The project: Dismantling of a mechanical transfer press during ongoing production for a Tier 1 supplier to the automotive industry.
The challenge for us with many dismantling projects lies in the fact that they have to be carried out during ongoing production. Mostly, the production comes first. The presses must therefore be removed without affecting the production processes. In addition, the safety regulations of the legislator and the customer must be taken into account.
The difficulty with this project was that space was extremely limited. Because of the structure of the building, a wall was built around the press. On the side in the upper area of the press head, there was therefore only approx. 1.5 m of working space available on each side. There was also a large cellar around the machine.
The situation was aggravated by the fact that no other machines could be moved to ensure a sufficient transport route inside the building. This called for precision work.
