Sippel Airskate makes light work of heavy move

Air floatation specialists Sippel International recently faced one of its biggest challenges in moving a 4.5 tonne lithographic laser writer machine.

Sippel International’s Hovair Airskate Air Flotation Load Movement System was chosen because of its safe, smooth movement characteristics, which not all other movement equipment can attain.

Such smooth movement, with virtually no vibration, was vital to avoid serious damage to the delicate machine components.

The project involved turning the machine through 225° and squeezing it through a narrow opening in a wall.

The machine was then successfully maneuvered into a very confined new location.

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