Torsit places overhead cranes with innovative Container Lift System
After months of engineering and preparation, the time had finally come on 23 September. The new overhead crane of Kattenberg Verhuizingen was installed.
In the photo report, we will show you the process of engineering until the actual execution of the project.
Kattenberg Verhuizingen asked us to develop a system to (automatically) place the containers in the right sport. Our engineer has developed the innovative ‘Container Lift System’ for this purpose. Software, linked to the controls of the overhead crane with lifting beam, to pick up 20 and 25 ft containers (spreader).
The cat frame has been welded by the experienced employees of Transcom, after which it has been transported to the conservation company to be sprayed green. The crane, the cat frame and the spreader will be supplied in the customer’s house style.
While the cat frame gets his colour, our employees have started wiring the crane.
Once arrived in our workshop, the assembly and wiring can start. This process has been recorded in a Time Lapse.
Then, the cat frame has to be transported to the production hall of the customer, to place it on the crane.
To be able to use the Container Lift System, our engineer has to set up the installation (as far as possible at this moment).
When the most preparations have been completed, the crane can be lifted! Because of the professionalism of the men of Faber & Zonen from Joure, the task was completed in no time.
Meanwhile, the spreader is assembled in our workshop. This process has also been recorded in a Time Lapse.
Now the electricity network is connected in the company building of the customer, our engineer can finish installing the wiring and the set-up can be concluded.
The crane is then tested with test weights. When all tests are completed successfully, the crane is released.
