When dealing with materials such as slag, coke, sludge, or scrap, it’s critical to employ high-performance, reliable material handling equipment that can withstand harsh, demanding environments. Cranes specifically built for these uses offer reliable performance and optimal strength for various applications.
For slab lifting and handling, in particular, cranes must offer both durability and versatility to ensure optimal reliability and safety.
High-Performance Slab Handling
Commercial slab handling demands machines that provide both heavy-duty versatility and high-speed production performance. Some of the most common slab handling jobs include:
- Transporting hot slabs from continuous casting machine conveyors to storage or to be fed through rolling mills
- Settled concrete repairs for sidewalks, driveways, roads, and runways
- Constructing foundations, retaining walls, and slab floors for both residential and large-scale commercial projects
Slab handling cranes are specifically built to allow for versatility and easy swapping of lifting devices. Custom features include power and signal cables attached directly to crane girders, heavy-duty components, and extremely stable, lightweight engineering.
Slab steel mill cranes are designed to endure high temperatures and harsh environments. These cranes help ensure safe reliable slab handling. Slab steel mill cranes offer uncompromising smoothness and reliable safety assurance.
