Deufol moves a high-tech production line from Belgium to the US.
Deufol Houthalen recently moved a production line from Belgium to America for a customer in the measuring instruments sector.
This move was part of a "turnkey project": the production line was handed over in working order and had to be delivered in perfect working order to the new location in the USA.
The project included:
- Inventory and measurement of the current "as built" situation.
- Disassembly, mechanical, pneumatic and electrical.
- Packing in seaworthy (maritime) packaging.
- Container stuffing including weighing (Verified Gross Mass).
- Preparation of packing lists and export documents.
- Sea transport to America.
- Deufol Monitoring of the cargo during the entire route: Shock, Temperature, Humidity, Light, Position.
- Assembly and installation, mechanical and electrical including pneumatics.
- Testing: INPUT/OUTPUT inspection on delivery.
- The dismantled parts of the production line were placed on wooden (IPPC certified) bottoms.
- Everything was airtight packed in aluminium foil with desiccant. The whole installation was protected against damage from external influences, as well as against excessive humidity.
- The entire installation was loaded into 40' sea containers, 8 in total.
- Disassembly & packaging took 20 days.
- Transport took 4 weeks.
- Assembly and delivery took 26 days.
- We counted 2,000 disassembly/assembly hours.
The advantages for our customer were:
- 1 Deufol contact person for the entire project.
- Monitoring of the installation throughout the entire route, using 8 Deufol CPC devices.
- Fully tailor-made service: what the customer wanted to do, the customer did. Deufol took over what the customer did not want or could not do.
- Savings in personnel costs, travel & other expenses.
- Saving time: the customer was able to restart the production line at very short notice. And thus start production.
- A satisfied customer... because the next machine relocation has already been ordered!
