Various bulk goods, such as raw materials and fuels, are stored in the cement industry. The required transport systems have to be specially designed for these applications.
Fully automatic process cranes are recommended from the very beginning wherever various materials have to be continuously stored and retrieved. Corresponding parameters, such as areas reserved for certain additives, can be specified by means of a visualisation system, which represents both the grid of the store as well as its surroundings. At a central control station, the personnel can use a PC to switch the installation on and off or create special blends, while simultaneously viewing fault messages or operating status information.
An automatic process crane carries out the often difficult positioning processes quicker and usually with more accuracy than a human operator. For sway motions that often occur with the short positioning times and high travel and braking speeds, damping systems are used to prevent load sway by continuous detection of the load condition variables followed by appropriate adjustments.

MHE-Demag cement grabbing cranes follow a heavy-duty classification in order to ensure the continuous feeding of the cement plant operation. These high production cranes have high speed requirements and are operated from a closed cabin due to the dusty environment. The cranes can be equipped with either a hydraulic grab and a single winch or a four wire rope grab operated by two winches, an opening winch and a closing winch.
We carry out Equipment Audits for you to determine, analyse and assess the actual status of your material handling equipment and systems.
