Achievements

l MH keep on going development AC thyristor drives (Thyromat) suitable for steel-making environment with the ambient temperature over 60since 1970’s.

l Up to the year 2016, more than 12,000 units of Thyromats are driving on cranes in various industries over the world.

l In China, over 110 large-scaled steel works and 90 customers in other fields are using Thyromat drives and systems.

l In UK, South Africa, main metallurgy and steel works are using MH products.

l Thyromat-10BCC 2500A as one compact biggest motor drive was invented by MH, and unit put into service on 280t Ladle Crane for Yanshan Iron and Steel Co., Ltd in year 2012. In 2016, first Thyromat-10BCC 3000A drive was launched to the market.

l On 500t Hot Metal Cranes at TATA Steel, Talbot Port, Thyromat system has been working well since hand-over in 2004.

l With an international R&D team, we developed MH-SCADA configuration platform software of new generation: Visualization, Data Analysis, Controls.

l Based on MH-SCADA, smart controlling and managing system for State Grain Reserves has been put into service since 2014.

l MHCIMS (MH Crane Information Management System), from on-crane local application to networking system, has been successfully developed & put into service on customers’ sites. Kept ongoing development and growing demand for MHCIMS make the system value added continuously.

l MHCIMS has been validated by large crane safety monitoring and management system test. This test is held by General Administration of Quality Supervision and Work Safety of the People’s Republic of China, which aims to enhance the safety level of large cranes’ operations.

l September 2016, based on high level development platform, our EMS (Energy Management System), from control layer to top management layer, has been put into service in a high speed train manufacturer.
