Beck & Pollitzer Conquers Complex Hydraulic Press Installation


Beck & Pollitzer’s reputation for tackling intricate heavy machinery installations precedes them, and this project for a reusable packing solutions manufacturer in Anderson, South Carolina, is a testament to their expertise. Presented with a seemingly impossible challenge – unloading and moving a colossal 25,000-pound hydraulic brake press without an accessible trailer ramp – the Beck & Pollitzer team rose to the occasion, showcasing their unwavering commitment to safety, innovation, and operational excellence.

A Daunting Challenge: The existing ramp presented a formidable obstacle: not only was it sloped, but it was riddled with potholes, posing significant safety risks and potential equipment damage. However, the Beck & Pollitzer team, renowned for their resourcefulness and adaptability, refused to be deterred. Utilizing their extensive experience and a well-orchestrated plan, they employed a combination of specialized equipment and meticulous maneuvers to overcome the challenge.

Confronting Obstacles & Strategic Solutions: Their arsenal included a VersaLift, a 15,000-pound forklift, multiple rigging booms, and a heavy-duty lifting bar. Each piece of equipment played a crucial role in the carefully choreographed operation. The VersaLift provided the necessary height and reach, while the forklift offered additional lifting capacity. The rigging booms facilitated precise maneuvering over the uneven terrain, and the lifting bar ensured the safe and secure handling of the massive press.

Meticulous Execution: But the success of this project wasn’t solely reliant on equipment. The exceptional skill and expertise of the Beck & Pollitzer rigging team were paramount. Their slow and deliberate movements, honed through years of experience navigating complex challenges, ensured the delicate operation proceeded flawlessly. Every step, from unloading the press to its final leveling and anchoring, was executed with meticulous attention to detail and unwavering adherence to safety protocols.
