DELU has set new standards in the Indoor transport of heavy transformers.
Large power transformers can weigh as much as 700 tons or more. To move these leviathans within a factory, huge, bulky crane or rail systems are required. These challenges make the advantages of an air cushion system particularly apparent.
DELU supplies low-cost pallet transport systems that allow transformers weighing up to 1,000 tons to be positioned to millimetre precision and safely manoeuvred through narrow passageways by a single operator.
Such a system can comprise several (small) transports that are combined and arranged in different ways (parallel, inline) according to the size and distribution of the load. This enables the whole product spectrum of 10 to 1,000 tons to be covered easily and economically.
Complete transformers or components are placed on steel pallets, which means they can be picked up by the air cushion transporter at any time and conveyed to the next assembly station, the testing lab or the VPD. The hall crane is only required for the loading and unloading of the pallets. It is usually possible to dispense with inflexible rail systems entirely.
High flexibility and simple adaptation to new products and production processes
Load range can be easily expanded by DUO mode or expansion modules
Investment costs are reduced, productivity boosted and lead times shortened
Compact design and optimal space utilisation saves valuable space
Transport pallets can be used universally (transformers, active parts, tanks, coils)
Transformers transported quickly and safely
Transport system is easy for one operator to operate, even in DUO mode
Floating load allows precise positioning
Wide load distribution helps protect the floor
VPD bridges suitable for air cushions
Forked-shaped transporters for loading the press
Transformer transport during final assembly
Huge power transformers can be relocated and positioned to millimetre precision within a matter of minutes without the use of a crane
VPD loading for active part drying during pre-assembly
Fast, simple loading with optimum utilisation of the space in the 150° hot VPD
Electric sheets and coil cores transported without crane or forklift truck
Coils transferred from the winding unit to the press
The active parts must go from the core laying table to the VPD and from there to the intanking station
Mobile work and lifting platforms allow flexible assembly
Variable positions for test equipment and transformers enable optimum utilisation of the test laboratory
Air cushion technology opens up a wide range of different applications
Transport of high-voltage switches and circuit breakers
