Log Grapple. This is an electro-hydraulic grapple for handling logs in bundles. It grips only the uppermost logs in the bundle and is unaffected by submersion in water (see diagram).
J. The Log Grab. This is an electro-hydraulic toot with fully enclosed hydraulic equipment. Oval in shape, it is intended for the lifting of bundled logs from the water. A rectangular form operates with logs from trucks, wagons or piles. The grab arms are manipulated by hydraulic cylinders and can be arrested and restarted from any position. They are controlled by the crane driver from his cab panel. On luffing cranes a cable winder is required to carry the power and control cables (see diagram).
