02. Heavy Assembly
02. Heavy Assembly
Tailored assembly concepts

Heavy assembly demands solutions that are as complex as they need to be and as simple as they need to be. In particular when it comes to the cross-transport of particularly heavy machine parts and lifting over-sized components, a tailored assembly concept is important – one that is a perfect combination of the right means of transport and lifting tools.

We not only have wide-ranging experience in working with heavy loads, we also have the equipment needed. Depending on the project and specification, as well as hydraulic lifting gear, pick & carry cranes and mobile cranes, we also use a wide range of cross-transport systems and heavy-duty rollers.

So we can transport and assemble machines and components for you up to 400 tonnes.

03. Foundation activities during machine assembly
03. Foundation activities during machine assembly
Professional knowledge as a solid foundation

Planning machine foundations demands specialist knowledge of structural design and build dynamics. As well as the impact of the subsequent operation of your plant on-site – perhaps because of vibrations, point loads and dynamic loads, the loads associated with lifting components must also be considered.

In order to respond precisely to your individual on-site situation, we always foster a close relationship with experienced planning offices right from the early stages of the project.

We see wide-ranging foundation work as a fixed aspect of assembling machines – including, for example, positional calibration, drilling core holes, pouring and under-pouring components and sealing and coating floors.

  • Far-sighted cost and time planning

04. Measuring technology

Exact measurements for precise manufacture

Calibration of machine installation parts

If you need to newly install or reassemble tooling machines, our measurement technicians can complete all your levelling work and geometric measurements. We carry out all adjustments and checks on geometric machine structures using the right measurement processes as prescribed by DIN and/or manufacturer instructions.

Measuring technology: Calibration for machinery set-up elements

Where necessary, we also install positioning parts such as guides, which make complex lifting in and out and stoppages due to hardening of the casting material unnecessary.This allows us to start with set-up and positioning as soon as the machine arrives, yielding you enormous time and cost savings.

By using state-of-the-art measuring and adjustment systems, we can calibrate the parts we set up to a positional accuracy of +/- 0.5 millimetre per axis (x, y, z).

We therefore offer fully developed and first-class heavy load logistics during company relocations.

  • Positioning, measurement and monitoring of machine geometry

  • Pre-installation of guide fields, clamping and foundation plates

  • Measurement of guide elements on tooling machines

  • Measurement of machine installation parts

  • Laser measurement of machine systems

  • State-of-the-art measurement and calibration systems
