Load Moving Skate machine repair – ‘Emotion 24’
We had a telephone call at the weekend asking us if we could make a repair to a ‘Moving Skate’ Robotic system and they had no idea what was wrong with it.
This was urgent. An ‘Emotion 24’ is a remote controlled robot which carries 24 tonnes machinery from one place to another. (As long as the ground is smooth).
HTS (Hydraulic Transport Systems) is a company which provides a range of tailor-made solutions from special load moving systems or jacking solutions to skates with integrated lifting solution or synchronous lifting systems. Even when it comes to applications within production lines, HTS design and manufactures optimal transport equipment.
So, on this occasion this was Option 1 :
Fly the product back to Germany which was going to cost more than £600 and a minimum of of a 2 week turnaround. Other costs would be added.
…..was that luckily one of their employees had googled us and found that we might be able to help.
The situation was that their customer wanted their Robotic skate that was not working properly as they needed to move heavy substation machinery that was being delivered in two days time and they were being left outside their premises and needed to get moved.
Thankfully we were able to quote, take on the Robot on Monday and repair it within a few hours. Option 2 was the winner Mark at HTS has a happy customer that has managed to move the heavy equipment in a day rather than a week.
Pleased to confirm that they WILL be using Greasley Electronics in the future for their robotic machine repairs.
