C-hook crane and roller conveyors
For pipes up to a length of 30 m
The system consists of 2 automated C-hook cranes servicing 4 saws (by others).
The first C-hook crane, with a span of 32 m and a maximum work load of 10 t, is located in front of the saws. It distributes single layers of pipes up to a length of 30 m, which arrive on one takeover roller conveyor, to the different saws, as appropriate.
The second C-hook crane, with a span of 17 m and a maximum work load of 5 t, is located behind the saws. It picks up single layers of pipes at the 4 saws (cut down in length to a maximum of 15 m) and transfers them to a single roller conveyor leading to the next production step.
