Lifting devices is a general term for any equipment that can be used to lift and lower loads. Types of lifting equipment includes heavy machinery such as the patient lift, overhead cranes, forklifts, building cradles, passenger lifts, and can also include smaller accessories such as chains, hooks, and rope. Generally, this devices is used to move material that cannot be moved with manual labour, and are tools used in most work environments, such as warehouses, and is a requirement for most construction projects, such as bridges and buildings. This equipment can also be used to equip a larger number of packages and goods, requiring less persons to move material. This includes any form of equipment that is used for vertical lifting, and equipment used to move material horizontally is not considered lifting equipment, nor is equipment designed to support.


A lifting sling is used with a lifting device or crane to lift objects effectively and safely. Slings usually consist of cable, chain, rope or webbing, and generally include metal devices such as hooks, shackles, links or rings. Different types of sling are appropriate for different applications, depending on their composition, working load, length, slinging mode and so on.


A Lifting lug is a plate with a hole in it. As the term specifies, lifting lugs are used for lifting. The hole is sized to fit a clevis pin. Using lifting lugs combined with the clevis pins, loads are transferred from one mechanical component to another. For mechanical static equipment, these lifting lugs are used by cranes for transportation and installation. While lifting this mechanical equipment, the lugs must be able to carry the complete weight of the equipment. Also, while transporting and installation various kinds of forces act on those lifting lugs. Hence, the lifting lug design has to be accurate enough to avoid any failure.


Shoulder patterned lifting eye bolts, often called machinery eye bolts, collared lifting eye bolts or lifting eyes, feature a shoulder under the eye that provides greater stability for angular lifts by reducing stress on the shank. They are primarily used for permanent mounting to industrial machinery or equipment for lifting. Lifting eye bolts can also be used for other rigging, and suspension applications, or they may be used as anchor points for other rigging hardware. A machinery eye bolt has a threaded shank with inch threads that is intended for use with tapped holes that have been engineered as a lifting point. Carbon steel or 304 stainless steel lifting eye bolts are available.


The lifting bracket with fastening plate has a load capacity of 700 kg. It is used to move welding tables and other heavy Sigmund elements safely and easily. It is fastened quickly and simply with four clamping bolts. The general regulations for the use of shipping brackets must be followed. The load capacity can be reduced substantially, depending on operating conditions. During transport, the table may not be raised more than 100 mm, and no one is permitted underneath the table. In addition, the shipping brackets can be used as an easy fastener for lashing straps.


Standard lifting davits are available with manual or powered hoist and or winch lifting apparatus. These are mostly designed solely for lifting goods and machinery. Lifting davits are a very effective solution for remote work site applications where standard cranes and standard lifting apparatus would be too cumbersome or expensive to put in place. Most people generally consider lifting davits to be primarily utilised on ships and boats for lifting and lowering small craft. However industrial lifting davits cover a much wider range of duties in portable and stationary applications in many other locations including tall structures, roof tops, workshops, vehicles, utility works and below ground, in addition to marine uses. Standard lifting davits are available with manual or powered hoist and or winch lifting apparatus. These are generally designed solely for lifting goods and machinery and are therefore unsuitable for carrying people.


Lifting flange can have a safety hoist ring for attachment to spools and some lifting flange can have a lifting shackle for lifting.


For decades, heavy lift cranes have been deployed in offshore oil and gas fields for installation purposes. Heavy-lift barges are used to both transport the equipment offshore and lift it into place via powerful cranes. With lifting capacities greater than 10,000 tons, heavy lift cranes are many times used in single-lift operations. In other words, the equipment, such as topsides, are lifted from the barge and mated with the facility jacket in one heavy lift.

At Universal Engineering, no client would be having a void of worry as we cover everything from start to finish. We are here to solve your lifting problems whether it is advice or to design your dream lifting equipment. We prioritize our lifting equipment services like beam lifting equipment , spreader bar lifting equipment, spreader beam, lift beam and four point spreader lift beam (spreader bar for lifting and load spreader). Along with this we do spreader beam calculation and design.

Universal provide one tone spreader bar which is in stock and available for rental for any lifting equipment in a cost effective manner.
