The off-highway industry employs massive machines, designed to dig trenches, holes or foundations and to lift, lower and transport loads. These might be mobile cranes, excavators, telehandlers and wheel loaders which because of their heavy-duty design require counterbalancing component. Counterweights play an integral role in the chassis configuration. They secure the safe performance of the entire machine and allow the vehicle to draw a trailer.
By balancing the weight, the counterweights applied on off-highway vehicles should prevent the machine from tipping over. Only cast iron components can meet precisely all specific requirements and deliver highly reliable quality. In terms of density, production cost, fragility, shaping and protection cast laminar iron has been recognized the most efficient solution.
FMGC, a subsidiary of Farinia Group is one of the leading suppliers of gray cast iron counterweights.
