In the US marketplace, SMAG/Peiner has been represented by Peiner USA, Inc. Various businesses such as Scrap Handling, Steel Mills, Waste to Energy, Bulk Transfer Facilities as well as numerous other material handling facilities are now utilizing our buckets and grabs to get their tasks done.
The design philosophy at Peiner has always revolved around delivering grabs which handle the biggest volume of material vs. grab dead weight. The regular handling ratio for Peiner buckets and grabs is approximately 60/40, meaning material dead weight of 60 percent versus grab dead weight of 40 percent. This translates into moving greater quantities of materials quicker. There is less wear and tear on the crane structure and its related components. Through a combination of manufacturing with innovative design and high quality materials, the weight ration which is desired is obtained.
To be able to suit the particular requirements of our clients' individual requirements, grab sizes vary from less than 1 cubic yard to over 50 cubic yards. Peiner USA Inc. additionally offers a complete service facility and spare parts facility for the models purchased within the USA, along with the addition of brand new buckets and grabs.
