Rack transport systems

Transport of racks and long objects

Sections, tubes, bars or other long objects are transported in racks – stacked, or even individual ones – with the help of special conveyor systems for long objects. The product range includes equipment for aluminium extrusion plants as well as for the steel and plastics industries. With logistics projects at almost every major European extrusion plant, today H+H is the market leader in this sector.

  • At H+H Herrmann + Hieber the basis for any project is a detailed material flow plan, which also allows for future developments.
  • For the implementation of tailor-made system solutions, H+H has tried and tested components: section stackers, chain conveyors, lifting chain conveyors, turntable units, shuttles (moving trolleys) and roller tracks.
  • In most cases an automatic crane (process crane) is involved in the transport chain; this ensures rapid transport between two positions and can move billets into and out of a billet store.
  • For unusual or new tasks, H+H develops innovative solutions specially designed to suit the application.
