A 1250 Tons SWL Power Sling shackle
16 Oct. 2017
The new product by Green Pin® addresses both challenges.
A group of 50 specialists in the Rigging & Lifting business attended the presentation at the Van Beest's Factory in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands on Thursday the 12th of Oct. 2017
Green Pin® recently introduced the Green Pin Power Sling® Shackle. Green Pin® claims the new shackle lets companies save up to 20% on synthetic- and wire rope costs thanks to its design (for which a patent is pending). The Power Sling® thus addresses the need for more cost-effective solutions in transport, installation and decommissioning.
Due to the increased D/d ratio of the shackle bow, the wire ropes can be used more efficiently and therefore using a smaller wire rope diameter, saving handling and investment costs.
Van Beest GREENPIN was present on the OEEC 2017 in Amsterdam as well
Van Beest, with its newly aquired bussiness in Spain, the forging company Irizar, will also focus now on the larger capacity shackles up to 5000 ton SWL
Of course, cost reductions are an important industry goal but only so long as they do not negatively impact safety. The new product manages to achieve significant cost-savings while actually increasing the safety and ease of handling for riggers at the same time. It does this thanks to the lower body weight, multiple handling points and RFID-chips in both shackle body and pin. Check out my eralier post HERE
A very high quality product is produced due to the extremely high automatic fabrication process, which leaves very little room for error.
Van Beest claims it has more then 90% of all products listed in their catalogue on stock, hereby garanteeing quick delivery times. A large worldwide network is daily supplied with products to keep also their dealers with most asked product on stock.
