Modulift are well known across the globe, through their worldwide network of distributor partners, for their core range of high quality off- the-shelf products, which include the popular originally designed modular spreader beams and modular spreader frames that are interchangeable. The original modular and pin-ended design concept that Modulift came up with provides an efficient and flexible lifting system that can be adjusted to adapt to meet varying project requirements.
This efficient modular space-saving design also makes their products perfect for exporting components around the world using standard shipping containers or via roadfreight, helping to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible.
Standing the test of time
Modulift’s long-proven core products are well known throughout the industry, having an exceptional reputation for quality and endurance. Due to the high level of QA and tightly-held in-house manufacturing processes, Modulift’s products have stood the test of time – therefore customers can be assured that any product bought today will fit any product of the same MOD size that was built nearly 20 years ago, and with the same level of high quality. Therefore, consumers should always check that components are genuine Modulift products!
Modulift also pride themselves on their experienced team of in-house engineers – they are the perfect technical expert partner to support companies that don’t have the right expertise in-house.
Modulift’s specialist engineers can come up with custom-designed solutions for complex lifts, utilising the latest design software available to offer with the most cost-effective designs. This custom design service also includes designing complex rigs and producing detailed rigging drawings. Modulift can help every step of the way from the initial design concept through to manufacturing/ sourcing of equipment required.
Modulift can also provide products suitable for the industries that requires enhanced levels QA, providing extensive verification for even the most challenging project specification. Services include individual proof load testing of products and employing third party verification from design through to materials and manufacturing.
Innovation and knowledge all under one roof. As the demand for custom solutions
grow, Modulift are not only expanding the team, but are also enhancing its
operations by building a new state of the art manufacturing facility. This has not only improved their manufacturing processes to expand their capacity, enabling them to increase their support to partners, it also offers even faster delivery times across their standard and custom designed lifting equipment range, ensuring that whatever the issue, they have the solution!
You only need to look at the number of case studies Modulift have that show how they have helped companies across the industry! As technical experts in the lifting industry, Modulift invest heavily in their research and development on their existing designs, as well as developing new products with advanced engineering tools. Coupled with the benefit of their new site, all of this expertise now sits under one roof – from design through to the new manufactured product being despatched, this makes Modulift the preferred partner for their global leading lifting industry partners.
Constantly striving to develop new products that meet demand, Modulift listen carefully to their customers needs, understanding that user research and positive user experience (UX) is key to producing a successful product.
When developing new products, they make a continuous effort to improve current design solutions by implementing the latest advancements in engineering and computer design programs.
Certified Industry Experts
All new and existing products are designed and manufactured and certified to exacting industry standards including EN and DNV standards, they "also ensure they don’t over design, keeping them easy to manufacture and of an optimised size, so that they don’t use more material than is necessary. This keeps the costs down and reduce the weight making the product easier to transport, handle and manoeuvre, which benefits their customers.
Applying more and more advanced design techniques such as finite element analysis which utilise analysis theories like stiffness matrix, non-linear and buckling analysis keeps Modulift ahead of the competition and giving their customers the best optimised design products.
