The team of the «Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant LLC» produced 5 overhead two-span suspended cranes for a metallurgical plant producing all kinds of carbon and graphite products. The products of this enterprise are widely used not only in the majority of metallurgical enterprises in Ukraine, but also in many countries of the near and far abroad.
The cathode blocks produced by the plant are recognized as the best in all enterprises of the CIS aluminum industry and constitute a serious competition in the world market to the leaders in the production of this type of product. Graphitized electrodes are in great demand in the world market. The company is the only supplier in the CIS of graphitized blocks and anodes impregnated with inorganic compounds for the magnesium industry, and is currently entering the world market with these products.
For the further development of the production capacity of the plant, 5-ton bridge cranes were needed, which were decided to be ordered at our plant. The delivered cranes were necessary for moving the blanks of graphite electrodes and blocks to the machines for their further machining, giving the necessary geometry.
At the same time, the Customer’s technical assignment provided for increased requirements for the safe operation of crane equipment, the use of modern metal structures for the crane span bridge (box girder), the availability of a frequency drive for crane movement and hoists to increase the efficiency of crane usage and increase their service life.
Manufactured 5 bridge cranes fully comply with all the conditions specified in the customer specification.
