Lantek reinforces its OEM collaboration policy -Open systems the route to the Smart Factory-

Lantek has been a leader in the sheet metal industry for 35 years and one of the key activities it has been working on since its inception is collaboration and support for OEM machine tool manufacturers in the sector. Not only has this collaboration helped OEMs to solve technological problems, optimising the functionality and performance of their machines, but it has also enabled sheet metal manufacturing companies to take advantage of these new techniques, boosting productivity and reducing costs.

Heavy and light boilerworks, solutions for the HVAC, oil or gas sector

From the Latin, patella, which is a large round metal pot or vessel, boilermaking (pailería, in Spanish) or boilerworks is a technique used for cutting and joining pieces of metal or sheet metal in order to produce metallic deposits to store and/or transport materials, be they solids, liquids or gasses. They tend to be large pieces which are shaped and welded with other smaller ones. The process uses techniques such as mapping, straightening, cutting and welding for plates, tubes and profiles.

Innovation in the production of tubes and piping parts

Transporting water, protecting cables, channeling energy... There are round ones, square ones, rectangular ones or open profiles. They’re everywhere, from electrical appliances to awnings, including canopies, trailers or all types of machinery for the industrial sector. They are also manufactured in different materials, but the one we’re interested in is metal. For some time now, the tube manufacturing industry has been playing an increasingly central role in the plants, ceasing to be a complimentary and limited activity to become a large-volume production which incorporates complex structures and assemblies thanks to the improvements introduced in cutting machines and benders.
