Heavy-duty Hyster forklifts beat the heat at metal foundry application

16th July 2019

For more than 30 years, Hyster Europe has supplied specialist materials handling equipment that needs to withstand extreme temperatures to the Walter Hundhausen factory in Schwerte, Germany.

The facility produces cast iron elements and parts of the operation are known as the ‘Gates of Hell’ with shards of iron at a temperature of 1500 degrees celcius raining on to its lift trucks.

The Hyster® H16XM-9/12 to H18XM-7.5/9 range of Heavy Duty forklift trucks is engineered for maximum dependability even in these demanding applications.
