Requirements and Challenges

Borusan Caterpillar is providing heavy duty articulated trucks, hydraulic excavators, lift equipment, booms, terrain scissors lifts in diverse industrial sectors with its wide range of product spectrum.

Borusan Caterpillar was looking for a filtration solution in order to get rid of the dust and smoke which was generated during the manual grinding processes, in its service and maintenance workshop in Kocaeli plant. There are three grinding zones in the workshop, where the steel parts with different sizes and weights are continuously grinded.

Solution

  • After investigating the metal parts to be grinded, VANTERM installed KTM-1500 workbenches for each grinding operator. With its integrated filter elements and fan unit inside KTM – workbench, there are no need for any external duct connection, which has brought a great flexibility for any possible lay-out changes at Borusan.
  • The long filter lifespan and also the user-friendly design of the KTM-workbenches are proven to be the most interesting features for grinding-operators at Borusan Caterpillar.
