Nothing is impossible 11 September 2014

Kettling Verbindungselemente GmbH has established itself as a specialist manufacturer of connecting elements across all industries, supplying around the world. The company’s key strength is its expertise in materials, made to measure instruments and consultancy, as well as its flexibility and the service it provides.

For 30 years Kettling has been specialised in the production of U-bolt clamps and other connecting elements based on round steel (with diameters up to 65mm). For instance, Kettling can produce round steel shackles, according to DIN 3570, and non-standard screw fasteners in a range of sizes from M5 to M72 – made of stainless steel and steel in conjunction with all surface finishes. In addition, welded connections such as pressings and stampings can also be produced.

These products can be used for a variety of sectors including agriculture, heavy-duty vehicles, structural engineering, power plants and the rail industry.

At Kettling the emphasis is not on manufacturing ‘mass produced products’, but rather on special solutions with stringent demands in terms of load and purpose. The company’s vast experience ensures that the customer receives a high consultancy competence with respect to material selection and dimensioning of the articles. In addition, the operational structure at Kettling results in an extremely prompt and flexible processing of customer requests.

The production is characterised by modern manufacturing facilities and in-house tool engineering, enabling Kettling to supply tailor-made connection technology solutions – made of steel and stainless steel – to customers’ demands.

“When you next take an ICE train on a high-speed rail line rest assured that the overhead line is carried at the mast by stainless steel U-bolt clamps from Kettling Verbindungselemente GmbH.”
