Industrial rigging is an important part of the moving process. It can be one of the most dangerous phases of any large-scale commercial construction project. Professional riggers are needed to safely lift and move unusual objects which can be heavy and oversized.
Using a combination of equipment, riggers frequently relocate items such as:
- Stamping Presses
- IMM and BMM
- Weld Cells
- Robotic Cells
- Assembly Lines
- Machining Equipment
- Structural Steel
- Layout and aligning
- Equipment rebuild
- HVAC Systems
The best rigging team understands the equipment being used, the full scope of the project and proper safety practices. Below are some things to consider when looking to hire a rigging contractor.
