RAM6000 Pipe Spreader
The RAM6000 is a telescopic pipe handling spreader designed for MHCs, ship cranes, reach stackers and other overhead cranes. The spreader tackles the manual process of handling pipes, which can be a slow and dangerous task.
The pipe spreader has the power to handle a wide range of pipe lengths and diameters. The spreader is powered by an onboard diesel engine and operated from wireless remote controll.
Its four telescopic beams with end manipulators move along a longitudinal axis, enabling the spreader to handle pipes between 1150cm to 1300cm in length.
Lateral adjustments and removal of the central beams allow the crane operator to handle a variety of pipe diameters with ease - 4 x 14-16inch pipes / 3 x 19-35inch pipes or 2 x 36-60inch.
The spreader's mechanical sensing assemblies coupled with LED indicators reassure the crane operator that pipes are securely clamped and ready for hoisting.
Purpose-built padding rings located on the end manipulators and additional padding on each of the spreader's pipe contact points help prevent pipe damage during the handling process.
Monitoring sensor status and fault finding information is carried out via a diagnostic panel providing maintenance personnel troubleshooting information.

Improve operational safety
As the telescopic beams clamp the pipes, there is no danger of the pipes falling when lifting. In addition, the spreader’s mechanical sensors and LED indicators signal the crane operator to notify when the pipes are securely clamped.
More efficient cycle
Due to its design, the spreader can handle a number of pipes at the same time; it can also retract and extend depending on the geometrics of the pipe. Moreover, with the spreader’s memory positioning system (MPS), the spreader will log the positions of the telescopic arms into the system’s memory. Thus, MPS can store a landside and a seaside position, enabling the crane operator to return to either of these positions.
Protects pipe integrity
At the end of each telescopic beam is purpose-built padding rings to prevent the pipe from being damaged in operation.
