Sippel’s Airskate moves 22 tonne milling machine

The 22 tonne computer controlled milling machine was moved by Sippel 's Australian Made Airskate air flotation load movement system out of the client's old machine shop, then transported to client's new location and moved into their new factory.

Floor for the 'out move' was typical long term machine shop conditions, which simply required nominal cleaning and removal of swarf debris and for the 'in move' the factory floor had been pre-coated with a rough friction material, which simply required the use of lino and power pull by fork-lift up the gradient immediately outside the dock and then over the somewhat undulating floor to its location, guided by personnel.

Sippel's GKS perfect Jacks were utilised to level the machine by the installer in its new position.

Sippel has moved all types of machines and loads over the past 30 years without personal injury, damage to equipment, factory or floors.
