INDUSTRIAL RELOCATION OF 24 PRESSES - UP TO 94 TONS - TURNKEY

As a result of production of household appliances being discontinued at AEG-Electrolux in Nuremberg, 24 presses with accompanying equipment, loading stations, material and instrument exchange systems had to be relocated to the UK, France and Spain. The weight of the machines varied from 18 to 94 tonnes. A key factor for AEG was that the main contractor takes on full responsibility, including overseeing of sub-contracting work.

After the project office had worked out a detailed plan, AEG’s purchasing department was so convinced, that Convoi was given this task. The largest press, with a weight of 94 tonnes, a height of 8 metres and a width of 5 metres, had to be dismantled, transferred from Nuremberg to Rothemburg and there reassembled. This meant that all electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical components had to be put together and reinstalled.

The press was delivered ready for production without incident or damage. Another press had to be transported to Revin in France.
