Bell establishes own welding production line with EWM
Bell Equipment Deutschland supplies 22 European countries and North America with articulated dump trucks and spare parts. Until 2018, the bins for these trucks produced in Germany came from South Africa. However, the environmental ideas rooted in the companies’ principles, as well as other reasons, led to the company establishing its own production line in Germany. This line was intended to take over the South African welding production processes with its step switch-controlled machines.
Bin production for Bell Equipment Deutschland has now been going strong since 2019. Taking the advice of Ralf Rauh, the company opted for the EWM complete solution with a total of 22 Taurus 505 Basic welding machines. The power source is similar to a step switch-controlled machine in its operation, yet, thanks to digital technology and the EWM quality, it saves a lot of energy.
Bell Equipment Deutschland can now respond to enquiries and orders more quickly and with more flexibility. It also means production is more economical and sustainable. Working with EWM, in no time Bell Equipment were able to save up to 30% on consumables and wear materials, depending on the use and workspace. In close coordination with South Africa, the company now aims to further streamline production in the coming years together with EWM.
