The Caldwell Group Inc. has been manufacturing lifting equipment since 1954. We manufacture high quality lifting devices to enhance safety and increase production. The Caldwell Group designs and manufactures below-the-hook lifting devices to meet or exceed the latest issue of ASME BTH-1 and ASME B30.20.for use on overhead crane and monorail systems.
All Mill Duty type below-the-hook devices are custom-designed to suit the handling of a wide range of coils, ingots, slabs, plate, sheet and much, much more. For additional information on Caldwell’s Mill Duty product line, visit our website at caldwellinc.com for a small sampling of products for your overhead handling system.
All Mill Duty units are designed and manufactured to suit a heavy or severe mill type environment. Designs include features such as interlocking parent metal connections on load carrying members, to increase lifter life by reducing weld stress in high stress concentration areas; to ensure many years of safe, reliable operation with minimal maintenance.
Caldwell’s new custom-designed Model 272 Mill Duty Motorized Ingot Swivel Grab is a motorized screw type lifting device to accommodate a wide range of ingot width. Additional grip force is applied by mechanical wedge grip of the points once an ingot is lifted. This unit is designed to grip an ingot in the vertical position, swivel and lay the ingot down in the horizontal position.
