Six new Liebherr LH 60 M Industry Litronic Material Handlers for voestalpine

Nenzing, Austria – voestalpine AG is a leading global technology and industrial goods group focusing on product and system solutions made from steel and other metals. Its voestalpine Stahl GmbH division operates a 100,000 m² scrapyard in Linz with annual throughput of around six million tonnes of steel. To achieve smooth 24/7 operation, the company has recently ordered six new Liebherr LH 60 M Industry Litronic Material Handlers.

Between 160 and 180 scrap charging boxes are loaded each day for the utilisation of the steelworks. In order to guarantee the five-shift operation runs smoothly 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and to supply the crude steel production with high-quality scrap material, optimal machine availability was a key purchasing criterion. Liebherr scored highly with the reliability of its material handlers and with excellent customer service.

Each LH 60 M Industry will achieve an average of 6000 operating hours each year, which is why efficiency was extremely important to voestalpine in its choice of machine. A particular challenge in the specification of the machine was that the grabs had to fit perfectly into the carriages being unloaded and at the same time have a high level of stability. As a result, Liebherr worked with voestalpine to develop and test a new bespoke five-tine grab for the LH 60 M Industry: the GMM 80-5 with a 0.9 m³ capacity and opening width of 2.34 m. The latter corresponds exactly to the width of a truck, meaning that the grab is also adapted to the carriage width.
