Reinforcing Mesh Production of the Future

Have you ever wondered how the production of reinforcing mesh might look like in the future? Would you like to keep making profits form reinforcing mesh production, even if the lot sizes turn smaller and the product range larger?
Schlatter is moving the mesh production to a whole new level. An annual production of 80-100 thousand tons are being manufactured by only two mesh welding machines, and this despite the uncountable variants of mesh types with many different wire diameters.
This can only be done by using the optimised high efficiency MG316 mesh welding machine and the newly developed highly flexible but high performance MG800 mesh welding machine. This combination allows flexible production development and, nevertheless, low processing costs.
The conventional mesh production will be revolutionised by this “new level” concept. The production quantities of 3 or even 4 machines can now be realised with only two mesh welding machines. The considerable reduction of changeover and reel exchange times has increased the effective production time of the machinery by up to 50 %.
Fewer machines means a reduction in personnel, maintenance and energy costs. At the same time, space requirements and spare part inventory, which always involve major capital commitment, are decreasing significantly.
With the highly productive MG316d the mass products can be manufactured at a capacity of 200 cross wires per minute. The welding machine, equipped with direct welding groups, produces on the highest quality level and does not need resetting in the welding portal sector.
Therefore, short-term mesh orders will not pose any problems at all any more. The new and highly flexible MG800 can change over to a different mesh type with a minor production stop of 30 seconds maximum. There are no more compromises to be addressed regarding production output. With 150 cross wires per minute, the MG800 operates in a capacity range of a standard mesh welding machine.
The machine’s flexibility cuts down the stock capacity significantly, while the net working capital (NWC) and the storage area decrease. In addition, the purchasing risk due to fluctuating steel prices is easier to manage.
