PRODUCTION STEPS

DRAWINGS/PATTERNS – The patterns are realized starting from the specifications and drawing 2Dor 3D made by the technical department. The patterns are made with the best materials (high quality wood, aluminum, steelas necessary) and checked carefully before placing in production

ENGINEERING – Our engineers and technicians who follow the engineering,
take care of sizing calculations, calculations of the cooling modules,feeds sizing calculations, and simulation study of the times. This process is critical to the success of the pieces.

MOULDING – After the control of sand and resins begins the process of Moulding. At the end of the moulding process in our 3 plants (automatic, semi-automatic and manual) that differ for different applications, the moulds are controlled by the managers of process control.

POURING – The induction furnaces are technologically advanced at the highest existing levels. They are a guarantee of quality and maximum flexibility, small to medium to large lots. The fusion is carefully controlled in timing, temperatures and chemical analysis with the support of the laboratory during the casting process.

QUALITY CONTROLS

HEAT TREATMENTS – They are the most important step of the production. Our treatment furnaces are fully automated and equipped with real-time control of the temperature. In addition, all treatments are recorded and then at the terminal are fully traceable.

QUALITY CONTROLS

FINISHING/SHIPPING – Depending on the type of items and alloys that are realized, it goes to the finishing phase where the pieces are prepared for shipment and where required, are made machining or hardfacing. Follows the step of packaging and shipping to avoid damage to the materials for both domestic and international shipments.

RAW MATERIALS

The FOUNDRY GELLI environmentally friendly and sustainable development perspective, always try to use raw materials derived from scrap metal. Obviously they are monitored and controlled both physically and chemically to guarantee the perfect quality of the final product.

The sands and resins used in production as well as iron-base alloys, which come from certified and qualified suppliers are carefully checked by the technicians of our laboratory.
