Story

FOUNDATION

Mr Walter Faccin founded the company Faccin Srl. Production starts of 3-roll mechanical pyramid plate bending rolls without initial pinch (SI series) and with initial pinch (ASI series)..

DEVELOPMENT

Faccin expands its offer: bending rolls become with pre-bending (CI series), 4 rolls (4CI series), with hydraulically controlled movements (HCI series). 2-roll bending rolls are added with rubber roll (HCU series), 3-roll variable geometry (HAV series), pipe bending machines (CPF series), dished head production lines (BF – PPM series).

RESEARCH

Keeping abreast with new market demands, Faccin seeks new solutions in the field of automation of production processes. The angle rolls evolve into the RCM and RCMI series (with universal rolls)..

INNOVATION

To increase the precision and reliability of plate bending rolls and improve their competitiveness on the market, innovative technologies are applied: EPS, electronically synchronised rolls parallelism system – MCS, multi-bearing system – CNC, numerical control with automatic calculation of the working cycle and control of various interlocks such as controlled axes.

CONSOLIDATION

The company continues on the path of growth and innovation: Taurus angle rolls are produced for bending large beams; the CNC becomes an instrument integrated in the computer network; Teleservice is introduced for web-based after sales customer service..

The Faccin facility

Specialist in the design, manufacturing and sale of plate bending rolls, profile bending machines, dished head machinery and special machines including ship frame bending rolls and presses, plate straightening machines, Faccin concentrates its production in Visano, in the Brescia province. The Faccin facility covers over an area of 60,000 m2, of which 1,250 m2 occupied by offices and 15,000 m2 by the production facilities. Using the latest technology, the company follows the construction of machinery at every stage, from receipt of the order to design by the in-house engineering department, from construction of electro-welded structures to machining of structures and forged rolls up to assembly and shipping.

Design

The company’s engineering department team is responsible for design and development of Faccin products. Using 3D CAD and 2D CAD systems and finite element methods (FEM) for structural design, the engineering department performs motion simulations, machinery structural and mechanical limit testing, creation and optimazation of BOMs, complete management of data flow to production. It also uses specific programs for the development and implementation of hydraulic and electrical systems to assure maximum effectiveness and durability of the solutions it offers.

Forging

For the supply of high quality raw materials, Faccin relies on the cooperation of O.F.A.R. Spa, a company nearby specialising in metal forging. O.F.A.R. also supplies to Faccin heavy machined parts such as rolls and moulds for the manufacture of machine tools, masts for wind towers and crankshafts for ship building. Among suppliers of forged parts, Faccin also relies on the cooperation of primary suppliers such as Saarschmiede (Germany) or SDF Società delle fucine of Terni (Italy).

 

Cutting

The plates and profiles from selected and certified suppliers are processed within the Faccin facility to be then used in the construction of machinery. The personnel use the latest technologies to cut plates with thickness over 200 mm and profiles higher than 600 mm, and then proceed to assembling structures and machine frames.

Faccin’s cutting department has:

  • The latest CNC Oxyfuel and Plasma cutting equipment
  • Various band saws
  • 2 overhead travelling cranes
  • Lathes and milling machines for pre-machining

The department is equipped with:

  • Structural parts assembly stations
  • Welding stations
  • Extraction systems
  • Welding positioners
  • 2 overhead travelling cranes
  • 4 jib cranes

 

Milling and boring

The structures of each machine are machined using modern milling machines and CNC machining centres. The skills in construction of any part assures optimised delivery and expedites availability of parts not in stock. High precision and high productivity of this department assure the solidity, reliability and long-term precision of Faccin products.

The department is equipped with:

  • 3 boring machines and 3 CNC machining centres of various sizes equipped with boards and tool magazine
  • 3 overhead travelling cranes

Turning

The rolls are essential components of a plate bending roll and are produced by Faccin with the best raw materials certified by chemical analyses and non-destructive testing. The rolls are machined on modern CNC lathes in order to achieve the suitable camber for the Customer’s specific application needs.

The department is equipped with:

  • 3 CNC parallel lathes
  • 3 conventional parallel lathes
  • 1 vertical lathe
  • 2 overhead travelling cranes

In this area there are several assembly positions that enable the Faccin team to construct any model, type and size of machine. The department is divided into differentiated areas dedicated to the assembly of:

  • Small-sized machines
  • Medium-sized machines
  • Large-sized machines
  • Special machines and equipment
  • Plant engineering (hydraulic and electrical)
  • Painting
  • Finish, preliminary test and final test
  • The department is equipped with:
  • 12 overhead travelling cranes
  • Tools and instrumentation certified according to current
  • regulations

Faccin’s high construction potential in figures:

  • Heaviest complete machine ever assembled: weight 675 Tonnes
  • Heaviest single piece: weight 105 tonnes
  • Longest complete machine ever assembled: length 23 metres
  • Highest ever complete machine assembled: total height 10.5 metres

Warehouse and logistics

Faccin manages a considerable inventory of hydraulic and mechanical components in order to guarantee the availability of spare parts at all times.

Using an internal ERP-based computer network, the responsible department monitors both the tower storage and all the storage bays of materials located in the production department. This assures maximum inventory efficiency.
