Overhead travelling cranes, jib cranes and hoists from Street Crane have been selected by Mining Machinery Developments (MMD) as part of the company’s factory expansion to help speed the manufacture and assembly of heavy-duty mineral-sizing equipment.
Two new bays have been added to MMD’s factory for the manufacture of heavy fabrications. Three 20-tonne overhead cranes in each bay run on full-length freestanding 600m gantries. The bays are also equipped with 10 one-tonne jib cranes.
The cranes will be used for offloading vehicles and advancing product through the various stages of production, as well as supporting workstations manned by welders and platers.
