At Vallée, we deliver innovative solutions that meet the diverse needs and expectations of our customers.
With more than 50 years’ experience in mining, forestry, and the port industry, we have all the expertise required to build safe, modern, and robust attachments and industrial equipment.
With our customized equipment, you can optimize the productivity of your industrial operations.
Vallée products meet manufacturing standard ANSI B56.6. What’s more, we are CWB certified under standard CSA W41.1 (Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel).
Here are some of the projects our Engineering Department developed in the last years:
An industrial manipulator is essential when handling heavy loads on a production line. We were approached by a leader in the steel thermal-treatment industry who commissioned us to design an industrial manipulator that would remove a 10-m-diameter ring from a melting furnace, transport it three metres, and lower it into an immersion tank for a specific amount of time.
Double bucket System
A client asked us to create a double-bucket system for tree planting that would allow them to dig two holes simultaneously, thus doubling productivity. Vallée rose to the challenge and built a heavy-duty double bucket for excavators. Each bucket can handle up to 0.82 cu. yd. (under standard SAE J742) and is 61-centimeters (24-inch) wide, which equates to an overall width of 3.35 metres (132 in.).
Lifting Anchor for loaders
We were contracted to create a tool to transport a loader inside a ship. Our engineering team designed a lifting anchor that can be screwed onto a loader’s frame and secured to the roof. A ring on the anchor allows the vehicle to be lifted by crane onto the ship. The anchor is 3-meters (10 foot) long and can lift up to 22,680 kg (50,000 lb.).
Mining Cable Manipulator
Following an injury to a worker, a mining company called on Vallée’s engineers and designers to create and produce an arm that could safely pick up and move 7,000-volt shovel power cables without any ground personnel. In less than six weeks, we designed and built the Mining Cable Manipulator (MCM), which later won a prize for innovation at a workers’ compensation challenge.
