Studies for the identification of limits and inconsistencies between the product proposed by the customer and the production process.
PART CASTING TIMES AND METHODS AND ESTIMATION
Evaluation of the investments necessary for the job, with the definition and design of the component moulding and finishing cycles.
Possibility of improving the production of the product, by optimising draught angles, machining allowances, lightenings and other solutions conceived especially for the individual project.
DESIGN OF THE HIGH PRESSURE DIE-CASTING MOULDINGS
We design the mouldings based on our internal best practices, adopting all the tools necessary to meet the quality criteria requested for the final component.
Virtualisation of the moulding process in order to verify the suitability of the choices made during the design of the moulds and predictive identification of the main foundry defects.
We follow our suppliers during the creation of the mouldings, defining precise supply specifications, and agreeing on the manufacturing plan and relative milestones with them. We carry out regular inspections to monitor the progress of the works, guiding our activities with specific check lists for the delivery of the moulds. All our suppliers are located within a 100 km radius from our headquarters, so we can supply a quick, reactive service.
We are the interface between the production and the customer for studying the implementation of new technologies.

The mechanical machining activities begin with the co-design phase, where EDiM works in tandem with the customer to verify the feasibility of the process. This enables a continuous improvement of the product’s quality performances, an improved production stability on terms of assembly and the traceability of the single workpiece.
The activities also include the design of the automation concept and the feeder line necessary to test the component as per the requested design, which usually involves tightness and compression tests.
As standard, our lines are fully automated and, thanks to the optimisation of the robot-workpiece handling, the tests requested by the customer can be carried out automatically on 100% of the processed codes, as well as 3D measurements of dimensional and geometric quotas.
Thanks also to the integrated foundry and machining process, we are capable of supplying a superior traceability level, including in a single Data Matrix Code all the information about the unprocessed workpiece and the processed piece, so that we have immediate, precise control over the entire production chain.
OVER 120 MECHANICAL MACHINING CENTRES, INCLUDING:
CNCs (single spindle)
CNCs (double spindle)
for specific products
We develop in-house the design of the clamping system and the programming of robot cycles and interfaces; such as PLC programming, marking systems, data collection systems, 2D and 3D vision systems and automatic quality control.
We also have a 3D printer for creating prototypes that reflect the castings requested by our customers, in addition to tools for handling workpieces on automatic lines.
Automation is a distinctive feature of EDiM which works on innovative projects, such as the Milkrun project.
The Milkrun and every machining cell in foundry and machining processes, are supervised by a single data collection and analysis system, also created internally: P-Matic manages the production data and collateral information for both sites, which can always be consulted, including: monitoring raw material consumption, energy sources, life of moulds, life of machining tools, alloy degassing cycles, critical process temperatures, maintenance, recording the results of quality tests, of the quantities and types of waste in the various production steps and much more.
