ELME Spreader Model 857 INNOVATION is the New Generation intermodal top lift spreader for the handling of laden ISO containers and trailers weighing up to 45 tonnes. 857 INNOVATION is designed for use with reach stackers. The strong and basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. Beam sections are dimensioned to absorb not only the vertical, but also the very considerable horizontal forces. INNOVATIVE DESIGN INNOVATION’s new and improved design implies a New Generation 857 INNOVATION spreader with the unique combination of increased structural strength and reduced weight. The New Generation 857 INNOVATION Spreader is estimated to have an increased life expectancy of 30 % related to fatigue resistance and standard load case conditions. The reduced spreader weight enables improvements on the reach stacker design and makes it possible to increase the lifting capacity in second and third container row. The New Generation design also implies numerous improvements to promote easier service. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The previous generations well-proven Twistlock system, manufactured in a rugged design, carries all its benefits into the New Generation of spreaders. 857 INNOVATION has hardened ISO quick exchange pendular twistlocks that are hydraulically activated with mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. PIGGYBACK LEGS SYSTEM The leg arrangement is done according to the ELME design system which is a load clamping system that involves all four foldable piggyback legs in an automatic sequence. Thanks to this feature the spreader can be lowered between containers that are block stacked front to front and side to side. The feet are designed according to European standard and made of Strenx® 900E material (meets S 890 QL) to extend life time. Sensors (integrated in the feet) detect when the trailer is clamped and send signals to the indication system. To avoid unintentional unclamping, a signal is also sent as soon as the container/trailer is lifted off the ground. TELESCOPING, SIDESHIFT AND ROTATION SYSTEM Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder for each end beam and sideshift is executed by one hydraulic cylinder. Rotation is done by a slewing ring with double transmissions for turning and brakes for holding. 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, clamped or not clamped. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader such as twistlock activation, telescoping, piggyback legs and lift interrupt. Neuron uses J1939 protocol which provides fault code messaging to alert driver and maintenance personnel of possible component failures.
