PMI-Test

Positive Material Identification

The PMI- Test is a non-destructive test to determine the content of alloying elements in steel grades. We apply for this task the spectral analysis instead of x-ray- fluorescence method because this allows us to determine e.g. the carbon content of the base-material as well.

This test, especially performed on stainless steel grades, ensures a verification of the steel grade according to the declaration on the mill certificate.

LEAN Management

LEAN order processing

In addition to high quality standards and an excellent service, we also set ourselves the task of revising our processes so that we can best take our customers’ wishes into consideration. Many customers require short lead times, as machine and plant construction are ordered at ever shorter notice. This is because complex specifications place even greater requirements on the product.

Our L E A N project started in June 2017, supported by Staufen AG, one of the leading consulting companies in the implementation of lean management transformation. We place particular emphasis on order processing, as the prerequisites for a successful order are determined long before the start of production. This procedure is accompanied by the shopfloor management.

The progress of the order and any disruptions are discussed, and measures are initiated as soon as possible. This involves all areas of the company, from the factory floor to management.

When is this process finished? Never, because it is a continuous optimisation process.

State of the art cutting technology – New Trumpf Laser

In the course of our modernization, which serves to improve the manufacturing processes, a new Trumpf laser was acquired. The machine processes large format plates (4000 mm x 2000 mm) up to a workpiece thickness of 25mm and thus allows extremely economical cutting. In addition to our standard semi-finished products such as boiler sheet metal, we can supply various other material goods now, such as Duplex on one machine, cost-effectively. Due to the state-of-the-art cutting technology, we are able to shorten our processing times and can even better respond to your needs.

A great advantage of the laser is the parallel material loading and unloading, by means of a changing table; the set-up times are reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, it is possible to leave the laser largely unattended in cutting operation, so that complicated or urgent cuts can be carried out overnight.

With this modernization, we want to serve you as our customer, even faster, and increase our quality level continuously.
