The Problem

An urgent need arose for Siemens Flow Instruments Ltd to manage their Flow Meter Bodies ranging from 800mm to 1200mm in diameter and with weights approaching 1.2 tons. They were getting increasingly difficult to manage in Production, given the scale of the component, with paintwork getting damaged.

The Solution

Siemens challenged Handling Concepts to design and produce a mechanism to turn them over to solve the problem, setting a time scale of 8 weeks (working from a detailed specification of weights, sizes and relationships with other production equipment).

The Outcome

We designed and produced a hydraulic platform to gently turn them over on nylon lined beds, and within the 8 week deadline! The system embodies safety and control equipment to protect against ‘runaway’ and prevent other undesirable operating conditions.

Handling Concepts is very professional and met our deadline with time to spare. I would highly recommend them and the after sales service is excellent!
