Relocation:

Moving five automated processing lines

Industry:

Glass Processing | Time Frame: 3 weeks (each) | Staffing: 4-8 People

Description:

Following the merger of Viridian and National Glass a number of automated glass processing lines required relocation within New Zealand

There were three types of production lines moved; three “IGU” lines (for making double glazing), an arrising line and a glass laminating line. They were moved from Auckland to Christchurch, Nelson and Wellington. The job was managed from start to finish by our capable team who provided a turnkey solution for our client

The different stages of the project consisted of: survey of layout, tolerances, etc > disconnection and disassembly > containerisation and transport of machine parts > reinstallation > commissioning

Steelcraft took care of all electrical, compressed air, water and hydraulic disconnection and reconnection – the client didn’t have to manage any subcontractors or labour

Challenges:

All projects were carried out in functioning factories that required Steelcraft to work with production, safety and space constraints in mind at all times
