Steel Mill Cranes in the field


Normally, there are three types of facilities dedicated to produce very large molten steel pieces or rolled steel: Steelworks, Electric Arc Furnaces (EAFs) and Rolling mills.

Process cranes are designed for heavy duty work, with a safe and guaranteed performance.

Steel mill cranes are usually designed under special specifications.

Iron and steel engineers have standardized a number of requirements for the design of these process cranes.

The under-hook attachments can operate by means of an electro-hydraulic drive as well as by mechanical drive and electromagnetically.
