Pintsch Bubenzer USA products are designed to operate in high ambient temperatures and dust-filled air environmental conditions associated with the processing of steel. This environment places tough demands on the drive systems and brakes used in steel making facilities. Hot metal, semi-automated rolling mill and overhead loading cranes require the most reliable, maintenance-friendly braking systems available.

The engineers and designers at PINTSCH BUBENZER possess decades of experience on such applications for the steel industry and know the problem zones and pitfalls.
