EPAL, CP or other pallets > pallet lifter BEAMER

Imagine lifting pallets to a higher level with a crane pallet fork. So far no Problem. But now it is added that the pallet is very highly loaded. This is where it gets interesting. You can’t get any further with a crane fork because of the height. Alternatively, a very long sling could be inserted under the pallet and hooked into the load hook of the crane.  This works, but brings with it characteristics that are not advantageous. The belt may slip under the pallet so that it hangs at an angle. Possibly the outer boards of the Euro pallet or EPAL pallet will even pull up and make the pallet unusable. As an alternative to the described methods, there is the pallet lifter “BEAMER” from Eloorac. By using the Beamer it is guaranteed that pallets always hang balanced on the crane, no matter how they are packed. This is made possible by the use of 4 lifting belts of the same length, which are used for the Beamer pallet lifting iron. In addition, when the goods are lifted, all the boards on the pallet are equally loaded. As everyone can imagine, the Beamer lifting beams are also much easier to transport and above all to stow away compared to a crane fork, for example. In the following we will try to clarify the characteristics and application possibilities of our pallet lifter.

Safe craneing of windows on a large construction site

The illustration shows work on a large construction site in Switzerland. Large windows standing on Euro pallets or EPAL pallets are lifted by a crane. The pallet is lifted with the Beamer pallet lifter from Eloorac. The spreader traverse Spreader, also from Eloorac, prevents the lifting straps from pressing against the windows. This prevents damage to the windows.
The combination of the pallet lifter “Beamer” and the “Spreader” spreader traverse guarantees that windows that are lifted here to the seventh floor are not damaged by the sling. The choice of pallets is particularly clever. Only 2 Euro pallets were used to which a front wall was screwed to protect the windows. There is no more effective way to transport windows. Compliments to Switzerland  ;-).

Protect furniture with spreader traverses

The picture shows 2 floating Euro pallets or EPAL pallets loaded with furniture parts. Both pallets are lifted to higher levels by a crane. For lifting the pallets, the pallet lifter Beamer and the spreader beam Spreader from Eloorac are used.
High above Heidelberg, furniture was assembled and dismantled into an apartment on the 3rd Floor. The finished box furniture only stands on a Euro pallet (left).  Eloorac’s spreader travese ensures that the sensitive furniture is not damaged by the belts. On the right, panel elements standing on an Eloorac transport frame are lifted by crane.

Metal processor and the Beamer

Figure with 2 examples from the metal industry. On the left, a Euro pallet loaded with steel parts is lifted with Beamer pallet lifters. On the right, Eloorac Transport racks are suspended from the crane. The racks are loaded with metal sheets and can be moved with a truck crane with the help of the Beamer pallet lifters.
Very high loads are often lifted in steel, tool and metal construction. The Beamer pallet lifter set lifts 2,000 kg. Many things can be covered with it in daily use. Sheets standing on Eloorac transport racks like here are lifted with the Beamer without any problems. These high elements cannot be lifted with a crane fork because they are not high enough. Unfortunately, the pallet forks are also heavy and cumbersome to handle.

Spreading traverses detail

Illustration of 2 Euro pallets loaded with furniture. On the left you can see in detail the spreader beam Spreader from Eloorac. Under the pallet are the Beamer pallet lifter. On the right you can see the floating EPAL pallet. This pallet hangs with slings on a mobile crane and is lifted to higher levels. This work could not be done with a crane fork.
On the left the representation of the crane traverse “SPREADER”. Since shackles are used here as load handling attachments, belt straps or load rings can be securely attached. Each beam traverse set has a load capacity of 2,000 kg. In this case, the “Spreader 83” was used in combination with the “Beamer 83”. The use of these models makes the most sense due to the pallet (here standard Euro pallet or EPAL pallet).

 

Lift glass transport racks in a balanced manner

Glass transport frame consisting of Euro pallets and the Eloorac A-frame or glass stillage. This is loaded with approx. 700 kg of glass and is lifted by a crane with the help of the Eloorac Beamer pallet lifter.
On this 2.4 metre long pallet, which consists of 2 longitudinally connected Euro pallets, there is approx. 700 kg of glass. The glass panes stand on an Eloorac transport rack. The 4 lifting straps of the same length, which are attached to the supporting Beamer pallet lifter, always allow the pallets to hang straight and balanced as long as the glass is halfway evenly distributed on both sides.

Lifting transport racks with furniture boards

Illustration of floating transport racks from Eloorac on Euro pallet. The used A-frames which are normally used as glass transport frames were loaded with furniture parts. The lifting of the frames on EPAL pallets is carried out with the "Beamer" pallet lifting iron and the spreader traverse "Spreader" from Eloorac.
In general, not only glass is transported on Eloorac glass racks. Meanwhile our returnable systems are used in many industries as transport or storage racks. However, the Eloorac transport frame has a small disadvantage. It does not have a crane bracket on the upper cross beam. Metal frames for glass have an advantage here. This is why the “BEAMER” pallet lifter was developed.

The Beamer pallet lifter principle

Eloorac’s pallet lifting irons are an alternative solution that makes it possible to crane pallets safely. If the goods on a pallet are too high, it is often not possible to work with crane forks. These are sometimes too low. With the Beamer from Eloorac, every pallet can be craned. Our pallet lifters are easy to store and a standard tool on any construction site. Gone are the days when belts had to be pulled under pallets because there was no crane fork.

Illustration of the procedure how the Eloorac pallet lifter Beamer is inserted into a Euro or EPAL pallet.
The pallet lifter is simply guided into the pallet (here Euro pallet). The laterally protruding “swords” wrap around the pallet blocks and thus prevent the carrying iron from slipping.
Illustration of the procedure for hooking lifting straps into the pallet lifting iron Beamer. The pallet lifters are placed in a Euro or EPAL pallet.
Insert the lifting strap into the welded load hook of the pallet lifter. Although the hook is open, its type of opening prevents the load belt from slipping out unintentionally.
Detailed picture of the pallet lifter "BEAMER" and the spreader traverse "SPREADER" from Eloorac. You can see the 2 different sizes in which the crane lifting tools from Eloorac are available for Euro pallets, EPAL pallets or many other pallet shapes. On the right you can see an example of the pallet lifter and the spreader beams with lifting belts when lifting a pallet loaded with furniture by a truck crane.
Pallet lifters and spreaders are available in 2 different sizes from Eloorac. Surely the sizes can also be combined if situations allow.
Illustration of the spreader bar "SPREADER" from Eloorac and the pallet handler "BEAMER". The left side of the picture shows the lifting of an Eloorac transport frame with the Beamer pallet lifters. On the right you can see the spreader beams. These are used when the lifting belt must not touch the goods.
The spreading traverse “SPREADER” prevents the pressure being exerted on the goods. In the shackles used, small load hooks, load rings or straps of lifting belts can be fastened.

Examples of the use of the “BEAMER” pallet lifter

The following graphics show the application possibilities of the “Beamer” pallet lifter. The Beamer pallet irons not only lift individual pallets such as Euro pallets, EPAL pallets or industrial pallets. Combinations of e.g. 2 pallets connected to each other or next to each other can also be lifted or craned.
The pallet lifter from Eloorac in 2 different lengths for Euro pallets, EPAL pallets and many other pallet formats.
The Beamer pallet lifter is available in 2 different lengths. The short “Beamer 83” and the longer “Beamer 123”. Both can be used for a standard Euro pallet, for example.
The Eloorac pallet lifter "Beamer" for lifting Euro pallets or EPAL pallets and other pallets by crane.
If you stick to the example of the Euro pallets, the “Beamer 123” can be used on a standard Euro pallet, on 2 Euro pallets that are crosswise connected to each other and on the “Euro pallet 3“.
Eloorac's pallet lifter Beamer for lifting pallets by crane using a double Euro pallet in longitudinal direction.
Here you can see 2 Euro pallets or EPAL pallets which are longitudinally connected to each other. The pallet lifter “Beamer 83” can carry this pallet combination in different ways.
The Beamer pallet lifter from Eloorac in use with a plasterboard pallet from Knauf or Rigips. The pallet lifter is designed so that it can also be inserted into the very low plaster pallet.
Special pallets such as the plaster pallets from Knauf or Rigips can also be lifted using the “Beamer 123” pallet lifter and a crane. Plaster pallets are very low. The pallet lifting irons from Eloorac nevertheless fit under the pallets.

Videos about the pallet lifter and the spreader traverse

The video “BEAMER” shows the simple assembly of the pallet lifter Beamer as well as the use of the lifting irons on a 2.4 meter long pallet which is loaded with glass doors. It is easy to see that the pallet is well balanced due to the 4 belts of equal length.
The video “Spreader” is about the spreader traverse by Eloorac. This is used when pallets with fragile goods have to be lifted by crane.

Pallet lifter “Beamer” on different pallets

Now it is a fact that there is a huge number of pallet types. The question arises as to which pallet can be used or lifted with the “Beamer” pallet lifter. The following is a row of some pallets, which you get every day or here and there in front of your feet. These include the EPAL pallets or Euro pallets, the CP pallets, plaster pallets from Knauf or Rigips and some pallet types that are primarily available outside Europe. These include the CHEP pallet which is very similar to the standard Euro pallet, the Stringer Pool pallet, the Block Pool pallet and the normal Block pallet. For each pallet there is an illustration with dimensions. It is also shown if and how the Beamer pallet lifters and Eloorac transport racks work with the respective pallet.
