Gunnebo Lifting

In 1764 a mr Hans Hultman got approval from the Swedish king to set up a forge to manufacture nails and bolts for ship-making and that’s where the story of Gunnebo Industries begins. The business became successful and soon expanded to include iron smelting with charcoal and a wrought iron factory. Today our chain factory is still located only steps away from where it all started.
Over the years Gunnebo Industries have lead the development in the industry in a number of ways. For an example we were one of the first in the world, in 1906, to use electric welding for chain manufacturing, which made the chain stronger and more reliable and soon became the standard procedure world-wide.
Product- and manufacturing development has always been a corner stone in our foundation and it’s a re-occurring theme in the company’s line of history. An example is the coupling link G – an invention by Gunnebo Industries that revolutionized the lifting industry where welded slings had been the only option. This opened up possibilities in the industry that had not existed before.
Other inventions by Gunnebo Industries are: the self-locking hook (BK), the electrically insulated rollerbearing swivel, the Universal Welding hook and - of course – the unique GrabiQ system. GrabiQ is a grade 10, all-inclusive system, with integrated shortening functions designed to make rigging and lifting safer, more efficient and user-friendly. Again Gunnebo Industries changed the conditions for lifting to something new and better that the world had not seen before.
Today we are truly global, having our head office in Sweden, manufacturing units in Sweden, Norway and USA; sales companies in ten countries spread out on all continents. More than that, through our extensive distributor network covering more than 50 countries, Gunnebo Industries’ products are readily available all over the world.


Slings & Components Grade 10 - GrabiQ

GrabiQ - our all-inclusive chain sling system for coupling, shortening and lifting in Grade 10. Our GrabiQ sling system is designed to improve and make your lifting as quick and easy as possible.
The components are made from special quenched and tempered alloy steel, a guarantee for very high strength, low weight, high wear resistance and long life. All Lifting components are uniformly marked with equivalent chain size, grade, manufacture's designation and name for positive identification.

Shackles & Rigging Screws

Our shackles are manufactured at our own forging company, specialized in quality shackle production for nearly 60 years. The shackles are made from a range of steel qualities, including stainless acid proof steel and high grade alloy manufacturing and control of top quality products.

Slings & Components Grade 8 - Classic

Our Classic system is more than just another chain sling system. It is a total lifting concept for heavy lifting. Our chain and components are designed to give more flexibility, more options to meet any lifting situation involving slings - whether it is chain, steel wire rope or soft slings.
The components are made from special quenched and tempered alloy steel, a guarantee for very high strength, low weight, high wear resistance and long life. All Lifting components are uniformly marked with equivalent chain size, grade, manufacture's designation and name for positive identification.

Chain

In each step of the manufacturing of the chain, our systematic quality monitoring will ensure the highest safety and the longest life span in the product. Our chain is made from special quenched and tempered alloy steel, a guarantee for very high strength, low weight, high wear resistance and long life.

Offshore Components

Adverse weather and rough sea conditions - sometimes in combination with extremely low temperatures - must be included in the design and safety factor of container lifting sets. The heat treatment of the components must ensure proper ductility and strength to sustain shock loads which may be imposed when the container is lifted from the deck of a vessel.
The lifting sets (chain or wire rope sling, shackles and master links) must be specially designed for the purpose to lift offshore containers. One of the main differences compared to the onshore standard or specification, is that it allows for the dynamic forces at sea by adding an extra enhancement factor to increase the level of safety. Another difference is that the requirements and testing of materials that will be used in cold environments, are more extensive.

Rotating Lifting Points RLP and ERLP

Gunnebo Industries’ Rotating Lifting Point (RLP) has a dismountable D-ring to enable assembly of roundsling, master link, link or hook directly onto the lifting point. It is equipped with a hexagon screw to make it easy to disassemble/ assemble with a wrench. The ERLP is designed to fit more confined spaces to where the space for rotation is limited and has a fixed eye. Both lifting points rotates 360° and pivots 180°, making them strong, flexible and reliable.
