Delivery Project HCME Hitachi
Rigging designer was asked by HCME Amsterdam to devise a solution for the hoisting of the track and mainframes of a number of different models of excavators. HCME Amsterdam produces medium sized excavators (from 10 to 45 tonnes). In addition, HCME Amsterdam has a large training and demo center that offers space for training, presentations and possibilities to test machines on the demo site.
The assignment was to develop 2 equals that could lift the different frames for mounting. Both have a WLL of 14 tonnes and the equator of the mainframe is equipped with special fixing tools.
The equator of the mainframe is constructed so that it can be easily set up so that different types of mainframes can be hoisted from the excavators.
