Lesson 1.1: what is an adjustable lifting beam

(if you are an expert in handling and lifting equipment, please skip this part)

A beam is a structural element that primarily resists loads applied laterally to the beam’s axis.

An adjustable lifting beam is a type of lifting device used in various industrial and construction settings to lift and move heavy loads.

It plays a crucial role in industrial and construction settings, primarily through its ability to evenly distribute the weight of heavy loads across multiple points, ensuring balance and stability. It adapts to various load sizes and shapes, enhancing its versatility for different lifting tasks. The beam reduces the risk of accidents and damage during the lifting process.

It’s especially useful for lifting diverse heavy loads, including a wide range of awkwardly shaped or unevenly balanced items, making it a go-to tool in a wide array of industrial applications. Its design enables easy connection to lifting machinery like cranes and hoists, streamlining the lifting process. Moreover, the beam’s capability to safely lift large or irregular items improves efficiency in both construction and industrial environments.

One of the most common types of beams is the adjustable spreader beam, as they can be used in a large number of situations. The effectiveness of a spreader beam is directly tied to the overhead space, as sufficient clearance is necessary for optimal performance and safety during lifting operations.

But there are more types of beams: CLS, AML, H-Beam…
