Premium machine park
247TailorSteel started with 2 Trumpf 5-kW laser machines in 2007. Today, we use 31 TRUMPF flatbed lasers, 6 Adige tube laser cutting machines, 20 ToolCell bending machines, and 4 deburring machines; 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Meanwhile, we produce out of three locations; Varsseveld, Oyten (GER) and Hilden (GER).
Various AGV systems transport different types of plate material to the laser cutting machine loading stations, which automatically loads and unloads the plates. The cutting dimensions are generated directly from your order. This system is not only quick and flexible but is also extremely efficient.
Energy-efficient production processes
Energy consumption at 247TailorSteel is significantly lower than that of other laser cutting facilities. The recent development of a nesting technique for processing multiple orders also significantly reduces the amount of wasted material. As a result, 247TailorSteel can offer top-quality sheet steel laser customizations.
Smart Bending Factory
247TailorSteel is part of the ‘Smart Bending Factory’ field lab, in which an ultramodern, physical metal machining factory is set up. In this factory, companies can share knowledge, experience, and resources for the joint operation of machining processes.
