For more than a decade, Han-Tek has specialized in the loading and unloading of high-temperature furnaces in the processing of specialty metals. The products that are loaded into these furnaces are often very large and unwieldy—and can weigh 40 tons or more. And be at temperatures well over 1,000 degrees!
The combination of very heavy loads and ultra-high temperatures requires unique load-and-unload systems. No two jobs are alike, but one thing is certain: your typical off-the-shelf cranes and hoists just won’t do. Han-Tek has more than a decade of experience in the design, engineering, installation, training, and service of cranes for this highly specialized market.
Many applications require cranes that not only move heavy bars and billets of red-hot steel and various alloys, but must do so with great precision over great distances and within a short timeframe. Our engineers work closely with customers to sort out a wide range of parameters, including the degree of automation vs. human operation, floor space and height limitations, worker safety, and much more.
Whether it’s the upgrade of an older furnace load/unload system or the installation of an all-new one, let Han-Tek handle your red-hot problems. With cool solutions. To view a case history about a furnace loading crane, click here.
