Features of Ladle Cranes

  • Ladle Cranes are the main equipment in the continuous casting process of steelmaking. Mainly used for lifting and transferring liquid ladle.
  • From the overall structure, it can be divided into (double-girder) double-beam double-track, (Four-girder) four-beam four-track, (Four-girder) four-beam six-track, and other types. The first two are generally used for medium and large tonnage Ladle Cranes, and the third is generally used for extra large tonnage Ladle Cranes.
  • The Ladle Cranes designed and manufactured by our company have the characteristics of advanced technology, novel structure, safe and reliability, economical and durability, and simple maintenance.
  • In addition, our company's Ladle Cranes can provide the following functions for users to choose from: rotatable spreader; gantry hook distance variable; load weighing, and display.

Advantages of Ladle Crane

  • Ladle cranes are becoming increasingly important in the modern steel mill, as they allow for more efficient and safe operations. with Redundancy in All critical systems, meaning that even if one system fails, the ladle crane can continue to operate safely. This makes ladle cranes ideal for use in high-risk environments, such as steel mill.
  • Our electrical room is pressurized and Industrial Air conditioning (often abbreviated as Industrial A/C or Industrial AC)
  • Ladle crane can automatically limit the sway of the load during the handling process, achieve faster load handling and more precise load positioning, and stabilize it in place during the handling process.
  • ladle crane can be set with a hazardous area limit function, which reduces hazardous conditions when the load is moved and prevents damage to the load, crane, and surrounding facilities.
