The long-established Ulm-based company KAMAG Transporttechnik GmbH recently delivered a total of 18 industrial lift transporters to Baoshan Iron & Steel Co. Ltd., more commonly-known as Baosteel, in Shanghai/China. In the challenging working conditions in the steelworks of this world, both the thirteen KAMAG 2107 HM2 industrial lift transporters complete with tilting system and top-mounted cab as well as the five KAMAG U2105 HM2 with cabs mounted below for driving under pallets are optimally prepared. The pendulum axles with hydraulic compensation always provide the necessary stability whereby the safety systems trigger an immediate alarm if there is a height difference of more than 60 mm.
With a tiltable payload of 100 t and featuring a comparatively low tare weight of just 50 t, the KAMAG 2107 HM2 complete with a top-mounted driver’s cab (Fig.) is one of the most powerful and efficient industrial lift transporters for the transshipment and handling of scrap metal or other bulk material. With 421 engine horse power and driven by reliable CATERPILLAR aggregates which have proved themselves over decades, the Baosteel versions provide an impressive climbing performance of 20 % and a traction force of 37 000 daN. Long material such as slabs or coils but also all types of pallet systems are the operational areas of the KAMAG U2105 HM2 with its driver’s cab mounted below. The five vehicles delivered to Baosteel score well a good maximum load / tare weight ratio (115 t: 35 t), a traction force of 35 000 daN and a maximum speed of 35 km/h when unloaded.
