Assembly of a 1.1-tonne pane in Ulm

Assembly of a 1.1-tonne pane in Ulm. The Heavydrive team first had to lift the pane over the building before they could fit it into its frame.

The VSG 1500 KS vacuum suction system, attached to the MRK 144 mini crawler crane, was used to suction the 5m-wide, 2.3m-high pane. Thanks to intelligent Heavydrive technology, the operator was able to accurately guide the glass element under the eaves and into the window recess.

In no time at all, the 1.1-tonne pane was securely fitted into the opening.
