Handling of centrifugal pumps over a single girder rail

The purpose of this project was to handle centrifugal pumps during the verifying tests in the assembly line and to put them into the cardboard box used for storage and final shipment.

A metal structure was designed to support a single girder with a 125 kg electric hoist. A special tool was made to hold the pump and release it safely. Such tool was expressly designed for this application, in which three different pump models are involved.
