Metal, iron and steel industries

We know the conditions that prevail inside a metallurgical plant: The materials, the hydraulics, the cables, and the electronic systems in our machines are optimally adapted to the extreme ambient temperatures.

Mining and tunnel construction

With its 360° rotating telescopic boom the UNIDACHS provides a high degree of flexibility and a wide range, yet is of a compact height. For example it enables you to safely contour even large cross-sections. The operator is always working at a safe distance.

Special heavy construction

When it comes to sinking shafts our telescopic booms prove their worth. They are able to extend vertically up to 27m down into the ground.


When demolishing objects that are hard to access, our machines, with their 360° rotating telescopic booms, are accurate even in very tight spaces.

Crawler Loader

TML’s steelworks crawler loaders are designed to work in extreme conditions inside iron and steel foundry hot zones. The machines, known by their brand name of Leonard, are designed to speedily clear hot slag from below the furnace for example. They are resistant to the prevailing extreme heat and the harsh ambient conditions. The shovel is built to cope with very hot materials and is of a particularly robust design.

Compared with crawler-mounted loaders used in less challenging conditions, all the mechanical components, the hydraulics and the entire control system are designed for operation in hot environments. The machines are extremely agile and are therefore ideal for use in tight spaces, for example underneath electric furnaces. The remote control option provides maximum safety for the machine operator. We supply the machine with or without an operator’s cab, as required.
