Trumpf requested two of our technicians to assist a Trumpf installation technician to remove an older existing boom and install a new Trumpf boom in its place. The technicians on site were Tom H. and Joshua D.
Removal of the old boom entailed disconnecting and or removing brake boxes to make room to back pull cables. They then had to back-pull QTY-3 electrical conduits, and QTY-2 three-wire out of boom, and coil it above ceiling. All gas hoses were disconnected and coiled above ceiling. Once this was done the old boom could be removed and re-located to the facilities dept.
Installation of the new boom was a reverse process of the removal of the old boom. We used a lift to place the new boom in place. Once that was done they were able to raise it to the ceiling and torque to the manufacturer specs. QTY-4 No. 14 Allen Screws to 100lbs. Technicians then pulled back in the QTY-3 electrical flex, QTY-12cat5, and QTY-2 DVI with heads down boom to service head. After the cable management was complete, they installed brake boxes, and covers. Gas hoses were re-connected above ceiling.
