The visit marked the presentation of a dual servo blanking line for steel and aluminium.
Mr. Edward Favorite and Mr. Francisco De los Santos, directors of Steel Technologies visited our Mondragon plant to attend the presentation of a highly automated modern dual servo blanking line for steel and aluminium, as well as the stacked steel/aluminium test bench. Steel Technologies is a joint venture between Nucor and Mitsui that has more than 25 service centres throughout the USA, Canada and Mexico. It is the industry leader in steel processing in the USA, with a turnover of more than 2 billion dollars. The American executives were also able to see the prototype of a laser blanking line completed by FAGOR ARRASATE, which will be added to a production line during 2017.
Mr. Favorite and Mr. De los Santos were very satisfied with the high level of know-how at Fagor Arrasate and were pleasantly surprised by the number of machines currently being manufactured by Fagor.
The visit was completed by a trip to see one of our steel and aluminium blanking line the facilities of our client Gonvauto in Barcelona.
