In April 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) loaded, relocated, unloaded and set to final position a 47-ton anvil block of the hammer in Bolshoy Istok, Sverdlovskaya Oblast. Our specialists also set it into the pit to final position. The 125-ton-capacity hydraulic gantry system GP125 allowed accomplishing all the works without roof dismantling in the shortest possible time within the premises of a new production site.
In February 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) relocated and installed HEINRICH GEORG TRM120/15/11-6h-3200 Straightening Machine for KUMZ (Kamensk-Uralsky Metallurgical Works, OAO) It was necessary to unpack this machinery and install it precisely on the embedded elements under strict control of the OEM’s representatives. A gantry system was urgently engaged for the works. It was fitted with special tools for high precision positioning of the machinery. The works were accomplished under normal conditions within the timelines prescribed by the Customer in accordance with the requirements of the installation supervisors. The mass of the straightening machine is 80 tonnes.
In January 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) accomplished installation works setting two MAG HÜLLER HILLE machining centres (FFG Werke-Drehmaschinen Concern, Germany) to final position within the premises of the Yaroslavsky electric machine-building plant. The vehicle with the machinery was too high for a low flyover in front of the workshop, so it was decided to carry out complex rigging operations with heavy (up to 29 tonnes) parts of the machinery before installation works. Preparation of the machinery for installation was a rather difficult task as the weather was extremely cold (up to minus 29 °С) during the New Year holidays. Good work planning and proper actions of the installation workers allowed us to relocate the machinery to the installation site quickly and accurately. Marking, anchoring and setting the machining centres to final position were performed under normal conditions and in due time.
In the period from December 2016 to January 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) performed site assembly of МНЛЗ-3 steel-casting machine (manufactured by NKMZ (PAO, Ukraine) in the oxygen-converter workshop for Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Company (MMK, OAO). This steel-casting machine manufactured by NKMZ (PAO) was purchased by MMK (OAO) to meet own needs, therefore, it attracted additional attention from technical and production service departments of the plant. Our experienced specialists supervised the works, so that they were accomplished in due time with the use of high-precision tools and special installation machinery. Gantry system was also used for operations, which assured joining all the parts of the machine with required tolerances. The steel-casting machine was assembled ahead of the originally approved schedule with due regard to the requirements set forth by the OEM.
In January 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) disassembled the foundations and installed 5 sections of the charging and receiving roller tables of Hot mill 2000 in slitting lines shop (LPTS-10) for MMK (Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Company, OAO). Our specialists worked 24 hours a day during scheduled repairs of metallurgical equipment in the LPTS-10 shop. All necessary resources (workers and equipment) were mobilized at the work site prior to starting the works. Our specialists faced different challenges during disassembly of the roller tables, unforeseen time expenditures during disassembly of the foundations and other subtleties while working 24 hours a day under continuous control from the Customer. Generally, the works were accomplished with high quality. Hot mill 2000 machinery has been successfully set to work in the LPTS-10 shop.

In August 2016, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) relocated a 78.5-tonne body of the К8344 press from Chelyabinsk to Naberezhnye Chelny, unloaded, shifted to the installation site, tipped it and set on a foundation. Unloading after relocation, shifting to the installation site, and more importantly tipping to vertical position and setting on a foundation were safely carried out by means of a 500-load-capacity hydraulic gantry system.
Within the period from July 11 to July 15, 2016 on request from RUSKOMTRANS Commercial Transport Plant, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) shifted a 170-ton ERMAKSAN bending press (manufactured by ERMAKSAN, Turkey), unloaded it and assembled it element-by-element. All the press parts were transported to the installation site with the help of a 40-ton-capacity rigging trolley. Due to the use of a 125-ton-capacity GP125 hydraulic gantry system the bending press assembly was completed ahead of the schedule approved by the equipment manufacturer.
Within the period from May, 12 to May 23, 2016 in Nadvoitsy, Republic of Karelia, our specialists unloaded a 26-ton melting furnace (Marconi, Italy) and three casting machines (32 tons each, Buhler Druckguss AG, Switzerland) from the loaders and set them to final position.
The works were rather difficult for execution due to the arrival of the equipment in breach of sequence stipulated in the Agreement, as well as due to the presence of a large number of technological channels (pits).
Nevertheless, all the works were accomplished on a professional level in due time.
In April 2016 our Company (100-TONN MONTAZH) dismantled a 15-25 turning-and-boring machine at the production site of EVRAZ NTMK (EVRAZ Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant, OAO) in Nizhny Tagil (Sverdlovskaya Oblast).
Lifting capacity of the overhead cranes turned to be insufficient for the required operations, therefore a GP 60 gantry system with special tools was applied for the works. The works were accomplished in four stages: dismantling, transportation, installation and setting to work under supervision of EVRAZ NTMK specialists.
It should be noted that prior to setting the machine to work, the CUSTOMER’s land-surveyor had developed an as-built drawing for installation of the machine parts, which led to ideal installation of the machine.
