Rotomatik 22nd Anniversary Celebration – 15 October 2019

It is the time of the year whereby Rotomatik celebrates her 22nd Anniversary at East Coast Park.

The celebration commenced with an opening speech by Mr. Poo who reported that Rotomatik Singapore has expanded in tandem with the number of projects followed by the traditional cake cutting ceremony.

It was also the time to promote Mr. Ashik as a Foreman who has over the years shown his leadership soft skills and proven his hard skills.

The organizing team decided to foster camaraderie among the staff by organising laser gun shootout. The idea was quite simple. The four teams were armed with laser guns and their mission was to shoot everyone else within a 10-minute time.

There was only one rule: shoot first, ask questions later!

And because the event was located just next to the sea, it was time to dip and cool down in the sea.

Rotomatik Singapore Participated in MRO Asia-Pacific 24 to 26 September 2019

Rotomatik with the support of LISTA AG showcased our bespoke range of workspace and storage furnishings at the Aviation MRO Exhibition held at the Singapore Expo and Exhibition Centre.

The event was organised to exhibit products and services for the maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) in the aviation industry. LISTA products are widely used in the MRO operations with leading aircraft manufacturers and premium airlines.

We wanted to exhibit specialised Swiss-made workspace and storage systems for our exacting customers.

While Rotomatik Singapore is a firm believer of using technology to plug itself into the digital world, it still holds on to the traditional Asian way of eyeball-to-eyeball meeting with existing and new customers. The exhibition therefore served as a hub where there is interaction and connection with customers.

More than 5000 professionals from the aviation industry and particularly in the maintenance, repair and operations segment attended the seminar cum exhibition event.

There were over 100 visitors to our booth and many responded positively to the build quality of LISTA products. The limelight product was the LISTA Electronic Control system which has the flexibility to control access to either the entire cabinet, individual drawers or drawer compartments thereby managing security access. It is something that is quite unique in this part of the world.

Rotomatik Singapore and LISTA AG wish to thank all visitors for taking the time to view our products and to chat with us.

Clean Energy Supply Chain

Climate change concerns have become more pervasive in almost every corner of the world. The management of Rotomatik Singapore has taken the challenge to reduce carbon footprint by being part of the environmental friendly supply chain.

Rotomatik Singapore is honoured to be given a vital role in the renewable energy chain in REC Solar Pte Ltd in Singapore.

The customer is a technology provider and production of solar energy solutions. In the Singapore plant, Rotomatik Singapore has to offer a lifting solution to handle materials when there is a constraint on the lifting height.

Rotomatik Singapore designed the crane to push it as close as possible to the ceiling. And to further increase the lifting height, an extra low-headroom electric chain hoist was used, thereby fulfilling the customer’s material handling requirements.

Overhead travelling cranes using the STAHL CraneSystems STK series Extra Short Headroom electric chain hoist was the optimal solution needed for its production lines at its Tuas South plant. The mere 185mm headroom for the 1.6 ton and 3.2 ton versions of the hoists were chosen to fit into the very low 4m ceiling and up to 3.5m high lifting height requirements of the setup. The unique design also enables loads to be lifted steadily and without swinging.

A Unique Rotomatik 3-Chain Hoist Crane for SBS Transit Train Depot at Gali Batu

MRT depots carry out a plethora of engineering & technical tasks. One of the most critical ones is the maintenance of axles which is to be done in a wheel press system. In order to perform the maintenance work, train engineers need to heft and / or lower the axles with the help of a crane system.

Rotomatik has had the advantage of designing, installing and integrating such crane systems as part of the wheel press system in other depots. Based on its records, Rotomatik was able to rise to the challenge of engineering the system as specified by SBS Transit.

The wheel press machine is specially used for mounting and dismounting of the components of the axle such as wheel sets, brakes discs, bearings and gearboxes of rail rolling stocks.

Due to the construct of the MRT train axle, Rotomatik designed a single girder crane using not one but three chain hoists which operate either independently or in tandem.

The hoists are used to lift and / or lower the axles to the various jigs to facilitate the inspection and maintenance of the axle elements. The rail engineer can use either hoist “B” by itself i.e. 3.2 ton or hoist “A” & “C” together i.e. 1.6t + 1.6t. These are controlled by a smart pendant switch which controls both

lifting, cross travelling and long travelling.

For safety reasons, an anti-collision system is installed to keep the hoists from colliding with each other to prevent accidents.
