Electric telescopic container spreader is the most commonly used type for container-dedicated cranes. It automatically adjusts its length to handle lifting operations for containers of different sizes. The telescopic and lock/unlock actions of the electric single-container telescopic spreader are motor-driven, suitable for 20ft, 40ft, and 45ft containers. Telescopic container spreader is used for handling ISO containers up to 41 tons deadweight.

  1. Motorized Operations:
    • All operations of the container lifting spreader are driven by electric motors.
    • The electric motor is selectively powered only during necessary actions, ensuring minimal power consumption during idle periods.
  2. Advantages over Hydraulic Spreader for container lifting:
    • Compact structure and lightweight design.
    • Environmentally friendly with lower energy consumption (around 10% of hydraulic spreader).
    • Reduced running costs, fewer faults, and easy maintenance.
    • Low noise and no oil leakage, contributing to a green and clean working environment.
  3. Fixed Guide Plate Design:
    • Utilizes a fixed guide plate to assist drivers in precise container handling.
    • Enhanced structural strength compared to movable guide plate devices.
    • Significant cost reduction in comparison.
  4. Electrical System:
    • Installation of an advanced electrical system on the spreader.
    • Components include an electrical control box, limit switches, junction box, modules, indicators, plugs, various sensors, and signal transmitters.
    • Controls and provides feedback for all container lifting spreader actions.
  5. Optional Accessories for Maintenance and Safety:
    • Customizable with optional accessories based on maintenance, safety, and protection requirements.
    • Available accessories include ladders, guardrails, anti-fall lugs, anti-drop chains, and self-closing doors.
    • Provides flexibility to meet specific operational and safety needs.
