Pfeil December 2004 EC Pressure Equipment Directive H/H1 accomplished

On Saint Nick's Day - 6 December - the RWTÜV (German Technical Supervision Unit) came to EHR in Essen. Right from the Saint's gift bag: The successful audit on the EC Pressure Equipment Directive, with the highest quality module successfully accomplished. With immediate effect, we are now permitted to design, calculate, build and sell pressure equipment without the explicit participation of the Technical Supervision Unit. Instead, we have established an independent technical supervision department inside EHR. The process principles and the in-house responsibilities are codified in the guidelines for Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC.

Pfeil August 2004 Glissade in Munich

“Art is fun.” Not only the organisers but also the local press and especially the employees and students of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Garching think that way. With playful delight, they use the sculpture “Parabola” created by the artists Brunner and Ritz in the hall of the mathematics and computer science department day after day. The two tubes of the slide lead from the third floor downstairs and can be used instead of lifts and stairs.

[Keine Beschreibung eingegeben]And what has EHR contributed to this fun? Well, firstly they accomplished the welding seams and secondly they supplied and welded the fittings. The demanding materials L 485 MB and S 355J 2G3 as well as the complex geometry proved a successfully met challenge for our specialist at the EHR subsidiary in Dortmund.
