The Continuous Improvement Team guides MAGROUP’s logistics-production process and the implementation of Industry 4.0 enabling technologies from a "Smart Factory" perspective.
A wide range of 4/5 axes CNC horizontal and vertical work centers with multi-pallet features, together with several advanced turning-milling 5 axes machines, CNC turnings, Autoclaves and Clean rooms allow MAGROUP Production Organizations to manufacture a wide range of metallic and glass/carbon composite parts, including Aluminum, UHTS steel and titanium. Deep drilling, bottle boring, traditional turnings and millings machines are used for metallic parts and forgings preparation.
Grinding, honing, deburring and EDM machines allow to reach high level of surface finishing and precision. Cutting prepregs, laminating and laser contouring NC machines are widely used during composite parts lifecycle. Special processes for state-of-the-art surface treatments and coatings in compliance with the European REACH regulation, aimed at ensuring a higher level of protection of human health and the environment, are also part of MAGROUP capabilities.
Several types of measuring tools and machines being used in a production environment, including advanced DEA NC and NDI machines and traditional inline measuring tools. Laser tracking is also used to measure critical components and final assemblies before delivery in accordance to 3D detailed models. These tools and machines are used to support and verify the daily operations of the production process, and the techniques used are certified.
A strong attitude for continuous research of new and simple techniques to improve efficiency, reduce lead times and costs according to Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma and Kaizen basic principles is well established in MAGROUP Productions Organizations. Kaizen tries to improve the business as a whole by creating a standard way of working, increasing efficiency and eliminating business waste. Six Sigma is more focused on quality output (the final product) through finding and eliminating the causes of defects.
