Iron, steel, aluminum & further basic metals
Many companies in the steel, ferrous and non-ferrous industry and their foundries rely on Demag process cranes all over the world. Why? Because we supply the right solution for every requirement – along the entire value chain.
Our crane installations are used under arduous operating conditions – which means that the cranes have to be designed to withstand high ambient temperatures, extreme dust levels and strong vibrations.
All over the world we also have special local expertise. This combination enables us to create solutions tailored to meet our customers’ specific needs.
Fields of application
- Loading and unloading
- Steelworks and foundries
- Rolling mills
- Storage and staging
Our mobile harbour cranes of the Terex Gottwald brand are already used for loading and unloading basic material and provide for high efficiency – such as for transferring iron ore ships, but also for handling scrap iron and steel and other metals which are smelted for recycling.
Steelworks and foundries
We have the right crane solutions for a variety of applications in foundries: casting cranes with up to four crane girders for the safe and efficient handling of ladles. Double-girder overhead travelling cranes in-house transport of the components required for casting (e.g. mould boxes) and for handling the castings to be processed.
In addition, we supply technologies tailored to meet individual needs for all lifting and transport requirements in hot and cold rolling mills. These applications include the in-house transport of slabs and ingots as well as the handling of rollers for storage and maintenance. And with our travel units, we provide complete drive solutions for rail-mounted transport applications.
Storage and staging
Terex MHPS supplies crane installations of semi-automatic and fully automated design for the dedicated storage and staging of metal products (e.g. coils made of aluminium or other metals, bar stock profile sections, etc.). Depending on the requirements, we also supply our specially developed warehouse management system.
