Huisman has successfully tested four new 3D printed 350 mt crane hooks according to the strictest criteria, and under the supervision of the independent certification authority Lloyd's Register.
The hooks are approx. 170 by 130 cm in size, have a weight of 1,700 kg each and a loading capacity of 350 mt. Each hook exists of approx. 90 kilometres of welding wire.
An important benefit of using this technique for crane hooks is the significant reduction in delivery time at a cost that competes with forgings and castings, and a more consistent quality level.
