Study and engineering
Automated galvanic system
The galvanic department is equipped with an automated galvanic system composed by 44 different baths and able to produce all the unique chrome, black chrome, nickel and gold finishes of FIMA Carlo Frattini. The system, realized with the most innovative technologies, is totally #green thanks both to the use of trivalent chromium, completely safe for the health and the environment, and to the scrupulous ecological plans and closed cycle treatments able to clean all discharged water with some cleaning resin systems.
Metal polishing systems
In the polishing department, automatic machineries grind, buss and polish every single piece in order to get the best brilliant and shiny surface.
An efficient integrated aspiration system provides a clean environment without durst and the collection of all brass powders ensures a total recycle of materials with no wastes.
All products with a particular #design are entrusted and one by one manually processed by expert operators in order to guarantee an incomparable quality, brilliance and details.
Moulded and casted items
In the machinery department all casted and forged bodies are machined, drilled and threaded. All the passages of the production are automated with optical recognition robots and continuously controlled by the integrated informatics systems. Any residue from the processing is collected with a phased vacuum system that immediately collects all the shavings of brass with a reduced consumption of energy. After several washing treatments, the shavings are collected in dedicated silos and are ready for being transformed again in new brass bricks or bars in full respect of the environment according to the #green philosophy of the company.
