Give safety a lift
23 January 2013
Lifting equipment manufacturer, Demag Cranes & Components, has installed two crane systems at Rainham Steel's Scunthorpe distribution centre, as part of the development of a new Â£1.3 million warehouse facility. To me
To meet Rainham Steel's requirements, Demag installed two double girder travelling cranes, with spans of 30.8 m and 31.5 m, both rated at 7 tonnes + 7 tonnes SWL.
Both cranes are equipped with two Demag DR-PRO wire rope hoists, upon which magnets are mounted.
The use of magnets for the lifting process improves safety by excluding operators from the lifting area.
Operation of the cranes, hoists and magnets is via a user friendly HBC radio control, which allows the operator to stand clear of the process area.
