Shipping out doubles

In the midst of everything with the construction of the new hall and all, we still do shipping. At times the absence of a floor or a hard surface have created smaller problems for us, but we have endured and managed to work around the obstacles. But those days are over now and the other day we shipped out two machines. Two double-machines of our popular SF4-2 series.

 

Concrete floor

Time to fill the hall with concrete to get a sturdy floor in our new assembly hall. A gigant pump is constantly filled up by concrete trucks.

The concrete is pumped via a long arm and hose into the hall to form the new floor.

Filing up the floorbed with concrete goes rather quick and the liquid floor surface is flattened as we go.

The hall is filling up bit by bit and a shiny concrete surface emerges more and more.

Almost done, just a few square meters to go…

As soon as the concrete starts to harden the polishing of the surface is up. This looks like a machine I personally would love to ride around on.

New floor hardened and is now ready for use.

Next step is furnishing and set up of the interior as soon as the doors are up.

New Year new holds

After the Christmas and New Years eve, we are ramping up production on the new year. Apart from new machines our new production hall is shaping up more and more. The roof and plating is ongoing and preparation for the new floor has been made. The new area around the hall is also taking shape. A driveway has been founded and the pole setting for the gates are also done. Now we are waiting for the floor to be concreted.

Roof was starting to come up in December.

After the roof, the preparation of concreting the floor started.

Floor ready for concrete.

External plating is under way on a wonderful sunny day.

Building days

We are in the middle of the ongoing building of our new assembly hall. The new hall is taking form more and more and it’s a rather quick process after all. As soon as the connection blocks was in place, the steel skeleton was next.

After a days work the entire beam structure was on place. A crane lifted the steal beams in place one by one and the construction team secured the beams to the connection blocks.

Next step in the process as soon as the beams where in place, was the concrete wall elements. A bigger crane lifted them into place and the next construction team fastened them to the steel constructiuon.

When the concrete walls was in place the roof-structure was started as well as the walls, which was lifted up into position and fastened to the steel beams.

With the walls in place we start to get a feeling about the size of the new assembly hall – 12 meters width, 36 meters long and 7,6 meters high. More than enough space for a fullsize indoor tennis court actually.

A Day At The Races, Källström style.

Last week we took a break and went to a nearby race-track to blow off some dust. The weather was faboulous and apart from a few wheel-related mishaps (some put the pedal to the metal and unhinged a tire from the rim in the process) the driving went fine. After several practice runs two finals followed, B-final and A-final, to separate the wheat from the chaff – and by then both gloves and all bets were off.

In the A-final the race went hot and without mercy. A close encounter sent two cars up in an embankment, but in the end all four cars crossed the finish line.

The happy Källström Team prepared and ready to enter the race track:

Upper row, from left to right:
Björn Boij, Fredrik Larsson, Anders Källström, Mirek Polanski, Björn Meeuwisse, Tommy Berglund.

Lower row, from left to right:
Bo Johansson, Lotta Limborg, Camilla Källström, Marie Lindbergh.

Lying down: Jim Sandberg.

The fender bender in the A-finale. Two cars went off the track together (red circle) and the black car (green arrow) ended up the winner, the silvery car (the  yellow arrow) ended up as runner up.

B-final winners from left to right on the winners’ stand: Lotta (no 2), Björn Boij (no 1), Camilla (no 3).

A-final winners from left to right on the winners’ stand: Fredrik (no 2), Mirek (no 1), Anders (no 3). Far left, Jim is a flabbergasted number 4.

In the workshop

We are completing a couple of new machines in the workshop, it’s a couple of our popular SF4-2D. They are up and running and soon ready to be shipped away to customer.

Buildning as usual

We are currently building two new machines of the SF5-41 and are close to completion. Right now it’s isolation of pipes since the machines are built for chilled acid (-16 Celcius).

New week, new shipping

This week we shipped out three machines, two of our popular acid mixers and one sodium mixer.

As always the machines are steadily secured during the shipping, with screws securing the feets and with heavy duty ratchet straps securing the machine to the containers cargo hooks.

 

Shipping time

In spite of the gray and dull weather, another week another shipping.

This weeks cargo contains three of our popular acid fillers for SLI batteries and one acid level control. The level control unit can be used for checking batteries acid level after top off after formation.

After the usual sturdy securing of the machines in the container we closed, sealed up and waved goodbye to yet another successful shipping.

First shipment for 2020

Today we are sending away the first shipping of the new year.

First machine to leave the premises is a sedimentation unit that now is packed, sealed and on it’s way to the customer.
