The Challenge Achieved

Working conditions are very demanding, with ambient temperature oscillations between -20º C and maximum of + 50º C, and internal exposure to temperatures that can reach 1,500 º C. That is why the crane was designed in accordance with the most demanding parameters of the FEM standards, with classifications A8, E8 and M8, and always under the standards required by the customer.
