Case: Albert Knoblinger GmbH & Co. KG The easy and quick way to the required weld seam with the SpeedPulse-XT.

Simple operating concept and excellent welding properties stand out at Knoblinger.

Albert Knoblinger GmbH & Co: KG, based in Ried in the Innviertel region of Upper Austria, has been established in bulk materials plant engineering for decades. The range of services offered by the owner-managed family-owned company with about 80 employees extends from consulting, planning, and design to production and assembly, right through to servicing of the systems. The product portfolio includes plant components for sawmills and chipboard manufacturers as well as scraper and screw conveyors and turnkey wood pelleting plants with an hourly capacity of up to 40 tons. Welding is a core process in the company. More than 20 welding machines are used in its production. Welding units from three popular manufacturers were tested by the company’s own welders in the course of a new investment. The highest priority for selection was that the welders were to be able to achieve the required welding results without much effort and, above all, quickly from the first workpiece. Lorch’s S-series SpeedPulse XT has won out: The extremely simple operating concept of the SpeedPulse-XT was particularly convincing in combination with best welding properties.

“The welding results of the devices compared were virtually identical. Lorch was ahead in the terms of time required for adjustments and welding. After half a year of practical experience with the Lorch devices, our welders continue to be perfectly convinced by the operating concept. That’s the essential factor for us.”
