“Think BIG”: An XXL investment
The new manufacturing technology for very large safety valves is the largest single investment in the history of the site. It shortens the delivery times of Type 441 safety valves from DN 250 / 10 inches on upwards.
The machining process is simulated digitally using a Digital Twin. Using CAM software (Computer-Aided Manufacturing), LESER can now automate CNC programs based on the 3D part geometry for the first time. This avoids manual steps while the digital simulation of the production process accelerates the ramp-up phase. What is more, the CNC planning processes are standardized and transparent.
