No manufacturing or service industry can be efficient without a sound production line. When one of the largest global construction machinery manufacturers engaged Action Handling to remedy an issue in their factory, we were excited to gather more details and discuss the solution.
Before long we had arrived on-site, pen and paper in hand, ready for a thorough ’requirements gathering‘ session with the head of engineering and the director of procurement. It was soon identified that the company’s billion dollar global revenues were generated by a simply massive turnover of equipment, components and fabrication work on a daily basis. In order to continue satisfying demand and adhere to tight delivery schedules, our client would need to greatly increase their ability to produce component parts in a timely fashion.
Our designs for three sizes of industrial trailers with Double Ackerman steering are as follows:
- Six units - capacity: 8000Kg, length 4700mm x width 1800mm.
- Six units - capacity: 3000Kg, length 5300mm x width 1900mm.
- Six units - capacity: 2500Kg, length 4200mm x width 1900mm.
These trailers are fitted with a bespoke upstand, suitable to hold the specific component parts used by our client. Each trailer is also manufactured with a waisted centre, to allow easy access for blasting and spraying the finished component part.
Our photographs show the first trial unit for approval, with a total of 18 trailers required to complete the transformation project.
