In July 2013, a large foundry in Roncadelle, in the province of Brescia, asked us to design a plant that could automatically form bundles of billets (exiting the drawing line) and strap them, while maintaining the classic hexagonal structure.
Although we had never designed a similar plant, our technical department immediately got down to work to find an optimal solution and, within a few weeks, the request was processed at design level and was presented to the customer, gaining interest and immediate enthusiasm.
So, after the planning and definition briefing, fabrication of the fully automated bundle formation plant got underway. An ambitious and sophisticated design, fully integrated with an extensive use of electronics, capable of handling the various bundle formation methods according to various parameters, such as billet diameter and length.
When the production process was complete, it was time to install everything at the customer’s premises and thanks to our teams of specialised workers and electricians, work was completed quickly and in a functional manner.
In recent years, the customer, satisfied with the design, manufacturing and consultancy solutions offered by CIF srl established an ongoing collaborative relationship, commissioning 4 additional facilities for other drawing lines in the facility. Work that has allowed us to further refine our skills and experience in this specific area and develop with additional minor process improvements.
