The ELME Spreader Model 588TB INNOVATION is the New Generation telescopic side lift spreader with vertical twistlocks for the handling of single empty ISO and Binnencontainers. 588TB INNOVATION is designed to be integrated in the mast of a forklift truck. The spreader can handle 20 and 40ft ISO and Binnencontainers and also one 45ft container in the 40ft’s position. INNOVATIVE DESIGN INNOVATION’s heavy duty single handling spreaders originates from the double handling design concept. The new and improved design implies a reinforced spreader with an increased structural strength, enhanced durability, optimized hydraulic system, increased visibility for the driver and numerous other improvements for an outstanding functionality. Mechanical pile slope (MPS) in 588TB INNOVATION are vertical floating end-posts, including the bottom support. Floating end-posts simplifies picking up containers in a slanted angle. SIDESHIFT A generous sideshift movement of ±600 mm (1200 mm in total) provides operational flexibility. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well-proven since many years. 588TB INNOVATION has hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. The vertical twistlock principle offers the following features: • Two twistlocks enter the top corner castings and lock the spreader onto the container. • 588TB INNOVATION’s width is adapted to the dimensions of the container, which means that all containers can be fully blockstacked and still remain accessible. • ISO containers and Binnencontainers can be picked up without any modifications to the spreader. CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM The ELME Neuron CAN bus system, designed for maximum robustness, monitors the state of the spreader at all times. Indicator lights advise the operator when the spreader is correctly seated, locked or not locked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt. Neuron uses J1939 protocol which provides fault code messaging to alert driver and maintenance personnel of possible component failures.
