Scharmann ECOFORCE enhances production skills for bespoke valve machining

Scharmann ECOFORCE

When each raw material casting or forging can cost up to £90,000, it is clear that care, skill and confidence in its machining and complete production process are critical to Koso Kent Introl (KKI) for the specialist valve bodies it manufactures for the sub-sea, oil and gas and petrochemical sectors.

Key to the company’s ever-growing confidence in its production capabilities is the installation of a Dörries Scharmann Technologie GmbH (part of Starrag Group)-supplied Scharmann ECOFORCE 1 HT2 horizontal machining centre.
