A SPHERE IS IDEAL
IN THEORY –
AND IN PRACTICE.
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Our design engineers need to grapple with both sides: the mathematical ideal of the sphere and its physical properties as actually experienced. The fruits of this exemplary symbiosis of thought, simulation and experimentation – combined with an in-depth knowledge of materials and their load-bearing capacity – are exploited by our development teams on a daily basis. In itself, however, a sphere (i.e. a ball) does not make a ball valve. Only when interacting with complex seals and adjusting mechanisms does it become the component valued by our customers around the world: a dynamic, precise and secure shut-off valve for material flow management.
Over the decades, we have produced a modular construction unit which has brought about attractive client-specific solutions and some surprising innovations along the way. This process has been driven by the inventiveness of our employees and supported by state-of-the-art CAD systems. Now we look to a future that started with mining.
