Expertise in forming technology: SCHOLPP relocates an automatic fine-blanking machine

Relocation of an automatic fine-blanking machine

Efficient service thanks to customer proximity: This was the benefit that the SCHOLPP Nuremberg team brought to the table during a regional relocation project. The team of experienced forming technology experts were commissioned by PRESSEN HAAS GmbH from Straßberg, Baden-Württemberg, to dismantle and load a fine-blanking press at Brose Fahrzeugteile GmbH & Co. KG in Coburg, Bavaria.

With an experienced installation manager at the helm, the Nuremberg SCHOLPP team had big plans: The fine-blanking press at Brose, which was to be dismantled and loaded along with its accessories, weighed in at almost 46 metric tons. The on-site spatial conditions also meant that the removal of the automatic fine-blanking machine, consisting of reel, straightener, belt feed, press housing and laser fencing system, was anything but routine. The project could only be completed successfully thanks to the elaborate and detailed advance planning by SCHOLPP’s design department. The low ceiling height in the production area made it virtually impossible to turn the press over for internal transportation.

Well-planned and quick dismantling and loading during ongoing factory operations

One of the challenges posed by the dismantling and removal of the 46-metric-ton and almost 5-meter-long press was the almost complete lack of vertical maneuverability. The lifting gantry that was used had a load capacity of 320 metric tons but could only be raised by approx. 400 mm, which was not enough to safely turn over the plant. A customized technical solution was therefore drawn up, and the gantry was extended to include additional lifting gear so that the press could be securely placed down before being relocated using a machinery trolley (60 metric tons). A mobile truck-mounted crane was used to load the press quickly and directly onto the low-loader seeing as there was barely any interim storage space in the area outside the hall and not much room to maneuver. The client had also stipulated that factory transport should not be interrupted. The SCHOLPP engineers had already analyzed and planned for the spatial conditions and the individual steps involved in turning over and removing the press during the on-site inspection, and had summarized the issues for the client in a concept paper.

The dedicated Nuremberg SCHOLPP team managed to complete this project on time and with great technical precision in just two weeks alongside ongoing production at the Brose factory in Coburg, to the satisfaction of both clients. This project enabled SCHOLPP to play on all of its strengths to the benefit of the clients: the favorable location of the Nuremberg site, the very best technical equipment on site and a competent installation team. The sophisticated design work, the targeted use of special equipment and the dedicated teamwork impressed all of the involved parties.
