Two ceramic presses EVO relocated and installed in Yekaterinburg

Two presses EVO 3608/1800 SITI unloaded, relocated into the workshop and set into the pit

In September 2017 on request from Zavod keramicheskikh izdely (Ceramic plant, PAO) our Company unloaded two ceramic presses EVO 3608/1800 SITI from low loaders, relocated them into the workshop, tipped into vertical position and set them into the pit. Mass of one machinery unit is 65,000 kg.

Project operations

Our engineers and assembly workers executed the following operations within the framework of this project:

  • Elaboration of the Work Production Plan.
  • Installation of the GP125 gantry system.
  • Installation of the GP500 gantry system.
  • Press unloading from low loaders.
  • Press relocation into the workshop to the installation site.
  • 90-degree turn of the presses.
  • Press tipping into vertical position.
  • Press setting into the pit on a foundation.
  • Press leveling.

Rigging operations

Low loaders with the machinery could not enter the workshop, therefore our specialists unloaded the presses with the help of the GP125 gantry system outside the workshop at the platform in front of it. Then the presses were relocated into the workshop by means of special vehicles.   By means of the GP500 gantry system they were relocated and turned to 90 degrees inside the workshop. Then they were tipped into vertical position and set on a foundation.

Machinery involved at the site

Our specialists operated own hydraulic gantries and 120-ton-capacity rigging trolleys. Deployment of the GP500 gantry system made it possible to accomplish all the operations inside the workshop in a safe way, including press tipping.

Peculiarities of the operations at the site

During relocation and installation of the press machinery our specialists faced the following challenges:

  • Size of the area in front of the workshop gates insufficient for low loaders’ maneuvering.
  • Small size of the area inside the workshop insufficient for fulfillment of all the required operations with the presses.
  • The problem of the machinery allocation at the installation site caused by small size of the area.

The works were performed at an operating manufacturing facility. The operation areas were taped off. The machinery underwent thorough calibration check before rigging operations. The works were supervised by an OEM engineer whose shift costs considerable money.

Our specialists had to respond quickly to any alterations of the timelines concerning delivery of the presses for unloading. The works inside the workshop were accomplished in confined space, and our specialists had to act swiftly. 4 specialists were involved in the operations at the site. Their experience and skills allowed them to accomplish the tasks set forward by the Customer quickly, successfully and within the prescribed time limits.

How safety precautions and low cost were achieved

Our engineers developed quite complicated Work Production Plan that described in details possible allocation of the machinery required for safe and well-timed execution of the works.

To relocate the presses to the workshop we engaged special vehicles, i.e. our own modular trailer with pivoting wheels.  To optimize allocation and to fulfill all the required operations with the presses, including their tipping, a 500-ton-capacity gantry system was engaged. The engagement of the gantry system made it possible to perform rigging operations, as no truck crane with required load capacity could enter the premises and be deployed there.

Our Company has considerable expertise in assembling presses of different types, produced by different manufacturers. Over 15 years of work we have installed and assembled more than 70 presses in different industrial sectors.

In our Company you can order free cost calculation for relocation, installation and assembly of the presses and machines, as well as of any other technological machinery. To do so, fill in a short form on-line at our web-site or call us (see phone numbers in section Contacts).

SACMI press body replaced in Samara

Our specialists (100 TONN MONTAZH) implemented a complicated project of SACMI press body replacement (Italy) at Samarsky Stroyfarfor in July 2016. Confined condition of the operating plant did not make the implementation of the project easier. Dismantling of the old press body and installation of a new body were performed with the use of a 125-ton hydraulic gantry system. The mass of the press is 56 tons.

Plate with hydraulic press cylinder piston dismantled, shifted and mounted in Snezhinsk (Chelyabinskaya Oblast)

In September 2015 our Company dismantled the plate with cylinder piston of hydraulic press SACMI PH4800, shifted it to the repair site and then shifted it and mounted it onto the press at the production site of ceramic plant ZKS (OOO) in Snezhinsk (Chelyabinskaya Oblast).

A gantry system with special-purpose tools was used for the operations in a very confined space. The works were divided into two stages (dismantling and assembling operations) and carried out under immediate control of a supervisor from the press OEM (SACMI, Italy). The project was accomplished within 8 days instead of scheduled 15 days. On completion of repair works, the press was put into service.

Press SACMI loaded, transported, turned over and installed in Yekaterinburg

In April 2014 our Company loaded press SACMI РН3800 (Italy) from a railway transporter on to a modular trailer, transported it into a production workshop, unloaded from the modular trailer, turned it into its vertical position, set on a foundation (with the basic part being leveled), and secured it at the production site of Zavod keramicheskikh izdely (Ceramic plant, OAO), Yekaterinburg.

Unique engineering solutions enabled simultaneous operation of two gantry systems with different capacities, which made it possible to mount the press in a confined space.

Unloading and assembling of press SACMI PH6500 for “Kompany “Piastrella”, CJSC

In September 2011 our company executed a scope of rigging and assembling in town of Polevskoy, Sverdlovsk region, at production sites of “Kompany “Piastrella”, CJSC (Company for ceramic granite production).

100tonn-service Company engineers unloaded hydraulic press SACMI PH6500 foundation slab (weight – 106tons) and cylinder (weight – 45 tons) from the railway truck and loaded them on automobile trucks. During the next work stage the press units were unloaded inside the workshop, moved and assembled on the basement and supporting structure. A unique operation of turning the press SACMI PH6500 foundation slab into mounting (vertical) position has been carried out. The foundation slab height is 7.5meters.

Gantry systems GP1100H and GP125H have been used for works execution. The works were accomplished within the minimum tight deadlines and ahead of production schedule (3 working days) in accordance with the equipment manufacture standards and regulations.
