French metal framework manufacturer Waltefaugle has enlisted a pair of double rail box cranes to aid production in its new workshop in Dampierre sur Salon, France.

Waltefaugle specialises in metal frame buildings and produces over 13,500t of metal frame annually, equating to 400,000 sq m of building. The new workshop will be used to fabricate inertia beams, which are used in buildings where extra floor space is required, Waltefaugle said.

The workshop has two major machines. One cuts 2 x 14m sheets of metal, with the first crane handling these sheets and the cut parts. The second crane handles the final welded reconstituted beams. The two workstations are 40m apart and work simultaneously.

Somiram, a member of the Verlinde Europont network, supplied the 10t and 12.5t capacity box cranes. The cranes are 7m high and span around 21m. They are equipped with radio controlled Verlinde Eurobloc VT electric cable hoists that can be operated from the same control. Each hoist is equipped with a spreader with suction cup grips for handling sheet metal and beams.

In order to maximise the working span of the hoists, the hoist trolley hook crossbeams were modified to allow the steering trolley to travel the full length of the boxes. This modification allowed Somiram to install the hoists inside the boxes and permit operation in the approach to the workshop pillars.
