Press ballet

The order of the day was to install a press at Jehle AG in Mettauertal in the Swiss Canton of Aargau, where the Rhine separates Switzerland and Germany. The BAUBERGER team arrived at the Upper Rhine with a lot of luggage in order to unload and install a 65-ton heavy press (5 x 4.8 x 3 metres)

After setting up the hydraulic jack, the press, which was delivered horizontally on special transport, was lifted, placed onto industrial transport skates and moved to the installation site. The hydraulic jack was then also moved to the installation site and the press was lifted, turned 90 degrees and set upright. Following these rather balletic manoeuvres, the colossus was lowered with millimetre precision into its prepared foundation pit and prepared for commissioning.
