Symach is designing a cutting-edge 3000-square-metre technical department in a facility at Calderara di Reno in Bologna, Italy. It will be equipped with a complete TRUMPF machining line including a TruPunch 3000 Sheetmaster machine for cutting sheet metal and loading, unloading and selecting parts, as well as a TruBend Series 5000 bending machine.
“TRUMPF is the world leader in sheet metal processing automation,” said Osvaldo Bergaglio, owner and president of Symach. “We are making a significant investment of approximately 1.5 million euros in this equipment, which will provide Symach with the best tooling for optimising production and having direct control over the quality of our products.” In addition, Bergaglio said it will increase production capacity by almost five times, allowing Symach to reduce delivery times and costs, as well as improve on quality assurance of the company’s product.
Machine installation is scheduled for January 2018 and the department is expected to be fully operational in March 2018. Currently, departmental staff are completing training at the TRUMPF headquarters in Milan, Italy, to learn how to best utilise the machines.
Symach said it has specialised in body shop design, construction and installation of its state-of-the-art technology and equipment worldwide since 2010. “We take pride in supporting our customers in the customisation of their bodywork and in staff training,” said Bergaglio. “We plan to continue investing in technology and product research and focus on continuous innovation as a key to success.”
There are now more than 70 customers around the world using the Symach FixLine model, working closely with Symach consultants to ensure their business goals are met. Symach said the new department marks a further evolution of its history in the direction of customer satisfaction.
“We support our customers in the achievement of increased production, efficiency, delivery of service and their profitability goals,” said Bergaglio. “The attestations of gratitude and friendship that come from them continue to give us the motivation and dedication to continue doing our work well.”
Bergaglio added that the spirit and mission that drive Symach demonstrate how the company will provide tangible innovation to the collision repair industry in the years to come.
