New portal crane for heavy tools

At Hjerno we are increasingly handling large and heavy tools – sometimes up to five to seven tonnes.

The reason being that many tools are getting more and more complicated as a result of many cavities and advanced technique. The tools are still very compact, but often they end up weighing several tonnes.

That is why we have invested in a portal crane, which, due to a lifting capacity of 6.3 tonnes, can handle that kind of heavy tools.

"This means that in the future we can handle tools of up to 12 tonnes, if we lift the two form halves individually," explains managing director Aage Agergaard.

Customised for Hjerno
The new crane is customised for Hjerno Tool Factory’s production and is significantly larger than our other portal cranes.

"It is a substantial investment considering that it is“only” supposed to handle heavy tools, but it is a necessary one of its kind in order to future-proof our production," says Aage Agergaard.
