INNERGY is a multinational company specializing in eco-friendly energy solutions thinking not only about the needs of the customer, but also about the needs of our planet. When it was founded 50 years ago, the company has specialized in design and manufacture of thermal oil boilers. However, over the time the world has changed and Innergy had to change with it. Today, its portfolio contains biomass generation and cogeneration plants, boilers or systems for use of residual heat.
Today the company has three separate divisions (Innergy Heavy Industries, Innergy Electric and Innergy Engineering), three international headquarters (Spain, Chile and Japan) and has worked on more than 6,500 projects on 5
Innergy opted for the ProfileCut from MicroStep with a working area of 12 x 4.5 meters for cutting of flat metal sheets. The machine is equipped with a pipe positioner and supporting rollers for cutting of pipes with a diameter up to 700 mm and profile cutting zone for cutting of H, U and L profiles up to 12 m long and 600 mm wide. The "pantograph" rotator is capable of tilting up to +/- 90° which makes the profile cutting feasible. All this supported by the XPR300® plasma source from Hypertherm. Mr. David Moldes, Chief Strategy and Corporate Development Officer, shared the decision making insights in a short interview:
Since 2017 you use a sheet and pipe cutting machine. Why did you decide for the ProfileCut from MicroStep?
David Moldes: “Acquisition of new equipment in Innergy follows strict rules since we need equipment which meets high quality standards characteristic for our company. We aim to continue providing our customers with state-of-the-art industrial boilers and other products and with this in mind, we decided for MicroStep's ProfileCut. During the selection process we didn’t only take the machine’s features into account. The important factor was also the good references MicroStep has on the market.”
How has the machine helped your manufacturing process?
David Moldes: “Having the machine has helped us mainly in two areas. First of all, by reducing manufacturing times and at the same time by improving the quality of our heater products. In addition, thanks to the incorporation of the ProfileCut we no longer have to outsource the parts cutting. That gives us both speed and self-sufficiency.”
