  • Intersig needed a suitable, robust attachment for the gentle double-deep loading and unloading of trucks with coils in different dimensions (inner diameter 550 - 930 mm). The handling of wire coils is in itself demanding, because coils should generally not be clamped on the outside to prevent their deformation. The attachment must therefore be designed to clamp the coils securely on the inside.

  • Presenting long-standing customer Intersig with a convincing, suitable attachment for its handling task at short notice.


  • Complex attachment consisting of two core elements – suitable for Linde H80D/1100:
    1. Hydraulic telescopic boom (1,250 - 2,250 mm)
    2. Hydraulic coil clamp that can be swung longitudinally and laterally with
      • Load capacity 5,500 kg at 1,500 mm LSP // 3,500 kg at 2,250 mm LCD
      • Clamp arms lengthwise in the direction of travel
      • Integrated mechanical coil re-clamping system
      • Limit switch for sensing the opening range


  • Short-notice presentation of a suitable solution for coil handling at Intersig --> long-standing customer convinced again

  • Tight schedule – contact, presentation of the solution, order, production, delivery, commissioning – adhered to

  • KAUP once again proves its competence in the implementation of the handling requirements of the metal industry
