Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene support leg pad for automotive crane outrigger pad.

News 1230

UHMWPE outrigger pad, as an important accessory for automotive crane outriggers, bears the task of contacting and supporting the legs with the ground. Made of Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) material, it possesses excellent characteristics such as wear resistance, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, and self-lubrication, providing stable and reliable support for cranes in various complex ground environments.

First, let’s understand the basic specifications of the UHMWPE outrigger pad. Depending on the different models of automotive cranes, the dimensions, thickness, color, etc., of the outrigger pads vary. Common dimensions include 500mm×500mm, 600mm×600mm, 800mm×800mm, with thickness ranging from 10mm to 50mm. The color is usually black or blue for quick identification on construction sites. Additionally, to meet the requirements of different grounds, the surface treatment of the outrigger pad also varies, such as smooth, textured, anti-slip patterns, etc.

So, why choose Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) as the material for outrigger pads? This is mainly because UHMWPE has an extremely high molecular weight, which gives it excellent wear resistance, impact resistance, and self-lubricating properties. During the contact process between crane outriggers and the ground, the outrigger pad can withstand immense pressure and friction, effectively prolonging the lifespan of the outriggers. Meanwhile, its self-lubricating property allows the outrigger pad to maintain good performance even on damp or muddy ground.

In practical applications, the performance of UHMWPE outrigger pads has been widely recognized by users. Whether on dry asphalt roads, slippery muddy terrain, or rough sandy ground, outrigger pads can provide stable and reliable support for cranes. Furthermore, due to their wear resistance and impact resistance characteristics, the lifespan of outrigger pads is relatively long, greatly reducing user maintenance costs.

Of course, to ensure the performance and lifespan of outrigger pads, users also need to pay attention to some matters during use. Firstly, regular inspection of the wear condition of outrigger pads is necessary. Once severe wear or damage is found, timely replacement is required. Secondly, when storing outrigger pads, direct sunlight and high-temperature environments should be avoided to prevent material aging. Finally, during handling and installation of outrigger pads, care should be taken to avoid collisions and scratches to prevent surface damage.

In summary, UHMWPE outrigger pads, as high-performance and high-reliability accessories for automotive cranes, provide strong guarantees for the stable and safe operation of cranes. With the advancement of technology and continuous material innovation, it is believed that future outrigger pads will be even more outstanding, injecting new vitality into the crane industry’s development.
