Twistlock Handling Solutions


As a development of the traditional Lloyds British Automatic and Semi-Automatic Container Handling Spreader Beams, Lloyds Somers has developed and provided many bespoke twistlock lifting devices. These include automatic handling of high risk, non-standard containers, to a multitude of industries such as nuclear, geological, recycling & steel. The devices utilise proven twistlock technology with both mechanical and electronic interlocks to ensure safe and repeatable operation. 

The twistlock mechanisms are made as cassettes and include the twistlock housing, spring-loaded landing pin, anti-rotation interlock plates and proximity sensors for ease of maintenance and to facilitate inclusion in a variety of frame sizes to suit the positioning of the twistlock castings in the component to be handled.
