Dismantling of two press lines to be scrapped (GP 103 & 104), of 5 single presses each. Because of the excellent services supplied by CONVOI mechanics to our client BMW in Munich in 2009 we were commissioned once again with the dismantling of two press lines including their peripheral equipment. This required a most exact planning since units of a weight of up to 75 tonnes each were involved in the dismantling activity.
The first step was the dismantling of the peripheral equipment and the basement. Then the press tension rods followed in order to make the separation and hoisting of the heavy parts possible by means of a lifting frame.
Since the press lines were stationed on the first upper floor, part of them had to be conveyed to the ground floor by means of a lifting frame and a mobile crane and had to be loaded onto special transport.

For this dismantling job ca. 3,000 tonnes of steel were moved.
Up to 30 mechanics worked on this site for more than three months.
– Dismantling of the Coilpre coil press line (GP 1331) for reuse
Besides the scrapping of the press lines Fa. Goedicke Maschinenhandels – GmbH also commissioned Convoi to dismantle the Coilpre.
Here, according to the basic requirements of our commissioner, the complete plant lines 2 and 3D had to be thoroughly measured before the starting of the dismantling.
After this, Convoi started with the labelling and marking of this plant. For this purpose a very comprehensive dismantling file and photo portfolio were maintained.
Up to 12 mechanics worked on this site for more than eight weeks.
