Mantsinen Group Ltd Strengthens Production with PEMA Welding Station
Mantsinen Group continues growing their production capacity according to their business strategy. Now Mantsinen has purchased PEMA MIG/MAG welding automation station for boom welding of their material handlers.
Mantsinen Group Ltd Oy manufactures efficient and safe material handlers, lifting equipment and log handlers. Mantsinen equipment varies from 50 tons to 200 tons, and their users require absolute durability and reliability. Mantsinen machines are manufactured in Finland and the new welding station increases considerably the factory capacity.
Mantsinen has made a long and extensive work in developing their products to be of high quality and to reach shorter through-put times and thus getting more equipment to customers.
The company has used previously PEMA positioners and heavy material handling equipment. They are utilized in manual welding and at the welding station in sub arc welding.
The company Mantsinen has gained good results in using handling units, but now it became time to take a step forward in production development and to invest in production increase by automating the welding process with a robotized station. They took serious consideration and spent some time when surveying benefits of the investment and running the bidding process. Finally, Mantsinen Group decided to invest in PEMA MIG/MAG robotized station for welding of the upper structures of the material handlers dumpers. “The welding station was purchased to increase our productivity, quality and throughput time – these are the main factors for us,” says Mr. Jaakko Junninen, Production Manager of Mantsinen Group.
”We do a lot of heavy welding, which strains the health of welders. It makes a big deal to ease the stress of our workers,” Mr. Junninen explains. “Ever tightening competition on the market and cost-pushes helped the decision making of the investment, but upgrading quality of the welding and better working conditions were not less important facts when making up our minds.”
”The deposition rate will decrease when we can optimize the welds and minimize throat thicknesses when doing all automatically. We have a target to split the total welding time into a half,” Mr. Junninen continues, ”To our customers this means shorter delivery times.”
In order to get the most benefits of the investment in the production, Pemamek delivers together with the welding station a ready-made PEMA WeldControl program for welding a 120 ton frame of the material handler. The welding could be started right away after the assembly and new offline programs can be set simultaneously for welding of other big frames (max. 30.000 kg). Additionally Pemamek provided Mantsinen with training and production support for three weeks and an operator training for PEMA WeldControl 300 offline program.
Mantsinen Group is a family owned business and the company has a strategy of developing in a long perspective. Investments are made to production equipment and R&D.
