Recently the team at Workplace Alliance were asked to relocate a large spinning machine from Waurn Ponds, Victoria, Australia to Spain.

The brief:
Disconnect, secure and where possible keep the machine intact for shipment overseas.
This posed significant issues as the spinning machine is 11.2 metres in length.

Together the technicians formulated a plan of building a cradle under the machines sub frame. This allowed us to support the entire length

without having to dismantle the machine into sections (as per conventional method) this also allowed us to meet the specific brief of our client.

This innovative approach made it possible to exceed the customers brief and also maintained machine integrity.

All works were completed ahead of time, under budget, with nil safety issues.

Our clients in Spain were delighted with the result and reported a successful reconnection at their plant.
