Our range of flexible and solid coupling provide a cost effective, high strength shaft to shaft connection for a variety of applications. The couplings offer a high bending moment, infinite adjustability and zero backlash. Brake systems with disc brake couplings are also supplied. Our engineering department is able to design complete drive assemblies which incorporate rotating machines, brakes and couplings.


  • Rigid & Gearflex
  • Disc Brake Flexible
  • Cone Ring
  • Tonoflex Rope Drum


The Navtech anti collision system is designed to protect moving equipment from colliding with stationary objects or other moving equipment. The Navtech crane and boom anti collision system uses high resolution radar to identify hazardous obstructions in the path of the moving assembly. The system has complete 360° radar coverage and is not affected by rain, fog or dust.

Sam Technology also offer a range of anti-collision solutions including simple doppler radar or sensors which can be fitted to overhead cranes or other moving machinery. This prevents collision with end stops, adjacent cranes or stationery objects.

Cabins & Seats

Sam Technology is proud to represent the Merford range of crane cabins and seats in Australia. We work closely with the client to design cabins for cranes used for the shipping, steel and aluminum industries. The cabins are made from pressed or stainless steel and they are renowned for their strength, rigidity and corrosion protection. The Merford Cabin is purpose wired to the operator’s seat. Cabins are manufactured from mild steel or stainless providing maximum vision for the operator. Cabins fitted to cranes operating over furnaces have special 50mm thick anti blast glass fitted. The Ergo seat is a specially designed seat that provides upper body support having a large range of adjustments.

Container Spreaders

The Stinis range of container spreaders is offered by Sam Technology.

A leading manufacturer producing more than 50 different types of spreaders, lifting frames and special purpose designs at short notice. Stinis produces all engineering drawings according to international design codes (DIN, FEM, ASME) Stinis use CAD-techniques and other IT-applications.

The major structural components are produced to the highest quality standards at the Stinis manufacturing plant. Most components are produced to Stinis specifications. All components are assembled in a large assembling hall, where every product is thoroughly checked and tested before shipment to the customer.

Stinis has developed a wide range of container spreaders and cargo lifting equipment. In general there are 6 major product types which can be supplied. Stinis being a proactive company can produce special purpose designs at short notice.

Spreaders for empty container handling

Telescoping top lifting spreaders

Based on a modular design this spreader concept is available for the entire range of handling equipment required in container terminals.

LONG-TWIN spreaders.

This recent innovative (and patented) design increases gantry crane productivity by 20-25%. These LONG-TWIN Spreaders expand the 20ft containers separately up to a distance of 1.6 meters from each other. This is advantageous for handling operations (positioning on hatches, seal checking on the dock, easy positioning for yard handling equipment).

Accessory equipment for container handling

A variety of accessory equipment required by terminal operators in their day-to-day operations. Telescoping over height / over wide adapter frames for gantry cranes and yard handling equipment, safety cages for lashing activities (fixed or telescoping), safety cages and heavy lift frames.


  • Overheight
    Special Lashing Baskets

Emergency Hydraulic Disc Calipers

We offer the Antec range of hydraulic disc calipers, fitted to crane and winch drums used for various applications.


  • Winches
  • Conveyor Drives

Brakes & Braking Systems

Sam Technology still service the Schmidt & Muller shoe brake designs which have been supplied to the market for the past 60 years.

Sam Technology also distributes the Antec range of operating shoe and disc brakes for cranes, winches, and mining equipment. For the past years Antec have been a major supplier of disc brakes to the Wind Turbine industry. Spare parts for wind turbine brakes are available from Sam Technology.


  • Rail
  • Disc, Shoe & Drum
  • Thrustor & Thrustor Brakes
  • Electromechanical

Radio Control

Radio control systems are supplied as stand alone or integrated into larger systems.

Supplied as a pendant with push buttons or belt mounted with joy sticks. Sam Technology was the first company to introduce Radio Control to the Australian market and we have considerable experience integrating systems.


  • Handheld Push Button
  • Belt Mounted
  • Console Box

Load Weighing

Incosa offers a full range of CE approved load cells for hoisting and winching equipment. All types are available with standard mV output, amplified 4-20 mA output or CAN-open connection.

The load cells on cable are very easy to install near the fixed point of the hoist with no extra mechanical modifications. These load cells can be used for capacities from 500kg to 20,000kg with clamps available for a large range of cable diameters. Capacity per fall and the cable diameter are required parameters. Traction load cells can also be mounted with shackles in the fixed point of the hoist. The signal is independent of the cable so cable changes have no influence on the signal. The capacities are between 500kg to 15000 kg.

High precision load pins for load limiting and load indication on hoisting equipment. These high precision load pins can be mounted at the fixed point or the return pulley without any loss of height. Capacity, diameter and length are necessary parameters to quote the load pins.


  • Load Cells on Cables
  • Traction
  • Annular
  • Load Pins

Rope Drums

Sam Technology Engineers manufacture single and multi layer rope drums to client specifications. We also refurbish worn rope drums. The machine shop has installed a new CNC lathe to machine drums up to 2 meters diameter and 6 meters long. Total job piece capacity is 10 meters long x 2.3 meters diameter weighing 20 ton. Drums offered within this capacity are turned not milled.


  • Winches
  • Cranes
