Move & Lift

If only Archimedes had known...

To move the Earth, Archimedes claimed all he needed was a place to stand and a long enough lever. He would certainly have been excited to see the revolutionary lifting technology on display at CeMAT 2016 – all thanks to the most powerful swivel shackles in history.

Over 25 years ago, CODIPRO - part of the ALIPA Group – filed the first patent for a swivel shackle designed to act as a single connection point for lifting and turning loads. Since then, the Luxembourg-based company has grown from strength to strength and now produces some 100,000 of these practical swivel shackles per year, exporting them to more than 60 different countries. At CeMAT 2016, CODIPRO is showcasing the Giga DSS - the strongest swivel shackle the world has ever seen.

With a safety factor of 5, the new Giga DSS can safely support loads of up to 125 metric tons - the equivalent of a CASTOR container. It can be used directly with the hook of the traveling crane and is available as a standard model or a high-speed version with a tensioning system. The high-strength swivel shackle is delivered with robust, practical packaging to simplify installation, while the double articulation ensures that it can be lined up perfectly with the sling. What’s more, CODIPRO can also meet requests for modified axle lengths and special threads such as the UNC or UNF standards.
