MULTIPLE OVERHEAD CRANES FOR MAGNETIC CORE PRODUCTION
Legnano Teknoelectric Company Middle East, based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is a leading company in processing electrical steel to produce magnetic cores for electric transformers, with four production plants in Italy and one in Dubai.
A LARGER, MORE EFFICIENT WORKSPACE
LTC ME’s newly erected factory in Dubai had to be equipped with several overhead cranes of various lifting capacities to assist in LTC ME’s production process. The production facility spreads over 13 000 sqm and is separated into four bays. From the arrival of new material, to the assembly of magnetic cores, to the packaging and dispatch of the finished goods, all processes rely heavily on lifting and moving operations. The aim of the new production facility was to increase more than just the physical space, but also to expand the company’s presence through state-of-the-art production equipment, a modern appearance and compliance with the highest safety standards.
MULTIPLE CAPACITIES AND TWIN-HOIST LIFTING
CXT double-girder cranes with lifting capacities of 80t/20t/10t and two tons have been installed throughout the facility. Equipped with safety features like anti-collision devices and load display, the cranes can be safely and easily operated by radio remote controls, allowing an operator to monitor the load on the crane and manually assist it, if necessary. Twin hoists enable further sychronized lifting with two hoists on one crane. This way, long and heavy parts can be lifted with control and without causing load rotation. Smooth and accurate lifting of items is additionally supported by stepless speeds and true vertical lift, which helps keep the hook centered for precise lifting and positioning.
Konecranes overhead cranes support a steady and reliable production process. With excellent hook approaches at both ends of the crane and minimal headroom requirement, the CXT cranes are designed to eliminate unused space, as the cranes can operate closer to the walls and lift the load higher. The overhead cranes delivered to LTC ME support production processes in a safe and reliable manner. The new equipment color also coordinates well with LTC ME’s red scheme, giving the facility a modern and customized appearance.
