Case Study: Replacement of damaged Steel Crane Wheels
Barlow Technology is extremely proud of over 40 years experience in the steel industry with a speciality in the supply of forged steel crane wheels to UK Ports and Harbours.

A recent visit to a new client, highlighted a problem with steel crane wheels, previously installed by another supplier.

We identified the problem and offered a solution….

The crane wheel flanges were displaying extreme wear, not in-line with age, with the rate of erosion indicating an issue with the wheel specifics and a resultant shortening of the predicted and expected lifespan of the product.

Upon closer inspection, the wheels were proved to be unsuited for purpose and the potentially damaging forces involved in this particular type of heavy industrial application.

Safety in Automation for Smart Ports
With an increasing number of terminals worldwide considered ‘fully automated’, the number is set to rise as the industry moves to unmanned cranes, in pursuit of improved efficiency.

Specialist supplier of bespoke equipment to the ports and harbours industry for over 40 years, Barlow Technology has experienced a recent growth in demand for MONITORING SYSTEMS FOR INDUSTRIAL BRAKES, linked to automation.

Sales Director Richard Barlow says; “With the recent increase in fully automated terminals, it is imperative for safety that certain conditions can be monitored remotely, such as brake pad wear, Pad temperature, reserve stroke monitoring and Brake Force. The CMB-3 Monitoring System from Pintsch Bubenzer allows all of these conditions to be monitored.”

As the sole UK supplier for Pintsch Bubenzer products; Barlow’s clients recognise the value in quality, as Pintsch Bubenzer manufacture some of the best industrial braking systems in the world.
