Transport and storage containers
Zakład Wyrobów Metalowych STRUMET has been specializing in the design and production of reusable metal containers for transport and storage for over 25 years. Containers are used in various industries as well as in trade, distribution, services and agriculture. The requirements placed on containers by all these users make it difficult to use universal solutions. That is why virtually all containers we produce are designed to meet the individual requirements of a particular customer. The common features of all metal containers are their high durability, the possibility of manipulation with a forklift truck and the possibility of stacking - one on top of the other. When choosing the optimal container, customers can benefit from our many years of experience. We offer a wide range of proven solutions. We are open to every customer. We cooperate with large corporations, family production and service companies, as well as individual customers.

The production process of transport containers
The production process begins with the cutting of the material. The next stage is the welding of the construction of the containers. Depending on the customer's requirements, the containers or their elements are protected against corrosion by powder coating or galvanizing. At the end of production, the final assembly takes place, where the equipment of the containers is assembled and descriptions are applied.
We have our own design office. In addition to the necessary equipment, it has been equipped with modern software - CATIA V5, Autodesk Inventor and NX Siemens. The biggest advantage of the office is a team of several thoroughly educated engineers with extensive knowledge and professional experience.
An important step in any project is creating a container prototype. This is handled by a well-equipped tool shop department. Highly qualified employees build prototypes of products that are used for project verification and validation, tests in conditions of use as well as certification tests.
The basic material for the production of containers are steel semi-finished products - sheets, flat and round bars, angles, round and rectangular pipes, etc. Basic operations of cutting, punching, stamping, bending, drilling and milling are carried out in the trimming department, equipped with traditional devices such as saws, sheet metal guillotines, edge and eccentric presses, drills and milling machines. Details with complex shapes and requiring high accuracy and repeatability of machining are made in the CNC machine department.
Details with complex shapes and requiring high accuracy and repeatability of machining are made in the CNC machine department. We have four milling machining centers, a gantry milling machine, a pipe bending station, four automatic lathes, seven laser plotters for cutting sheet metal, including four in fiber technology, three machines for laser cutting of pipes and profiles, and two plasma plotters for cutting sheet metal.</p >
Our products, depending on customer requirements, can be painted, hot-dip galvanized or electro-galvanized. We have a manually operated, nest paint shop for large-size products and a modern, high-performance automated varnishing line. The powder coating technique ensures durable, high-quality coatings. It is also the most ecological of all painting techniques. The highest anti-corrosion resistance is ensured by the hot-dip zinc coating applied to the steel structures. Our hot-dip galvanizing plant is one of the largest in the region, the maximum dimensions of the structure that we can galvanize are 10.2 meters long, 1.4 meters wide and 2.7 meters high. Galvanic galvanizing provides coatings with high aesthetic values, intended mainly for structures not exposed to weather conditions. Coatings are made in a modern, automated electroplating plant, where structures up to 2.8 meters long, 0.8 meters wide and 1.8 meters high can be coated with zinc.
The last stage of production is the final assembly of the containers. The work carried out by versatile employees consists in the installation and adjustment of container accessories, such as movable handles and clamps, ratchet columns or plastic elements. At this stage, the products are equipped with plates, stickers and information and identification descriptions in accordance with the customer's specification. RFID tags are also often installed, enabling remote reading of information.
The entire production process, from receipt of material to release of the finished product, is supervised by the quality control department. The department employs 23 well-educated controllers who, in addition to basic measuring tools, also have at their disposal a measuring laboratory equipped with measuring arms and an optical measuring system.
We have a certificate of Factory Production Control in accordance with the EN 1090 standard and a quality certificate for welding works in accordance with the EN ISO 3834 standard.
