Schoeller Werk invests in new high performance sawing centre
by David Fleschen
Schoeller Werk continues the gradual modernisation of its machinery: the specialist for longitudinally welded stainless steel tubes has invested in another high performance sawing centre. Among others, a system for tube end machining is integrated in the new sawing cell. Schoeller Werk customers thus receive all machining steps from a single source.
Schoeller Werk is constantly upgrading its machinery to continue meeting the permanently growing demand for longitudinally welded or redrawn stainless steel tubes now and also in the future. The new high performance sawing centre by Rattunde is specially rated to the high demands of the automotive industry. The system is deployed particularly for producing conduit and fuel tubes made of stainless steel. Schoeller Werk uses the system to process tubes of diameters between eight and ten millimetres.
Integrated tube end machining system
The highlight of the new high performance sawing centre is the integrated system for machining and checking tube ends. A high performance saw cuts the tubes and then brings them to the tube end machining centre with test and monitoring section. This is followed by a double wash with drying and fully automatic packing. All process steps are consolidated in a brief cycle in one cell for producing large quantities in the shortest possible production time. The new high performance sawing centre adds end machining to the value creation chain at Schoeller Werk. As a result, the company now supplies all necessary machining steps together with longitudinally welded stainless tubes, all from a single source.
