Acier Picard, a distributor for steel, aluminum and other metals, wanted expand their factory located in Levis and we worked with them to execute their project.
Their warehouse has several bays, where many Premium overhead cranes are installed. In the 2 outer bays, we manufactured and installed four 2 x 5 tons cranes with weather-resistant paint, LED lights and protective roofs.
Their project was a challenge for us because it was a first for Premium Industrial Group. A crane with a magnet lifting system was installed in one of the inner bays, for the handling of steel plates. It is a unique solution designed specifically for Acier Picard’s needs. By means of 4 magnets connected by an adjustable spreader beam, our customer can now move steel plates with greater ease. This project was realized with GRYB, the magnet supplier.
In addition, since safety is an important issue at Acier Picard, we have developed and installed a zone to isolate and lock out cranes without stopping all equipment on the same runway. Workers can therefore safely perform maintenance.
Premium Industrial Group is renowned for adapting to any special project and fulfilling the special requests of its customers!
