A printing line for Turkey

Imagine: a KBA 4-colour printing line, professionally dismantled and shipped from Denmark to the Cazander stores in Raalte, a town in the eastern part of The Netherlands. There it is unloaded and stored for just a little while, before an interested customer comes by to inspect the line. And the customer is enthusiastic about its possibilities and decides to buy it. The selling condition is ex works, so the buyer has to arrange for the transport. Soon after, a forwarder contacts you and you give him all the necessary information.

Each printing tower is around 2.80 meter high and one of them has a width of 2.55 meter. The towers cannot be loaded in just any truck, you need the extra height and width, so the forwarder has to send apt trailers. The towers weigh between 12 and 14 tons and, as the forwarder informs you, each truck can only load a maximum of 24 tons. Can you take the risk to load two towers on one truck, even if that means a small overweight? Turkey is not that far away, so it is tempting, but the traffic rules are strict and for good reason. You discuss the matter with all parties involved and decide to stay on the safe side. This means that you need three trucks that can load 3.00 meter high and one that can load the same height but also the width of 2.55 meter. The latter means: special truck, a deep loader / low bed trailer. And that means special permits to be applied for.

The three extra high trucks come to load one after another and the cargo is neatly packed onto the trailers. Each truck has to weigh before and after loading, so that the loaded weight can be determined. Whereas the goods are stowed quickly, making out the documents absorbs a lot of time. For a container shipment, there is time enough to prepare the accompanying documents. For a truck consignment, the documents have to be handed to the driver, so they need to be impeccable. With this line come the four printing towers plus twenty five additional packages, some of them containing various parts. In perfect co-operation with the buyer, the documents are issued and the drivers can leave. A week later, the low bed trailer is sent for the final, extra wide printing tower. In no time, the last part is loaded, the documents are ready  and the driver is on his way.

Imagine: a KBA 4-colour printing line, previously employed in Denmark, then shortly stored in The Netherlands and now ready to be installed in a factory in Turkey. A solid addition to the buyer’s production process and another example of Cazander’s ability to handle large projects.

As Arnold already mentioned in the previous editorial, we have a major project in Denmark concerning used printing, lacquering and assembly lines. As customary, we have called in the help of our Polish sister team to get the work done. Whereas Cazander takes care of coordinating the whole process of buying, selling, accommodating and arranging transport, our colleagues from Poland do the actual dismantling, packaging and loading. We have had the pleasure to work with this partner company already many years and the team members do not cease to amaze us in a positive way.

 

“International teamwork is the most vital and fascinating aspect of our company”

 

Lately, in Hedensted, we had to remove a complete Mailänder 460 coating line with a 27 meter long oven, including an incinerator and two burners. For the loading, we needed ten 40 ft high cube containers, which were neatly filled with 106 parts, ranging from a box with manuals to an afterburner and from air ducts to a coater. The resourcefulness of the team is a pleasure to witness. As we usually are guests in a plant in full operation, we have to make sure that we do not block or obstruct the regular factory traffic. Our mechanics, electricians and handy men cooperate to dismantle the line and divide the parts into neatly manageable packages without much disturbance in the grounds. Forklifts and pallet trucks are used to move the parts to a storage or directly to the nearby yard to load them into containers.


Logistics

 

Our team is used to manoeuvre on the ‘square centimeter’, without hindering the factory people. The sight of two forklift drivers perpendicular to each other meticulously moving a 6 meter long burner into a container, while the truck driver is instructed to ‘slowly, slowly!’ move the container backwards, is a real pleasure. International teamwork is the most vital and fascinating aspect of our company. Sometimes the whole team is deployed to ensure the safe transfer of parts! Machines that are hardly smaller than the container opening, are loaded with absolute care and professionalism. And every bit of space is used as efficiently as possible in order to save on cost for extra containers. The self-reliance of our Polish colleagues is very high. They have a solution for every problem that occurs during  their work. Moreover, they are helpful, polite, humorous and welcoming. I look forward to our next joint operation!
