your investment


The MVA-TC Hot Metal Crucible Manipulator is the ideal tool to transport hot metal crucibles. Its compact design and central articulation allow easy manoeuvring in tight corners. The MVA-TC is built based on the Mecfor MVA35. Its lifting and pouring capacity ranges from 13,600 kg to 15,800 kg (30,000 to 35,000 lb.). Its sturdy construction, designed to resist heat, magnetic fields, and pot lines' dusty and harsh environment, will ensure the operator's comfort and maximize your dollar/hour operation ratio.

The Mecfor team of experts can help you put together a compelling business case, and lay out the financial justification for your MTA/MTC investment. They will also be happy to provide references from satisfied customers.

Hydraulic and electrical power at your fingertips

The MVA-TC is powered by a diesel engine coupled to a hydrostatic transmission, offering constant torque with unlimited speed variation on two of the four wheels. The vehicle is built around a central articulation that offers the operator greater flexibility when carrying loads or performing precise furnace operations like loading, tending or cleaning. The comfortable operator's environment offers unmatched visibility, safety features, and state-of-the-art controls to maximize productivity. The vehicle is also equipped with a Sauer-Danfoss Plus+1 controller that gathers and stores vital operational and diagnostic information.

MVA-TC vehicles are built with Mecfor's "QuicKonnect" system, designed to support its hydraulically powered modular tools.
