Vertical Lathe

Maternini increases his production potential!

A new machine tool has permanently become part of the MDM machine fleet in the internal department of mechanical machining. This is a double column vertical lathe, model TCD-320. Through its vertical spindle, this innovative machine is capable of offering two fundamental operations in the world of mechanical constructions: turning and milling. Its 2,5 meter platform, the support base for the various pieces, allows the turning of diameters up to a maximum of 3,2 meters with a maximum height of 2 meters and a maximum loadable weight of 25 tons. PCD tools can be assembled in order to obtain the desired shapes in the most precise and rapid way. At the same time, tools dedicated to specific milling can also be installed and used for this particular process. In fact, this multi-task machine is equipped with a double rotating magazine containing 16 different tools for turning and 16 for milling. A Siemens CNC numerical control guarantees maximum reliability for safely obtaining the shape and tolerances required for each piece designed by the Maternini Technical Office. The use of this lathe will allow an increase in skills in the construction of Davide Maternini machinery and also a greater mastery in phases of the production cycle which will guarantee MDM brand products even more reliable and solid.

Deforming Machine

Celebration of 75th anniversary of Davide Maternini SPA

On September 4th, it has been celebrated the 75th anniversary of the foundation of Davide Maternini Spa with an event that involved all employees and their families.

This event was strongly desired and organized not only to celebrate the company’s 75 years of activity but also and above all to express our gratitude to all the employees who contribute day by day with their efforts and their reliability to the growth of this working reality.

Despite the difficulties and new challenges that arise every day, we are ready to continue with the same dedication and enthusiasm. Grateful for your trust we hope that the working partnership will remain fruitful… for the next 75 years (and beyond)!


MDM 560-CN-5A

CNC turning operation with two axes more specially developed for the forming of grinding gear wheels!

Dear Customers, Maternini team is proud to present you a new entry in our lathe machinery range. The continuous development in the field of finishing of vitrified/ceramic wheels led us to the launch of this new equipment mainly focused on a specific shape but, of course, even able to work-out traditional processing of a CNC MDM machine. Lathe MDM 560 CN-5A is particularly dedicated to the modelling of spiral shapes for rectification of gears and, as our standard, for the forming of dedicated designs as well as finishing of surfaces, ODs and IDs of wheels. Main secret of this machine is given by its particular engineering. Thanks to the motion of its axes and, in particular, of the turning table and spindle, machine is able to perform a huge number of works and different profiles. Regarding sizes and dimensions of the wheels to be handled, lathe MDM 560 CN-5A is able to work maximum up to 560 mm (22”) in external diameter, minimum 240 mm (9.5”) and 300 mm (12”) in thickness. Many different options are available to improve the automation of the machine and the practicality of use by the operator: automatic tools storage, crane or other system to handle the wheel, controls over the tools wearing, dedicated software which permits you to simulate over your PC as many profiles and works as you need…and others more! That’s why we want to show you our MDM 560 CN 5A lathe as our latest news!!! Nowadays Maternini provides lathe machines able to cover a huge range of diameters up to 1200 mm (48”) without fixed restrictions on height and central hole size.

Maternini R&D offices are proud to present to abrasive players all over the world two new devices which can support and integrate your product development potentiality.

We talk about standalone testing units perfect to arrange trials concerning filling and levelling of mixture: MDM WEI-FILL & MDM GRA-FIL.

Machines projected for filling of mixture by weight and rotating levelling (the first one, MDM WEI-FILL) and by volume with scraping blade (the other called MDM GRA-FILL).

Both of them ideal to proof the quality of spreadingof mixture into the mould by using two different ways.

Possibility to pick-up the moulds and place them under a press to obtain finished wheels and develop further tests with finished product.

Quality and performance of your discs are your winning feature.

MDM wants to make you a winner!  

Christmas is coming!
