Aluminium die cast machines
The scope of work was to offload from a critical area of production and manoeuvre through into the main die cast machine area. Allelys then had to offload for a second time and install the units into their final position.
Two of the installations included a fixed plate weighing 57te and a moving plate weighing 87te. The components were delivered to site from Europe on a multi axle transport which needed to be offloaded inside. Due to the space restrictions within the building, Allelys designed a solution that required the use of two hydraulic lifting gantries.
A 450te lift and lock system was used to tranship the components from the transport onto a 6 axle SPMT. The pieces were then manoeuvred through gangways and stanchions to the second lift system, which was a 900te capacity system with side shift technology.
Precision planning and co-ordination
Both the moving plate and the fixed plate were then lifted into position on a pre levelled base. The team completed the tranship, transport and installation of the moving plate first and then repeated the process with the fixed plate.
Due to the size and description of vehicles in the delivery schedule and to maintain a smooth delivery, extensive planning and co-ordination was required with police, road closures and production departments to complete this project successfully.
