Tending a melting and holding furnace (dedrossing, furnace cleaning, metal mixing, charging alloys, etc.) requires precision and movement control. Too often this is carried out manually or by a long beam attached to a forklift. This results in damage to furnace lining, reduced lifetime of refractory, steel pollution in the final product, metal spillage, heat loss and unsafe situations in front of the furnace. Hencon offers a safe and state-of-the-art furnace tending vehicle developed with operator assisting technology. Knowing that operators are important for the eff iciency and success of the productionprocess, their feedback has been taken into account in the design of the cabin and vehicle.
For years Hencon has offered maintenance service on site at several large smelters around the world. The lessons learned during these years have been used in the designs of all Hencon solutions. Hencon provides an all-inclusive maintenance and support plan. This support plan offers uptime guarantees of up to 99% for the next 15 years.
