Enser was tasked with design and build a fixture to lift and turn down a fully assembled stator housing.
250 TON Turn Down Fixture
This fixture was designed to lift and turn down a fully assembled stator housing. The total weight of the fixture and stator was 250 metric tons. The fixture was designed using lightweight high strength material in some areas to cut weight as the crane capacity in the area was at its limit. The fixture would be assembled piece by piece onto the stator. The stator would be lifted and then turned 90 degrees using the auxiliary crane hook. The stator would then be placed on a set of power rolls in the horizontal position. At this point the fixture would be disassembled in reverse order and returned to the storage rack.
Enser completed the task in the scheduled time frame and the fixture was a success.
