The first two orders for the newly developed gas-fuelled heater facilities with hot shears were placed by Aluminium Menziken from Switzerland.
Further facilities and newly designed water quench system
A total of 8 orders for new gas-fuelled heaters were placed in the course of the year (2 x Aluminium Menziken, Thöni from Austria, 2 x ASAS from Turkey, Purso and Nordic Aluminium from Finland, and FW Brökelmann from Germany). We also received our first order for a newly designed water quench system for intensive and extremely flexible cooling of AL extrusion profiles by Honsel (now Hammerer Industries Germany) in Soest.
Sales for 2007 are already more than twice as much as in the previous year.
