We are back and ready to restart our engines!

During our 73 years of activity we would have never imagined experiencing a historical event of this magnitude.
In the past two months we have experienced different moods, from the pain of the loss of so many fellow citizens to the frustration of the necessary isolation to which we have been subjected, but with the only hope that we would return soon to our daily lives.
Now, we don’t want to deceive ourselves, the battle is not yet won and we still have a long way to go,
but, in full compliance with all regulations to protect ours and our collaboratores’ health,

we are ready to restart the engines with the same power that distinguishes us.

We want to warmly thank all those who sent us messages of affection and closeness. We heartily appreciate it.


See you soon and look forward to seeing you in the most beautiful country in the world!


New PTA-2 test machine

MDM is finally pleased to announce the launch of a new testing unit on the market.
A new concept of machine has been developed to check the quality of abrasive cutting discs.

What distinguishes it from past models is that on MDM PTA-2, the cut-off disc is driven directly by a brushless electrical motor and no longer by a commercial angle grinder.


Main advantages:
– Possibility to set any required testing speeds according to Customer needs.
– No more errors or differences which may depend on the use of a grinder brand rather than another one.

In other words, the new PTA-2 offers the most precise and objective results on the performance of your cut-off disc!

The machine cycle is conceived to reproduce a certain number of cuts always in the same conditions and on the same material.
Once the test is over, the operator will be able to obtain all necessary information about wheel wearing.
Data are downloadable on USB supports or directly on the Customer Intranet System.
Wheels testable range is between diameter 100 to 255 mm.
The machine is located into a safety chamber equipped with many connections for air dust.
This test is driven by Siemens PLC Simatic 1500.
