More welding productivity with Kemppi’s SuperSnake sub-feeder

Klöckner Siebmaschinen made working on large components easy and flexible with Kemppi's SuperSnake sub-feeder that guarantees reliable wire feed assist over long distances. The FastMig welding equipment increased welding productivity even further by saving about two hours per component as less finishing work was needed. 

Klöckner Siebmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG is known by their customers as the “fire department of screening technology”. Klöckner responds to customer requests with tailored, innovative solutions and guarantees support on short notice. Even in emergencies, their customers can rely on the company’s rental depot of screening machines.

Klöckner has over 35 years of company history that is built on strong expertise. Klöckner was founded in 1980 as a small fitter’s shop and steel construction company in Dorsten, Germany, and it has grown into a well-known screening machine manufacturer in the last 20 years. Since 2011, Klöckner has been managed by the family’s second generation, Jasmin and Alexander Klöckner.

As the costs for landfilling and recycling of excavated soil and construction waste increase steadily, construction companies are forced to look for low-cost processing technology – especially in screening technology. This has guaranteed Klöckner full order books in recent years and ultimately motivated the company’s expansion to a 1,250 m² production area in Raesfeld, Germany.

Main challenge

Klöckner manufactures screening machines for all areas of business where solid mixtures need to be separated into different particle sizes. The material can be, for example, rubble, road salt or excavated soil. Screening machines are manufactured at five welding stations. The challenge with these large components is their height, which can be a major obstacle during welding.

Kemppi's solution

Klöckner uses two water-cooled FastMig X systems and one water-cooled FastMig M system. All welding machines are equipped with Kemppi’s SuperSnake sub-feeder which provides great work assistance and thus increases productivity. This unique equipment can bridge long distances of up to 30 m between MIG guns and wire feeders while working on various materials (Fe, SS, Al). Its sturdy and slim profile allows the SuperSnake to easily follow welders into the narrowest areas.

Klöckner uses 10-meter-long water-cooled SuperSnakes. Especially factories with heavy or medium-heavy metal working, shipyards, offshore industry, or installation and construction work are perfect places for using SuperSnake. It makes working on big components easy and flexible, because heavy wire feeders no longer need to be moved over long distances or raised when the welding location is high. Welding parameters can also be set with a remote control as well as with the SuperSnake. The welder doesn’t have to move between his welding location and the machine. “This saves a lot of time and of course reduces the strain on the welders”, explains Alexander Klöckner, CEO of Klöckner Siebmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG.

The Pulse-MIG process of FastMig X also contributes to increased productivity. This process saves about two hours per component since no subsequent cleaning is necessary after processing.
