Loading steel scrap and alloy
The sound of steel and alloy scrap being loaded.
The grab bucket can be used for lifting and loading any type of scrap steel, but in particular is good for lifting long round bars and wide flats. In addition, the magnet lifting plate is used for the selection of specifically magnetic material.
In the melt shop, the scrap steel and alloys are with the help of either the magnet lifting plate or hydraulic grab bucket loaded into large buckets (baskets).
