3Dx

 

 
 STRONGER!
Suitable for panels up to 12 tonne.
 FASTER!
No Shear Bars! No Tension Bar and mesh interference.
Easy remote clutch release​
 SAFER!
No sharp edges.
Lighter than comparable capacity systems.

 
 
So, why the need for change?

Reid™ undertook extensive research into the construction challenges and “pain points” facing the precast panel manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand. Working closely with leading precasters, Reid™ were able to identify the following industry need which had remained unmet, until now:

-  Less congestion of the fittings, reinforcement and mesh
- One lifting solution to cover 90% of panels
- To reduce the in-place cost of anchors
- Easier and quicker clutch engagement and release 

In collaboration with key precasters, the Reid™ Product Development Team set about designing the
3Dx™ Lifting System - an innovative solution to address the industry’s pain points.

3 dimensional forged design
made from tough Alloy Steel.

Provides greater concrete anchorage and anchor strength. Faster Installation for precasters! The compact design of the 3Dx™ is easier to manoeuvre around the mesh and fittings, yet delivers 8.5t capacity.

 







I-Beam design and elongated tension bar hole.
Provides maximum shear capacity without the need for a shear bar! Eliminates the congestion between the tension bar and the central mesh. Provides precasters with both a lower in-place-cost and installation efficiencies over comparative
flame cut anchors.
 
Rounded outer edges.
Forged design eliminates the sharp edges and burrs commonly found on conventional flame cut anchors. Reduces OH&S risk in
the precast yard.
 
Symmetrical tapered clutch
engagement hole.

Forging allows for the profile of the clutch engagement hole to better match the profile of the clutch bolt. Provides for easier, faster clutch engagement and release.




Forged Alloy Steel.
Provides for a smaller, lighter and stronger clutch that achieves 8.5t tensile capacity. The compact 3Dx™ clutch is easy to carry around the precast yard and on site, reducing OH&S  risks.


Slim waisted handle design.
Improved clearance between the clutch and the panel edge during lifting. Preserves the quality of your panel edges and eliminates the need for remedial repairs to damaged edges sustained during the initial lift, storage, transportation, rotation or the placement of the panels on site.


Patented new Torus design.
Contributes to the improved clearance of the clutch from the panel edge. Increased capacity utilising the smallest possible void.
Backwards compatibility...
The new 3Dx™ Torus is backwards compatible with a range of Reid™ proprietary lifters including the 5t FL050 Face Lifters. Compatible with the JAWS™ Edge Lift SJS™, SJH™ and SJM™ anchors when used with a 3Dx™ void former. 

Exterior shape design.
The voids created in the panel edges provide far smoother clutch engagement and release than competing lifting systems.


Void Former seals.
Improved sealing around the head of the anchor results in less slurry ingress that otherwise needs to be removed in order to fit the clutch properly. Saves time and headaches on site.

 

Improved rubber material grade.
Precast Yard Tough! The 3Dx™ Void Former is easy to clean without the need for solvents, but can handle the harshest of cleaning products and processes that a precast crew can dish up.

 

Heavy Duty Support Plate.
Designed in conjunction with the 3Dx™ Void Former, the robust support plate is the perfect accessory to further enhance the fitment of the anchor. The use of the support plate improves the seal of the void former around the anchor, reducing concrete ingress. Versatile: The support plate can also be fixed to the shutter.


Versatility... 
The 3Dx™ void former is compatible for use with Reid™ JAWS™ SJS™, SJH™ and SJM™ Edge Lift anchors.




 


 


   

 Central Mesh Application  Double Mesh Application
 
 
 
Central Mesh: 
The tension bar runs beneath
the central mesh.
The perimeter bar can either be
 placed on the mesh
(as shown above) or
 on the neck of the anchor.

Double Mesh:
The tension bar rests on top
 of the bottom layer of the mesh.
Perimeter bars rest in the
neck of the anchor.
