Short project description:

The plant serves to manufacture bimetals for the sawing and cutting industries.

The soft carrier web is unwound over a reel and joined with a hard metal wire. The two materials are securely welded together using a Trumpf laser. The welded bimetal is then again wound over a reel using drawing units. The customer can specify whether the bimetal is wound straight or in a customisable pattern. After the welding process, the product is heated in a furnace to harden the material.

The sawing and cutting industry uses the hard metal side of the ribbon for a wide range of cuts and polishes (saws, knives, etc.).
