Revolutionary Flexi-Flippers for the ports industry

Extensive trials of revolutionary flippers for STS cranes are imminent in the UK.

The performance and success of the age-old problem-solving solution shall pave the way for a time-saving, cost-efficient, high performance product for the UK’s ports industry.

The trials have been negotiated, agreed and shall be supplied and installed by Barlow Technology Ltd, the sole supplier of the Inamer manufactured product, within the UK & Ireland.

Providing a unique solution to impact damage, wear and costly replacements, whilst reducing downtime on STS spreaders, the innovative design will run up to 40,000 cycles before needing replaced, affording Flexi-Flippers an operational lifespan of more than ten times that of traditional flippers, saving on costly downtimes and expensive container delays, whilst additionally being safer for crane operators.

Using a uniquely engineered mechanism and already in use in a number of terminals throughout Europe, the highly adaptable and durable Flexi-Flipper is manufactured using premium materials and designed to be highly flexible to accommodate impacts and overloads, whilst retaining rigidity for normal loads.

Flexi-Flipper has been patented by the University of Cadiz and is produced by Spanish Inamer; an established company dedicated to the manufacture of parts and industrial maintenance services.
