Trick or treat? Unplanned downtime:
a real-life horror story

It is normal for kids to love a scary Halloween. They want to explore the boundaries of their own fears: a way to learn about them. We also like to push our process and equipment for the best results and learn from it. In Operations the focus is often on capacity(output). The adrenaline rushes through […]

The evolution of quality: goodbye to ‘50 shades of grey’

‘Measuring is knowing’ and that is only positive. As management you can steer on data, you can increase your OEE on the production floor and even win a grand prix with it. Also in the field of quality more and more things are measured and made visible in figures and graphs. Smoothing out rough edges […]

What about the Industry4 people:
Ir. Operator? MSc Technician?

Some interesting trends were spotted at TechniShow by our man Jan Peter Biersteker. The next step towards smart industry was the theme of the show and as its name suggest it was all about the technology. So, for us an amazing visit! But the trends give food for thought as well.. Production process: does it […]

Is your industrial safety really up-to-par?

Whether it’s a robot, object handling equipment or an entire coating line; every piece of equipment that leaves our factory complies with the highest quality standards. At the same time, we put a lot of effort into the safety of our equipment. Conversely, we do not have the full guarantee that customers always work as […]

Selmers recognizes that the cleaning process has a huge impact on the coating quality, so we are constantly striving to perfect the process. Advantages: Proven track record in factories maintaining the highest quality standards Reliable equipment Efficient to use Built to enhance the pipe coating process   How it Works As part of the cleaning […]

Safety Cell System

Our robotic solutions come with a safety cell if required according standards, or when desirable for the area or robot type. For any other solution that we provide we can advise for and supply with (interlocked) safety fencing according to EN-ISO-14120, EN 349, and EN-ISO 13857   The Full Scope:   Safety fences and interlocks, […]

Robotic De-Icing Plant

Due to outdoor storage during the winter pipes get covered with compact snow and ice which needs to be removed prior to load-out. Our solution ensures that the exterior of the pipes will be sufficiently clean of ice. Advantages: Safe and employee friendly No damage to high quality coatings High speed   The Full Scope: […]

Robotic Pipe End Brushing and OOR (“The Predator”)

This solution was developed in close cooperation with a customer. They process countless individual pipes off-shore into one long pipeline that is then sunk onto the seabed. Before the pipes can be welded together in the so-called prep area on a ship, the end caps must be removed.  After that, the surface is treated in […]

Robotic Pipe Cap Removal (“The Predator”)

This solution was developed in close cooperation with a customer. They process countless individual pipes off-shore into one long pipeline that is then sunk onto the seabed. Before the pipes can be welded together in the so-called prep area on a ship, the end caps must be removed. At an earlier stage, after applying the […]

Robotic Process Solutions (General)

Nowadays robotics is an essential component in many modern manufacturing environments. They enable production processes to be faster, flexible, safer and more reliable. Selmers believes that each production facility, big or small, can benefit from the advantages of robotic process solutions. Selmers has developed a range of robotic solutions which are valuable for the pipe […]
