Kaltenbach machine during test run and visit

Kaltenbach KBS620-KD615 system demonstration for sawing and drilling sectional steel.

Nothing beats gathering practical impressions on site. This was also the opinion of the teachers of the 8th grade of the Geschwister-Scholl secondary school in Vechta when they planned a visit to the Gellhaus steel construction company with their students. As a special highlight, the young visitors witnessed the commissioning or user training of an impressive new saw drill line system. The machine technicians from Nenok in Cologne even made a quick test run possible, allowing the guests to experience first-hand how much power but also how much innovative technology is contained in such a system.

The Kaltenbach KBS620-KD615 is a computer (CNC) controlled saw drill line combination with material transport system for sawing and drilling sectional steel and flat steel. The company, located in Vechta (Lower Saxony), is known as a reliable steel fabricator and vehicle builder with special expertise.

Due to the high capacity utilization of the steel construction production and the ever increasing pressure for cheaper and faster delivery of steel construction production, it was an urgent necessity to invest in the acquisition of a new CNC-controlled system.

Through the contact to Nenok as a special supplier of steel construction machines, this extensive project could be realized within a very short time. The requirement for Nenok as a used machine specialist from Cologne was first of all the search for a structurally and technically suitable plant, which should then also be available at short notice in order to enable a quick realization. Once a suitable machine had been found, it first had to be professionally dismantled at its old location and then serviced and overhauled for its new use. This was followed by prompt heavy transport with two semi-trailers to Vechta and subsequent assembly and commissioning. Thanks to the good help of the employees of Gellhaus and the boss himself, it was possible to integrate the urgently needed machine into the production of steel profiles after only a short time.

The opportunity of such a visit is certainly not only an interesting experience for young people, but also definitely represents a benefit for local companies in the region, which are known to have a high demand for good skilled workers. And this need will certainly grow in the future. In this respect, it can only be positive if good contacts with the Gellhaus company make a technical environment an attractive option in later career planning.
