Robust and technically sophisticated deslagging machines and stoking machines

Intensively used ladles in steel and raw iron plants as well as smelting furnaces in the aluminium industry require regular, thorough deslagging using special deslagging machines to maintain their reliability and functionality. Here the main focus is on deslagging with the lowest possible loss. Our especially designed deslagging machines are designed to avoid the loss of raw iron. Manufactured according to the state of the art, our high quality deslagging machines can be adapted to every industry application as though they were tailor-made. At Holtmann you always get a deslagging machine configured to meet your individual requirements. In addition to technically sophisticated quality and robustness, flexibility and configurability are the strengths of our deslagging machines and stoking machines. Our stoking machines are highly efficient for cleaning and feeding electric melting furnaces. Customers around the world value the high quality and safety standards of stoking machines made by Holtmann. You too can benefit from our robust deslagging machines and our especially protected stoking machines!

Multifunctional break-out machines and ladle milling machines

Robust break-out machines and ladle milling machines especially for the aluminium and raw iron industry are supporting pillars of our business. As a specialist supplier for vehicle construction and mechanical engineering, we are internationally active and supply our robust, highly modern and multifunctional machines and accessories worldwide. Break-out machines are essential for reliably removing refractory materials and slag in the modern steel and raw iron industry, for example from electric furnaces as well as raw iron and steel ladles. With our global network, we are among the largest suppliers in the market for this demanding segment, and have been working closely in trusting relationships with major customers such as Siemens VAI and Thyssen Krupp Steel for years. Together with RHI from Vienna, we are also among the pioneers in the development of innovative ladle milling machines. Even the toughest requirements for cleaning ladles with a monolithic lining in steelworks can be met reliably with our robust ladle milling machines. Our international customers highly appreciate the sophisticated quality of our ladle milling machines and order these highly specialised products worldwide. Convince yourself of the quality of our break-out machines and ladle milling machines, and order the machines of your choice from us!

Telescoping excavators with a highly modern boom system for the most challenging tasks

Aside from deslagging machines and break-out machines, telescoping excavators are an important part of our product range. We have therefore developed highly modern boom systems in cooperation with STS, meeting even the most challenging requirements. These include for example the milling of blast furnace runners, the removal of deposits and porous plugs, and the cleaning of converters. Now such work can be easily carried out with a telescoping excavator instead of a hydraulic excavator. Our telescoping excavators are equipped with Caterpillar, Liebherr or our own carriers.

For telescoping excavators, break-out machines and ladle milling machines, stoking machines and deslagging machines, you are in the best hands with Holtmann.
