Nucor General Recycling

Description of the E-Crane

Nucor General Recycling installed a 700 Series E-Crane® for feeding auto bodies into a shredder at their Flowood, Mississippi facility near Jackson. The shredder was previously fed by older material handler which was replaced with the new E-Crane®.

E-Crane® engineers worked with Nucor to develop a turn-key solution for removing the old crane and erecting the E-Crane® in its place. The E-Crane® is mounted on a 4-legged pedestal, with custom stairways to accommodate the infrastructure that had previously been surrounding the old crane. Complete assembly and installation, including the tear-down of the original crane, took only two weeks. The E-Crane® became operational shortly after installation and is capable of feeding 2 to 3 auto bodies into the shredder per cycle.

Nucor is well satisfied with the successful installation and their newly updated operation.
