Approach to product development pays off for customers – 25% longer lifespan
The success the company has seen over the years can be summed up by their approach to product development. Klepp Mek believes that making the best quick couplers and buckets for excavators requires the best materials.
“When it comes to our products, the big challenge when designing is finding materials that can deal with a combination of forces that will be exerted on the equipment,” explains Magne Oma, CEO and owner of Klepp Mek. “Over the years, we’ve tried many materials, but nothing has been as good as Strenx® and Hardox® from SSAB. Their strength and flexibility have allowed us to achieve products that stand the test of time. And our customers can get up to a 25 percent longer product lifetime.”
Klepp Mek currently uses Strenx® 700 E in the top and bottom plates of its excavator quick couplers because of the steel’s high strength, consistency, and extreme environments. Klepp Mek quick couplers are also certified My Inner Strenx®, and all of the company’s buckets are Hardox® In My Body certified.
