Situated in the small town of Cisano Bergamasco in Italy’s Bergamo province, ALDEGHI S.r.l (a division of M.S.Ambrogio Group) is surrounded by history, from the Colleoni Chapel—a Renaissance jewel in Bergamo’s crown—to the majestic Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the upper city. Founded by Aldeghi’s father, Pietro Aldeghi, in 1983 in roughly 200-square-meter workshop, today’s ALDEGHI S.r.l. encompasses 2,000 square meters, including 1,600 square meters of covered and thermostabilized with air conditioning and is bound full speed for the future.
"For us, the future really is in automation of our processes to ensure quality and productivity," said Aldeghi.
Automotive components are getting smaller and smaller. The convergence of automotive and information and communications (ICT) technology contribute to miniaturization and drive the evolution of tighter tolerances for stamping and molds, he explained. This trend extends to clearances for sliding components and ejectors and angles for sliders, for example.
To continue outperforming his customers’ quality and precision expectations, Aldeghi listens to the market, and he turns to GF Machining Solutions for quality-driving technologies.
“We listen to our customers in order to have a deep understanding for their needs and requirements,” he said. “We never hesitate to beyond our customers’ quality expectations in order to really ensure customer satisfaction and confidence in the results.”
Supporting the company’s particular strengths—quality of surfaces and precision, as well as on-time delivery—Aldeghi counts on GF Machining Solutions EDM products and Milling, application experts and Customer Services. ALDEGHI’s GF Machining Solutions machine fleet includes eight wire-cutting EDM machines: one AgieCharmilles CUT 200 mS, two CUT 300 mS, two ROBOFIL 4030 SI, and one each of the ROBOFIL 2030 SI, ROBOFIL 6030 SI TW and ROBOFIL 2050 TW. Six of those eight EDM machines are equipped with System 3R WorkPal pallet changing robots to increase machine productivity and capacity, and ALDEGHI relies on a Mikron VCP 800 W Duro, as well.
