One of our biggest shipping so far – 13,3 meters long, 3,6 meters high and 3,3 meters wide. One machine in three different 40 ft shipping containers – so to be sure we hired professionals to help us ease out the BIG machine in manageable pieces. The machine is our biggest acid-filler in the SF4-series; SF4-8 Ten. A VRLA-filler with 10 filling stations that actually is able to handle and fill up to ten different battery-types simultaneously. And of course it’s automatic change-over of the fixed filling heads…
First a little piece to warm us up.
Time for the bigger pieces… special tools for a heavy lift was necessary.
Preparations before lift was meticulous.
Then it was time to start moving the heavy stuff… very carefully.
Half of the bottom portion of the machine is on the roll. With the right type of equipment everything is
Theoretically it should fit through the big door…
…and it did fit out the big door, even if it was tight! :)
Then comes the interesting part – lifting it up and into the 40 ft shipping container.
With a little assistance from our sturdy 3,5 ton fork lift we eased it into the shipping container. There was at least a centimeter (1/2 inch) on both sides.
Mission accomplished. Only the rest to load into the next two containers!
