Erecting a 3,000 Ton Press



Erected 3000 ton pull down forging press. The single largest piece weighed approx. 300,000 lbs. The press had to be up righted from a horizontal position to vertical, set into the foundation and held in place while the balance of components were installed. The press was held in place by the 1000 ton gantry system. The assembly work required the use of a 500 ton hydraulic crane in tandem with 265 ton hydraulic crane and the Coast 1000 ton gantry system. The project to assemble and install took 4 weeks.
