Heavy transport firm Cranes and Equipment Asia has transported a high-pressure plastic injection moulding machine from Thailand to Malaysia.
The machinery weighed 150 tonnes and include a 46-tonne die head and rear platen with ejector unit weighing 42 tonnes. The team from CEA Thailand arranged all transport and export documentation as well as demobilization for the parts.
“The CEA team began with disconnecting all hydraulic and electrical connections and other wired interfaces. Gates and fencing were then removed along with the hydraulic power packs which were placed into prefabricated temporary supports. The larger parts were next, which included access platforms, supply hopper and the SEPRO robotic arm,” a spokesperson for CEA said.
The machinery was moved by crane following drainage of residual oil from the tie bar cap plates and removal of four 6-tonne tie-rods.
Headquartered in Laem Chabang, Thailand, CEA operates offices in Songkhla, Bangkok, Myanamar and Singapore. It is a member of global logistics network Project Cargo Network, which comprises 233 specialist members in more than 100 countries.
