This time we helped our neighbour – world-class crane manufacturer KONECRANES. They turned to us for help in installing strain gauge plates of the weighing system manufactured by KONECRANES.
The plates were installed on the overhead double-girder casting crane with a lifting capacity of 250/50t, which is located in the continuous steel casting department at the territory of Arcelor Mittal Kryvyi Rih. The technological process allows the stop of this crane only once a year for 6 days. Thus, the deadline of this work for our specialists was only 6 calendar days.
The works were carried out in 2 shifts and consisted in raising each side of the trolley by means of two hydraulic jacks with a lifting capacity of 100 t and installing a weighing equipment plate under the balancers. Then, all bolted connections were restored and cabling and wiring products were mounted. Truck cranes were not used during the works, and the load trolley was not dismantled at level 0, which made it possible to speed up the works and meet the deadline of the crane shutoff.
