Dosing and mixing plant
New dosing and mixing plant installed at VAUTID factory in Wendlingen
June 2019 saw the start of installation and commissioning of a new dosing and mixing plant at the VAUTID factory in Wendlingen. The formulations of individual VAUTID products are currently being entered into the plant´s control system. Trial runs are being undertaken to ensure optimal results, where mix ratios perfectly match material recipes.
The new high-speed plant has a capacity of over 6,000 metric tons per year. Operating as a closed system, a computer-controlled process doses raw materials in gram-accurate amounts for mechanically bonding with base materials to achieve a fully homogenous hardfacing material or material concentrate. The resulting VAUTID ADD material is a perfect example of the consistent high quality of VAUTID products.
The new plant includes a recirculating vacuum air filtration system with a hot air return facility. This increases our contribution to environmental protection and improves process reliability at the same time. And it guarantees the continuing protection and improves process reliability at the same time. And it guarantees the continuing high quality of the hard-facing materials and wear plates offered by VAUTID GROUP throughout our global operations.
It ensures a consistency in product quality not only in our factories in Germany, but also at our subsidiary companies abroad. These also benefit from new technology, and they offer a uniform standard quality which matches that of our German sites.
This investment in plant capacity and technology demonstrates VAUTID´s commitment to our production sites in Germany – not just for now, but for the future as well.
