We are so eager to show our skills that we have produced prototypes at our own expense. The example shown here was made for the world leading tool manufacturer Sandvik – a spool measuring 1,8 X 1,2 meters, costing a total of 1,8 million NOK to produce. It showcases what the machines and craftsman at Norse are capable of. It has been exhibited at conferences and exhibitions globally. It now resides at Sandvik’s main offices in Sweden, where 26 000 visitors are amazed by it every year.
