📢 Project Update from our Member Europe Automotive Holding a.s.
A regular workday from EAH such as the day when they delivered the DLAP 1500 press and fully dismantle it and then relocated to it’s final new place. They have succesfully delivered for The Simpac company which is one of the greatest press-manufacturer company in South-Korea.
EAH Team successfully completed this move for SIMPAC, a Korean company that is a market leader in the South Korean forming technology sector and one of the world’s leading press manufacturers.
How to move a press
Thorough planning is essential before starting any such large-scale operation, which in this particular case took them 7 days. This was a really big project – 7 trucks were needed just to transport the necessary tools. First of all, the entire plant had to be dismantled, which was done by an Enerpac SL400 hydraulic gantry system with a total load capacity of 400 tonnes. This gantry crane with hydraulic side shifts is ideal for lifting machinery and heavy loads in areas with limited handling capacity, such as production halls and the like. In order to move the DLAP 1500 press to its new position, they had to disassemble it into parts weighing between 65 and 165 tonnes and load it onto a COMETTO transport chassis.
Transporting heavy parts requires special equipment
Transporting equipment such as the DLAP 1500 press cannot be done with conventional trucks, so they used a self-propelled SPMT COMETTO ECO 1000 chassis with a load capacity of up to 174 tonnes to transport all the heavy parts, including the massive 165-tonne press crown. They are the only company in the Czech Republic that owns this type of transport equipment. In the meantime, the construction company had already prepared the pit at the destination, into which the press was installed after transport.
The entire transfer of the baler took only ten days, and the subsequent installation at the destination was completed by five specialists within another week. For a project of this magnitude, this is a very short time, which was made possible in particular by the flawless coordination between SIMPAC, theirselves and the construction company that prepared the site for the installation.
No challenge is big enough for them.
After 17 days, the DLAP 1500 press was ready to carry out its demanding tasks at its new location, and they could celebrate another successful job and look forward to the challenges ahead.
A succesful move for EAH.🙌🙌
