November 16 - Project and heavylift forwarder Spedition K
Kübler used its new equipment for the first time during transport operations involving on-site transportation of a 60 tonne processing machine. For the 13m long, 3m wide and 3.4m high piece of machinery, the six-axle InterCombi PB was used.
"For the first operations, we carried out on-site transportation with axle loads up to 36 tonnes. Conditions in the production halls were in part extremely tight which meant we literary had no available space left when doing the theoretical planning with CAD. However, our driver could manoeuvre very sensitively with the power booster so that he could easily position the vehicle with millimetre accuracy," said Heinz Rößler, Kübler managing director.
The next operation for the 2 x 4-axle InterCombi PB was its use in the movement of a 235-tonne injection moulding machine.
