Baosteel Chooses KAMAG Industrial Lift Transporters
KAMAG Transporttechnik GmbH recently delivered a total of 18 industrial lift transporters to Baoshan Iron & Steel Co. Ltd., more commonly-known as Baosteel, in Shanghai, China. Baosteel is the second largest Chinese iron and steel company conglomerate with an annual turnover of over 30 billion $ and has around 100,000 employees – and has been a satisfied customer of KAMAG and SCHEUERLE for more than 20 years.
The KAMAG 2107 HM2 industrial lift transporters complete with tilting system and top-mounted cab and KAMAG U2105 HM2 with cabs mounted below for driving under pallets are optimally prepared to face the adverse working conditions in the steelworks. The pendulum axles with hydraulic compensation always provide the necessary stability whereby the safety systems trigger an immediate alarm if there is a height difference of more than 60 mm. However, this is just one of many safety features – different systems continuously update the driver about all driving situations and possible hazards.
With a tiltable payload of 100 t and featuring a comparatively low tare weight of just 50 t, the KAMAG 2107 HM2 complete with a high-mounted driver´s cab is one of the most powerful and efficient industrial lift transporters for the transshipment and handling of scrap metal or other bulk material. With 421 hp from their Cat engines, the Baosteel versions provide an impressive climbing performance of 20% and a traction force of 37,000 daN. The maximum speed without load is 35 km/h.
Long material such as slabs or coils but also all types of pallet systems are the operational areas of the KAMAG U2105 HM2 with its driver´s cab mounted below. The five vehicles delivered to Baosteel score well with a good maximum load / tare weight ratio (115 t payload for 35 t tare weight), a traction force of 35,000 daN and a maximum speed of 35 km/h when unloaded. The IHT U2105 HM2 with its low-mounted cab is powered by a 421 hp Cat engine.
