MTU Asia is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of large diesel engines and complete propulsion systems. Together with MTU Onsite Energy, MTU is one of the leading brands of Rolls-Royce Power Systems. Its robust and durable engines reliably propel large ships, heavy agricultural and rail vehicles and industrial applications.
The company needed a storage system which allows it to carry parts weighing 1 tonne. After a detailed analysis of the work processes, a LISTA 3-tier heavy duty pull out shelving was proposed to and accepted by the customer.
Due to the superb design, the small effort needed to pull out the laden shelf belies the heaviness of the load. Hence, training was given to the customer to ensure that they need to be constantly vigilant with the handling of parts.
To aid in the lifting the part on and off each shelf, a slewing jib crane is installed close to the shelving unit.
