M-L Holdings tasked with printing press installation

By Hannah Sundermeyer05 December 2017

A customer needed to install a new Bielloni Flexographic Printing Press in their Albuquerque, NM facility. M-L Holdings Company Crane Group and their Alternative Movement Division (AMD) were tasked with getting the press installed.

Consisting of multiple parts, the main challenge of the project was getting the top section of the press installed. At 40 feet long and 12,000 lbs., the section was delivered using a 75 ton Link-Belt hydraulic truck crane then transitioned to a roller system through the loading bay door (the only access to the facility).

The section was then maneuvered through the operational facility, and nimbly set into place using a fork lift. Overhead clearance during the final lift was a mere 6 inches.
