Strenx Enables Innovative Crane Solution
This is the beauty of Swedish Steel. Our Strenx Performance Steel helped Gary Douglas Engineers Ltd to install New Zealand's largest truck-mounted Palfinger on this Hino 10x4 tractor unit for Tom Ryan Cartage Ltd.
Strenx steel combined with our high precision cutting and forming capability enabled Gary Douglas Engineers to create an innovative box-style crane subframe. Strenx steel has perfect qualities for this role: extreme bending resistance for huge crane loadings of up to 26t and extreme torsion resistance for loads extended up to 31m out to the side.
We cut profiles up to 9m in length for the subframe comprising single-piece top, bottom and side plates, alleviating the need for additional mounting plates and potential cracking issues. Strenx is also very workshop friendly requiring minimal weld preheat for quick fabrication.
Working in extreme conditions calls for extreme materials and know how. Real Steel makes top-end steel solutions that work harder, like you.
