LUKAS expertise moves 30 tons

Among other things, Bosch Rexroth, a specialist for drive and control technology, manufactures generator gear units for wind turbines. When these giants need to be transported within the production halls with a crane, safety planning needs to take misaligned gears into account. At Bosch Rexroth, safety and accident prevention have top priority. For its facility in Nuremberg, the company looked for a reliable solution for precision lifting of the gear units in emergency situations. LUKAS developed a reliable lifting system to meet these requirements.

Precise movement not possible

The gear units, which weigh up to 30 tons, can slip or jam if operated incorrectly. However, the workers are unable to lift the units from every angle with a crane.If somebody would be trapped, it might be impossible for his colleagues to precisely move it and rescue him.

A powerful assist from LUKAS

To find a smart solution that would ensure its ability to act in such emergencies, Bosch Rexroth put its trust in the technical expertise of LUKAS. Based on tests performed in co-operation with its own factory fire brigade and Nuremberg's municipal fire brigade, a reliable lifting system was developed that makes it possible to shift the multi-ton gear units with millimetre precision.

LUKAS lifting system

In future, two LUKAS LFM 40/200 cylinders coupled to a distributor valve will lift the units by up to 20 cm. Since rescue work is often a matter of millimetres, the exact height can be adjusted manually by means of a type LH2 hand pump. Now Bosch Rexroth can meet the varied and demanding safety challenges posed by extreme situations with a high degree of flexibility and reliability.
