The turning Technologies employed by the Group are state-of-the-art in their specific fields, thanks to long-term cooperation with some of the world’s leading manufacturers – such as SHUETTE, INDEX, EMAG, TRAUB, STAR and others.
At present, the Group can call upon an installed base of over 100 machines such as multiple-chuck lathes (which can handle bars with Ø13 to 67 mm), semi-automatic, automatic and CNC lathes, and Swiss-type lathes.
This wealth of equipment with advanced technology enables the Group to execute processing procedures for many different types of materials and to very high standards of precision (a tolerance range with errors of ±0.003 mm in multiple-chuck turning).
In modern industry, drilling and milling operations must necessarily involve transfer technologies.
That’s why the Group supplements machinery from leading companies (Mikron, Pfiffner, Wirth & Gruffat) with internally built machines and custom-made systems, in order to develop creative solutions that meet a fundamental requirement: supplying the finished component.
Brovedani currently has a number of machining stations (Brother, Chiron) with 25 tools, and more than 30 Brovedani automatic transfer units for total automation of loading, unloading, drilling, cutting and deburring operations. And the same number of machines are used for automatic control, sorting by class, assembly, and packaging of components.
Precision finishing results in high product precision, with dimensional tolerances down to a micron and roughness below Rz1.
The added value offered by this type of processing is a strong point of Brovedani quality. And, this superior quality is constantly maintained by large investments in technology, as demonstrated by the numerous machines used for single or double side flat lapping/microgrinding (PeterWolters, Sthaeli, Viotto), lapping of internal areas (Supfina, Sunnen) and polishing (Bula, etc.).
In cooperation with S&M Engineering Department (Special Machine & Engineering Systems) and some external suppliers, we can adapt, design and produce specific machines for a wide range of different typologies of assemblies. These machines may integrate different types of control and measurement parameters.
The Group has recently enhanced its installed base by adding modern ultrasound washing systems that can clean parts and components to ISO/FDIS 18413 standards. A cleanliness level below 2 mg/1000 cm2 is thus obtained, and a sophisticated optical control system monitors the process.
Examining in greater detail with an artificial vision system. Employing digital eyes and then elaborating this “gaze” to identify any defects in surface quality that have eluded dimensional checks.
This process also involves “looking inside” and detecting unpredictable anomalies in the production process, both to meet today’s expectations of quality and to retroactively improve substandard procedures which did not seem to affect quality.
