Bekaert's division Bekaert Engineering develops and implements complete factory lay-outs and production lines, thus guaranteeing the highest standards both for their clients' infrastructure and processes, and for their security issues. This is a very important competitive advantage. Throughout the years, Bekaert employees have developed quite some expertise in the domain of mechanical and electrical engineering in an international context, managing their own machinery from its design to its production, assembly and installation, up to and including its maintenance.
For two production lines, Bekaert needed a big section cable in different lengths, equipped with cable shoes and shrink sleeves. After its visit to Electrical Wiring Systems, Bekaert was immediately won over by WAAK's competences, processes and quality. Now, a few months later, we have already delivered hundreds of 95 - section flexible welding cables, which have been flawlessly implemented in the production lines. While Bekaert used to manage the production manually, the process was automated at Electrical Wiring Systems, resulting in an optimal shrink force monitoring and a nice finishing touch.
As Bekaert itself is able to supply the necessary materials, we can react in a very flexible way to their changing demands. In this way, Bekaert can also easily control the raw materials and components.
In addition to this smooth take off, a WAAK inHouse team joined forces on Bekaert's site in the beginning of June, in order to work on a prototype production line.
