New Facility Dedicated to Surface Quality of Cranes
The David Round Co., Streetsboro, Ohio, has opened a new manufacturing facility dedicated solely to the surface quality of its stainless steel jib crane products.
The new in-house metal treatment center provides a glass bead finish for the structural components of clean room jib cranes made by David Round. These smoother, more hygienic surfaces are free of weld scars and other imperfections, distinguishing them from cranes with conventional mill finishes, the company said.
"This advancement in surface quality is just the latest in a series of design innovations that has advanced the state-of-the-art in pharmaceutical and food processing material handling," said Matt Downing, director of sales and marketing and stainless steel product line manager. "We’ve listened closely to our customers in the pharmaceutical and food industries, and have responded with a superior surface finish for clean room use."
The David Round Ruger Industries division manufactures stainless steel floor cranes and other stainless steel portable lifting equipment.
