ASMAG signs contract for two innovative production lines in Italy

The Austrian ASMAG GmbH, known worldwide as a specialist in quality machinery for production of metals, has recently signed a contract with the Italian BERNA ERNESTO SpA of Lumezzane (Brescia) for the turnkey supply of two complete fully-automated production lines. The plants will produce hollow bars and hollow profiles in various brass alloys.

The agreement was signed in Gmunden (Austria) by Andrea Berna, CEO of BERNA ERNESTO and Johann Vielhaber, CEO of ASMAG. This has been the successful culmination of several technical meetings in which all requirements of BERNA have been carefully evaluated to identify and outline the best technological and layout solutions.

The renowned philosophy of BERNA, oriented to unconditionally guaranteed product quality and customer satisfaction, has been the guiding principle that has lead the engineers in Scharnstein to their project choices. The technological encounter, knowledge and share of experience have been further enhanced by mutual visits of delegations to the respective premises, Lumezzane and Scharnstein.

The scope of supply includes draw bench, straightening lines for rounds and profiles, cut-to-length station, chamfering, straightness control unit and testing table, automatic bundling and packing, and installation & commissioning services.

Considering the qualitative targets firmly established by the management of BERNA, it goes without saying that strong attention to material handling and an extensive adoption of in-line instrumentation have also been foreseen by the Austrian engineers. This will ensure the physical and aesthetic properties of the finished brass bars.

ASMAG is a leading manufacturer of integrated lines for the production of cold drawn metals (ferrous and non-ferrous). Its markets are mainly Europe, USA and Russia.

Founded in 1984 by the engineer Johann Vielhaber, it has grown since then at the factory in Scharnstein and with the acquisitions of SEUTHE, Germany in 2010 and OCN, Italy in 2015. The ASMAG group now totals more than 200 employees.

To be noticed that following the purchase of the assets of OCN, a new ASMAG Branch Office has also been established in Tavagnacco (UD), Italy, whose first important result has been this project with BERNA. With this contract, ASMAG confirms its leadership in high-technology cold drawing machinery.
