CNC VERTICAL LATHE VERTURN 1600 by KNUTH
New production level at INTERPIPE NTZ / Ukraine
Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe after Russia in terms of territory. In addition to its enormous wealth of natural resources, the main pillar of the Ukrainian economy is heavy industry, mainly steel, locomotive manufacturing and mechanical engineering. For more than ten years KNUTH Werkzeugmaschinen has been doing business in this region. “Many of the major metal-working companies are among our regular customers,” says Irina Gerdt, Sales Manager GUS at KNUTH. One of them is INTERPIPE NTZ, the third largest manufacturer of solid rolled railway wheels in the world. The company’s KLWs product portfolio includes about 240 types of railway wheels for freight and passenger cars, locomotives, and mass transportation cars. The company serves leading railway companies, such as RAFIL (Germany), or Bombardier (Great Britain). For the expansion of its production capacity, INTERNPIPE NTZ chose a Verturn 1600 CNC SIEMENS 828D by KNUTH. Currently, the company utilizes four machines for the entire machining process - from the production of blanks to finished turned railway wheels.
