Pipe & Joints.

Easytube pipe racking system offers a wide range of modular components such as reusable steel tubes and rapid assembly connecting joints, brackets, roller tracks, parts and accessories, which enable you to design and build a variety of versatile structures, applications and solutions that can be integrated into a Lean Manufacturing or Kaizen environment without any difficulty. Steel pipes available with colour coded plastic coating, with powder coating or in stainless steel, are cut to length to suit your individual designs. These are simply connected by a wide selection of steel joints and accessories, enabling a rapid assembly of structures.

The con­cept of pipe and joint sys­tems came to our atten­tion some years ago when we were deal­ing with the phi­los­o­phy of Lean Pro­duc­tion. We ini­tial­ly dis­trib­uted the prod­ucts of a major Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­er and were very suc­cess­ful in Ger­many, Aus­tria and Hun­gary. The mar­ket poten­tial far exceed­ed that of any oth­er prod­uct in our range. After work­ing with sev­er­al sup­pli­ers and see­ing the weak­ness­es with­in these, we decid­ed in 2007 to launch our own prod­uct: Easy­tube.

 

Of course, we fol­lowed inter­na­tion­al stan­dards as regards dimen­sions of the pipe and the joints – one of the major advan­tages of this sys­tem for any cus­tomer is that the parts from all major man­u­fac­tur­ers are com­pat­i­ble. Need­less to say, we chose qual­i­ty over price when select­ing grades of steel, plat­ing, pre­ci­sion and fin­ish­ing. Our rapid growth has proven this deci­sion to be cor­rect.

 

Pipe and joint sys­tems, as an effi­cient tool for imple­men­ta­tion of Lean Man­u­fac­ture, lay bare the poten­tial for improve­ment in the areas of design of work places. Because the prin­ci­ples are eas­i­ly under­stood, the mate­r­i­al rel­a­tive­ly cheap and the pos­si­bil­i­ties end­less, the first suc­cess­es in improve­ment are rapid and build enthu­si­asm for fur­ther change.

 

A cycle thus results, the improve­ments in one depart­ment fuelling the appetite for change in oth­ers, work done in one area show­ing new poten­tial else­where. Nor does this end at the work­sta­tion or indi­vid­ual appli­ca­tions such as trol­leys, flow racks or pack­ag­ing areas, it soon becomes evi­dent that this tool can be applied to redesign the entire man­u­fac­tur­ing area, giv­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty where none exist­ed pre­vi­ous­ly. Prop­er­ly applied, pipe and joint sys­tems offer the oppor­tu­ni­ty to great­ly improve pro­duc­tiv­i­ty in a wide range of man­u­fac­tur­ing, pack­ag­ing, stor­age, retail and logis­tic indus­tries.

 

PEK3 is now a major sup­pli­er of these sys­tems through­out Europe – and beyond! We have cus­tomers in north­ern and south­ern Africa, South Amer­i­ca, Rus­sia, Turkey and through­out Europe. Our assem­bly teams are based in Poland, France, Ger­many, Hun­gary, Czech Repub­lic, Rus­sia and Moroc­co. Our prin­ci­pal stocks are in Ger­many with small­er stocks in oth­er loca­tions as required.
