Karl Augustine AG, Thayngen. Switzerland.
Ebbsfleet Engineering Services were awarded the contract to remove, pack and ship an 11 colour Cerrutti Gravure press from Thayngen, Switzerland to Seuol, South Korea.
Mechanical and electrical engineers were supplied by ourselves along with all required tooling and plant.
Prior to dismantling, a complete survey was performed by both the Mechanical and Electrical teams.
A detailed written and photographic record of was then produced to assist the re-installation in South Korea.
Upon completion of the report all cabling was match marked, labelled, removed and packed for onwards shipping.
Weak floor areas in the press hall were strengthened from below by placing 10t Acro Soldiers in the basement area beneath thus strengthen lifting load point areas.
The press, including slitters, winders, the boiler and all spare parts were then systematically match marked and the dismantling process commenced utilising amongst other plant 2 off 10t forklift trucks with jibs.
All parts removed were loaded to wooden skids, anti rust sprayed and shrunk wrapped for sea container transport.
All items were recorded as to skid number and container number to ease identification of parts in South Korea.
During the 8 week project a total of 48 containers were loaded and shipped on to South Korea.
