Metallurgy / Iron and steel
ATV leverages all its experience to serve players in the field of iron and steel and metallurgy
Hot and heavy loads...
Metal industries and particularly the iron and steel industry implement processes involving the handling of very heavy loads and ladles of liquid metal which demand the use of fail-safe brakes, on fast lift shaft and on slow shaft, most often directly on a disc secured to the winch.
Extensive experience in the field...
ATV Brakes has extensive experience in this field and offers a range perfectly tailored to this sector. The electromagnetic brakes in the Electromagnetic Safety range allow operation on hot overhead cranes (loading, casting, slag), where it is not uncommon to see flames crossing the overhead crane. The steel design gives these brakes increased resistance to dust, particularly by adding air pots.
Dedicated technological solutions!
For heavy steelworks overhead cranes with winches subjected to intense mechanical and thermal stress, ATV Brakes offers a full range of floating hydraulic calipers. These calipers move with the disc and therefore operate with a reduced clearance, which gives them an optimal reaction time while avoiding over-sized calipers and any wear of the pads. With between 9 and 400KN of restraint, these calipers have won over a large number of European sites.
Products and services...
The working conditions of ATV products in the iron and steel industry make regular maintenance a requirement.
Our factory in Rethel handles complete overhaul operations in the workshop on the brakes that are returned to us.
Dismantled, appraised, repainted and renovated, these brakes leave the factory for many more years of service to secure your facilities.
