Waiward Steel, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is a premier high tonnage structural fabricator in North America. When they needed to expand plate production, where did they turn? To the new Peddinghaus high speed HSFDB-2500! In their own words, the President, shop management, and machine operators describe their thoughts on the new equipment….
“For 30 years, Waiward Steel, Peddinghaus Corporation and its local distributor Akhurst Machinery have been excellent business partners. They understand our expectations and how to maintain a strong relationship - even in challenging economic times. From my dad and Don I have learned that this relationship is one that the next generation at Waiward can depend on.” Terry Degner
“We recently received a project requiring multiple holes to be counter sunk and tapped. The new Peddinghaus HSFDB plate machine gave us a huge advantage! Carbide drilling, tapping, countersinking and burning on one machine gave us the edge we needed to obtain this work.” Terry Degner
“We are strong supporters of Peddinghaus equipment – their technology is superior. I can tell you the new high speed carbide model HSFDB-2500's drilling speeds are phenomenal, the thermal cuts are superior and one operator can perform all the machine functions including loading and unloading. I am convinced… there is NO plate processing machine that compares to the Peddinghaus HSFDB-2500!" – Rob Wright
"I have been with Waiward many years and have operated all of the Peddinghaus machines in our shop – including the FPB-1500, FDB-1500, FDB-2500, and the FPDB-1800. They are all very good, but this new high speed HSFDB-2500 is the BEST. Peddinghaus got it right…" – Robi Dosanj
