If you’re looking for an easy-to-use solution to position and/or turn your plate materials, the CrosbyIP Screw Clamps will do the job. With a forged alloy steel body for weight and strength optimization, individually Proof Tested to 2x WLL and unique serial number, these clamps won’t let you down. The Pivots are hardened with a proprietary hardening process, resulting in a strong, yet ductile core and an extremely high surface hardness.

Of course, all clamps come with a test certificate, user manual and on-site training can be provided with the Crosby Rigging Truck.

Devil is in the Details-CrosbyIP Screw Style Clamp

Posted by Crosby on Jan 31, 2018 2:03:05 PM

"Devil is in the Details" 

The CrosbyIP IPSC10 screw style clamp is suitable for use in positioning and turning steel plates and sections.  TheCrosbyIP Logo.jpg pivots (clamp pads) of screw clamps are usually small in size, but actually do all the hard work. When it comes to safety of life and load, CrosbyIP takes care of every little detail of their clamps. The pivots of CrosbyIP clamps undergo a proprietary hardening process, resulting in a strong, yet ductile core and an extremely high surface hardness. To make sure that the pivot keeps the specified hardness and strength, no further surface treatment is done, as this may induce unwanted reactions (such as hydrogen embrittlement).

So, whatever you are lifting or handling, choose CrosbyIP Lifting Clamps

NYC Bridge Constructors Use Crosby Rigging Equipment

Posted by Crosby on Nov 1, 2017 10:54:31 AM

It’s a new bridge with a long history. Originally constructed as a cantilever bridge and opened to traffic in 1955, the Tappan Zee Bridge is being replaced with a 3.1 mile twin span, cable-stayed bridge that crosses the Hudson River at its widest point. Although it serves as a vital crossing of the river for New York residents, it wasn’t originally constructed to last. The initial bridge was built in the wake of the Korean War. This resulted in a tight budget and a shortage of quality materials for building. It was meant to last fifty years (at best) and carry max 100,000 cars. But now, with roughly 140,000 cars crossing daily, it has far exceeded its limits and originally planned fifty-year lifespan.
