Innovative thinking to maximize efficiency.
Timelines are key to equipment installation, since minimizing downtime minimizes lost production. We work closely with our clients to install equipment in the most efficient way possible. We once safely installed a new set of rolls in a paper machine while it was still rolling.
Sometimes the ideal location for a piece of equipment doesn’t come with an ideal installation route. EKT prides itself on finding safe and inventive ways to get equipment in the desired location. For example, when the roof access was inaccessible with a crane, we dismantled a picker truck and set it on a set of railway track to reach the opening. This innovative problem solving earned EKT a SR&ED grant.
