Another special solution is our development of a slab handling and transport magnet for 'gentle' slab turning. With this type of magnet, slabs can be smoothly turned in a manner that they do not fall or are dropped. This type of magnet has been used for more than 20 years in various steel mills all over the world, e.g. Salzgitter Stahl Ag, ArcelorMittal, Ternium, Colakoglu, Voestalpine etc.
Slab turning magnet for the ‘gentle’ turning of slabs
- Handling, transporting and ‘gentle’ turning of slabs
- Zero surface damage to slabs due to the specially designed contact surface between the magnet and the slab. There is no large surface contact between the magnet with the slab itself
- The slab does not fall or drop off during the 180° turning process
- Impacts and shocks on the crane system are completely eliminated - huge cost saving for the customer on crane maintenance and repairs
