Another knuckleboom crane leaves Expom SA factory

Expom SA manufactured knuckleboom type crane at the order of a customer from Norway. The cooperation of companies resulted in the implementation of innovative technological solutions. Due to special needs of the Employer, Expom engineers applied latest anti-corrosion protections.

The new knuckleboom crane manufactured by engineers from Kurzętnik is smaller than its predecessors. However, it distinguishes itself with special anti-corrosion and overloading protections, which is very important with respect to constant improvement of safety which is an absolute priority for engineering staff from Expom. The unit is also equipped with innovative remote control system and a number of devices boosting operation comfort. Very high requirements regarding anti-corrosion protection are also worth mentioning. The application of a few-layer varnish coat was possible to be done in Expom owing to the experience of staff and the technologies which the leader from Kurzętnik has at its disposal. The crane is equipped with power hydraulics and electrical systems which enable efficient functioning even in extreme conditions, proven with a certificate of international associations.

Apart from the crane steel structure and equipping it with complex control systems, the company gave access to its own dynamic test tower in which specialist tests are conducted under the supervision of international inspectors. Each stage of tests must be in compliance with the requirements of classification associations DNV, ABS, Lloyd, PRS, RMRS, RINA.

All parties to the contract interested in the project participated in the tests of this unit. The performed tests were aimed at the objective assessment of the offshore crane and the confirmation of the execution in accordance with the international offshore standard.

Knuckleboom with full quality and acceptance documentation will go to Norway, where it will be installed on a vessel. This is another crane of this type which will be sent from Kurzętnik to Scandinavia.

Expom SA increases production throughput

Efficiency and lead time play a key role in the production of large-dimension steel structures. The Company from a small town of Kurzętnik has increased the plant production capacity owing to the latest technology – a modern Machining Centre  HAAS EC-1600.

Machining Centre HAAS EC-1600, a modern CNC machine are supposed to support production efficiency significantly. This is the first, in the history of Expom, CNC machine with an automatic tool library. The purchased machining centre will enable fast and precise performance of complicated steel elements. Horizontal machining centre utilizes gravity, allowing the shavings to fall from the equipment. Owing to this almost perfectly clean conditions of machining are obtained. The reduction of the elements' clogging with shavings extends the life of the machines two-fold. This machine tool demonstrates the ability to work well at large loads and it is equipped with spindles with ISO50 cone, characterized by high turning moment for metal removal. HAAS machining centre will supplement the operation of bigger machines, owing to which elimination of delays in production will be possible. This is extremely innovative and efficient equipment which is compatible with 3D designing technology.

In addition, this investment fits into the selected strategy of Expom management board, the objective of which is to strengthen the leader's position in the production of highly processed final goods. Therefore, a Faro Arm measurement arm, manufactured in the USA, which is technologically compatible with the previously purchased centre, also from the USA, has been recently purchased. The set is supplemented with the purchase of a new 20-ton overhead travelling bridge operating in the same production hall. A specialist from the University of Technology was employed to write programmes for 3D machining and he will help the engineers from Kurzętnik, by preparing the first applications for this machine, to implement the innovative technological process in Expom S.A.

- This investment cost above EUR 250,000. In addition, we invested PLN 100,000 in tools only. However, these are not surprising expenses to us, but logical consequence of changes implemented into Expom successively. The next investments will be the response to high requirements of our clients for whom we constantly raise the bar in the scope of production for offshore, power or exploration industries. There is no development without bold and well-thought investments – says Rafał Domżalski, the President of Expom.

The purchase of HAAS EC-1600 machine along with the recent purchase of two 20-ton overhead travelling cranes and outlays on infrastructure are the elements of an extensive plan of the company modernization. Within the framework of development of the potential of the company, selected employees will be trained in the scope of operation of EC 1600. Soon the interested clients will have an opportunity to fully use the possibilities of the Machining Centre.
