Copperloy Completes Custom Manufactured Material Handling Equipment Job for Mining Industry


Twinsburg, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2014 -- Unique Challenges Met by the Custom Manufacturing Team at Copperloy

Copperloy recently completed a custom manufacturing job for a mining and tunneling industry client who had a set of unique specifications and difficulties which other equipment, and other companies, had been unable to adequately solve. It's just the latest example of the excellence of Copperloy's custom fabrication and design services, and the high quality of its material handling equipment.

In this specific case, the client required large amounts of rebar to be utilized in the tunneling process. However, attempts at trucking or railing such large loads for installation proved to be inefficient, and a major challenge for the company's output and overall capabilities.

Copperloy was able to produce a unique heavy-duty steel pallet to handle this task. The engineering team at Copperloy coordinated with the client's own engineers to produce a special design for a 40,000 lb. capacity pallet, in both a 13-foot and 26-foot length. Not only that, but it was a custom design and build job that required the use of both a lift truck and crane

After working with Copperloy and their custom engineering team for this design and build, the mining company was able to quickly, efficiently and safely transport large quantities of rebar. This was a unique challenge presented to Copperloy and Copperloy is proud to have exceeded the company’s expectations.

With more than 50 years of experience with material handling equipment, this is one of many examples of Copperloy delivering a positive outcome in the face of seemingly long odds. Copperloy's custom design and build team utilizes a 70,000 square foot facility with the latest and best manufacturing and designing equipment to regularly provide robust, high quality equipment and solutions just like this.
