Deforming Machine

Topic of the day concerns a new rotary press developed and already launched on the market by Davide Maternini SpA. The machine we are dealing with is not dedicated to the market of rigid abrasives but gravities in the world of coated abrasives. We can proudly describe here a rotary press able to shape fiber-discs and give them the wished and required deformation grade of the disc itself.

Properly designed for the market of coated abrasives, the name of this press is “Deforming machine”. It is available in two versions: a higher productivity model which installs ten moulds (MDM 125 3C R4 20T) and a lower productivity model composed by just four moulds (MDM 50×4 3C R4 8T). Among the main features of the machine, it appears the capability to warm the moulds in order to reach the desired temperature and so to optimize the flexion of the fiber-disc.

Here follows a quick description of the working cycle: a mechanical arm collects the discs from a cart positioned by the operator and releases them over the shaped moulds on the machine’s table which turns and bring the discs under the pressing position. As last step another arm picks-up the deformed discs and places them over the unloading belt. Here the worker will collect the discs and starts the next operation. Quick, reliable, plentiful productivity and satisfactory quality of the finished product, the Deforming machine is surely the best solution for all the Companies working in the market of fiber-discs.

For any further question or for knowing more about that,please don’t hesitate to contact the Sales Office of Davide Maternini SpA.

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.

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)!

THE NEW FIVE-AXIS LATHE

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.

Contact us if you are interested in going deeper!

We would be glad to assist you!

Special Occasion!

Second-hand Testing Machine prompt delivery

Dear friend, our Team is pleased to inform you about a great opportunity available these days. It’s about a very special Burst Testing Machine able to test discs in a range between 75 to 100 mm (3’’ and 4”) with a maximum reachable speed equal to 50.000 rpm. This machine is a second-hand unit but it’s only three years old. Of course, all basic components of the Tester Unit will be totally revamped and the machine will be supplied with same warranty period as given on brand new machines.

Main technical features are listed here below:

  • Electro-spindle driven
  • Installed power of 4 kw, ceramic bearing mounted
  • Various safety sensors guarantee the security for a reliable test
  • At wheel breakage and/or at the end of the test, after deceleration has started, the machine stops automatically
  • A vast number of recipes can be set

Don’t miss this opportunity!

MDM WEI-FILL & MDM GRA-FILL

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!

Our best wishes, from the team DAVIDE MATERNINI SPA
May you all live with your family, a bright Christmas
And a happy and prosperous New Year

See you in 2022!

Something new is coming up!

A new entry in the family of auxiliary machines: the way to count wheels.

The functionality of the machine is to quickly and accurately count a predefined number of wheels set by the operator or by the person in charge of the packaging inside a production department.

Basically, an arm driven by an electric motor collects four wheels (or three depending on the chosen CTP model) and places them neatly on an unloading belt.

Previously, the wheels are loaded manually on a rotating store which allows the machine to continue working during this operation.

Of course, depending on the needs, it is possible to select the height or rather the number of wheels that must be stacked one above the other on the belt.

Extremely interesting is how the machine can be integrated with the following steps in the production cycle: the stacks can be collected manually or by means of an automatic arm and moved according to the logistic process.

Another interesting aspect lies in the fact that the machine is equipped with special lifting flanges that allow it to be easily moved inside the shed.

Ultimately we can proudly say that the final goal of this machine is to facilitate packaging operations by reducing the margin of error to zero in the counting phase.
