Custom Solutions

Developing Honestly Better solutions to big machine challenges

L&H Industrial can help you develop a solution to any big machine challenge that comes your way, and we’ll build it and deliver it to your site. With five-decades of experience providing field support for heavy industrial machinery, engineers specialized in advanced machine design and engineering, and facilities for custom manufacturing second to none, L&H is ready.

Our cross-industry experience keeps L&H always thinking about better big-picture solutions to heavy equipment challenges. We look beyond uptime. It’s our goal to improve lifetime machine performance and total cost of ownership. And if it turns out the answer is to develop and build a completely new machine or assembly, we can do that too.

At L&H we’re always looking for new ways to make heavy equipment Honestly Better.

L&H innovation in action

NASA Crawler-Transporter 2

Retrofitting a one-of-a-kind machine: the NASA Crawler-Transporter 2

When NASA needed improvements on the massive crawler used to transport spacecraft to the launch site, L&H drew on decades of experience improving industrial undercarriages to manufacture, machine, and install more than 1,300 parts with absolute precision. Retrofitting and upgrading the largest surface transport system on planet Earth—not your average off-the-shelf operation. That’s exactly the kind of project we like.

Building better tools for the job: the L&H lift system for electric rope shovels

If you want to improve an assembly or machine for a specific job—or even develop an entirely new machine—our specialized Design & Engineering team is ready to help.

Here’s an example from inside L&H. To better equip L&H field services crews working in the mining industry, L&H developed our own 1,400-ton capacity hydraulic lift system for more safely and quickly undecking electric rope shovels. The multi-point lift system, which requires no major shovel disassembly, facilitates safe, easy access for shovel maintenance and undercarriage replacements because workers can lock the lift from 5-10 feet above the ground to the bottom of the rev frame.


Overhauling large-scale industrial equipment: the bucket wheel excavator

One of our largest total-machine overhauls ever, L&H used advance re-engineering and precision manufacturing to completely rebuild and update the ladder boom, mast, gantry, discharge booms, main frames, side frames, and car body of an outdated taconite bucket wheel.
