There is a good bit of talk about the booming economic development in Brazil, and many large industries are looking to expand their manufacturing and business operations to this hot market. In combination with it's vast natural resources, Brazil could become the new business hub of the Southern hemisphere, and material handling equipment providers are finding opportunities there as well.

Why would someone build a 23 mile long conveyor system?  Well, this is just one example of the use of a custom designed conveyor system that offers both a huge cost savings and a positive impact on the environment. Vale, S.A., the second-largest metals and mining company in the world, is building just such a conveyor system in Brazil to transport iron ore. The 23-mile long conveyor system will replace 100 trucks, and reduce operating fuel costs by an estimated 77%.  

We here at MHS can design a custom conveyor system that can help you to achieve higher operating cost savings for your company, even if tight application and solution tolerances are required. Just visit us online to view examples of our work, or to request more information.

Phone books have been used in all types of magic tricks and feats of strength. Here we see where two phone books are used to lift a car with a crane. This feat is accomplished by using mechanical friction of the interleaving pages, making the bond so strong that it can lift an automobile. http://youtu.be/sGBKZO_sEfU

Be sure to see our website http://www.mhs-llc.com where our expert overhead material handling, crane, and hoist experts can help you design, develop  and deploy a system that is right for your application.

When you are moving an expensive boat, such as the one seen here, MHS-LLC.com would highly recommend an Inspect your all of your lifting equipment especially the slings/rigging. If not then having a great insurance policy is a must. http://youtu.be/-TRh6UAE8lI

http://youtu.be/FdCJzO3w7_M Although comical, except for the guys Mercedes the load fell on, this accident should help illustrate the importance of the proper hooks, slings, rigging are a very serious matter. To see the ASME inspection checklist for different types of slings see http://www.mhs-llc.com/lifting-slings. MHS the leader in material handling solutions and systems.
