  • Part of the steel mill maintenance is the maintenance of the tundish. Our tundish cranes help you to maintain the tundish efficiently.
  • Handling molten metal either in a foundry or in a steel mill is a serious task, which is being handled efficiently and safely by MHE-Demag.

In the steel production industry, safety has always been of paramount importance when it comes to people and processes. Our cranes are specifically engineered to ensure material is handled safely in steel plants.
 
The harsh operating conditions in foundries, with difficult loads, complex handling functions and high or extremely fluctuating ambient temperatures, demand high levels of safety and functional reliability of the systems to be used.
 
For this reason, Demag has developed a three-pillar system especially for difficult applications. First of all, “redundant systems” are employed. These can be utilised because the system is comprised of various sub-systems for hoists and travel units as well as for the power supply and crane control system. If a sub-system fails or is undergoing maintenance, the installation can continue operation using the redundant systems to avoid any downtime. Secondly, “intelligent controls” for versatile operating modes have been introduced, with an integrated control mode and error management for the drive control system, the bypass controls and control of the general systems. The third pillar comprises “crane visualisation”. This provides a clear representation of the complex systems and gives the operator an overview of the installation status at all times.
 
We supply all types of cranes for the steel mill industry. Charging cranes, ladle cranes, maintenance cranes, billet handling cranes, magnet cranes. You name it, we supply it.
 
 
 Charging cranes in nearly all capacities are within our capability.
