Caldwell distributor Simmers Crane Design & Services has recently supplied a range of specialized material handling equipment to Majestic Steel's new facility. The collaboration between Caldwell and Simmers Crane ensures efficient and precise handling of steel coils and sheets at the site, supporting Majestic Steel's expansion plans in the construction and manufacturing sectors.The equipment delivered includes nine coil grabs with a capacity of 60,000 lbs. each. These coil grabs feature a 'lock-out' limit switch to prevent accidental opening while the load is suspended and an anti-clamp touch plate that protects the coils during lifting operations. Additionally, two 20,000-lbs. capacity sheet lifters and five 60,000-lbs. capacity C-hooks were provided to facilitate various material handling tasks at the facility.The material handling equipment will be used in conjunction with 14 32.5-ton capacity double girder electric overhead traveling (EOT) cranes manufactured by OMi Crane Systems Inc. All the overhead lifting technology is operated remotely, ensuring optimal control and safety during operations. The facility, equipped with state-of-the-art processing equipment, is expected to be fully operational later this year.Devon Poling, assistant branch manager and sales engineer at Simmers Crane, highlighted the telescoping feature of the coil grabs, which allows for handling coils of different diameters and widths. This versatility enables the equipment to be used across multiple cranes throughout the facility. Despite the complexities involved in the project, including intensive work and tight manufacturing timelines, all parties involved successfully met the challenges and delivered the equipment on time.Majestic Steel, with nine locations across the United States, specializes in stocking and processing prime flat rolled steel for various industries, including construction, HVAC, agriculture, and transportation. The new facility in Hickman, Arkansas, aims to provide optimized supply chain solutions to customers in the southern part of the country. Larry Seafler, facility supervisor at Majestic Steel, expressed excitement about the completion of the Arkansas facility, highlighting its strategic position for serving customers in the growing construction and manufacturing markets.
