Continuous Jacking System

Content

In cooperation with certifying bodies and knowledge institutions, Bosch Rexroth has developed new standards and innovative solutions that tackle the problem of fatigue risks, resulting from the high demands. The advanced control system is characterised by a tight control of accelerations, decelerations, parallel and opposite cylinder motions, smooth transfer of the high loads and an automatic four quadrant process, in which the system automatically switches from leg lowering to platform lifting operation and vice versa. A constant jacking speed of 1 m/min and higher is the result. Additionally, specifically integrated features lead to more reliability, safer operations and a considerable reduction of required power.

 

Cylinder Integrated Measuring System (CIMS)

The jacking cylinders are equipped with CIMS (Ceramic Integrated Measuring System), which provides a most accurate signal required by the control system to evaluate the status of the system in relation to the precision, motion pattern and levelling of the vessel or platform. The cylinder rods are protected by a ceramic coating that is suitable for harsh environment conditions.
