Manufacturer of rigging, lifting and material, handling hardware, the Crosby Group, will present lifting solutions for the future of construction at this years Bauma in Munich, Germany. The group will present its premier brands, including Crosby, Gunnebo Industries, Crosby Straightpoint, Crosby BlokCam and Crosby IP. 

Visitors of the Grosby Group stand will get a chance to learn more about the new Crosby BlokCam X3L and M3L crane camera systems that extend the legacy of the original X2 and M3 systems. The X2 is a fully modular system compatible with tower cranes, while the M3 is a fully modular camera for telescopic and mobile cranes which can be installed in just five minutes. New versions include a new transmitter that can connect to up to two sensors upon request; a repeater that comes with ball joint mount (reducing the ports required); new sensor with integrated audio and video plug; and assembly with an improved Wi-Fi signal. X3L and M3L versions are also available with a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery and charger. 

Lifting in the construction industry has always been difficult as there is a lot of variability in the loads. Crosby-branded solutions that will be displayed at Bauma include a range of shackles and CrosbyIP clamps. The shackle is one of the most powerful, important, irreplaceable pieces of material handling equipment there is. 

The company’s range of Gunnebo Industries’ products include the GrabiQ Grade 10 chain sling, an all-inclusive sling system for coupling, shortening, and lifting in the construction industry. GrabiQ gives users the guarantee of correctly sized components for the size of chain, so stockholding for distributors is minimized. The Midgrab is an inline shortener that allows the rigger to adjust the sling anywhere on the chain, not only at the top assembly.

At the heart of The Crosby Group portfolio is its Crosby Straightpoint range of load monitoring hardware and supporting state-of-the-art software, including its most popular load cell, the Radiolink plus. The long-range, 2.4GHz version provides a wireless range of 3,280 feet to the manufacturer’s SW-HHP handheld or software options. A Bluetooth output version can be connected to any smartphone running its free HHP app on iOS or Android at ranges up to 328 feet. These products frequently combine below-the-hook of tower and mobile cranes with Crosby shackles. Bauma visitors will also be able to see low headroom load shackles and compression load cells that are commonly utilized for center of gravity testing.
