Project:

Relocation of CNC machinery from first floor to ground floor as part of a production restructure.

Summary:

The relocation process commenced with the removal of motors and guards prior to jacking the machinery onto machine moving skates and positioning adjacent to the floor opening on the first floor.

A Versa-Lift 25/35 fork truck was positioned on the ground floor beneath the aperture and the forks were raised through the opening to first floor level.

The machines were each skated onto the forks and lowered through the opening to the ground floor. They were then moved through the factory to a new position where they were reassembled, bolted down and levelled.

Challenges on this project came as a result of the restricted access between the floors. The dimensions of the floor opening were very close to those of the machines and necessitated extreme precision in handling and excellent communication between personnel.

The project was completed successfully with minimal disruption to ongoing production.
