Metals Industry

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.

Operating Versatility

High loads, long lifts, ease of installation and removal, and the safety of surrounding workers must all be considered.

Environmental Conditions

Due to high temperatures dust, and dirt, the operating environment is one of the most unpredictable.

Explosive Environment

High demands on safety and explosion protection make it challenging for personnel and equipment.
