VILLARTA DE SAN JUAN, SPAIN — Symaga has added a double column eccentric press to its factory, tripling the productivity for large progressive dies.
The line has a feeder, with a precision of 0.01 mm and an optimal speed. The extraction belt is automatic, fulfilling the automation objective of Symaga’s factory.
A SGA module and MES system will be implemented in the second half of this year. SGA will optimize the reception of materials, inventory and storage system, and improve order preparation and loading process. The new MES will add to quality and manufacturing control.
Symaga has another project already underway to extend its Growket building to a total of 1,000 square meters to improve the distribution area of this factory section.
Symaga’s Continuous Investment Plan targets an annual minimal investment of €3 million. In 2015, automatization was extended to 80% of the manufacturing processes. In 2018 the company brought productivity up by 30% in punching and profiling lines. In late 2019, a new drilling system was acquired, and the welding and bending lines were improved. In 2020, alongside the roll out of a new ICT infrastructure, a photovoltaic solar energy generation plant was installed.
“This continuous investment in new technologies and human resources brings about a manufacturing excellence and quality, one of Symaga silos’ top value-added propositions,” Symaga said.
