SCHAAF - NEWS October 2006


SMM 2006
SHIPBUILDING, MACHINERY AND MARINE TECHNOLOGY,
Hamburg, Sept. 26th – 29th, 2006

Once again, the most important trade fair for the shipbuilding industry was a great success for SCHAAF. Visitor numbers increased compared to last year’s fair.

Fair-goers were especially drawn to the STG 4000-2K, a highly innovative electro-hydraulic two-circuit high-pressure control system for fully-automated pressing and separation of shafts and hubs, which was presented for the first time here. In particular, the live demonstrations of fully-automated shaft and hub pressing and separating gained special recognition among the experts.

In addition to the STG 4000-2K, the specialist crowd also found great interest in the hydraulic high-pressure tools such as the HP 4000-LT hand lever pump and the ExpaTen bolts, which have sparked a new revolution in separable flange joints for drive shafts in shipbuilding.

To SCHAAF, the visitors’ active interest and the large amount of positive feedback is proof that the company is on the right course.
