Putsch: Optimum Cutting Dynamics

2010-07-01 | Cutting technology

Always a family-managed company, Putsch has developed from a company manufacturing cutting equipment used mainly in the sugar beet industry to a wellknown and respected producer of shears used in the difficult environment of the hot end of glassworks.
