Automatic load positioner for rope sling.

Tractel TOPAL TC Rope Positioners

Slide the beam slantwise in the cone-shaped manhole, then fix horizontally. As the lift is applied, the polyurethane coated pads will engage and grip the inner wall diameter reduction, holding at about 700 mm. So as to free the beam, release the tension on the sling and take the beam out of the manhole, gripping it by its ends.

When lifting, the rope sling locks itself around the ring thanks to a round turn. Should the load be unbalanced too much (more than 70 % effort on 1 leg and less than 30 % on the other), put down the load again and slacken the sling so as to free the tension around the ring. Resume the operation until the desired position be obtained. Then the handling of the load can be performed.

Instructions For Use

  1. Thread the rope into the load positioner.
  2. In the free position, with the sling slackened: the rope turns around the ring (4) of the load positioner enabling the positioner to be moved in order to be placed in position above the presumed centre of gravity of the part to be lifted.
  3. Hang the load positioner + sling to the lifting appliance.
  4. Fasten the legs of the sling to the part to be lifted.
  5. Look for the centre of gravity: move the load positioner to set it in the position above the presumed centre of gravity above the part to be lifted.
  6. Perform the lifting operation whereby the rope sling locks around the ring of the load positioner by means of a full turn of the sling.
  7. If there is too much unbalance, put the part back down and slacken the sling to free the tension around the ring of the load positioner.
  8. Resume from operation n° 5 until the position above the centre of gravity of the part is determined.
  9. Once this position has been found, the part can be moved.
