The Wieland Group invests > 3 million EUR to expand the production capacity of contour-milled (multi-gauge) strip in Asia, Singapore. As part of its global growth and internationalisation strategy, the Wieland Group is further expanding its operations in Singapore to better serve the Asian market with premium copper products and innovative customer solutions.
Wieland is a global supplier of outstanding solutions in the semi-finished products industry, coupled with superior customer service. The company will be exhibiting at this year's Elmia Subcontractor trade fair from 14 – 17 November in Jönköping, Sweden. The focus is on solutions for drinking-water applications, in particular copper materials for components such as fittings and valves as well as on fittings including lead-free machining brass. Further highlights from Wieland can also be seen, such as finned tubes and high-performance tubes for the cooling industry.
Travelling to the origins of the universe with copper
Under the motto “Collaborations for Your Excellence“ the Wieland Group as one of 37 companies will be presenting its innovative product and service portfolio at CERN in Meyrin, Switzerland, on 10 and 11 October 2017. The industrial fair is organised by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research together with CERN to strengthen existing collaborations and to make new partnerships possible.
The European Organisation for Nuclear Research tries to unravel the mysteries of the universe, for example with the CERN particle accelerator. By reconstructing the situation right after the Big Bang, scientists are researching the building blocks of matter and natural forces. For the superconductors at the core of this powerful machine, the Wieland Group uses copper-based high-tech fibres. In addition, components such as rods, sections and tubes, mainly of pure copper, are used in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest experimental facility built in a 27 km long tunnel between France and Switzerland at CERN.
As a global technology company, Wieland supports basic research in physics with its know-how in key technologies such as material science as well as forming and joining technology.
Visit us from 25 to 27 September at the international industry conference for natural refrigerants. Wieland-Werke AG is a Silver Sponsor of this European conference which will be attended by developers, industry representatives and regulators.
Under the brand partnership with ConexIBänninger, Wieland will be presenting its activities regarding the K65 tube system. In refrigeration, particularly in the field of supermarket refrigeration systems, ecologically oriented system concepts are increasingly being applied. The natural refrigerants used for this purpose require materials with high strength for tubes, connectors and heat exchangers. The K65 tube system is a core component for more environmentally friendly refrigeration systems.
The tube system is designed for high-pressure applications of up to 120 bar and characterised by ease of processing as well as excellent heat transfer.
