The Gipuzkoa Provincial Government integrates GOIMEK’s digital experience into the Gipuzkoa 4.0 Network for Advanced Manufacture

GOIMEK Gipuzkoa 4.0 Fabrikazio Aurreratuko Sarean

GOIMEK´s digital experience in Gipuzkoa 4.0 network

In recent years, there has been an increasing trend to include information and communication technologies into industry that is transforming manufacturing environments.

The connection of production equipment to capture real-time data on what is happening in the machine and in the machining process allows decisions to be made with a thorough knowledge of all the variables that affect the manufacturing process, and make it possible to progress towards increasingly intelligent factories and more efficient and flexible production systems.

SORALUCE presents the new multitasking gantry type portal milling turning machine PXG-19000-W for large components

SORALUCE presents the new multitasking gantry type portal milling turning machine PXG-19000-W for large components

SORALUCE presents the new multitasking gantry type portal milling turning machine

Machining large size components requires very specific skills and machines capable of ensuring maximum precision on heavy duty components, to guarantee the productivity and reliability demanded by this sector to compete on the market.

In addition to centesimal tolerances on large workpieces, which can weigh hundreds of tons, today, a machine dedicated to these types of components needs to be capable of dealing with extremely complex machining operations, reducing the number of workpiece set-ups as far as possible and likewise, cycle times and possible errors. The machine must respond to multitasking and versatility requirements as well to avoid different set-ups or moving the components to different machines. Read more

New order from Bombardier Transportation for the installation of an underfloor wheel lathe

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

SORALUCE unveils its entire new generation at its centre of excellence in Germany

Technology days 2016

Technology days 2016

The European machine tool manufacturer, specialising in milling, boring and turning, showcased its high value added technological proposal at its 6th Technology Days, which are also marking the 25th anniversary of the BIMATEC SORALUCE Centre of Excellence in Limburg.

With a total of over 800 European, American and Asian customers in attendance, SORALUCE showcased its latest innovations and developments, under real machining conditions, by means of a Technology Tour where nine milling, boring and multipurpose machines were on display. During the tour, the capacities of each machine were illustrated with live demonstrations, which included impressive examples such as the use of the DAS technology that has recently been recognised as the Quality Innovation of the Year and taken the Best of Industry Award, along with the innovative DAS for tooling.

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.

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).

GOIMEK extends its machining capacity

  • The investment is part of the strategic commitment of the company focused on offering advanced machining processes for strategic parts for demanding sectors, involving the design of custom solutions adapted to the needs of each client.
  • The expansion of the machine park is yet another step forward in 4.0 manufacturing in which all equipment is interconnected to adapt to a growing demand for parts with high added value in a more flexible manner.

GOIMEK, part of the DANOBATGROUP and specialised in precision machining and large machining further widens its production capacity with the purchase of a cutting edge SORALUCE FP-16000 multi-function machining center.

Thanks to this new purchase, the cooperative not only increases its current production capacities, but also enhances its quality service for high-precision parts. Furthermore, the investment will expand the existing range of capacities: apart from grinding and milling now also turning is offered, a new technology not included so far in the extensive machine park of the company.
