Press assembled and unloaded, two turning machines shifted and set on a foundation in Yekaterinburg

    In the period from December 2014 to January 2015 our Company assembled a 4,000-kN hydraulic press and unloaded two NC turning machines, shifted them to the site and installed them at the production site of DB Novator (OAO) in Yekaterinburg.

    The press was assembled in a confined space of the production site by means of a gantry system. Rigging operations during shifting of the machines were carried out in conditions of low bearing capacity of the floor covering with crossed broad technical channels. A special horizontal shifting slide system was used to cope with complex flooring. In order not to interrupt the production process, the works were carried out at the weekends to ensure continuous operation of all the plant services. All the works were accomplished within the prescribed time limits without frustration of production plans.
