Changing moulds weighing up to 900 kg’s; 15 times per week.
Using fork trucks proved to be a problem. The trucks could cause damage to the machines and moulds and required a lot of space to move around the work cell.
A Free Standing GLCS-FS-2000-28-63-12 Bridge Crane Capacity: 1,000kg.
Benefits of this Product:
The Gorbel Free Standing Working Station Crane offered:
- A more cost effective and flexible solution that allowed the worker to change the moulds faster and have less damage to the machines.
- The bridge crane layout allowed them to have more machines serviced by one bridge.
- The ease of movement and positioning of the bridge made it easier for die change outs.
An alternative was a jib crane. This was not chosen because the company did not want a circular area covered.
