subcontractingMain challenges and requirements

Flexibility is for sure the first requirement in the subcontracting field. Large number of applications with varying material, thickness, dimensions, profiles and quantities are the daily challenges of subcontractors.

All processes are involved in this field: punching, shearing, laser cutting and welding, bending, etc.

Together with versatility, also low hourly costs and fast setup times are mandatory. Competition is tough and offering high quality at low costs and in the shortest time is a winning strategy.

Ease of use is also essential in the choice of machinery. The continuous changes of production type have to be managed in the simplest and fastest way. Unattended operation is also more and more required to increase productivity.

Smart automatic loading-unlading systems and automatic storages are extremely beneficial. They allow to increase the availability of the machines, reducing the time for the material supply. Furthermore, storages are a warehouse for raw material and finished components, reducing also the space requirement.

The metallic components requested are more and more sophisticated and the component lifetime is increasingly shorter
