Hook lift frame kit – up to 30% lighter and 60% faster assembly

SSAB’s hook lift frame kit consists of precision laser-cut Strenx® 700MLH tubes and cold-formed, high-strength steel profiles made of Strenx 700MC D. The engineer-verified and field-tested design offers a stronger and lighter alternative to traditional hook lift frames, which typically use standard, hot-rolled mild steel sections.

Complete kit to build your hook lift frames

You simply weld together the components of the SSAB assembly kit to build a complete hook lift frame. Even though the frame is up to 30% lighter than traditionally built frames, it still has maximum load capacity of 20.000 kg over a 6.0 m length.

The assembled frame can then be used as a base for building hook lift tippers, containers, and similar heavy-duty, material-handling equipment. SSAB Services can also supply other prefabricated parts for your hook lift container or tipper, including floor plates, top rails, sidewalls, and integrated top rails/sidewalls.

Lighter frames give your hook lift tipper/container a competitive edge

Weighing up to 30% less than conventional hook lift frames, your customers will save fuel while being able to carry more payload for higher revenues.

Assemble frames up to 60% faster

Our laser-cut components enable more precise fitment, for a faster, more efficient frame assembly. Weld beads are reduced by up to 70%, meaning less distortion and therefore less need for straightening after welding.

Welding and other recommendations

Welding, bending, and machining recommendations are found in SSAB’s handbooks at www.ssab.com or consult Tech Support, [email protected]. For the SSAB hook lift frame kits, be certain to follow all assembly instructions, in particular the pre-assembly and welding sequences.

The right steel for hook lift frames

Our hook lift frame kits are made from Strenx grades, which adds performance beyond ordinary structural steel. For example, with Strenx tube you immediately have perfect surface quality. Strenx steel makes your hook lift frames stronger, lighter, safer, more competitive, and more sustainable.
