MACCHI, Optimisation of production through multifunction capabilitiesBoth turning and milling operations with one single machine configuration

Challenge

Milling and turning operations in one single set-up for components for industrial oil and gas boilers and heat recovery steam generators for cogeneration plants. Machining of highly complex pieces requiring deep milling, boring and turning in one single configuration.

Solution

  • SORALUCE FMT 4000 multifunctional milling-turning centre
  • Two working areas: milling-turning table and floor plate
  • Multifunctional head for milling and turning operations
  • Machining process in one single set-up, so that the level of precision is always the same.
  • Reduced piece handling time

“Although we only started working with SORALUCE a few months back, I can safely say that up to now they have met all our expectations with their excellent work. By requiring a lower handling time, we obtain a better product at a lower cost, greater productivity as a greater number of pieces can be machined, in half the normal time, and increasing the range of products for supply.”

Interview

Antoni Michael Caprioli, Managing Director

Why did you choose SORALUCE as a partner?

We were searching for a machine that could perform both turning and milling operations with one single configuration. The process is performed with one single set-up, ensuring that the precision is always the same. By requiring a lower handling time, we obtain a better product at a lower cost, greater productivity as a greater number of pieces can be machined, in half the normal time, and increasing the range of products for supply.

What can you tell us about the reliability of the machines?

During negotiations with SORALUCE, we outlined our business needs: to create pieces of great complexity requiring extremely deep milling or boring, and, obviously, in one single configuration. Under no circumstances did we wish to exceed the original solutions provided by SORALUCE, in order to remain within the concept of standardisation. What does this mean for us, as clients of SORALUCE? Basically it means having a reliable machine.
