ELME Spreader Model 816TL is a twinlift telescopic top spreader for the handling of containers in twinlift mode. 816TL is designed for use with straddle carriers. The strong and basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. The beam sections are dimensioned to absorb not only the vertical, but also the very considerable horizontal forces. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The twistlock arrangement is manufactured in a very rugged design and is well-proven since many years. Spreader model 816TL is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. TELESCOPING SYSTEM Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder outside each beam. At each stop mode a mechanical stop activates, locking the position. TWINLIFT SYSTEM The system is of box type design and driven by hydraulic cylinders. CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM For safety and reliability, the control voltage on the spreader is always converted to 24V DC. Electrical systems monitor the state of the spreader at all times. Indicator lights advise the operator when the spreader is correctly seated, locked or unlocked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader, such as twistlock activation, telescoping, stop and lift interrupt.
