SEUTHE strip end shear and welding machines (BESS) weld the coil end of the preceding coil to the coil front of the new coil (cross seam). They are characterized by a high adaptability to the local conditions. They are available in automatic, semi-automatic and manual execution. Optionally MIG-/MAG- or TIG-welding processes are used. SEUTHE BESS-types allow a short processing time with excellent results and a long lifetime.
