New products are developed and existing products are updated on
two CAD workstations. These stations enable us to develop also
the fixtures for manufacturing special components for third parties.
As regards the spindles, this enables us to supply a technical
support (mechanical, hydraulic and electrical) to the customers,
starting from the enquiries and supplying complete solutions ready
for assembling. In the same manner, we offer also a support in
case of third-party jobs, as we are able to design specific features
for making definite components. The possibility of handling the
projects inside of our company allows a direct contact with the
customer for making any drawings very quickly. This enables us
to have a direct and continuous interchange of information both
with our workshop and with the end-user.
Manufacturing is managed by means of computerized supports so to compile
the shop-orders and the work cycles. Always by means of a PC, the
advancement of the shop-orders is kept under control and the cost
accounts are filed.
A considerable quantity of raw materials is always kept in stock,
in order to satisfy quickly the need coming from the production. All
materials used are accompanied by the respective certification and
at the arrival of the goods are immediately identified.
The extended machine tool park enables us to realise completely inside
of the company the manufacturing process of all components. For this
purpose, modern CNC machine tools are used, such as a MAZAK INTERGREX
400Y-II turning-machine, a universal CNC grinding machine with multi-wheel
turret and a multi-pallet horizontal machining center.
The possibility of manufacturing completely all mechanical parts inside
of the company enables us to keep the quality assurance constantly
under control and to have a continuous interchange of information
with the technical office and the assembling workshop. Furthermore,
when drawing up new projects, this enables the optimisation of components
for meeting in a better way the technical needs of the machine tools
and the know-how of the company.
As an average, each year more than 15% of the turnover is used for
purchasing and updating the machine tools.
Some additional jobs, such as gear cutting and large boring jobs,
are carried out by external companies.
Many heat treatment jobs are carried out inside of our company, as
we have our own pit furnace. This enables us to carry out intermediate
treatments during the manufacturing cycle on all critical parts so
to improve the final quality and to reduce also the manufacturing
present, our manufacturing range is subdivided as follows:
Different mechanical parts of medium high-precision are realised.
These comprise different types of machining jobs. The batches go from
a single piece up to quantities of 1000-2000 pieces also using automatic
CNC machine tools which can work in a manless shift. This field comprises
also manufacturing of components for spindles (such as shafts, flanges,
spacers, etc.) to be supplied separately to the customer.
Also mechanical groups according to the customers drawings will
be manufactured to be ready for assembling (tool changers, tool heads,
SPINDLES AND HIGH-SPEED SPINDLES
Also complete spindle units and high-speed spindles according both
to the customers drawings and to our own design are built.
The manufacturing range covers small spindles of very high speed
up to 90000 rpm, normal and high-speed spindles for milling
and turning and also spindles for grinding machines for applicable
power rates up to 40 kW. Further to this production, which is essentially
realised for components needed by the end-user, there is a range
of standard products.
These are high-precision devices which are dedicated to the profiling
of ceramic or CBN grinding wheels using a diamond roller. This technology
is still quite unknown in our country, but it improves considerably
the quality and reduces the work times, thus allowing to make complex
parts and to obtain high outputs. There is a wide range of standard
items to be suited to different types of use. Also special solutions
are realised for being integrated in specific or already existing
Further to the direct supply to grinding-machine manufacturers as
original equipment on their new machines, we supply also devices
for the end-users to be mounted on existing machinery so to update
such machines and to allow the use of the newest generation of parts
without any need to replace completely the existing machine. We
offer also a service for installing the devices at the customers
workshop for updating electronics systems on machine tools for the
interfacing with the new equipment.
Due to the features of compactness, precision and versatility these
devices are used also for carrying out operations which differ from
grinding wheel profiling (for example: milling, grinding, etc.).
