Creating gap-free connections

At the heart of our Spool Milling Station lies the groundbreaking ZEROGAP technology, a patented innovation by KRANENDONK. This unique male-female bevel connection creates a seamless and precise fit between pipe-components, eliminating any gaps or misalignments.

The concept of the ZEROGAP is rooted in its name. It means that the male and female components fit together so closely and precisely that no space, or 'gap', remains between them. This tight, seamless fit ensures a high degree of alignment and positional accuracy, which significantly simplifies the subsequent welding process.
