Peiner's unique grabs can deal with a huge array of materials and products such as cement, iron ores, fertilizers, coke, refuse and scrap. Our years of experience in the overall designing process and in manufacturing high quality products helps to allow our client's be given the proven technology their diverse applications require.
Within the US marketplace, SMAG/Peiner has been represented by Peiner USA, Inc. Different industries such as Scrap Handling, Steel Mills, Waste to Energy, Bulk Transfer Facilities as well as many other material handling facilities are presently relying on our buckets and grabs to do their tasks.
The design philosophy at Peiner has always revolved around providing grabs which handle the largest volume of material versus grab dead weight. The regular handling ratio for Peiner buckets and grabs is around 60/40, meaning material dead weight of 60 percent vs. grab dead weight of 40 percent. This means transporting more quantities of supplies faster. The wear and tear on the crane structure and its related parts is less. Through a combination of high quality materials and innovative design with manufacturing, the weight ration that is desired is attained.
Grab sizes will range from 1 cubic yard or less to more than 50 cubic yards in order to meet the needs of the customer. In addition, Peiner USA Inc. provides a complete spare parts facility and service facility for the units purchased within the United States, along with the addition of brand new buckets and grabs.
