Desart Industries is a renowned name in Flanders. The company is a major supplier and specializes in the supply of all turning and milling as well as ground components. Desart Industries does this for both small and medium sized runs as well as for prototypes.
Desart Industries has been part of Buyse Metal Works Group since January 2012. Through this acquisition the two companies together are able to offer a very wide range of different components.
Desart Industries machines a very large range of different materials. In addition to the traditional ferrous materials (machining steel, carbon steels, alloy steels, cast iron) non-ferrous metals are also processed such as brass, stainless steel and plastic. Desart Industries also specializes in creating components in exotic materials such as Duplex, Monel and other nickel alloys.
At the end of 2014 Desart Industries purchased a RoboJob Turn-Assist 250. This was installed on a Doosan Puma 2600 Y. Because of the smooth integration into the company, Desart Industries has purchased a second Turn-Assist 250, which will also be installed on a Doosan Puma 2600 Y.
Wouter Vandenbranden, General Manager “Since the acquisition of Desart Industries by Buyse Metal Works Group we have become great advocates of modernisation. Our machine park is being further modernised step-by-step and also automated where possible. In doing so we are succeeding in offering competitive prices and thus staying ahead of the field. We chose for RoboJob namely for 3 reasons. First and foremost, their automation is extremely compact and only takes up a limited amount of floor space. In addition, this ensures that the natural way of working is not disturbed and one can easily manoeuvre around the machine. Also RoboJob is of course based not too far away from us, whereby we are assured that any problems are dealt with quickly. We were also pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic references of RoboJob. It also gives us pleasure that our name too can now be added to these.
In retrospect, the speed of the installation is also an enormous strength of RoboJob: on Monday the robot base was anchored, on Tuesday the robot was installed and on Wednesday our operators were trained. I'm really surprised at the speed with which the installation of the whole was carried out and the speed at which our operators were able to start using this machine. All these elements, as well as the ease of use and the availability of the Turn-Assist meant that we quickly decided to purchase a second system.”
