MHE-Demag successfully handed over eight overhead travelling cranes to Yamazaki Mazak Singapore, one of the world’s leading machine tool manufacturers. Renowned for their machine centre, Yamazaki Mazak Singapore started their operation in Singapore in 1988 and have completed enormous expansion programmes for production facilities. The production plant boasted an area of 15,210sqm, and the new South East Asia Technology Centre spanned an area of 4,274 sqm.
MHE-Demag Singapore was awarded a contract to supply and install eight units of overhead travelling cranes with capacities ranging from 3.2t to 30t and five sets of KBK systems with capacities ranging from 250kg to 1t to a new production facility adjacent to their existing factory in Jurong.
An explosion-proof 3.2t crane was specially included to support the surface treatment process. As its working environment was hazardous, a special execution for the crane control box as well as motor enclosure was necessary to ensure safe lifting of parts and machine centres without causing explosions in the crane electrical circuitry.
