Substantial investments at De Boer Snijbedrijf / De Boer Staal

De Boer Snijbedrijf has very recently put the Plasma 2.0 investment program into operation. In addition to modifications to the cutting hall (overhead cranes, etc.), it was decided to expand the existing plasma cutting capacity (Koike Versagraph 6000 / 400A) with another 2 Koike plasma cutting machines type Deltatex 5500. The rail length of 30m per machine ensures a cutting table of 3.1 x 24.7 m. Both machines are equipped with the latest 3D plasma cutting technology Koike SmartBevel® with Kjellberg plasma power sources of 360A and 280A. For marking, REA Jet DOD Matrix printers were chosen on both machines for generating QR and barcodes, among other things. In addition to the extra oxy-fuel torch (up to 150 mm) on the 280A machine, both machines are equipped with HERR cutting tables and 12,000 m3 / hour dust filters. The cutting process is controlled by Sigmanest software.

Both installations will be delivered and installed in Q4.
