Inhouse fair 10. April 2014

May 16.14

Introduction of our new production line for large-diameter heads

The 3rd KÖNIG + CO. inhouse fair – after 2010 and 2008 – gave opportunity to about 120 guests from Germany and abroad to inform about our latest investment. During an impressive live performance they received a first view of the technical feasibilities: our new production line for large-diameter heads enables us now to form heads with single weights of up to 30 tons and diameters of up to 8000 mm. 

Besides the practical part of the inhouse fair, well-known specialists spoke all about Duplex steels: as Dr. Ladwein, Professor at university of Aalen, he held a speech about “Ferritic/Austenitic Duplex Steels”. Furthermore, we welcomed Mr. Eickmanns and Dr. Beckers from Outokumpu who talked about “History and Trends of Duplex Steels, Technical Progress and New Developments”. Two engineers of ESAB group, Mr. Torchiana and Mr. Paschold, spoke about Duplex steels from their part of view: “Technologies for Submerged Arc Welding of Stainless Steels” 

In addition to theory and practice, some well-known companies of the Siegerland, in particular those which constructed our new production line, informed about their production range in an exhibition tent.

Last but not least our inhouse fair provides a forum for discussions, for creating new and deepening existing contacts. Positive reactions of our guests already during this event confirmed us to continue the tradition of inhouse fairs also in future.
