  • Handling Specialty likes to remain top of mind where there is equipment required for the Steel industry. Advertising in the AIST website is one of the ways we work towards that goal.  Offering steel coil handling equipment, refractory firebrick ladles, slagpot transfer systems, wire rod transfer scissor lifts and heavy-duty mechanical lifts, Handling Specialty has the steel industry covered.

 Products

  • Ladle Lifts
    Handling Specialty's ladle lifts are used in many steel refractories to help replace firebrick. Our ladle lifts are heavy duty and long-lasting, withstanding the harsh melt shop environment and operating for many years....

  • The steel industry presented Handling Specialty with the challenge of designing a solution that met the unique technical and environmental demands of steel companies with blast furnace operations. 

    Since refractory firebrick in pour ladles require continual replacement, a safe and efficient method for replacing the brick was needed.  Handling Specialty's ladle lifts replaced traditional scaffolding used in the re-bricking job.  The lift is loaded into the ladle using a crane, and can be moved to the next ladle requiring re-bricking. These two-stage scissor lifts are designed to withstand harsh melt shop environments. Since developing this solution in the early 80s, Handling Specialty has provided over 80 ladle lifts to steel factories across North America, with many of them still operating today.

    These robust, heavy-duty high-rise tables can be designed in capacities up to 11,000 lbs.  Due to the irregular shape of the ladles, the lift's base and platform is customized to fit the client's ladles precisely.  

    Features

    • Heavy-duty high rise table with custom profile top      
    • Provides a safer and more efficient working environment            
    • Special controls and protection for harsh environment            
    • Lifting platform available flat or with optional perimeter kick plate      

    Standard options include:

    • Hardened fluid runs
    • Reinforced platform
    • Manual lowering valve
    • "Armored" HPU
    • Shackles for four-point lifting by overhead or jib crane

    Optional features include:

    • Unique leveling legs
    • Flat or clip-on platform extensions
  • Hydraulic Scissor Lift for Wire Rod Transfer

  • Kobe Steel, in its Ohio mill, took advantage of a uniquely designed steel transfer car manufactured by Handling Specialty.  The extreme duty car was required to accumulate wire rod continuously and then transfer it between process lines. Two traversing transfer cars, with power-clamp tooling for handling the wire rod, were designed and constructed for a new product assembly line.  Essential to the success of the application were the cars’ durability:  They needed to withstand the harsh manufacturing environment of a steel mill as well as endure continuous cycling.  The 13,000 lb. capacity car had a self-propelled system which incorporated specialized hydraulic and electrical components.

    Features

    • Heavy duty scissor lift
    • Traversing transfer cars with power clamp tooling
    • Continuous running cycle, extreme duty conditions
    • Rugged system built to withstand harsh industrial environment in a steel mill
  • Automated Guided Vehicles
    The manually guided vehicle is feature-rich and designed for the advanced manufacturing sector who are focused on continuous improvement and can easily and cost-effectively be upgraded to an AGV....

  • Manually Guided Vehicles (MGV) & Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV Systems). The manually guided vehicle is feature-rich and designed for the advanced manufacturing sector who are focused on continuous improvement and can easily and cost-effectively be upgraded to an automated guided vehicle system. Automotive, Aerospace, and many other manufacturing industries find countless uses for automated and manually guided vehicles.

    AGV systems are perfect for heavy-duty manoeuvring and overall automation of the factory floor. Looking for a custom, fully autonomous vehicle that moves and transports items in production, warehouse, and distribution centres without operator intervention or permanent conveying systems?
