A high volume automotive castings foundry in the north of England has become one of the first users of Street Crane’s new sway control system, developed in conjunction with Finnish specialist Innocrane. Two 5t cranes have recently been commissioned for ladle handling in the castings hall.

Each crane uses TVX open barrel hoists and will handle the ladles of molten metal on a single hook. Street says that the sway control system maximises load stability in the long and cross travel modes with optimum travel speed.
