KAUP Container Spreaders

KAUP Container Spreaders are variably usable and have proven to be successful in worldwide use since more than 30 years - on ships, port terminals or transhipment stations. Due to the consequently applied modular principle of KAUP they have a very favourable ratio between empty weight and payload and can be adapted without any problems to individual requests concerning load capacity, stroke speed and increasing container sizes.

KAUP provides a wide range of Container Spreaders

For centering the view-optimized designed spreader during positioning on a free-standing container the KAUP Container Spreaders are equipped with folding flippers. Depending to the specific need the crane operator can fold them upwards or downwards.

The range of Container Spreaders from KAUP is extremely diverse. But the individual data concerning type, mounting, details of load calculation, data about the transported containers and other technical specifications render Container Spreaders very complex.
