Customer: Vogel-Bauer, Solingen / Germany
Our biggest joint project with B+S to date has been the installation and start-up in the spring of 2006, of ourType Q1000/60/3,0-30/47 cut-to-length line. There is no doubt that the customization of this adjusting line has a double meaning, because in the planning stage the Burghardt + Schmidt design engineers had to make sure that on the one hand the line would fit on the base of a one-time slitting line, and on the other hand that the special demands of our newly acquired customer were met.
This really was not an easy undertaking! In the end the experienced B+S design engineers had to make numerous technical adjustments – including during the installation phase and the start up. It became perfectly clear that we had not only chosen the right cut-to-length line supplier but that we had also found an ally in our endeavour to reach the quality- and business goals we envisoned for this investment.
After three years of continuous operation our Stainless Steel Service Centre has at its disposal a cut-to-length line that undoubtedly will continue to be state-of-the-art for a long time to come. Our past decision to settle on a high performance Burghardt + Schmidt line with quick cassette changing device has been proven absolutely right. In the shortest time possible levelling cassettes with diameters of 30 and 47 mm can be exchanged. This enables us to achieve flatness levelling results over the whole product range, which, in our stainless steel sheet production extends from 0,30 to 3,00 mm.
The demand for precision cut sheets is growing and we can comply with our clientele’s requests for the smallest tolerances in shape and size. In addition, with the vacuum stacker situated at the outlet of the line, the sheets are stacked perfectly straight. What more could one want?
The precision of our sheets has enabled us to render valuable service to numerous well-known stainless steel users. This creates long-term business connections that ensure the continued success of our operation. Since we are loyal to our suppliers it follows that we will turn to the experts at Burghardt + Schmidt for any further attention the adjusting line may need. We wish Burghardt + Schmidt the best of (shared) success in the future.
