News from the market leader for melting and dosing furnaces
StrikoWestofen presents new Westomat series and control at the Euroguss 2014 in Nuremberg
Efficiency, process reliability and ease of operation: at the Euroguss 2014, the StrikoWestofen Group (Gummersbach, Germany) will present its completely redesigned Westomat dosing furnace with the new “ProDos 3” control system. “Constant model upgrading and options developed according to customer requirements have made our Westomat series a worldwide benchmark for economical and process reliable dosing systems. Our latest development raises the standard, in particular with regard to simplified setup and operation,” promises StrikoWestofen manager Rudolf Riedel. The Euroguss 2014 in Nuremberg from 14 to 16 January will see the market leader present the latest technologies for melting furnaces and dosing systems to interested experts from the light metal casting industry at booth 354 in Hall 7.
Convincing products, convincing service: these benefits have now led to a major new contract for the StrikoWestofen Group (Gummersbach, Germany). Up to 2014, the renowned manufacturer of thermal processing technology will be in charge of the refractory lining and modernization of a total of 14 Westomat dosing furnaces operated by the AE-Group (Gerstungen, Germany). “After operation periods of up to 17 years, it has now become necessary to reline the existing systems,” explains Holger Stephan, manager of the Service und Spare Parts department at StrikoWestofen. “Extensive measurements and thermographs allowed us to identify additional opportunities for optimizing the refractory design. In the context of a comprehensive modernization, we will reduce the energy consumption by up to five percent.”
