In the beginning, most of the casting process (castings removal, mould lubrication/surface heating, metal pouring, etc.) was performed manually. Then, starting from the 80’s and 90’s, automatic and controlled processes were gradually introduced: robotic systems, automatic trimming and gate, runner removal, quenching tanks. In 2012, self-regulating heaters were added, and are still integrated in most of our machines.
It is easy to see that building-improvement and automation have always gone hand in hand.
The company, once located in one plant, has grown to a 21,772 square meters facility and 8488 of floor area. It now employs 58 employees, and houses a melting area, 5 furnaces, 2 die casting facilities, a tool workshop, a warehouse, and 3 storage areas for semi-processed and processed products. A waterproof parking spreading across 2000 sm floor area is also available for customers and employees to use.
