The forming specialist
EEW-Pickhan is one of the global leaders for special forming works. The German mill, which was incorporated within the EEW Group in 2010, focusses on the production of highly specialised pipes and piping components such as extremely thick-walled pipes, half shells and cones. Perfect cold forming of heavy plates with wall thicknesses up to 300 mm (11.8") is carried out by well trained staff operating state-of-the-art machinery. With these products EEW-Pickhan serves an attractive niche market and completes the product portfolio the EEW Group.
EEW-Pickhan is the forming specialist in the EEW Group. Started in 1930 as a small blacksmith’s shop, EEW-Pickhan disposes today of extensive experience in the production of pipes with small diameters and heavy wall thickness up to 250 mm (9.84"), conical segments and multi-dimensional (3D) forming.
Special machinery and equipment as well as particular processes allow EEW-Pickhan to adapt to customers' requirements in the short term. Whether small tonnages or short lengths – EEW-Pickhan is able to find cost-saving solutions for our customers' satisfaction. This flexibility also enables us to fulfill highest customer requirements with very short delivery times.
So-called chords make up special products in the EEW Pickhan portfolio: half-shell segments that are welded to racks and that serve as legs for jack-up rigs. To this effect, cold-formed or warm-formed half-shell segments with mechanically-processed longitudinal and circumferential weld preparations are manufactured in a bending machine. In order to subsequently connect these components with the racks, we use welding machines that were specially developed for this in-house. In this way, we guarantee the fulfilment of the highest quality standards for these components, which are critical for safety.
