Long lifetime for Timars spreaders

Timars offers service, repair and maintenance on all our container spreaders and overheight frames. This can be performed on operators site or, as in this case, in Timars workshop in Falkenberg, Sweden. Recently we received two old C-lift spreaders from Hallands Hamnar in Varberg for refurbishment. The 40ft C-lift turned 30 years old this year and it was time to do a "make over". All parts where checked and in some cases replaced (with Timars original parts of course) and repaired and the spreader got a nice facelift with new painting. The spreader also went through our quality program and was test loaded in our special test frame under surveillance of Inspecta.

The 20ft C-lift spreader next to it was "only" 17 years old, but took the oppurtunity to follow the older one to our workshop.

Please dont hesitate to contact Timars for a quotation on service, repair or refurbishment on your own Timars products.


Timars delivers new type of Overheight Frame to Port of Felixstowe

Swedish spreader manufacturer Timars has delivered three new types of Overheight frames to Port of Felixstowe in UK. The Overheight frames are a new type of electromechanical Overheight frame which is a result of Timars long experience in manufacturing efficient and safe frames and new technology possibilities. Port of Felixstowe has also been an important part of the development which includes a new safety system with Hoist Interlock. The Overheight frame communicates wireless to the crane and spreader and the safety system prevents hoisting if the Overheight frame can’t assure a secure lift. The Overheight frame is also equipped with LED-lights for twistlock indication and confirmed landing.

The electric system is built with high quality parts including linear actuators in alloy steel and controller and color display from IFM. The Overheight frames can also be equipped with the new control system for service where the overheight frame sends information to engineering (or other interests in the port). Engineering can get information on the computer or smartphone about battery status, accumulative time in operation, number of TEU operated, current position and potential error messages.

The electrical system is a smart solution where the frame goes into sleep mode with extremely low power consumption and thereby will save battery. The solar panels on top of the frame is enough to keep the battery capacity during normal use.

Lifting capacity is SWL50T and the frame can be used with any kind of spreader and spreader brand. It is also telescopic from 20-45ft and the frames delivered to Port of Felixstowe had 2,6m free height.

Timars has before also developed and delivered unique Offset Frames for picking 20ft containers close to the bridge of the vessel, 1,5m offset from the normal crane spreader. These Offset frames has also the latest safety system including the Hoist Interlock system and has been proven a success in the port. The Offset frames are fully automatic and has given Port of Felixstowe increased efficiency and safer handling on containers close to the bridge on the vessels. Lifting capacity up to SWL40T.
