Fast Track at BUTTING proves its worth

Thanks to its new production site in Könnern, BUTTING is well placed to cope with individual requirements. The additional capacities allow the family company to react far more flexibly to customer requirements than in the past. The lean processes at the Könnern site always permit deliveries very soon after the steel plate arrives. BUTTING has already succeeded in implementing the first of these so-called "fast track" orders to the customers' complete satisfaction.

Thus two pipe sizes were produced for a customer in Finland within the stipulated five-week delivery period. For the raw material, we were able to use the steel plate store of our affiliated company in Schwedt, BUTTING Anlagenbau. On the production site in Könnern, 36 m were produced in 1,016 x 8 mm size and 102 m in 813 x 6.3 mm size. Acceptance took place according to DIN EN 10217-7 TC 1. We were able to supply the additional requirement for 66 m in 456 x 3 mm size directly from our stock. Michael Fürstenberg, from CRA pipes sales, explains: "After expanding our pipe store with new ISO sizes a few months ago, we can also react more quickly and flexibly to our customers' requirements in future."

BUTTING also supplied a German customer at short notice with pipes that are destined for a project in Malaysia. The pipes had to be ready for inspection within four weeks. Steel plates for producing the pipes in 762 x 12.70 mm size were purchased via a service store. In order to send the pipes to the end customer by air freight, the lengths stipulated were 3 m. Acceptance took place according to ASTM A358 Cl. 1 and to customer-specific requirements Michael Fürstenberg: "Production of a special size in special lengths with special acceptance in a very short time: Our customer was impressed by the implementation."

Since stainless steels were first developed, the production of high-quality longitudinally welded pipes has been the focal point of our business. If longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes are required in small quantities, special sizes or from special materials, BUTTING can produce these from steel plates, not only in Knesebeck but also in Könnern.

You too should bank on BUTTING for your urgent pipe requirements in future. See for yourself how flexible we are now!
