Unrivalled support & testing after installationInstallation of machinery is not necessarily complete when all equipment is fitted into its final location. Due to the complexity of some machinery, it is vital to provide commissioning support and testing for our client’s machinery installation projects.

We hand over the project to our clients only after completely checking the ins and outs of the machinery installation and getting satisfied with the result.

Installation of machinery and equipment at a plywood factory
Beck & Pollitzer has completed a large-scale machinery and equipment project at a plywood factory. This extensive industrial installation project included the installation of presses, automatic line systems, conveyor systems and various specialised equipment such as a new debarking machine, veneer drying lines, glue preparation systems and a veneer peeling line.
The project presented some unique challenges which were handled skillfully by our experienced team. The hot and cold presses (with one frame weighing 24 tons) and the automatic line systems were installed in a live working environment, which was a Health & Safety consideration as the plant continued to operate.
The weather was also a challenging factor; the plywood lamination press was installed in a workshop with an open roof, which meant the team and equipment were exposed to rainy conditions whilst work was completed.
Our team consisted of 10 Engineers, 40 Fitters, Welders and Drivers, 30 Electricians, 20 Pipe Makers and experienced management, as well as site supervisors and Health & Safety supervisors, who all contributed to the successful and safe completion of this project.
