Vetimec is one of the biggest Italian toolmakers located in Bologna.
We design, develop and manufacture die casting dies up to 60 tons weight, low pressure & gravity moulds, core boxes and special tools, tending to the absolute quality and reliability.
Our main products are automotive components (such as engine blocks, gearboxes, clutch housing, oil pans, cylinder heads) and structural components (such as car frames, roof frame cross members) in aluminum and magnesium alloys.
The strength of the company is in the design area. Also thanks to the available technologically advanced systems, the engineering department can both design the tools accordingly to the customers’ needs and, tending to the full satisfaction of the customer, give a complete and constant assistance by developing the product starting from the filling simulation till the production start-up. Vetimec has built during the years dynamic relationships with its customers based on the complete confidence between the parties, leading to high technical solutions. These results have been reached by keeping the utmost care in paying attention to the customers’ requirements under absolute privacy.
With the target of supplying die casting dies ready for production, Vetimec offers to its customers a sampling and pre-series service.
In our sampling center, equipped with 3 die casting machines (Italpresse 4200tons, Italpresse 2700tons, Wotan 1100tons equipped with ABB robots, jet cooling device and Vacuum system) and 1 Fata bench for gravity casting, we can simulate the production process of a wide range of die casting dies by setting the die casting parameters under mutual agreement with the customer.
The inspection department acts as a support to the foundry and checks, thanks to the 3D measuring machines, the dimensional precision of the obtained castings and the metallurgical quality using the dedicated X-ray machine. Vetimec grants to its customers a repair service to solve any problem relevant to the die maintenance.
We are available to develop together with the customers an integrated maintenance plan ranging from the supply of spare parts to the die maintenance service performed by high-specialized teams. Vetimec represents the mechanical area and the managing direction of a group active on different business sectors, with more than 190 employees and an annual turnover of about 35 million Euros.
