A manufacturer of train components with on-site assembly operations required a motorised crane system for safe and easy management of large, heavy parts and materials during the process.
It was very important that the customer didn't lose any production time so the installation was planned for a weekend to ensure minimal disruption to their operations.
Our team of lifting engineers worked around the clock to ensure the installation and testing was completed during the designated weekend, leaving enough time for some user training before the system became operational on the Monday morning.
Our client is a manufacturer and assembler of components for trains who required a robust crane system for their production facility. We worked with the client to understand their requirements and commission, supply and install a listing solution best suited to their operation and assist in optimising productivity.
The system consists of a free standing steel structure accommodating 2 x 1,000kg underslung cranes, which have been fitted with dual speed VL electric chain hoists providing variable speed cross and long travel motions.
The crane system covered an area of 9.5 metres by 8 metres, with a lifting height of 3 metres.
Longitudinal travel of the crane was achieved using our PRV series articulated power trolleys, so that the maximum hook travel approaches could be achieved to give the customer the best possible crane coverage.
The crane system was designed, manufactured and installed over a weekend, so there was no loss of production for the customer.
"For this particular project the client required minimal interruption to their operation and to accommodate this our lifting engineers completed installation and testing within their production facility over the course of a weekend. We work hard to provide our clients with the best possible service to meet their needs and this comes in different forms, whether it's designing a bespoke solution or working outside of normal hours, our teams rise to the occasion and deliver excellent results for our clients."
