  Modulus Handling Systems carries a full range of below the hook devices for your industrial needs in both standard sizes and custom fabricated equipment for specific tasks.  
Coil hooks (c-hook) Coil hooks are most often used to lift and move loads such as coiled cable, paper-rolls, steel culverts or any product wrapped around a spool. When you make a lift, you want to be sure the coil hook you use is the most appropriate for the job and will perform it safely. Several design options are available such as telescopic, horizontal and vertical lifters and will be designed to suit your specific product.  

Coil Tongs  
Coil Tongs are suitable for transporting coils on a horizontal axis in applications such as loading or unloading coils of steel. A variety of options may be designed to specifically suit your needs, such as being available in a wide range of capacities and sizes, in both motorized and completely mechanical models.  

Coil Grabs   Used in situations where coils are positioned where the underside of the coil is not accessible, a coil grab is required. By firmly gripping the outside and inside diameter rim, the Coil Tong will grabs hold of the entire coil as opposed to threading the centre spool like a C hook . For added grip, a coil tong can be designed with second set of jaws to distribute the force of the jaws around the coil more uniformly.   

Pallet lifters
Pallet lifters are used to transport loads on pallets in situations where a lift truck or forklift is not available or where pallets must be transported to areas out of reach by other methods. Our Pallet Lifters are balanced to hang level, and forks may be fixed or adjustable.   

Manipulators, End Effectors and Vacuums
Modulus offers a variety of products which enable weightless lifting, moving, positioning and stacking of your product.  To cover a wider area of operation, devices can be mounted on monorails or bridge cranes, either suspended from the ceiling or mounted on columns.  
Vacuum attachments can use basic support such as the Orbit-Arm, a pivoting joined arm which can assume innumerable positions within a 9.9 ft. radius. It can be fixed to a ceiling or wall, or can be mounted on a floor-fixed column or an electrically powered truck.

Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews

PSR's are required when new equipment or modified equipment are introduced into the workplace. The workplace and work procedures are reviewed by a professional engineer who is familiar with the equipment and processes that is able to verify the general conformity with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Safety Act of Ontario and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments .


N.D.T. - Non Destructive Testing

NDT is an examination of products for defects/cracks. Modulus employs a wide range of analysis techniques to evaluate the properties of material without causing damage. In areas where welds are used to join two or more metal parts, non-destructive testing is imperative because welds may encounter loads that may cause the structure to fail if not created to proper specification.


Home Made Device / System Certification

 Ontario law states a lifting device shall be made of sufficient strength to ensure the safety of all workers. In addition, each device is to be inspected by a competent person. Lifting devices shall have specific markings and instruction for proper use. At Modulus our professionals are “Competent” and knowledgeable, capable of evaluating and supplying complete certification of your devices to ensure safety according to the law.
