- 2019-07-31


Lloyds Somers, a division of Speedy Asset Services Ltd have recently completed the design, manufacture and supply of a 30Te Motorised Aluminium Slab Extractor / Downending Grab to a major South African Aluminium Processor. The grab utilises gravity to penetrate into the sides of the aluminium slab with the grip jaws locked hydraulically to ensure the slab is firmly held between the grip points during both the lifting and downending process.

Lloyds Somers have been at the forefront of design of slab, coil and sheet handling systems for over 80 years and remain one of the leading designers and suppliers of bespoke lifting equipment to the metal producing industries all around the globe.
