12-chamber chip silo system: SÜLZLE KOPF team navigates with centimetre precision

In December 2017, SÜLZE KOPF Anlagenbau installed a 12-chamber chip silo system in a new industrial hall in Dornbirn, Austria. The overall order comprised the assembly planning, the manufacture of all silo chambers including the steel construction as well as the delivery logistics and assembly on site. In cooperation with SÜLZLE Nutzeisen, the 33-ton steel construction in Sulz a.N. was manufactured and welded. The silo chambers were also produced in-house. The 7.5 ton chambers are 7.5 m long, 2.23 m high and 1.8 m wide. The on-site assembly was therefore a particular challenge. The steel construction segments were designed in such a way that a plant with four silo chambers each could be pre-assembled on the steel construction with a special crane. In Austria, the SÜLZLE KOPF team had to push four silo chambers each through a suspended ceiling on a steel structure without a hall crane. Four hydraulic lifting rams helped to position the system with centimetre precision. It was important that the chambers could also be lowered later for maintenance purposes. Thanks to the detailed delivery logistics and the computer simulation of the assembly process, the system could be put into operation quickly and the assembly time limited to only 8 days.
