Ficep announces new welding partnership
Steel machinery equipment manufacturer Ficep has announced an exclusive partnership in the UK with Austrian company Zeman Bauelemente Produktionsgesellschaft to supply automated welding equipment to steelwork contractors.
The new partnership includes a deal to supply Zeman’s advanced automated plate component sorting storage system – the SPS. The system automatically picks fittings produced from thermal plate processing machinery and allows each part to be accurately scanned by laser for size.
The system automatically recognises the part identity, picks it up with a robot and transfers it to a storage system, with up to 40 bins depending on contract, job, or processing requirements.
With the additional ability to allocate bins to the required location or fabrication bench within a factory and completely track the process, Ficep says it is a system which could transform plate processing operations in steel service centres and steel fabrication companies.
Ficep UK Managing Director Mark Jones said: “Both our existing and new customers now have access to an unrivalled range of steel fabrication machines that will improve their productivity, reduce costs and improve quality, production capability and processes in steel fabrication.
“The overall plan is to provide fully automated factories for the future with our technological expertise and innovation for the steel industry.”
Ficep will be hosting a Zeman open house from the 20th to 28th of May. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
