News: Lathe extension
Scana Steel is extending a frequently used lathe for improved capabilities. The extension is supporting the customer segment with medium long shafts and components with length up to 14,5m.
”We really needed this extension from 12m to 14,5m says production director Peter Harnesk. ”By doing this extension we can turn many shafts which otherwise would have been machined in our bottle neck, the 24m long lathe. Now we can free up capacity there and get a higher total throughput, in line with our sales targets”.
The extension is on-going and anticipated to be completed by 21 Dec, 2017
