Ready for transport

The production of the dehairing machine is ready. We can look back on an amazingly beautiful period in which we were able to do what we are good at: Building machines!

We are proud to present the new machine to our customer and personally I would like to thank you for the interest shown in my articles about this project.

Production Progress follow up

Following my articles about the pig-leg dehairing machine, hereby a short update of the progress:

All welding compositions for the dehairing machine are ready now. All stainless steel parts must now be treated through staining (pickling).

Staining (pickling) after the construction phase removes chromium depleted zones and foreign iron, restores corrosion resistance and brings it back to the original level of the base material.

As a result of heat input, for example during welding, there is a discoloration caused by oxidation of the material and an excessively thick oxide skin and a chromium depleted zone. These locations offer considerably less resistance to local corrosion (chloride pitting corrosion).

In addition to the loss of corrosion resistance due to heat input, this can also be caused by iron contamination. Iron contamination of the stainless steel surface can occur as a result of sanding, grinding, setting and the like with material (tools) of carbon steel or tools that are also used for the processing of carbon steel. Contamination often occurs during handling and transport of the material.

As an experienced machine builder for the intestinal processing industry Holdijk Haamberg GmbH chooses this surface treatment because of the transparency of its products and with a view to the long term. With a stained surface, all welds remain visible so that our products maintain their robust appearance and exhibit a high degree of craftsmanship. In the long term of use, a stained surface in practice remains much nicer than, for example, a blasted surface. The pores of the surface are nicely sealed so that it remains very easy to clean and retains its beautiful, smooth appearance.

This article is an addition to my previous articles about the pig-leg dehairing machine.

The welding work is at its full height at the moment. It is a pleasure for our professionals to be able to be part of this machine building project.

The machine is completely made according to customer-specific requirements. This means that welding at Holdijk Haamberg GmbH is almost never the same and that there is a constant search for creative ways to get the job done. Our people enjoy the complete freedom to make all a success.

Following my article from 3 December 2018 about the pig-leg dehairing machine, hereby a short update of the progress:

Our workshop is on schedule with the welding work. I always find it impressive to see how our professionals deal with every machine building project with great precision and dedication.

I expect to be able to show a little more in the very short term ..

Ready for production

Ready for production

Recently our engineering department delivered all documents for a new project to our work preparation department.

In addition to all working drawings, this package includes bills of materials, laser cutting files and 3D CAD models of all items in this order. All documents are synchronized with our ERP system and stored under the article number of the relevant items.

The flagship of this order is the pig-leg dehairing machine with a diameter of 1400mm and a capacity of 550 kilograms per cycle. This machine is powered by an electric motor with a power of 22 kW!

In a few weeks the production of this machine will start at our production site in Gronau, Nordrhein Westfalen under the guidance of Ago Oliveri, our workshop manager.

I intend to follow the production closely and devote a few articles to this in the coming period.

Graduating @ Holdijk Haamberg GmbH!

Recently, ROC van Twente end-of-year student Daimy Lankheet successfully completed his practical part of the MTS course at Holdijk Haamberg GmbH in Gronau. Under the guidance of our engineers Tom Jochems and Arjan Hazelhorst, Daimy made a design for the automation of one of our machines for his graduation project. Our admiration goes to the passion with which Daimy has gone through this project. In addition to delivering a fully developed concept, he has immersed himself in the various disciplines within the Holdijk Haamberg organization. We have experienced him as a serious, modest colleague. His perseverance and flexibility will be of great use to him during his HTS continuation course and in his future career in technology.

Daimy gave his final presentation of his design at the ROC of Twente and scored an eight out of ten !!!

Dear Daimy, We wish you a lot of success with everything you will do in the future!

–         Technician Mechanical Engineering

What are your possibilities in this profession?

You can be designer of products or systems, for example appliances, installations, tools, machines and instruments. You also can lay your focus on the preparation for the production and supervise the production work. If your heart is more in the area of maintenance and sales, your commitment and field of work can have its effect worldwide. Your work area can be the workshop, production office or at location anywhere the company is operating. For example, you work as a designer, project manager, service technician, draftsman-engineer, work planner or CNC programmer.

A nice example of a fully developed project @ Holdijk Haamberg GmbH!

In our engineering department, the design of a complete gut room is started from a 2D plan prepared by our sales department in close consultation with our customer. It is always a great experience to see how a project, developed with our 3D CAD-software, has become one on one reality!
