The Production department of Officina Contini manufactures moulds up to a maximum weight of 8000kg and dimensions up to 1000X1000X800. It is equipped with 10 CNC machines, all connected on a network accessible from all CAD stations, including roughing and finishing machines, machining centers for electrodes and for all standard spare parts (e.g. cylindrical plugs). The facilities are also fitted with the latest releases of two Delcam CAM stations (3 and 5 axes) and a Microsystem Cimatron CAM station. Two trained technicians control the entire programming cycle of the rough and finishing machines, and since 2011 we have also been equipped with three work stations programmed to work without human supervision.
