Tube laser cutting in Corten steel
The laser-cut parts made of Corten steel found along the walkways in Strandskogen, Arninge-Ullna, come from Weland. The site has been nominated as one of Sweden's best outdoor environments.
Commissioned by MK Smide, Weland produced laser-cut parts in Corten steel for the Strandskogen project. This is one of three parks in the Arninge-Ullna district of Täby Municipality. Weland used laser cutting to cut information about flora and fauna in Corten tubes which were then installed along the park's walkway.
A special commission
Approximately 30 Corten tubes of various sizes have been manufactured and set out in the park to inform visitors about the flora and fauna at each location. Weland was responsible for the materials and tube laser cutting and ML Smide for the welding work and installation.
"This was a very special project for us that we found both exciting and challenging. We enjoyed working in collaboration with ML Smide and it is fantastic to see the results of our work in place," says Lars Kennethsson, Head of Sales at Weland.
