In their planning of a new production line for transformers designed to meet future environmental demands, ABB in Vasa considered a clean and dust free environment as an important criterion.
In close co-operation with the customer Solving has developed an electric wheeled Mover receiving its power supply from onboard batteries, therefore being completely independent of hoses and cables. The battery is sized for normal driving in one shift work without charging; lifted directly off the floor the load pallet carrying a winding or core is moved to the required position. A specially-designed wheel construction divides the load evenly between the wheels and thus minimises the loading and wear to the floor.
The Mover is capable of driving long distances, over joints in the floor and into the vacuum oven with ease and precision.
