FABRICATION FACILITY UPGRADE: METAL & STEEL FABRICATION AND MANUFACTURERS, NOTTINGHAM – JUNE 2014
A previously used 25 tonne S.W.L. twin girder Demag overhead travelling crane was overhauled, supplied & installed for our Nottingham based client to accommodate their expansion requirements.
The crane bridge length was modified to suit the existing gantry then cleaned and painted. The cross travel electrics were replaced for new equipment as is the standard of all our previously used cranes. All long travel and cross travel motors including the wire rope hoist were serviced and underwent a Report of Thorough Examination before leaving our workshop. A new control panel was made by our electricians to incorporate inverter driven cross and long travel motions for soft start and stop to allow for precision handling of loads. A radio remote control system was fitted to the crane to enable safe operation of the crane from any location within the facility. Due to the size of the crane and restrictions within the facility, a mobile crane was required to lift the overhead crane into position – this was done by temporarily removing panels from the roof.
