Hydraulic plate bendingApril, 30 2012
A VIRLI Model 4RS-10-620 4-Roll Hydraulic Plate Bending Roll with a capacity of 10' x 2-3/4" was installed recently at the Siemens Industry, Inc. plant in Milan, Ohio. Due to its size and weight, after assembly and testing at the factory of Sahinler Metal Makina, the manufacturer, the machine was partially disassembled and shipped in two containers and one flat rack to Siemens, where it was re-assembled by a team of factory technicians.
About the acquisition of the machine, Siemens says that with the capabilities of this new machine it will expand its services to the steel industry and potentially to other industries. Also, performing this work internally at the Siemens, Milan, Ohio facility will improve lead times to its customers and allow it a more hands-on control of product quality.
Also recently, another VIRLI Model 4RS-10-620 was sold, but not yet delivered, to a large fabricator in the upper Mid-West. The plate rolls and an expansive line of other fabricating machines from Sahinler Metal Makina are distributed exclusively by COLE-TUVE, Inc. of White Marsh, MD.
