Anvil has the fastest lead times in the industry. Anvil designs all of its buckets and grapples around a concept of standard parts. Components are designed around product families. This system allows Anvil to keep virtually every part and component in stock. A grapple typically ships in 1-2 weeks from the time of order, a bucket in 2-3 weeks. Most parts are shipped out either the same day or the next day from the time of order.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Every part in every bucket and grapple is rigorously tested in a state of the art Finite Element Analysis (FEA) computer program. This FEA software tests stresses and finds weak areas in design before any piece of steel is cut. It also identifies and helps eliminate unnecessary weight. Anvil combines this technology with over 100 years of design and knowledge for the best designed, most reliable grabs in the market.
Anvil is consistently on the forefront of bucket and grapple design and innovation. This is demonstrated through the patents which have been awarded to us. An example of this innovation is our patented cluster sheaves, which increases cable life for customers up to 3 times on cable grabs. Anvil currently has two new innovative patents pending.
This patent is on the improvement of the Fairlead design used in most cable buckets and grapples today. This design has increased cable life for Anvil customers up to 3 times over standard configurations, saving customers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Anvil has been able to double our cable life resulting in savings of over $125,000.00 per year on the cable alone.” – Darryl S., Chevron
Sealed Lip - Patent Pending
Anvil currently has a Patent Pending on an improved bolt on sealed lip design.
Grab Management Application - Patent Pending
Anvil currently has a Patent Pending on a Grab Management application. This application will allow customers to remotely monitor and manage thier bucket or grapple. This application will monitor vital statistics of the grab and alert the user if any critical situation arises.
Anvil practices LEAN manufacturing throughout its organization. LEAN improves efficiencies and reduces waste in the manufacturing process. LEAN reduces cost and improves quality in every product.
Anvil Attachments is located about 20 minutes north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This facility is where every bucket and grapple is designed; where every piece of steel is cut, bent, fitted, welded, assembled and tested. Every product from Anvil Attachments is entirely “MADE IN THE USA”.
