Special cranes

Operating conditions in modern production facilities increasingly require a material handling solution which is tailored to the individual needs of the customer. We are specialised in the preparation and development of special solutions. You can profit from our wealth of experience gained in a large number of projects for all industrial sectors We will be pleased to implement innovative solutions for you, too.

Highest flexibility – for perfect match.

Whether automatic crane systems, partly automated systems, cranes with particular requirements as to approach dimensions, applications in stainless steel, crane systems for difficult working conditions, integration of cranes into existing production processes or other kinds of requirements – we implement your requests.

We plan, build and install special cranes for any requirement. We carry out all the processes - conception, construction, production and commissioning. Experience shows that when creating individual special solutions, adaptations have to be made again and again. This is why you have got one contact person who accompanies you throughout the whole project and who gives you competent and reliable assistance at any time. Your requests will be considered in any phase of the project.

Crane made of stainless steel

In industrial sectors like the food industry, pharmaceutical industry, aerospace engineering, semiconductor industry etc., operating resources are subject to particularly high requirements and strains. We develop and produce stainless steel cranes particularly for these sectors. Due to the unconditional use of corrosion-resistant materials our stainless steel cranes boast the following benefits:

  • High availability without costly downtimes, even in intense multi-shift operation
  • Low degree of wear, which reduces the need for spare parts significantly
  • High production safety as there is no corrosion impairing the product or the clean room category
  • High acceptance among our customers’ clients

Depending on the kind of application, we use different materials. Let us know your needs and we take care of production, assembly, commissioning and maintenance of your crane.
