Company expands manufacturing capabilities to meet growing demand for waste-recycling equipment
BAVARIAN materials handling equipment manufacturers Sennebogen are addressing the growing demand for specialized waste-handling machines in the recycling market by expanding their production capabilities in Hungary.
The company has opened a new state-of-the-art steel components factory – known as Termelés-Logistic-Centrum (TLC) – in Litér, which is about 30min drive from Sennebogen’s first Hungarian steel plant in Balatonfüred.
With a floor area of 29,000 sq m, the latest Sennebogen facility will specialize in the production of medium and heavy welded steel structures for machinery. The new plant – which has taken over two years to develop – can produce a maximum 20,000 tonnes of steel structures a year, with components measuring up to 30m in length and weighing 25 tonnes.
As well as increased capacity thanks to the expanded factory area, the new steel parts plant will also provide high throughput, increased warehousing, better work preparation, and feature the latest machine tools and modern machining centres for mechanical processing and flame/laser cutting.
Strengthening their commitment to combating climate change, Sennebogen say sustainability was a major focus in the new plant’s design. For example, the factory is equipped with a photovoltaic system with an output of 2.4MW, so that it will be energy self-sufficient with the electrical power generated from the PV system.
The office building is also heated with energy-efficient underfloor heating whilst the production hall benefits from low-temperature heating via concrete core activation.
