BUMAX installs state-of-the-art machines in Šshammar

BUMAX has installed three new state-of-the-art machines at its facility in Šshammar in Sweden’s steel belt, to enhance its operations and improve productivity.
BUMAX has invested in the latest next-generation machines to ensure it continues to deliver the highest quality fasteners, while further enhancing productivity and safety at its factory in Šshammar.
The multi-million SEK investment consists of three new state-of-the-art machines: two bolt pointing machines and one flat die thread rolling machine. They were installed in October 2020 following approximately a year of planning and preparation.
In addition, the next-generation machines have fewer mechanical parts, which will ensure they require less maintenance and further reduce production downtime at the factory.
The new machines further enhance safety by reducing risks through greater automation.
BUMAX will continue to invest in its production with a new thread rolling machine, which will replace two older machines, and be able to produce threaded rods and stud bolts. A pre-study has begun, and the project will commence in 2021.
