Specialised Lifting Equipment Design and Certification

Coil lifter Design completed by Dynamic Engineering Consultants Pty Ltd, Perth, Western Australia

Dynamic Engineering’s capabilities include specialised lifting equipment design and certification to suit our client’s requirements. These specialised lifting equipment is designed based on Australian Standards AS1418 and AS4991. Following are some examples of previously completed projects:

An example of a 5T capacity coil lifter is given below. This design enables the lifter to “fold inwards” when the coil is engaged, and then by lifting on the outside “ears” the lifter kicks out to enable the lifter to lift the coil vertically. The design was built and tested and is currently in daily use.

Another example of specialised lifting equipment design is a 12T magnet spreader beam that was recently designed. This spreader beam has the capability of lifting 12T via 4 magnets. 4 Lifting points were used to improve stability.
