Plastic Injection/Die Handling Industry
The Plastic Injection/Die Handling Industry involves handling high temperature and large-capacity loads often in dangerous and unpredictable environments. Each part of the plastic injection mold process demands precision and control in order to ensure the safety of its crane operators. Cranes in this industry are put under extreme stress and require the expertise at Shannahan Crane & Hoist to ensure the right equipment is being utilized and is inspected properly. Specific attention to hoist reeving is critical and typically requiring a double reeved wire rope providing true vertical lift. Typically, side pulling occurs when rotating loads. Drum configuration and rope fleet angle are to be carefully considered to ensure that wire ropes are pulled perpendicular with the drum grooving.
