Automatic installation

The assembly department is divided into
12 different assembling centers.
The 6 automated centres are dedicated to
the production of large lots.
Here each product is assembled and tested
one by one with a pressurized air system
that allows to detect even the smallest
imperfections and micro losses that could
evolve into defects in the product
during normal use.
Each assembling centre has its own warehouse
that makes it totally self-sufficient
and is daily supplied on the basis of the
orders and according to a logic aimed to
optimize the material handling.

Study and engineering

The Research and Development Centre
of the company is the place where the ideas
from the designers or from the sale demands
and the market come alive.
A team of experienced designers develops
day-to-day solutions with state-of-the-art equipment.
Each product processed before being put
into production is realized in
3D mechanical prototyping,
tested on water on special simulation
benches to understand the criticality
of its operation and then reworked.
Only once passed severe #quality tests,
the product is engineered, put into
production and distributed through
FIMA Carlo Frattini dealers.


Brass rod with numerical-control lathe

The CNC department is equipped with 8 CNC multi axis lathes
able to machine different sections of brass bars in an extremely
precise way and with high efficiency. All brass shavings are
collected also in this department with the innovative vacuum
system and are divided automatically on the basis of the
typology of brass. In this department we produce all brass
components that are part of FIMA Carlo Frattini products in
order to guarantee a complete control of the production and a
total reduction of the wastes by reusing the 100 % of the
production scraps.

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.

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.

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.
