Demag Cranes & Components has installed two double girder travelling cranes, with spans of 30.8 and 31.5m at Rainham Steel's Scunthorpe distribution centre. The cranes, both rated at 7t + 7t SWL, have two Demag DR-PRO
The cranes, both rated at 7t + 7t SWL, have two Demag DR-PRO wire rope hoists, upon which magnets are mounted. Use of magnets for the lifting process eliminates time consuming 'slinging' of loads and improves safety by excluding operators from the lifting area.
The cranes have long travel speeds of 8 - 80m/min, cross travel speeds of 5 - 25m/min and hoisting speeds of 1 - 16m/min. Drive motors feature AC frequency inverters for variable speed, providing smooth movement and precise positioning accuracy in all motions.
