Ear and Button welders
Arplas Welding recently signed an agreement with Axoll in Holland for the production of ear welders, button welders, and other accessory welders for drum and tin plate container manufacturing.
When Arplas Welding took over all activities from Arplas International in Amersfoort Holland, we were only focused on longitudinal drum welding machines. This machine is now successful sold in the market, and because of this reason Arplas considered the time ready to start efforts in the field of drum accessory welders as well as tin plate ear and button welders.
As we do not have the capacity to build this type of welder, it was needed for us to look for a reliable partner to do this for us.
Arplas looked to and talked to different companies in and outside of Europe, but finally found a match in Axoll, based in Putte, in Holland.
Axoll is a company coming out of Artec, and is manned by a number of former Arplas International employees. It is a young and very dynamic company, highly specialized in industrial automation, and with a basic knowledge of welding.
A marriage to Arplas welding gives Axoll the extra know how on level of welding to successfully design and produce welders for welding ears to pail tops, to pail or drum sides, and buttons to pails. Also other welders such as Chime band welders and ring welders are part of the deal.
The success has already been granted by one of our customers as a first project to weld handles to tops of pails has been sold.
This pilot project will probably be followed soon by a second one we are working on at this moment.
All machines produced today will anyhow be totally redesigned to match the today\\\'s requirements of our customers. We will not base our welder designs on the old Arplas International design.
If you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
