A complicating factor during the project was that preparing the robots for lifting was only possible on a landing in building’s stairwell. The robot had to be lifted from the mezzanine level, which is why maximum lifting height was limited to the height of the entrance door’s case.
Our hall crane was outfitted with a hydraulically movable fly-jib, and thus we could carry out the lifting and moving task by reaching through the door from a distance of 7.5 metres.
The old robot was placed on a transport vehicle and two new robots made by ABB were moved into the lab. The robots were lifted to the building’s mezzanine level using an electrically powered, low ground pressure Ormig 16 tmE special crane, and then moved to their installation site using a pallet lifter. They were then installed in the laboratory at the positions according to the layout, following guidance provided by the university’s lecturers.
The robot and its control cabinet—previously placed on a transport vehicle—were moved to the other side of the building, and then placed in the laboratory located on the basement level on the opposite side of the staircase, using our pick & carry crane.
Our company considers corporate social responsibility—including support for technical education in Hungary—to be of paramount importance.
Our special machine handling service went to support the education of the up-and-coming generation embarking on a career in technology.
