New markets through innovative systems

The brand-new vacuum bagging system is the latest example of the innovative power in Hamm.

Another example of innovative power in Hamm is the automatic bagging system. A multilayer continuous tube is cut into bags that are filled with welding powder and hermetically sealed. Thanks to aluminum, the material is vapor-tight and protects the powder from moisture. This innovation can open up new markets. And in fact, during the ramp-up in February 2017, a 500-ton order was closed with a renowned offshore customer.
