In the production of forestry chains and forestry tracks, 100% of the surplus material is recycled when the cross members are cut off. The raw steel for the cross members is delivered in bars as yard goods and the cross members are cut off from it. Depending on the type of cross member, a piece of residual material remains which cannot be used for any other cross member.
In order to avoid remelting this residual material and reprocessing it at high energy cost, pewag uses it to manufacture the stubs for the forestry tracks. In this way, we ensure that materials are used without residues and resource-saving production is guaranteed.
