Don’t get in a pickle trying to move heavy machines

When it comes to relocating heavy machinery, the Sippel Group has all the right moves.

The Sippel Group recently assisted Three Threes Condiments, one of Australia’s leading
condiment companies, move a 4-tonne palletiser and a 2-tonne case packer from its Sydney headquarters.

Sippel used its model AS18 Airskate Air Flotation Load Movement System to do the job.

The palletiser was located adjacent to an internal ramp leading up to the warehouse section.

The machine had to be moved away from the ramp area until it could be slid across and rotated 180° so it could be moved up the ramp.

At the top of the ramp the leading end of machine was then able to pass through a narrow doorway leading into the warehouse area.

It was then moved through another slightly wider doorway to the dispatch area of the storage warehouse.

Once there, it was ready to be loaded onto a waiting semi-trailer.

“The move was carried out with safety and ease of movement,” said Sippel Group managing director Geoff Sippel.
