March 2018 - TuS Haltern youngsters at KSK

As one of the sponsors of TuS Haltern's "Talentschmiede" (talent pool), KSK hosted an information event about "Careers apart from the football pitch" for TuS Haltern's U17 footballers.

TuS Haltern, maybe Germanys best-known amateur football club, takes care of its kids' development on the pitch in an outstanding way. As one of the sponsors of TuS Haltern's "Talentschmiede" we are happy to contribute to the kids' development apart from the football pitch.

The youngsters and their manager Sebastian Amendt were invited to inform themselves on the upcoming professional live and on jobs and opportunities at KSK listening to a presentation followed by a tour through the workshop. "Most of the boys have never been to a workshop like this before. This is impressive indeed!", Amendt said. "For most of them it is yet important to get a feel for what an everyday job really means."

We are happy to continue our support of the "Talentschmiede" in the future and keep our fingers crossed for the promotion to the "Bezirksliga"!

February 2018 - Automation custom-made

"KSK Automation GmbH is specialised on user-friendly solutions for all electrotechnical requirements in the industry" - that's what our homepage says. As the following picture shows, every once in a while these requirements might be a bit unusual, too...

A German steel mill was looking for a revamp of its control station, particularly for a new operating desk and hit paydirt at KSK Automation GmbH.

The new operation desk comes in an ergonomic design and can be used sitting or standing (0,7m to 1,2m). It is equipped with a wooden table top. As our electricians at KSK Automation GmbH are always up for an unusual challenge they made the wooden table top themselves without further ado!

January 2018 - Craftsmanship in the spotlight

Amateur photographer Ulla Berse, a member of Haltern's photo club, and her camera paid a visit to our workshop in Haltern am See at the end of last year. Since lately, the results of her visit can be seen in Haltern's townhall.

Ulla Berse is a passionate photographer and knows all the technical finesses of her camera. This enthusiasm for technics was key for her extraordinary photos, which she made during her visit at KSK's workshop in Haltern am See last year.

She wanted to show that "also in green Haltern am See people carry on a craft". Berse's intention was to pint out the tension between material and men at work: "There is more life in KSK's rigid pipe constructions than you might suspect in the first plays", she says and smiles to herself. We think so, too, and are very grateful for Ulla's amazing photos, which you can also find on our homepage and on our yearly desk calendars.

December 2017 - Wire spool-in system for Christmas

At the end of 2017, general contractor KSK GmbH made itself and Deutsche Edelstahlwerke Specialty Steel GmbH & Co. KG (Witten, Germany) a nice Christmas present as we successfully commissioned a new wire spool-in system for a ladle furnace.

Mehr…

Together with the steel plant's project-/ operating- and maintenance staff, KSK was able to plan, manufacture, install and commission the newly revamped wire spool-in system for the ladle furnace. The new fourfold spool-in system allows the customer to alloy additives more precisely and with a greater diversity. Also, the entire system was further enhanced in terms of occupational safety and exhaust ventilation.

At the beginning of the project, the existing plant was captured by KSK Concept & Engineering's 3D laser scanner. On this basis, we were able to conceptualise and model the new wire spool-in system collision-free in a very confined space (incl. a new, water-cooled spool-in nozzle integrated into the ladle furnace and a telescopic tube with a bayonet shear). Also, the electrical part of the spool-in system was designed from the scratch and fitted with new switchboards and software, which was integrated into the existing system by KSK Automation.

After the revamp during the winter shutdown, the new spool-in system was finally commissioned successfully (for test operation) at the beginning of the new year.

We wish Deutsche Edelstahlwerke Specialty Steel GmbH & Co. KG success with their new fourfold wire spool-in system and gratefully acknowledge the very pleasant and fruitful collaboration!

November 2017 - Workshop full with ladle covers

Ordering a KSK ladle cover in 2017 is trendy!

2017 appears to be the year of the ladle cover. Solely in November four of these components left our workshop in Haltern am See to three different customers with different requirements, ideas and philosophies. Whether an elaborate sandwich-construction, a pipe-to-pipe construction, with or without cladding - an individual and targeted solution was found for every customer and manufactured by the specialists of our workshop.

October 2017 - KSK promotes local craftsmanship

As part of a joint promotion together with handball club HSC Haltern-Sythen we manufactured a brand new barbecue during the club's 25. anniversary .

That KSK is into heat transfer is nothing new - but when it comes to bratwurst it is different. Nevertheless, thanks to many helping hands of the HSC Handballers our premiere in barbecue manufacturing was a success. Together we prepared welded the barbecue based on an especially self-developed construction during the club's 25. anniversary. On 07.10.2017 the time finally had come and we were able to fire up the grill during a championship match of the senior team.

With this unusual sponsoring we achieved to attract local young people for the local craftsmanship and engineering in Haltern am See.
