SYMACH EXPANDS PRODUCTION CAPACITY
Symach is designing a cutting-edge 3,000sqm technical department in the 16,000sqft facility at Calderara di Reno, Bologna, Italy.
It will be equipped with a complete TRUMPF machining line including a TruPunch 3000 Sheetmaster machine for cutting sheet metal and loading, unloading and selecting parts, as well as a TruBend Series 5000 bending machine.
‘TRUMPF is the world leader in sheet metal processing automation,’ said Osvaldo Bergaglio, owner and president of Symach. ‘We are making a significant investment of approximately €1.5m in this equipment, which will provide Symach with the best tooling for optimizing production and having direct control over the quality of our products.’
In addition, it will increase production capacity by almost five times. Bergaglio said this will allow Symach to reduce delivery times and costs, as well as the ever-increasing quality assurance of the company’s product.
The machine installation is scheduled for January 2018 and the department is expected to be fully operational in March 2018.
‘We take pride in supporting our customers in the customization of their bodywork and in staff training,’ said Bergaglio. ‘We plan to continue investing in technology and product research and focus on continuous innovation as a key to success.’
There are now more than 70 customers around the world utilising the Symach FixLine model.
