Expanding and modernising watt drive machinery

Expanding and modernising watt drive machinery
WEG has recently competed a major investment in the modernisation of machinery at its subsidiary Watt Drive Antriebstechnik in Markt Piesting, Austria. In an initial step, the Austrian gearbox specialist has taken delivery of a new €1.1m production machine. Installation took place in early August 2018 in spectacular fashion (video) with the use of the world's most powerful all-terrain crane, the Demag AC 1000-9, which has a carrying capacity of 1,200 tonnes.
