Weland is a proud subcontractor to many customers, large and small. We manufacture everything, from components to finished products.
Machine cab for Alstor AB
The first time that Weland came into contact with Alstor, a Swedish manufacturer of forestry machinery, was at Elmia Subcontractor 2015. A collaboration started, which developed quickly. Weland commenced manufacturing most of the machine cab for the Alstor 833 in Weland’s fleet of machines. Sheet metal parts are laser cut and tubes in high-strength materials are folded, rolled and welded manually. The parts are ground and sand blasted, the cab is painted and then delivered to Alstor for assembly.
The collaboration has now expanded to include more components, such as the chassis for other parts of Alstor’s machines.
Safe parts for UniCarriers AB
UniCarriers designs transport solutions for logistics and warehouses all around the world.
Above all, with a solid and high-quality assortment of both its own low lifters as well as counter weight trucks. Weland is one of its partners, and delivers many sheet metal components for the EPH, one of the most popular trucks in the high-quality assortment. A picker for high levels must have good lifting properties while being safe to use at all heights. Weland manufactures the majority of the sheet metal components for the EPH, a safe picker from UniCarriers. The metal components are laser cut, processed and bent at Weland and are then forwarded for assembly at UniCarriers.
Harvester bars for Europe’s forestry industry
Weland and Foreq have collaborated since 2010. The collaboration started with them jointly developing fixtures to manufacture a series of harvester bars for harvesters. When the production started, 9,000 harvester bars a year were manufactured. Today, 16,000 (30,000) harvester bars a year are manufactured. Weland laser cuts the harvester bars in 6.2 mm cold-rolled sheet (42CRMo4). When the laser cutting is finished, a groove is milled around the bar that ensures the chain stays in place. After manufacturing at Weland, the harvester bars are forwarded to Foreq for hardening, painting and delivery to the end customer.
Flora and fauna in Corten tube
On behalf of MK Smide, Weland has delivered machined metal parts to the Strandskogen project – one of three parks in the Arninge-Ullna district of Täby Municipality. Using laser cutting, Weland has cut out information about flora and fauna in Corten tubes, which have now been set out along the park’s walkways. Approximately 30 tubes in each size have been manufactured and placed out in the park. Weland was responsible for materials and the tube laser cutting and ML Smide for welding and installation. The Strandskogen project, Arninge-Ullna, was nominated for the 2017 Siena Prize. A prize from Sweden’s Architects that rewards the best outdoor environments.
