Heat, dust, dirt – steelworks and foundries place high demands on lifting equipment. Metal producers can only be profitable if their furnaces are running. Processes must therefore be safe and extremely reliable.
The metals industry is characterized by high temperatures, dust, splatter, and extreme vibrations. Repetitive lifting processes need to be safe and reliable and thus play an important role for the producer to be profitable.
With the variety of applications, from transporting hot ladles with liquid metals to maintenance works of the furnaces and equipment within these extreme environments, it is critical that the operator is able to safely maintain control of the load during lifting operations.
With decades of experience, J.D. Neuhaus hoists are designed and manufactured specifically to the requirements of the metals industry.
The pneumatic or hydraulic drive system is explosion proof – generates no sparks, needs no electricity, and is suitable for vertical, horizontal, and oblique pulling. Learn more about hazardous area – explosion proof classifications here.
The compact and robust design of the hoists includes a 100% duty rating, with minimal maintenance, ensuring the highest long-term value – proven in this challenging environment.
