When Sydney medical supplier Resmed needed help to move a giant six tonne machine to its new plant, they contacted heavy machinery specialists the Sippel Group.
The expert team from Sippel safely moved the machine from the Sleep Apnoea Equipment Production Line at Resmed’s North Ryde plant to their new premises at Bella Vista in western Sydney.
The main brief was to protect a new factory floor that Resmed was keen to keep intact.
Sippel used its model AS18 Airskate Air Flotation Load Movement System to do the job.
The AS18 has a 10 tonne capacity @180kPa Maximum Floor Pressure, from a plant or mobile hire compressed air line.
The tape marks on floor indicate the exact positioning of the machine as required by the client required.
“The move was carried out safely and successfully with a minimum of fuss and no damage to the new floor,” said Sippel Group managing director Geoff Sippel.
