Ship to Shore Container Spreaders
Due to close cooperation with crane manufacturers, terminal operators, and the continuous urge to excel our customers’ expectations, we have developed a modular container spreader design that can easily be adapted to our customer’s specific needs. We offer the complete range from single-lift to twin-lift and Long-Twin® Container Spreaders for Ship to Shore Cranes, for containers ranging from 20ft to 45ft. The design is known for its high-productivity, its low maintenance costs and long life-time.
In 1996, we launched the Long-Twin® into the market. These ship to shore spreaders have a design that has drastically changed the logistics of terminal operations and has become the industry standard. This innovative and patented design does increase gantry crane productivity tremendously. Stinis Long-Twin® spreaders separate two 20ft fully loaded containers up to a distance of 1.60m, which is very advantageous for handling operations. At this moment, hundreds of Stinis Long-Twin® spreaders are in operation worldwide under the most extreme conditions, to the full satisfaction of our customers.
Our spreaders have very short telescoping times viz. only 15 seconds from 20 ft to 40 ft and only 5 – 6 seconds from 40 ft to 45 ft. The unique design of a dual steel belt covered with industrial rubber (including a slow start / stop system) ensures simultaneous telescoping and has proven its reliability in more than 2000 spreaders that are in operation worldwide.
Hydraulic beam locking device
The design of the hydraulic telescoping beam locking device, that guarantees telescoping to the exact positions, has successfully been incorporated in more than 2.000 spreaders that are in operation under a broad variety of conditions worldwide.
Flippers and Actuators
Our very powerful, over-dimensioned flippers and actuators were introduced in 1979. The feedback from the terminals is that they are robust, reliable and that they have improved the productivity of their operations by 5 to 15 %. At the same time the downtime and repair / maintenance costs have been reduced.
