One of our customers, a market leader in Heavy Engineering equipment services, wanted onsite support for an alignment project. They were installing a heavy earth mover for material handling, which was critical to port operations; that too in the remote regions of Eastern India.
Under normal circumstances alignment usually refers to shaft alignment, but in this case, the client wanted geometric alignment, which includes flatness and bore alignment. Besides this, the project presented a multitude of challenges.
At one end, the geometric alignment was required at multiple positions and at different heights, ranging from 1 mt. to 10 mts. This variable execution height mandated that we plan an innovative execution methodology to tackle safety risks, movement and mobility.
