• Industrial services provider awarded new, long-term contract;
• 40 employees ready to clean machines within only four days.
To be able to focus completely on its core competence, the production of machines and equipment, BOMAG has had the technical cleaning of the production plant at its headquarters in Boppard (Rhineland-Palatinate) carried out by an industrial services provider for several years. Last year the company searched for a new partner for this task.
Within shortest time, Voith Industrial Services provided a team consisting of 40 employees to take over the machine cleaning activities. This convinced BOMAG. As a result, the industrial services provider now performs services on-site at BOMAG’s production facilities every day.
The machine cleaning activities require, for one thing, special technical equipment such as high-pressure water blasting or dry-ice cleaning equipment and, for another thing, trained employees who clean all parts of the machines properly, also those rather difficult to access. Be it robots in the body shop, a powder coating plant, milling machines in the jix and fixtures production, drip trays in the assembly shop, or test beds: different production areas require different technical cleaning approaches. In addition, there is a wide range of machine components from guideways and the machine body to supply and disposal lines, control cabinets or hydraulic and pneumatic equipment.
“As an industrial services provider we are at the customer’s heart as it were: at its production facilities. We are very pleased about the long-term partnership with BOMAG. It shows us that the customer trusts us and is positive about our work”, says Fuat Kaya, Technical Supervisor at Voith Industrial Services in Ruesselsheim.
In addition to cleaning and reconditioning the machinery, Voith Industrial Services also carries out machine and manual cleaning of the factory buildings including pallet racks and indoor cranes. Furthermore, the team is responsible for the disassembly and reassembly of crane runways and internal robot relocations.
BOMAG manufactures machines for the compaction of soil, asphalt and refuse, stabilizers/recyclers, planers as well as finishers.
