Peterseim Metallwerke invest in an extension to their machinery equipment

Peterseim Metallwerke, headquartered in Olpe, Germany, is known worldwide as a specialist in seamless drawn tubes made from aluminium and brass. The tubes, produced in the Olpe facilities, are the base material for a very broad range of different products, e.g. components for technical devices, fittings and the automotive industry.



Peterseim invests some 60,000 EUR in cleaning equipment for tube sections

For many years we have impressed our customers with the outstanding quality of the seamless drawn tubes we manufacture with special care and precision. The drawing of the tubes is the first step towards achieving high-quality products. From the tube drawing line, the tubes – mainly in standard dimensions of up to six metres in length – are transported for further processing and finishing, either at Peterseim or on the customer’s premises.



Peterseim invests 130,000 EUR in refurbishment of the pickling and washing plant

At Peterseim we have traditionally attached great importance to investments, which are seen as valuable building blocks for safeguarding the future. Continuous technical improvements, especially for maintaining a consistent standard in the precision and quality of seamless drawn tubes and tube products, are part of our constant process.

At the beginning of 2011, some 130,000 EUR were invested in the refurbishment of the pickling and washing plant. The new pickling and washing basins leap to the eye; however  the refurbishment work, which is not immediately visible, is even more interesting. It includes complete refurbishment of the concrete of the pickling bunds and the surrounding area, including the application of a special coating which prevents permanently the penetration of liquids into the concrete. The tubes for the heating circuit and the fresh water supply have been replaced by new installations which comply with the latest environmental protection standards.

Now the pickling and washing operations in the production process can be carried out safely, reliably and cleanly. This applies to both product quality and environmental protection, two very important areas which are in harmony in our company.


With TUBOTRON 60, Peterseim offers maximum bending flexibility for demanding materials

Until now our portfolio has focussed on brass and aluminium. However, the recent investment in a state-of-the-art tube bending machine made by Tracto-Technik allows us to process almost all materials. Many companies from different industries are already benefitting from our enhanced service and have placed orders with us for contract bending of tubes made from steel or stainless steel.

This new machine is capable of processing tubes with a max. outer diameter of 60 mm and has a free-standing bending head to give maximum flexibility. The extremely rugged design and the strong bending drive unit mean that the machine is capable of bending both thick-walled and thin-walled tubes.

Thanks to our close relationships with companies in the automotive, aircraft, maritime and furniture industries, as well as in machine and plant engineering, we have built up a broad knowledge of markets and products and are able to offer our customers perfect solutions to meet their needs.
