Success story: VDL Belgium

VDL Belgium is one of the 87 companies within the VDL Group. They are known for high-quality fabrications for the automotive industry. VDL Belgium supplies parts to their sister divisions and directly the the automove Tier1’s and OEM. In 2000 the VDL Belgium plant burnt to the ground. After the fire they rebuilt and initially set their focus on exhaust systems for Scania and Volvo. Today, they operate produce parts for many industries but automotive remains as the focus. The company employs a workforce of 100 in a 16,000 square metre plant: they are the largest VDL company outside of Holland.

VDL Belgium makes increasingly more complex exhaust parts starting from the customer's 3D models. Performing three-dimensional laser jobs on bent tubular assemblies with the LT-FREE system is not a problem. For major customers the essential aspects of production are cost, quality and delivery times. LT-FREE has changed the production process making it more efficient. In some cases, it is possible to save up to 50% on costs compared to the old methods.
