Metals Processing

We’ve designed, built, and installed sophisticated charging crane, hoist, and automation solutions for the metals industry that were unheard of only a few years ago. Like moving a multi-ton billet, glowing at more than 2500oF, in 360o degrees of rotation in X, Y, and Z axes. Yes, we did that. We’ve also handled large plant modifications and equipment upgrades, loads of DC-to-AC switch overs, and are a leading provider of standard package hoist systems.
