Home » New valve and manifold thread lathes: precision, productivity and environmental respect
The search for product quality begins with the production process, which must be efficient and able to guarantee maximum precision. As a result, it is essential to be able to count on machining centres equipped with the most modern technical innovations, centres that unite machining accuracy with reduced production times.
Tool machine renewal, in line with the development of industrial technology, is an important asset for a company that wants to give a more efficient answer every day to market demands.
Two new CNC lathes were recently added to the Mondeo machine bay: the new machines make the threaded components that are then TIG welded to valves and manifolds.
The lathes produce both male and female threads, conical or cylindrical.
They are fast enough to increase production capacity by 20% while still maintaining the required quality standards.
The new machining centres are programmed with cutting-edge software technology, and are connected to the company network according to the principles of Industry 4.0. This means that the machines can be programmed remotely, and that the progress state of the order can be checked at any moment, for optimal order management.
They are extremely reliable machines with very simple maintenance, reducing downtime to a minimum.
Another very important aspect is sustainability. The new lathes were designed to face environmental challenges, inevitable for a production model aimed at responsibility. Thanks to their reduced consumption of lubricant and energy, they are a valid company asset when it comes to respecting natural resources.
