MAGNET LIFTING SYSTEMS FOR ROLLS METAL TRANSPORTATION
We present the solution for handling wire rod coils thanks to two motorized rotating magnets with 2500Kg SWL in Railsider Mediterráneo, Portbou.
In this project the challenge is to unload and rotate the rolls in a very fast and safe way with the crane operator always away from the load without the need to get on the train wagon.
When transporting coils or metal sheets, it is very important to take into account the is the constantly changing ratio of the length to the width. In our solution the magnets are equipped with a motor and additional functions to adapt them to the specific conditions of the load while avoiding human contact.
The operator can handle all kinds of rolls, whether in fully-rolled lengths, non-standard dimensions or various formatted lengths.
