OUR STEEL FORGING PROCESS

Vittone strategy is focused on custom made steel forgings, tooling and dies. All assets are managed outside the company and are constantly monitored and audited by Vittone staff, at all levels.

Flexibility has become our policy in order to ensure the best quality results through high standards requirements aiming full service at a cost-effective price.

1. Engineering

 

Starting from customer’s drawings, we implement their raw forging and tooling spec’s through evolved CAD, CAE and CAM (by Vero International, Simufact Forging) allowing us to offer the best technical and economic solutions.

2. Tooling & Dies

We manufacture internally all equipment required in the forging process through CNC machining centers by turning and milling from 3 to 5 axes and with EDM.

3. Forging

Our equipment, forging presses from 1000 to 3500 ton, enable us to cover a wide variety of rough components ranging from 1 kg (2.2 lbs) to 20 kg (44 lbs) approximately. Steel material is heated through electric induction ovens, moreover Vittone uses cold calibration presses. Preforming can be realized with different technologies based on required product to be forged. Such a variety of manufacturing solutions allows us to optimize overall the production, making it more effective and efficient as possible. Automation is present from production to services connected to it, aiming to enhance human labour in those critical stages where added value is needed to be increased.

According to Customer’ Specific Requirements we can machine the parts , making turning operations.

4. Heat Treatments

Do to high percentage of production requiring preliminary heat treatment, we rely on the cooperation of selected partners to ensure the best quality and economic performance.

5. Non Destructive Test

We perform checking & controls using processor-controlled magneto-inductive test and penetrating washable-emulsifiable liquids. Our test devise (Magnatest D) can be supplemented with one or more frequencies. In case of additional tests we cooperate with several certified laboratories. Our skilled staff is certified and continuously trained.
