Hohl Industrial Services was founded nearly 70 years ago as an equipment supplier for material handling. Since then, we have been involved in thousands of material handling projects in just about every industry for an incredible variety of customers and applications.

Design, fabrication, and installation of high end material handling systems

Today, we continue to provide solutions for unique and complex material handling challenges. Below is a brief snap shot of some of our projects.

Crane-Monorail System: Hohl Industrial Services was the choice of a leading aluminum foundry to modernize the plant’s material handling tasks. The goal was to eliminate ergonomic issues and reduce fork truck traffic. We designed, fabricated, and installed a system featuring eight overhead cranes and a large monorail. The cranes were interconnected with the monorail which allowed work in progress to be handled throughout all processes on a powered hoist/trolley.

Floor and Overhead Conveyor System: Hohl Industrial Services designed, built and installed a plant-wide material handling system for a tire manufacturer to increase efficiency and reduce ergonomic tasks. Tires are moved from the green state to curing, cleaning, multiple inspection stations, and finally to the warehouse. The system consists of custom elevators, overhead chain conveyors, and both belt and roller conveyors.

Special Screw and Enclosed Conveyors: Market demands required a carbon manufacturer to find ways to cut months from their plant expansion schedule. With no time for engineering or even layouts, Hohl Industrial Services was asked to jump in and provide a material handling solution. We visited the construction site, estimated the length of what the eight conveying devices would be, and determined how we would support and feed materials in and out. Five weeks later, the system was installed, including all feed and discharge chutes.

Weigh, Feed and Clean System: Hohl Industrial Services designed a unique system for a thermal processing manufacturer and shipped the entire system to Europe. We designed, built and delivered the system to support two high-temperature furnaces. The two unique systems weigh and evenly fill trays and transport them to the furnaces. After thermal processing, the system will elevate and empty the trays into product hoppers, clean the trays and return them to the filling area.

Walking Beam Conveyors: Hohl Industrial Services designed, fabricated, and installed a large walking beam conveyor for our steel mill client. Total weight of conveyor was in excess of 100 tons and was fed by robust roller conveyors with PLC’s to synchronize the infeed material.

Glass Recycling: For our beverage industry collecting and sorting customers, we have designed, fabricated, and installed high end material handling equipment with TPH measured in tonnages. Glass recycling is an abrasive media that requires robust designs to ensure equipment longevity. We offer turnkey solutions in this market segment and can assist in all phases of the storage, conveyance, separation, and sorting of glass media.
