Whether you are changing up the layout of your facility, investing in new machinery and equipment, or are moving to a different location, industrial facilities and factories face similar challenges when it comes to moving their equipment. Cumbersome, extremely expensive, and sensitive to damage, relocating or moving equipment is best handled using machine moving services in SA.
In this article we will take you through the various challenges and dangers faced by facility operators and owners when it comes to solving the problem of rigging and moving heavy equipment and machinery, and how your facility can act to solve these issues with ease, and at a minimal expense.
The biggest challenge to facility managers looking to relocate equipment, is how to do it safely. There are numerous dangers present when attempting to do so, which is why it is generally best handled by an experienced team of riggers.
These dangers include potential damage to the equipment being moved, surrounding equipment and the facility itself, the personnel in your facility, as well as its actual operations.
Needless to say, each of these potential accidents can be remarkably costly to your business and can even lead to a loss of human life.
This puts the onus on facility managers to ensure that equipment transportation is done professionally, safely, and with careful planning. Something that a reliable rigging service can ensure.
The equipment being moved is generally at the most risk of taking damage during transportation. Heavy equipment is generally large, cumbersome, extremely heavy, and also sensitive to damage from numerous sources.
Because of this, moving heavy equipment should always be handled by skilled and experienced riggers. Something that we here at Rigwell specialise in.
Any personnel in the area during transportation will be putting themselves at risk during the process. Rigging systems and heavy machinery can cause immense damage to their surroundings if transportation isn’t handled properly, and for any people nearby, this could result in severe injuries, or even death.
Besides the avoidable human cost, this could put your business in a bad position where it needs to pay out settlements, replace valued team members, or may need to smooth over a PR disaster.
Every second of downtime faced by your facility equates to a certain amount of money lost. While this is true for a pause in operations due to transportation, any equipment damaged during the process will only make matters worse.
Our team of professional riggers can help your facility ensure that minimal downtime is suffered, both by ensuring that the process is done smoothly, and by conducting it efficiently to get you up and running to full capacity in less time.
For those facilities that don’t have their own specialised fleet of machine-moving and rigging vehicles, the cost of obtaining them can be impractical. Besides this, a specialised skillset is needed to operate such equipment.
Different types of rigging operations require different, highly specialised vehicles and solutions which are generally impractical to obtain if you don’t already specialise in rigging.
