CECAMASA closes the sale of a plate bending machine in South America

casanovas plate bender

The team of CECAMASA comes back to work after summer holidays. In CECAMASA we finished the month of July by closing the sale of a SERTOM-CASANOVAS 4-roll hydraulic bending machine with a client from South America. In fact, during these weeks of August the plate bender has traveled overseas in container to its destination. It is a large used plate bender with a maximum bending length of 3050 mm and a bending capacity of 50 mm. A machine equipped with control for the benders, hydraulic L-rafter and lateral supports.

The logistics process which involves the shipping of this machine or any other machine of a certain size is not easy. And if this machine is shipped abroad there are additional risks as the journey is longer. That is why it is vital to know how to carry out the loading, in that way, during the manipulation of the machine, it will not not suffer any damage and to guarantee that it willl arrive safe and sound at destination.

Our team of technicians has a vast experience in this field and they care along the whole process by taking all the necessary precautions. For this purpose they carry out a study of the machine to be immobilized. Many aspects have to be taken into account: from the dimensions and weight of the load, the type of transport tha is going to be used, mooring angles, the friction factors and so on. Nothing can be left to chance. The machine must be supported using the means or elements that are necessary to prevent and avoid blows, displacements, friction, etc. In the specific case of the above-mentioned bending machine, the biggest challenge its load presented was due to the weight of 52 tons of the body of the machine.It was necessary to use a special Mafi team for its transport.

Find below a few photos of the loading process of the above-mentioned bending machine. In that way, you will see for yourselves, the great job made by our mechanics:

CECAMASA: vast experience in exporting machines

Although in CECAMASA we have a large portfolio of domestic clients, we do not neglect the international sphere either. We have sold machining centers to clients in Argentina, moving column milling machines to Mexico, cnc lathes with inclined bed to Turkey, and thus a long list of machines and countries. Experience that supports us and that speaks for itself. Despite the difficult times we are going through, we are delighted to see that companies around the world are struggling to get ahead. And it is that adversity manages to bring out our most creative side. There is a Galician saying that says that need teaches more than university and perhaps popular wisdom is right again. So we are especially proud of this latest sale of a bending machine to South America in such current difficult times.

CECAMASA: balance of the first semester of 2020

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic especially suffered during this second trimester of this turbulent 2020 have meant without any kind of doubt a setback in the economic activity of the companies. Unfortunately CECAMASA has not been an exception. However, after implementing the due security protocols stablised by regulations, our team of mechanics has not been interrupted its daily work in the workshop. It was necessary to meet the deadlines of the orders comitted before the lockdown. And now we are in the called "new normality", the statistics of the sector are not very optimistic. In fact, the president of the AFMEC (the Spanish Association of Contract Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering), Mr Alberto Perez outlines for an interview made by Metal Industry that according to his estimates: "commercial activity in the national market is 65% of normal and in the international market is 40%." In CECAMASA we trust that the sector, despite the current situation, will be able to reverse the damage suffered and return to a more optimistic scenario.

In this sense, CECAMASA has proposed to help the business fabric and the self-employed by making available capital equipment renting financing. In this way, we intend to contribute our grain of sand so that business projects are not paralyzed for a purely economic issue. We recommend that you read our July post "Machinery renting, an attractive alternative to buying” to learn more about this topic.

FACCIN
is a leading company which designs and manufactures bending rolls to bend metal sheet, profile bending machines and dished head machinery.

The company was set up in the decade of the 60's and it rapidly specialized in the manufacture of heavy bending roll machines. FACCIN's approach to technological innovation and the continuous investment in R+D has made possible to gain a reputation of quality and reliability in the market. Thanks to its advances in the bending technique, FACCIN has become a world benchmark for bending technology.

Its production of machinery is based in Visano (Brescia), in the industrial Northern Italy. The FACCIN SRL premises cover an area of 60,000 m2, 15,000m2 of them are destined to manufacture and 1,250 m2 for office space.

FACCIN actively invests in new equipment to achieve being involved in all the aspects of the production of its machines. The Italian company is involved in all the stages of the process: from the building of electrowelded structures to the machining of the rolls. In that way, FACCIN has the direct control above the productive processes, monitoring each step "at home" and guarantee a total quality.

The internal design office of FACCIN works in a modern net with the latest software versions of CAD 2D and 3D, by using methods of finite elements (MEF) for the structural seizing. The production, orders, design, construction, machining, thermal treatment, stock and assembly are completely computerize through a modern software of corporate resources installed in the entire net of the company. The organization is controlled according to the protocols established in the standards of the ISO 9000.

Along with the purchase of new systems of generation and production, FACCIN has invested in internal resources in R+D. That pro-active attitude gave to FACCIN the chance to present to the worldwide market the first complete bending line of metal sheet with electronic synchronization of the bending axis (MCS), in 1988 the graphical numerical control more advanced (CNC-PGS) and in 1993 the most advance FMS solution for the complete bending with loading and unloading robots and constant control of the bending radius with automatic compensation of the bending parameters.

The integration of the design of tailor-made applications for the post-sales support, - through a sales net and technical centers specialized in just roll bending machines -, offer the most complete and high service, in that way FACCIN has become the ideal partner for solving any bending requirement and the supplier to choose in the third millennium.

SERTOM CASANOVAS plate bending machine

Information about the used SERTOM-CASANOVAS 4 roll bending machine

The second-hand SERTOM CASANOVAS 4 roll bending machine is mainly characterized by three aspects:
