SHI Group contributes to improving transport efficiency for steel products
Lifting magnets are currently essential for the transport of steel products and iron scrap at steel mills, shipbuilding yards, and metal recycling plants. Lifting magnets are capable of hoisting and transporting the required number of steel sheets in one operation, thereby significantly improving work efficiency. Automation is also possible by utilizing computer controls, which reduces labor as well.
The SHI Group was the first in Japan to manufacture a lifting magnet back in 1928 and since then, various lifting magnets have been developed to meet the requirements of our customers. Other than steel mills and shipbuilding yards, our lifting magnets are used widely in plants that handle steel and iron across Japan today and they receive highly favorable evaluations.
The SHI Group is the manufacturer with the largest market share in Japan, with organizations performing development through to after sales services, in order to cater to our customer's requirements.
The manufacturing site is located in Niihama City, in Ehime Prefecture, while nationwide support is provided in Japan from service sites in Tokyo and Osaka.
