CEA Project Logistics in Thailand recently carried out the demobilization and export of a 150 Tonne High-Pressure Plastic Injection Moulding Machine to Malaysia. CEA was assisted by Mitsubishi technicians, who originally factory installed the machine, for this demobilization effort.

The team began by disconnecting all hydraulic and electrical connections and other wired interfaces. Gates and fencing were then removed along with the hydraulic power packs which were packed into pre-fabricated temporary supports. The larger parts, including access platforms, supply hopper and the SEPRO robotic arm, were next to be demobilized.The injector unit was removed next and was transported to the CEA Facility in Laem Chabang for packing and loadout.

The heaviest components were the last to be removed, these were the 46 Tonne die head and the rear platen with ejector unit at 42 Tonnes. The team removed the tie bar cap plates after first draining the residual oil, and then by use of the cranes proceeded to slide out the four 6 Tonne Tie-Rods that connect the tie head and platen, each of these were then immediately loaded onto wooden supports and treated for rust protection.

Using special jig and tools specifically produced for this demobilization, the teams lifted both the die head and then the platen with top and tailing cranes (120t and 50t respectively). Both the die head and platen were moved into a horizontal position and loaded directly onto low bed trailers, they were then transported to the CEA facility. Upon arrival at the facility, all parts were cleaned and prepared for export. The larger parts were shrink-wrapped and loaded onto flat racks while other auxiliary parts were packed and stuffed into standard 40 ft containers. The SEPRO Robot arm was lifted into an open top container and secured in place with ratchet straps and wooden chocks. CEA Project Logistics says they completed all necessary documentation in preparation for export to Malaysia, and the entire demobilization project was completed in seven days.
