Ainscough Industrial were contracted to assist with the relocation of a large hydraulic press from its current location in the facility to a new location on the same site for one of our major blue chip clients.

The first phase of the project involved the match making, disconnection and dismantling of the press which took approximately two weeks.

Once the press had been dis-assembled all the sections and ancillary items were loaded onto transport, provided by Ainscough industrial, and conveyed to the new location within the same site.

Due to the size, position and restrictions of the press the Ainscough team used our Megalift JS400 jacking system along with a 40/60 Versa Lift, 11T Valla Crane and Fork Lift Trucks to ensure all sections were moved safely and securely.

As the press sections were off loaded in the new area the OEM engineers carried out hydraulic upgrade works on each of the sections.

Once these works were completed the Ainscough Industrial team then started work the second phase of re-assembly and re-connection of the hydraulic press onto its new foundations to the complete satisfaction of the client.
