The Chang’e-5 moon mission was a challenge of historic proportions. Extreme working conditions - such as ambient temperatures of down to -30° Celsius - made the recovery of the space probe an extraordinary operation, even for our loader crane.
SOLUTION
Robustness and reliability - two of the biggest strengths of our PK 19000. With a precisely coordinated procedure and excellent stability, the loader crane successfully secured the space probe and was thus able to contribute to this successful space expedition.

COVID-19 has led to significant restrictions worldwide, including the education sector. For ten PALFINGER welding technicians from Rudong, China the final apprenticeship examinations took place in summer 2020. However the travel restrictions at this time made it impossible for the responsible examination board to travel to China.
SOLUTION
Together with WIFI International, PALFINGER initiated the first digital final apprenticeship exams. The practical part of the exam was held in Rudong and monitored virtually from Salzburg using the PALFINGER Smart Eye. This tool is usually used for service activities, but in this case it was the perfect solution and enabled the exams to be held successfully.
