Tesla Giga Berlin reaches a new milestone in the heart of the factory with a new giant crane.
The new 100-tonne crane from Tesla Giga Berlin is already assembling the Giga Presser.
We have a rare insight into the assembly of a 100-ton internal crane in the Tesla Giga Berlin plant in the ‘Casting’ (CA) area. After a 5-day setup phase and after checking all functions, the crane immediately went into operation to assemble the Giga Presser, which will cast the unibody of the upcoming model Y electric crossover at Giga Berlin.
Giga Press is a series of aluminum die casting machines manufactured by the Idra Group in Italy. They are the largest high pressure die casting machines in the world with a clamping force of 55,000 to 61,000 kilonewtons (5,600 to 6,200 tf). Each machine weighs 410 to 430 tons.
The news came from BANG Kransystem GmbH, which published the pictures of the new giant crane in the casting area of Giga Berlin, which will form the heart of Tesla’s first European gigafactory.
We are talking about a 100-ton process crane that was assembled and approved for operation at Tesla Giga Berlin within 5 days. The two-bean bridge crane has a load capacity of 100 t on the main elevator and an auxiliary lift of 60 t. The crane immediately started its first work after approval, namely building the patented machine: Giga Press.
When small and medium-sized businesses take something into their own hands, it works. Congratulations to the team.
As you can see, Tesla Giga Berlin will have a double crane on one line. I think they should switch molds and bring materials to the melting furnaces.
