Invest for the long term
"Although Neoflam was initially interested in a ladle system, it was convinced by the Westomat's high energy efficiency and significantly lower operating costs,“ explains Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of StrikoWestofen Asia. "Compared to the casting ladle system, the dosing furnace impresses with a considerably higher smelting quality, low metal loss and low energy consumption."
In addition, foundries benefit from the durability of the Westomat and the very little effort needed to be expended in cleaning it. The dosing system optimises the continuous processes, thus ensuring constant availability of the system. The investment costs pay off for Neoflam within just two years.
Service offer on location
An additional purchase argument for Neoflam was StrikoWestofen's extensive range of local services with training sessions, technical support, a repair and maintenance service, a hotline and spare part supply. This allows the foundries to operate their plants free of disruptions, with the highest productivity.
"With the speed and high technical expertise of our service team, we can stand out clearly from the competition. And when required, we mostly deliver original parts for our products ex works, at local level," says Rudi Riedel, Managing Director of the StrikoWestofen Group. Even though Neoflam has only just successfully commissioned the seven new dosing furnaces, the leading pots and pans manufacturer is already negotiating with StrikoWestofen regarding a second helping: more StrikoMelter and Westomat furnaces.
