Case Study

Heavy rigging and internal relocation of a shear press

Our team of highly experienced riggers recently executed a demanding project involving the heavy rigging and internal relocation of a shear press in Greenville, SC. This project was carried out for a valued and repeat client, specializing in the manufacturing of warehouse racking systems.
The initial phase of this meticulous rigging and moving operation focused on the internal relocation of a 40,000-pound shear press, creating space for forthcoming equipment installations. Subsequently, we successfully offloaded and relocated a new 27-foot roller metal forming machine, weighing 28,000 pounds, to the designated area within the facility. To ensure utmost safety during the intricate process, our team utilized a 40/60- versa lift, operated by a wireless handheld remote control.
Given the asymmetrical centers of gravity and varying sizes of the machinery involved, meticulous planning and critical safety measures were meticulously implemented. Every movement, down to the millimeter, was closely monitored, mitigating potential safety hazards. The successful completion of this complex rigging project showcased the exceptional expertise of our four-member crew, earning high praise from our client. As a testament to our capabilities, Beck & Pollitzer USA has been entrusted with an upcoming heavy rigging offload project by the same client, further solidifying our trusted partnership.
