It is a rotating device that connects containers to a chassis and it is used in crane spreaders and spreaders for straddle carriers for the handling of containers.

COMMENTSThe electric-upsetting and forging process grants a limited stock and a continuous fiber flow.
The advantage offered by Sapes is represented by the fact that we can supply a highly integrated production cycle which – starting from a raw bar – can provide a completely finished component ready to be assembled into the vehicle.
