This is it! It’ll soon be go-time! By the month’s end we will be moved into our new facility. We are super excited about our new home and can’t wait to settle in.
Like many of you may have done when it was time to move into your new home, we’ve been counting down. The to-do list is still lengthy but significant progress has already been made. Here and now we are at the peak of activity.
If you follow this blog, you already know our innovative radio-frequency machine (the laminator) was moved the week of January 11th. If you missed that story, click for details.
After that, pipe by pipe our 200 ft dust collection system was carefully dismantled. The large sections of metal conduit were then loaded onto flatbed trailers and transported to our Middleburg location. It took days to disassemble this system.
Timberhaven: We are moving . . .
With the piping system outlying, crews began to disassemble the 20 ft cyclone which is also part of the overall dust collection system.
What is involved in moving something of this magnitude, you ask? After careful preparation, the plan was executed with 1 crane, 2 forklifts, 3 hours, and 4 specially skilled technicians who precisely strapped the cyclone to the crane, lifted it off its metal frame and gradually transferred it from its original location to a flatbed trailer.
On the outskirts of the site, a second tractor trailer awaited our dust collection system’s bag house. A crane was also used in the transporting of this unit from its original base to the trailer.
Reconstruction of the dust collection system is currently underway at 1081 Salem Church Road, Middleburg, PA. The bag house has already been set in place and the cyclone’s new metal frame has been constructed. The cyclone will be set in place in the upcoming days.
Also forthcoming is the relocation of our 8-ton planer, in-feed, conveyor and cut lines. Stay tuned.
