We went to our success for a long time, developing our facilities and creating the full technological cycle for manufacture of cranes meeting the world standards. Due to such approach, we can manufacture lifting & transportation equipment with a high quality and in time. Within the frame of creation of the full technological cycle used for manufacture of up-to-date cranes, we constructed a new assembly shop with total area of 4200 m2. The shop was equipped with access railway tracks, two new cranes of own make with load capacity of 15/20 t were installed on crane runways. New painting booth LIK43 was installed in the shop, shot-blasting chamber Gastol P2500 for cleaning sheets was purchased and put into pilot operation. The machine-tool fleet is being continuously renewed, new plasma cutting and gas cutting machines, new grinding machines, new span of crane shop were put into operation. All shops are equipped with advanced systems of gas-fired infrared heaters. The Chief Designer’s Department is provided with modern CAD system.
In 2014-2016, “Kharkov Lifting & Transportation Equipment Plant”, Ltd., faces the tasks of taking considerable segments in the market of casting metallurgical cranes with load capacity up to 320 t and in the market of electric hoists. The Design Department developed projects of metallurgical four-girder casting cranes with load capacity of 180 t, 225 t and 320 t.
