Working steps

Usually a Customer sends its goods for manufacturing purposes. The staff, in this case, verifies the quantity of itens and the absence of evident faults on them, and prepares the processing sheets that will be sent along to the following working stage.
It’s even possible that the Customer requests, for his own catalog products, a new moulding: this can of course be performed, without problems, in any production volume and always very quickly by means of a series of state-of-the-art hydraulic presses, which differ in power and speed of production.

At the initial stages of roughing-out and pre-brightening six robots are used: they are special twin-heads CNC machines designed for the specific needs of polishing of the bilaminate.

The key stage of processing is definitely polishing, which we perform completely by hand, in the traditional way, so that any imperfection can easily be corrected once detected.

C.L.M. can perform any type of finishing the customer requires: polishing, sandblasting, glossing, gilding, enamelling, rhinestone application and more.

The degreasing step is fully automated, and takes place in a room with controlled (55%) humidity and constant (21°C) temperature, so that the machinery can return completely dry and perfectly dehumidified plates.

Every processed item, unless a specific different request on behalf of the Customer, is protected with suitable transparent varnishes: such painting not only maintains the brilliance unaltered as time goes by, but also prevents the oxidation of silver and the subsequent assumption of the typical yellowish color. The degreased objects are deposited in a dehumidified environment with a constant (21°C) temperature, and from here they are introduced into the pressurized cabin where a robot arm, equipped with HVLP spray guns, runs the painting. The phase is concluded with a three-hours stay in a ventilated oven, at a temperature of 60°C, for drying.

Processing is completed by punching the sheets. The job is carried out by oil-pressure machinery and high-precision punches, which separate one-by-one the items, now ready for quality control, packaging and return shipping.

Finally, the processed objects undergo a final check, to verify their compliance with imposed quality standards, and then are sent to packaging. The packaging step itself can include any jobs (silk-screen printing, application of small stickers or whatever) on the back of the object or even require the use of marked/customized boxes. Normally, the processing cycle closes with return shipping, i.e. the delivery of finished items to the Customer.
