It’s common knowledge that TIG welding demands a sharpened Tungsten electrode, but understanding why is crucial. Let’s dive into some key tips to ensure your grinding process not only sharpens the electrode but also maintains high-quality welding.
“We have to weld and produce the highest quality according to pharmaceutical and health standards. The cleaner and more delicate the weld seam is from the start, the less we have to correct afterwards.” – Mr. Markus Hübsch
In the realm of the pharmaceutical and health sectors, precision and high standards takes precedence. Bausch + Ströbel is a leading partner for pharmaceutical packaging solutions and have high efforts to support their customers’ needs. Their filling and packaging equipment contribute to improving the accessibility of medications, vaccines, and diagnostics, ensuring their global availability in a safe, timely, and cost-effective manner.
We spoke to Mr. Markus Hübsch, Team lead of manufacturing at Bausch + Ströbel, who showed us just how critical precision and high quality is to Bausch + Ströbel and the role Inelco Grinders play in meeting the high standards. After acquiring the Tungsten grinder: Ultima-TIG by Inelco Grinders, it became apparent how it could improve upon their TIG-weld, where the precision of the weld seam is crucial.
Bernd Tenschert joined the conversation and highlighted the Ultima-TIG’s ability to capture grinding dust in the dust collector, emphasizing the synergy between both companies in promoting environmentally responsible practices. Mr. Hübsch adds how they plan on taking advantage of Inelco Grinders’ “recycling of Tungsten dust” programme, where it is possible to book a pick-up of the full dust collector free of charge for the client. Inelco Grinders will take care of the shipment to the recycling factory and thereby the Tungsten particles are prevented from polluting the environment.
Mr. Hübsch also emphasizes the significance of safety at Bausch + Ströbel: “The safety of the machine is very important. The risk of injury is of course also a big point because you avoid getting your hands close to the grinding wheel.”
Due to the enclosed grinding chamber, the user avoids contact with the grinding disc, underlining the paramount importance Inelco Grinders places on occupational safety. This commitment aligns seamlessly with Bausch + Ströbel’s core values, as both companies prioritize the well-being of their employees. As a leading partner in pharmaceutical packaging solutions, Bausch + Ströbel shares a common ground with Inelco Grinders in their dedication to safety, precision, and environmental responsibility. This emphasis on occupational safety further solidifies the partnership, highlighting a shared commitment to excellence and the well-being of those involved in the intricate process of pharmaceutical packaging.
