That's new


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.


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.
