When The Industrial Premium Group needed a robust rotating crane hook for its client Canam Group, they called on Caldwell. The Canam Group, operator of 12 plants in Canada and the United States, had been using overhead cranes and a C-Hook to move steel coils as part of their metal fabrication processes for years. And while the C-Hook was working, the company realized that a motorized hook would help minimize safety risks and improve productivity.
After researching multiple options, Premium chose the Caldwell motorized rotating hook. With a 360-degree rotating range, flexible speed, a 25-ton capacity, and easy integration with existing Stahl Crane products, the Model 250 was the perfect answer.
“Caldwell’s engineering team helped us design the right solution for our client, delivering a heavy-duty capacity for heavy-duty requirements,” said Marc-André Martineau, Premium’s sales and project director.
This first project was such a success that Canam Group has decided to use this solution in two other Canam plants in Canada.
