Integration of a modern „State of the Art“ technology into an existing tube production plant The significantly increased requirements of the market induced the tube manufacturing companies to react more and more rapidly and flexibly. In order to achieve e.g. higher product qualities, capital investment in modern technologies is required what, however, often cannot be realized at all or with difficulties only. In many cases this is related to the fact that a completely new and therefore costintensive equipment is projected, for example for the tube manufacturing. Not infrequently, however, it would be sufficient to replace the most important components within a line in order to fulfill the increased requirements, while the existing appropriate transportation or handling equipment can mostly be used together with new “State of the Art” machines. Bültmann takes advantage of this approach and offers the custom-fit integration of new, modern machines into existing lines. As a rule, the beginning is an individual engineering, optimally tailored to the customer’s requirements, resulting in the implementation and commissioning of the new machinery interlinked with the existing equipment. Not to be forgotten the connection of the control systems with the local manufacturing execution system. For example, this was done just now when supplying a 10-roll tube straightening machine to one of the largest steel tube manufacturers in Germany. The advantage for the customer is obvious: Maximum economic benefit at lowest investment volume. We look forward to offering you advice regarding your individual application. Please contact us!
