Stahlwerke Bochum GmbH reflects on IFAT 2018

Bochum, Germany-based company exhibited its shredder hammers and castings.


Stahlwerke Bochum GmbH (SWB), Bochum, Germany, attended IFAT 2018 in Munich May 14-18 as an exhibitor.

The company issued the following release after IFAT 2018 wrapped up:

“From its colorful graffiti-style IFAT stand, SWB distributed information about the further development of its tried-and-tested CSNG hammers and is more than satisfied with its participation in the trade fair.

"The continuous further development of its castings made in Bochum has always been a top priority for SWB. In late 2017, SWB launched its original CSNG hammers with a new formula. SWB kept the tried-and-tested materials. This offers the shredder operators security and a high availability of their plants with the original from SWB. At the same time, SWB has optimized the relevant production parameters. The new formula includes adjustments in the use of alloys, a modified temperature control with adjusted holding times within the heat treatment process, as well as the greatest possible homogenization of the primary microstructure through the use of computer simulation. The optimized CSNG hammers show a significantly improved stress resistance, which leads to a noticeable reduction of the risk of chipping due to overload.

"From May 14-18, 2018, SWB customers, potential buyers and all other trade fair visitors had the chance to inform themselves about the ‘new’ CSNG hammers at IFAT in Munich. The original with a new formula—represented by an airbrush hammer model with shark teeth—was the star among the SWB wear parts that were presented as ‘ultimate eyecatchers’ at the colorful, graffiti-style stand and was a popular photo subject. But also the other products of SWB’s full program of highly wear-resistant tools and components for shredders, shears, crushers and other processing plants attracted numerous visitors to the SWB stand. Hence, SWB is more than satisfied with its IFAT participation. The SWB team could strengthen existing contacts and establish new ones. The internationality of the trade fair visitors was of particular note. SWB already delivers to more than 50 countries worldwide with a rising trend—also thanks to IFAT.”

IFAT 2020 is set for May 4-8 in Munich.
