Constantly increasing the foreign contacts for CAMSER’s subcontracting Division...

The experience of the CAMSER subcontracting companies represents the concrete example of how structured promotional activities on international markets can open new frontiers abroad also for our subcontracting companies. The participation at the Hannover Messe in April 2015 in Germany confirmed the positive perspectives created through a constant and progressive approach to the foreign markets. About 60 qualified and interested contacts were gathered during the trade fair, where LAMIPRESS and MILLTECH exhibited for the second consecutive year. The visitors to the stand came mainly from Germany, Northern and Central Europe, but also from far markets such as India, Brasil and CIS. With more than 220 000 visitors, whose 70 000 coming outside Germany, Hannover Messe is one of the most significant trade fairs for the mechanical sector. The internationalization process of the CAMSER Subcontracting Division, which started on 2012 with the participation at the SWISSTECH fair in Basel, confirmed the capacity of our companies to operate successfully abroad. Their competitiveness in terms of technical and executive skills and quotations was directly confirmed onsite. Thanks to the co-operation and the synergies among the companies, the services and the financial support provided by CAMSER, the subcontracting companies increased, year after year, the number of their foreign contacts with very positive business perspectives. The 2014 export turnover of some of the companies registered an increase of an average of 10- 15 per cent, with a peak of 20 per cent in these first months 2015. All these positive results were reached also thanks to the shared and individual introduction of qualified human resources. These employees have solid linguistic knowledge and organizing skills and are therefore able to manage in a proper way the international...

Businaro’s revolution: the new system for sharpening industrial circular saws that dramatically increases performance...

Today we look at the success story of Businaro, a company specializing in the design and manufacture of sharpening machines for industrial cutting blades. Briefly speaking, this success story shows how decisive the two following factors were in beating the competition: a) the ability to radically innovate our product with respect to markets standards, achieving performances that would be unimaginable following the traditional construction standards; b) the ability to offer a reliable and efficient worldwide customer service. These two combined elements guarantee a very high level of customer satisfaction, making Businaro a leader in the field of sharpeners for industrial circular saws, for customers who demand faster set-up and sharpening times than what the market standards have to offer. What was the challenging request that the customer made of Businaro? “Sharpening industrial cutting blades (mainly circular saws) may seem a trivial operation to the untrained eye. But it is worth remembering that the saws we sharpen work on machines that have an hourly rate varying from 3,000.00 € to 5,000.00 €. This means that a machine downtime even of a few minutes generates very high costs for our customers. For this reason, Businaro’ sharpening machines must ensure maximum cutting reliability during all work shifts. In addition, we should not forget that our sharpening machines can be designed for different metal materials and for performing in increasingly shorter times. A US company submitted to us the request to be able to rely on a faster sharpening machine than the industry standard, which could be handled even by unskilled personnel, and to perform saw replacement operations at the end of a shift and not during, as it sometimes happens.” What were the main issues? ‘Businaro therefore had to successfully deal with the following three...

Wiring: when organization makes the difference – The Cablotech success story...

Today we look at the success story of Cablotech, a company specializing in the manufacture of wiring, switchboards, and electro-pneumatic and electromechanical assembly. Briefly speaking, this success story shows how decisive Cablotech’s organizational and managerial ability were in getting the order. As a matter of fact, the customer required very short processing and delivery times (less than 70% on average compared to those offered by the market) as well as zero manufacturing defects. What was the challenging request that the customer made of Cablotech? “A historic company in the province of Bologna, working in the field of airport technology, contacted us to supply 24 electronic power packs of 10 and 20 kVA for a big Italian airport. However, we were required to deliver within just 10 days. The job order included the development of the internal wiring and the complete electromechanical assembly of the parts, for a total commitment of 700 work hours. We received this challenging request in June 2013; the customer had previously not found an adequate response on the market, due to the extremely narrow timeframe for the performance of the work. In fact, generally, a contract of this type involves a lead-time of about 30 days between procuring the material and the complete execution of the assembly.” What were the main issues? “This job was clearly quite critical, in terms of the extremely short timeframe we had to get our supplies, manufacture the internal wiring, and assemble the power packs. A further difficulty for our technicians was the need to detect the technical features of the wiring from a simple representative sample of a power pack. In so doing, we were able to functionally test each power pack, avoiding assembly and wiring errors”. What solutions did...

How Lamipress dramatically improved the mass production of stamped sheet metal parts by means of innovative automation...

A major Italian home furnishing company needed to mass produce a small metallic component. This company had previously entrusted the job to a subcontractor, who however had not been able to satisfy the customer. Two were the main issues: Consistently late deliveries (due to the large quantities required: about one million pieces per month), High percentage of rejects. Thanks to positive word of mouth regarding the expertise of our company, the manufacturer turned to Lamipress to evaluate a possible trial order with the purpose of gauging our abilities. What was the challenging request that the customer made of Lamipress? The main issues were: producing the required quantity (one million pieces per month) in the time set by the customer, with a quality standard able to reduce the percentage of rejects to zero. What solutions did you propose and what were factors that helped you in getting the job order? Our technical department studied the issue and it became immediately clear that to obtain such a large number of pieces in a standard and reliable way, it was necessary to automate the production process of these metal parts by working on an innovative solution that would concentrate the different work stages through a specially designed automated system. Please consider that 4 work stages are currently needed to manufacture this product, generally corresponding to 4 distinct and specialized suppliers; out of these four, one is automated trimming, whereas the other three are based on manual work. The latter are ‘bottlenecks’ reducing productivity and increasing the risk of production defects. Thus, Lamipress designed and manufactured a customized automatic machine capable of delivering the whole production in a single step, with in-line quality control of 100% of the parts. With respect to what the traditional market offers, Lamipress’...

How an innovative electromechanical actuator can improve workplace safety – The Mecvel success story...

Today we look at the success story of Mecvel, a company specialized in the design and production of linear actuators and screw jacks. This case basically shows how Mecvel’s ability for product innovation and integration of different specializations was decisive in securing the job order. The customer, who operates in the high voltage business, required a solution that could reduce worker exposure to electromagnetic fields and drastically knock down response/issue resolution time in case of emergency, through faster access to the high voltage lever. What was the challenging request that the customer made of Mecvel? “A company in Northern Europe that produces high-voltage cabins asked us to improve the electromechanical system they were using to turn power on and off. Their system entailed maintenance and control by their technical staff. These operations were considered somewhat dangerous to the maintenance staff and the company wanted to guarantee greater work safety for their employees. They then turned to Mecvel to seek a motion automation solution that would enable them to remote control the high voltage lever. The Mecvel company specializes in the production of actuators, adaptors, jacks, shafts, couplings, and customized solutions for linear motion through the use of electronic systems combined with mechanical engineering.” What were the main issues? “The main issue of the customer’s current system at the time had to do with the health and safety of the maintenance workers and high voltage technicians. In order to act on the high voltage control lever, they had to work inside the cabin, which is subjected to electromagnetic fields under normal working conditions. Moreover, in case of an emergency, operators would have to remove mechanical parts and related cam levers in order to disengage the lever actuator by hand and turn...
