The “all-new” Wehrhahn masterpiece: 5 vat sheeting machine

50 mm thick panels at Baopeng / China

One of the largest AAC production plants in China, located in Liyang is now operating at full capacity. The superSMART plant produces blocks and panels of exceptional high quality, right at the heart of the Chinese AAC industry in the Jiangsu province.

High in demand are thin panels with thicknesses of 50 and 75 mm. The panels are vertically applied (floor to ceiling) and enable fast and easy installation. The new plant is already designed to cut super smooth surfaces, simply by adding Wehrhahn’s newly designed super smooth cutter.

The teams of Baopeng and Wehrhahn jointly managed to accomplish all targets set out in this project.

Wehrhahn Plant Support - experience report

Producers of building materials always focus on staying ahead of competition.

Wehrhahn provides expert assistance to producers by keeping an analytical eye on their production process, identifying cost saving potentials and suitable opportunities for improvement. 

Which benefits have Wehrhahn customers recently experienced after support services have been rendered?

In two plants EUR 300.000,00 respectively more than EUR 400.000,00 savings in annual production costs could be generated. In two other plants, some basic faults could be detected and the shortcomings have been remedied - the result was a 50% reduced reject rate.

Several trainings on site or at the Wehrhahn headquarters have been carried out and the staff members could boost and update their knowledge. The training was followed by additional visits on site to deepen the first lessons. Numerous letters of appreciation have proven the successful performance of Wehrhahn plant support. We will gladly provide more information upon request. Please contact us!
