The relocation of large, heavy, expensive machinery requires precision, skill, and a wide range of specialized equipment. Utilising equipment such as Trucks with mounted Palfinger knuckleboom cranes, hydraulic jack and skate equipment, hydraulic gantrys GKT have your needs covered. In addition, GKT have the e-Motion heavy-duty transport load moving system, battery-powered and remote controlled for the professional internal heavy goods transport on clean and even floors.
ECO-SKATE® e-Motion 40
eMotion heavy duty transport load moving system. This is a battery-powered heavy-duty machine skate for internal heavy goods transport on clean and even floors. All movements are proportional and precisely controlled via remote control with a single joystick, incl. LiFePo4 battery, battery charger, turntable with anti-slip rubber pad, and radio remote control. Equipped with high-quality HTS nylon wheels (load wheels) and specially manufactured polyurethane traction wheels, which are abrasion-resistant, non-marking, and cut-resistant as well as suitable for all smooth and level floors. In combination with an S skate or two ROTO skates with the same installation height it forms a safe overall system with 3 load points.
Using our own crane-equipped trucks and specialized equipment, we have performed many complex machinery moves, many of which were in confined spaces and indoors.
GKT transported state-of-the-art simulator equipment to Ryanair’s new flight training facility. This was one of many projects carried out within the aviation sector. A site survey was completed before any moving of equipment to ensure a successful operation. Once delivered, the operation to move them into place began. A protective covering was placed over the floor to prevent any damage from the tyres or the outriggers.
Using the Palfinger knuckleboom crane, each simulator was placed into position
Hydraulic jack & SKATING EQUIPMENT
For machinery relocation where space is at a premium, a solution including hydraulic jacks and skates can be used to position the load. In this image, a 70tonne power transformer was delivered by GKT to a substation. It was offloaded using the onboard crane and then placed in position at the foundation using the hydraulic jacking & skating equipment.
The offloading and positioning technique eliminated the need for an extra mobile crane.
Hydraulic GANTRY FOR HEAVY MACHINERY
The hydraulic gantry lifting operation shown here began with GKT delivering the 155tonne power transformer to a substation. It was offloaded from the transport equipment by GKT and positioned at the foundation using the hydraulic jacking & skating equipment.
Again, the offloading and positioning technique eliminated the need for an extra mobile crane.
