Expansion of the various processing options

In addition to longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes for industrial applications, BUTTING manufactures customised parts. These include components and ready-to-install products with special features in relation to surfaces, tolerances, machining and laser processing. To expand production capacities, BUTTING has invested in another lathe.

For years BUTTING has been seen as a reliable supplier of special ready-for-installation products and precision components. "More than pipes" means for BUTTING the further processing of pipes or plates into a new, customised product by means of joining, cutting, forming, surface technology and mechanical processing. Equipped with modern 3D laser technology, robot welding technology, forming, grinding and CNC-turning and milling technology, the production centre works at the highest technical level. With appropriate investment, we significantly expanded the existing product and service portfolio at our production centre in Knesebeck.

For example, a machining centre was recently acquired, which is equipped with a main and counter spindle and two overhead tool turrets. It allows two-sided machining, which significantly reduces machining times. In the future, components with lengths of up to 3 000 mm and a maximum turning diameter of 700 mm can be processed on this machine. In addition, the machine has a C- and a Y-axis, for example to perform off-centre milling or component lettering. Ergonomic workplace design and employee safety were our priorities during machine selection and the decision for integrated fit-in support.

"The investments open up new possibilities: we have extended our product range and will thus be able to satisfy growing customer demands. This is how we implement special product requirements in series quickly, economically and reliably", explains Henning Bohne, Head of Cutting Technology.

Jörg Pollmann, Sales Manager Customised Components, adds: "By combining a variety of production processes and product manufacturing process applications, we can implement cost-effective and customised total solutions to the highest quality standards."
