The division specialised in railways of DANOBATGROUP continues to expand its market share with a major order from Bombardier Transportation. The Canadian company has awarded the cooperative a contract for the delivery of a DANOBAT underfloor wheel lathe  for the re-profiling of train wheels.

The DLR model (DANOBAT Light Rail) is capable of machining train wheels and brake discs. The machine features an option to work both with the axles still attached to the vehicle or with removed wheelsets and bogies. The many different configurations offer several machining capacities: wheel profile, inside and outside surface of the wheel, brake disks located on the inside or end of the axles as well as on the wheel, etc. Read more

DANOBAT participates in the European project "ZAero"

Zero-defect manufacturing of composite parts in the aerospace industry

In the aerospace industry very high quality standards have to be met. For the manufacturing of carbon fibre parts this is currently solved through extended end-of-line inspection in combination with re-work processes to deal with defective parts. Also, in-situ visual inspection is used for quality control, which is currently causing huge productivity losses during lay-up and has become a real bottleneck in carbon fibre parts manufacturing. ZAero project will provide a solution by developing inline quality control methods for the key process steps: automatic lay-up (dry fibre placement and automatic dry material placement) and curing.

DANOBATGROUP´s precision machining business unit to exhibit at MIDEST 2016

The GOIMEK cooperative, member of the DANOBATGROUP and specialised in precision machining and large part machining will be exhibiting its services at stand E97 at the MIDEST 2016, one of the most important industrial outsourcing trade fairs in the world, which is held annually in Paris.

The trade show is extremely important to this business unit, as France is its natural export market on account of its proximity and the type of service it offers. At the same time, the fair will be a good opportunity to strengthen its position on the French aeronautics market, which is currently the main market in light machining. Also, the event will enable the manufacturer to showcase its heavy machining services since the French market has a great potential for this type of machining, particularly in the capital goods industry.

The company will exhibit its services in light and heavy machining, offering high added value solutions at a competitive cost for the customer. Its light machining services are characterised by its specialisation in prototyping and short runs, knowledge and experience of machining complex materials such as titanium, Inconel, stainless steel, etc. and its extensive experience with aluminium parts. Its heavy machining services are notable for large-sized part machining (up to 60 tons), its capability for producing short, medium and long runs and the possibility of 3D verification of parts up to 6m long. Furthermore, the experience and specialisation in machine tool parts guarantee its capabilities as regards precision and meeting delivery deadlines. Read more

DANOBATGROUP will be present at METALMADRID 2016

Different business units of DANOBATGROUP will be exhibiting on 16 and 17 November at the ninth METALMADRID industrial show.
Displayed on stand AB28 will be the most innovative developments and solutions in:

Sheet metal solutions:

The DANOBAT sheet metal division will exhibit its latest innovations in solutions for metal forming, where its wide range of machines will be displayed (punching machines, laser cutting machines, flexible machines and combined lines for punching-shearing and punching-laser cutting), as well as its new coil fed laser cutting machine, the LB model. This new solution has the principal purpose of achieving a significant saving in the processed material and a large increase in productivity by reducing machine dead times.
All these DANOBAT systems are produced in accordance with the needs of each customer, for this reason the metal sheet applications covered by DANOBAT are truly broad. Read more

DANOBAT has developed two highly versatile grinding machines for large parts machining for the company Grupos Diferenciales

Customised Grinders for Large Part Machining

Customised Grinders for Large Part Machining

DANOBAT has been developing two highly versatile grinding machines for Grupos Diferenciales. These grinders will make it possible to turn, grind and measure large parts using a high-efficiency process that ensures the utmost quality.

The challenge

Grupos Diferenciales, which specialises in producing high-tech gears for mechanical transmissions used in sectors such as the automotive industry, maritime transport, railway and aeronautics, performs technologically advanced tasks while providing high added value, using difficult to machine materials with close tolerances.

In its ongoing search for new technological solutions to increase its efficiency and competitiveness, there was a need to find a flexible, adaptable solution that could be highly customised, making it possible to finish the parts in a single set-up. Read more

The new DANOBAT coil fed laser cutting system will be showcased at Euroblech trade show

DANOBAT at EUROBLECH 2016

DANOBAT at EUROBLECH 2016

The Sheet Metal division of DANOBAT will be at next EUROBLECH exhibition (October25-29) with a 300 sqm Stand (hall 12, booth B103), where its new coil fed fiber laser cutting line will be exhibited. This new solution's primary goal is to achieve significant savings in the materials to be processed and an increase in productivity as a result of reduced machine downtimes.

It is a highly productive solution, which takes full advantage of all the benefits offered by fiber laser cutting technology (efficiency, speed, versatility, minimal maintenance, etc.), as well as the benefits arising from the use of metal coils (up to 15% savings in materials cost and improved sheet utilisation, being capable of cutting different types of parts simultaneously).
