The Challenge

The entire production process of the stoves takes place in one area. It starts with the cutting and bending of the stainless steel plates. Next steps are the cutting table and the welding. The annual consumption of welding wire is approx. 6000 kg, divided over 10 workplaces. Last steps are the surface treatment and painting of the final products.

Labour conditions are a very important issue at ADF. In order to protect the employees against welding fume and to offer them a pleasant working environment, they realized the necessity to keep the workshop free from welding fume.
