Solange improves Weland’s material use

Solange Nordström works in production improvement in the plan laser department at Weland AB in Smålandsstenar. She joined the company 8 years ago, working as a laser operator in production.

“I was then given the opportunity to learn about what we call ‘tower lasers’. These are two fibre laser machines that are connected to an associated tower magazine for storage management of finished metal and raw plate. It was an incredibly enjoyable challenge!”

Nordström now writes the programs for plate that is laser cut in the laser machines.

“The best thing about my job is that there are always challenges. It’s also great that we get such good feedback about our work and to know that we’ve helped reduce the amount of wastage over the past few years.” Reducing the amount of waste is important for many reasons, not least environmental!

“Weland AB is the sort of workplace where you have the chance to develop. I feel secure, appreciated, and part of the company. The powers that be in the company trust the knowledge that the employees here have built up over the years and listen to our ideas. This attitude always encourages me to go that extra mile!”
