THE PRODUCTION CYCLE
The company has a complete production cycle, with particular and specific characteristics according to the standard articles made in its internal. It is provided of a great flexibility that makes it possible to work out the production series, and also special models manufactured following specific requirements of customers. Here is a quick description of the main cycle, which better points out the potential of the company.
WOOD-WORK AND CUTTING PREPARATION WORKSHOP
Several traditional machineries, multi-blade cutting lines, double angular cutting plant allow to produce components of each single panel (stripsclosure lining) and provisional pre-assembly of the main frames (fir-frame).
HONEYCOMB PANEL CONSTRUCTION PRESSING PLANT
Real panel construction: the inside components are assembled.
– Automatic loading (and unloading) through cupping.
– Preparation of the stiffening honeycomb (Ta Pro Lite 50 system).
– Gluing (E1 glues also natural rice components) and assembly of the main.
– Honeycomb frames and the closure lining.
– Warm pressing with double levels press (Double Deck system).
SQUARING, PRE-EDGING AND NUMBERING
In one phase panels are worked on 4 edges, this way:
– automatic loading (and unloading) through vacuum cups
– squaring and measure of the longest sides;
– eventual milling solid wood on the longest sides (the edges are covered with wood)
– squaring and measure of the shortest sides;
– eventual milling solid wood on the shortest sides.
PREPARATION OF VENEER
Veneered sheets are prepared in precious wood (1mm/0.6 mm thick) which are used to cover the panels. Several steps of “tailoring” working are made while preparing the wood sheets: selection, control, numbering, cutting and sewing. The numbering will indicate the original tree trunk to get doors of the same colours.
PANEL COVERING CALIBRATION AND PRESSING LINE
The panel is covered with precious veneered kind of wood:
– Phase of loading
– refining thickness
– gluing with Double-Deck system (C 80°\90°water – min. 1’.15” \ cycle).
Component parts are assembled together, the panel is manufactured.
FINAL SQUARING, EDGING AND DRILLING
The shaping, sanding and the polishing of the lateral edges of the panel are made in only two steps (up to 9-10 work operations each passage).
– sanding plane;
– shaping edges;
– fine sanding edges up-under-side;
– polishing up to 5 hands soon dried;
– upside down turning;
– 3D robot finishing spraying step with operator supervising check without contact.
FININSHING-POLISHING OF PANELS SURFACE FINISHING PLANT
The surface of the panel is sanded and polished in only two steps.
Loading, sanding plane, filling pore, fine sanding, polishing up to 5 hands soon dried, extra fine sanding, final finishing, drying in vertical oven, upside down turning for second passage.
Many kinds of finishing cycles are possible (water finish, acrilic uv finish, pef, … ).
SPRAYING ROBOT 2D PLANT
Special framed panels or little pieces to be finished with colours on request and product are polished. The operator is not in touch with the painting area and checks visually from outside. A scanner reads the shape of the panels to be worked and directs the robot which sprays painting following the shape of the panels; drying in vertical oven.
MEASURED CUTTING AREA – SPECIAL PIECES
This department manages the “just in time” orders. Measured cutting and manufacture of special pieces are made by a working which is both manual and automatic operations. Main operations: cutting, remaking, correcting, edging, refining, finishing. Shaped special desks CNC construction on design.
PICK UP AND ASSEMBLY
Automatic and manual operations of pick-up and final check of components. Automatic CNC plants make customized drills according to the orders and requests of the customers. Selection, quality control of panels and pieces of furniture; assembly of pieces and hardware and cabinets. Immediate packaging of panels or mounted cabinets.
LOADING AND SHIPPING
Each composition packaged and stocked in warehouse is gathered by picking up of component panels, cabinets, complements and accessories. Labelling and loading of packages and accessories regarding deliveries to be carried out.
S.T.E. SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTS PROTOTYPING
In the prototyping area new products are projected, developed, manufactured and tested, modified and industrialized, considering all the aspects of production and life cycle. The entire area of production is also place for tests, experiments, research and development of new products and production processes.
AUXILIAR PLANTS AND INTEGRATED SERVICES
Auxiliary plants also show the real care, attention and true passion of Delo for environment. Among them, the aspiration plant must be pointed out. It automatically picks up sawdust and chips, and sends them to the stocking towers: it’s very important to keep clean and hygienically safe each production step and area: working in maximum order and cleanliness is imperative to secure high quality and perfection in finishes. The thermal power plant rationalizes the employ of clean combustible (methane, bio masses) and optimizes its power returns: apart from warming the buildings, it produces hot water for technical processes, like pressing plants, drying batteries useful to gluing and finishing operations, with energetic recover, like real spare of electric power and without employ of combustible oils. Vanguard choices for a company that considers health, environment and quality as important factors of every productive option.
