David Round Company opens metal treatment centre

Facility is dedicated to surface finish treatment of stainless steel cleanroom cranes

The David Round Company, a US manufacturer of cleanroom hoists, jib cranes and winches, has opened a new manufacturing facility dedicated to the surface quality of its stainless steel jib crane products.

The in-house metal treatment centre provides a glass bead finish for the structural components of clean room jib cranes made by the Streetsboro, Ohio-based firm. These smoother, more hygienic surfaces are free of weld scars and other imperfections, distinguishing them from cranes with conventional mill finishes.
