Why APPI: One of the products manufactured by Federal-Mogul is high performance cylinder linings that are made in a complex manufacturing process.
This is how Omayra Hernández, a manufacturing engineer for TPR Federal-Mogul, describes the process and how the furnace chute positioning hoist fits into it.
“Your Columbia AC hoist is used to position a chute used to deliver additive materials into a furnace on one of our production lines. The chute is lowered when materials are being placed in the furnace and then lifted by the hoist to its stored position.
We are very happy with the performance of the unit and have recently ordered two additional Columbia HD1300 AC electric hoists to use in similar applications in other locations in our manufacturing facility.”
