Additional services

Would you like to save time and costs? By contracting the bending plus the additional (mechanical) processes to the same company you save valuable time and transportation costs.

Bending technology is our core business, but besides that we offer additional services to deliver ready-to-buid-in bent constructions and semi-finished products. In this, bending is often just a part of the total concept. Our engineers collaborate with you to develop innovative solutions, from comprehensive consulting on development and production to final assembly.



Kersten Europe Engineering

Our engineers will be happy to advise you about the possibilities of bending technology early in the design phase of your project.  

We can transform your requirements into a workshop drawing.

(3D contour) cutting

Besides engineering and bending Kersten Europe offers various additional value adding services like oxy-fuel and plasma cutting. By using modern robot technology we cut your plates and profiles to size. 

Cutting cylinder and cone patterns

Before bending a plate is cut to size. Kersten Europe has two cutting portals with a plasma burner and an oxy fuel burner. If required, a rotating 3D-burner head cuts the plate to size adds complex welding edges in one single operation.

We cut plates up to 16m x 4.5m and a plate thickness of 250mm. Also plates in various alloys can be cut. 

Material costs can be reduced by limiting the amount of rest material. Our engineers calculate exactly how much material is required while taking into account the overlength . 

(3D contour) cutting

After the bending process we remove the overlength by using advanced CNC-controlled cutting robots. These robots apply (complex) 3D contours and/or welding edges int he same operation. The robot also cuts holes. 

his extremely accurate process guarantees a significant cost saving and excellent reproducibility in relation to conventional techniques. The use of flexible machining options and modern software make that robotised cutting is suitable for small and medium-sized series.

Besides cutting tubes and pipes, the robots make complex cuts from profiles like IPE’s, HEA’s and UNP’s. For cutting stainless steel Kersten Europe makes use of an advanced plasma cutting robot.

By using offline programming (by using simulation packages) the engineering time and costs are reduced. This complex cut is realised by just one single cut. This makes the advanced 3D-robot cutting suitable and affordable for small quantities as well.

Surface treatments

After bending Kersten Europe offers surface treatments to your bent products. Surface treatments like anodizing, galvanization, powder coating and painting.


Heat treatments

Heat treatments like soft annealing and aging are offered by Kersten Europe as well.

The qualified staff is using the latest technology. If desired, the treatments can be inspected by a certified organisation. Treating large and heavy parts are no problem for Kersten Europe.
