Cranes and hoists Stahl

Cranes and hoists Stahl Cranesystems provides crane technology to Belarus The company Stahl Cranesystems has supplied hoists and crane components for a newly built wagon factory in Belarus. This crane technology is used, among others, with double-girder overhead traveling cranes, which lift wagon parts weighing up to 20 tons. Near the city of Minsk the Russian-Belarusian joint venture company Osipovichi Wagon Works builds a new plant for the manufacture and overhaul of tank and freight wagons. The 131 million dollar project included the complete renovation of an existing factory workshop and the construction of five new workshops. The operator initially estimated the targeted production capacity of the entire system with up to 2,500 freight cars and 2,000 tank containers per year. Later, the capacity could be increased to 3,500 freight cars. This number is to meet the increasing domestic demand and make imports superfluous. The company wants to export production surpluses to Russia, other CIS countries and the Baltic States. A modern production concept including new cranes will allow a quick change of model, so that production can respond flexibly to demand. In the fall of 2011 – after the completion of the steel structure – the company Autosbitzaptschast Minsk assembled the first cranes. The order included 36 double-girder overhead traveling cranes, seven single girder cranes and one suspension crane – the cranes were manufactured, among others, by Innokran and Haslinger in Germany. The complete crane technology equipment with 71 wire rope hoists, 88 crane end carriages and the required controls were supplied by Stahl Cranesystems, Künzelsau/Germany. The double girder overhead cranes are each equipped with two wire rope hoists (Image 01) – a “big” wire rope hoist type SH60 with 16 to 20 tons capacity and a “fast” wire rope hoist type SH40 auxiliary hoist with a capacity of five tons. In the area of car-paint explosion-proof wire rope hoists are used (Image 02) – on operator request 46 f+h Intralogistics 3/2014

Cranes and hoists 01 The double girder overhead traveling cranes are equipped with two wire rope hoists 02 In the field of painting explosion-proof wire rope hoists are used About Stahl Cranesystems Stahl Cranesystems GmbH, with head offices in Künzelsau/Germany, has more than 130 years experience in crane construction. The manufacturer offers a full range of crane technology and crane components, including chain and rope hoists, winches, and light and small crane systems, as well as drive and control solutions. It is a world leader in explosion protected crane technology. Indeed, Stahl Cranesystems developed the first components for such applications as far back as 1926, thus contributing to today’s industrial standards. The company manufactures its products primarily at the Künzelsau plant, but has other manufacturing facilities in Germany as well as foreign subsidiaries. It has 800 employees worldwide. several cranes were also equipped with operator cabs (Image 03). Cranes secure scheduled start of production Belarus has been independent since the collapse of the Soviet Union, however, the country orients itself politically and economically still on the large neighbor Russia. The trade relations of the planned economy operating state to Germany are rather weak. Thus, the large order with the German crane technology experts has to be classified as relatively significant. Crucial for the procurement of Stahl Cranesystems were the quality of the lifting gear and the international reputation of the manufacturer´s products. Production of the first cars started off on schedule end of December 2011, the rest of the plant buildings and workshops are still under construction. Due to the fast-growing industrial and construction sector, the crane business in Belarus develops well. Further orders for plants in the fields Brest, Minsk and Mogilev are assigned or scheduled.
