Sippel Group has all the right moves


The Sippel Group late last year succeeded with an awkward “site unseen” 2.5 tonne hire move of a rather fragile processing packaging machine.

The machine is used to pack gift bottles of fresh Hibiscus Flowers.

This was not only an unusual application or industry for the Sippel Group, but was also performed at short notice.

On this occasion the Sippel crew did not have an opportunity to pre-inspect the site.

On arrival, the team had the difficult task of maneuvering its four AS18-HP HOVAIR AIRSKATES into place to accommodate the move.

The concrete floor was not only in a food environment, but had a semi-friction finish with limited compressed air supply.

The team used thin slip sheet belting strips to reduce air usage.

The job was completed in a short time, squeezing the bulky machine through three door-ways with millimetres to clear and into a very constricted final position.

The Sippel Group has been safely moving machines and other items for more than 30 years with 100 per cent success using their trademark movement and lifting technology, the Airskate Flotation Movement System.

The company has never had a personal injury or damage to equipment, floors or buildings.
