Material handling challenges can sometimes require more advanced design and engineering. Unlike those who outsource these services, our in-house design and engineering department is capable of full-service projects. This allows us to prioritize jobs to meet our customers timeline and schedule.
A customer came to us in need of a solution for handling 96,000 lb coils and loading them into railcars using a coil tong. The Reach Stacker seemed like a perfect tool, but we needed to find a solution to account for fitting the existing coil tong to the machine without adding additional weight.
Our design and engineering team went to work, removing the spreader and replacing it with a custom-made attachment that would allow the coil tong to connect to the boom of the Reach Stacker while also handling the load requirements.
