Cross Transport with Lift-and-Carry System

Cross Transport with Lift-and-Carry System

  • For enhanced material organisation and temporary storage of sheet metals
  • Hydraulic lifting beam and retractable transport beam with bi-directional capability
  • All lift and carry lines fitted with individual hydraulic units


By lightly raising the material using polyamide-coated rollers integrated into the roller conveyor, the traditional “steel on steel” noise from cross transporting profiles is significantly reduced. Transport technology in steel construction and steel trading will be revolutionized through this new system.

  • Fully-automatic control
  • Contributes to enhanced occupational safety and the protection of personnel and the environment
