Spreader Model 8215E is an all-electric telescopic top spreader for handling of laden 20-45ft ISO containers up to 40 tonnes. 8215E is designed for mounting on Automatic Rail Mounted (ARMG), Rail Mounted (RMG) or Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes. The strong and basic concept with a mechanical base design proven for >30 years gives very high reliability regard to fatigue, in-directly the spreader lifetime as well as spreader functionality. The mainframe with two parallel telescopic beams, assures both maximum overlap and enhanced visibility for the crane driver. Thanks to the extension beam box design not only vertical but also the very considerable horizontal forces are well absorbed. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The basics for the twistlock system are the same as for the ELME hydraulic top lift spreaders with a “one of a kind” proven design and well established system thanks to thousands of ELME hydraulic toplift spreaders supplied to the market. The spreader is equipped with the same twistlock components as in all ELME top lift spreaders, implying not only a well-known system but also an advantage in terms of accessibility of spare parts for the end user and service provider. DRIVE SYSTEM The spreader drive system originates from a proven design based on extensive spreader field tests with numerous hours of operation. This has developed in a silent and well proven spreader drive system. Thanks to the position on top of the spreader the drive system is easily accessible during maintenance but also well-protected with the ELME protection-hoods. FLIPPER SYSTEM The new developed ELME electrical flipper system is designed as one unit with very compact design. The system offers beneficial torque and clamp force characteristics.
