Fine Handling participates in Blech india 2017 – India’s leading Exhibition on sheet metal energy.
Fine Handling has an extensive experience in developing innovative handling solutions for a variety of industries including Automotive, Machine Tools, Heavy Engineering etc. Fine Handling has designed and supplied highly niche solutions to handle sheet metal plates, semi-finished sheet metal components and finished parts to these industries.
At Blech India, a leading exhibition for the sheet metal industry, Fine Handling will showcase its entire range of solutions to make handling safer, efficient and faster for the sheet metal industry.
Speaking on the participation at Blech India, Nilesh Karandikar of Fine Handling, says ‘Advanced handling solutions for sheet metal parts are common in developed world, but still haven’t become a norm in India. Fine Handling offers world-class solution at an highly affordable price and thus proves to be an attractive option to shift from tackle-crane based handling of sheet metal plates and parts.’
Starting from vacuum lifters to highly innovative Elbow Lifts (a patent pending product from Fine Handling), Fine Handling’s solutions can handle sheets and components weighing from several kilos to 5 Tonnes.
