Whiting has many years of building reliable scrap handling overhead cranes for a variety of industries. Our robust cranes are built with a distinct focus on maximizing uptime and minimizing maintenance. Scrap handling cranes can be controlled from a cab, radio, or with a semi-automated lifting solution.
The primary considerations in specifying a Scrap Handling system are:
- Tons to be moved
- Cycle time
- Distances moved
- Highest lift required
- Any below-the-hook devices such as magnets or grapples
Whiting has produced a number of products for Scrap handling applications.
Bucket or Grappling Crane
A Bucket-handling Crane or Grapple Crane is used to handle bulk material. These cranes are usually high duty cycle and require a close analysis of the volume or weight to be moved in a given time.
