Shorter production times, high precision and minimum waste of material. These, in brief, are the advantages our waterjet and cutter systems. The first use a very high-pressure jet of water. The cutters use a blade or milling cutter. They make any gasket in soft or plastic material. They are all latest-generation CNC systems. Advanced nesting makes maximum use of material. Their high power enables them to cut very thick or particularly tough materials.
All the Athena Industries processes.
For all your production needs.
Process no. 1
Up to 500 tonnes of power, Athena presses cut pieces of various kinds of material up to 6 mm thick. They use various dies, depending on the type of product required. Electronic control systems (ECUs) and painstaking checks ensure perfect results.
Process no. 2
Sophisticated technologies for barrelling, deburring, polishing. Tests and inspections with surface roughness testers and vision systems. Optimum flow and lack of noise, no cracks and breaks – every single piece is processed to ensure that mechanical parts fit together perfectly.
Process no. 3
CO2 and fibre laser cutters. These machines cut metals up to 3 mm thick completely automatically. Plus, Athena’s exclusive technology – directly coil-fed – means more savings on time and raw materials.
Process no. 4
Various technologies to ensure absolute precision, reduce costs and guarantee that each piece is top-quality, thanks to strict in-process and post-process controls.
Process no. 5
Tempering, cementation and carbonitriding of various shapes and kinds of metal parts. Each phase of the processing cycle is managed by special software and control systems, to ensure that the product perfectly matches the characteristics required in the specification.
Process no. 6
Advanced technological know-how on automatic die cutters for blanking gaskets. 3D and laser scanner control systems to check each product made. Great production flexibility from small to large runs, ensuring absolute quality and perfect design match.
Process no. 7
Cutting systems that use a very high-pressure waterjet. Or a blade or mill cutter. These produce any kind of gasket in soft or plastic material, at very high speed and with great precision.
Process no. 8
Up-to-date, differentiated technology for a service of top-level quality – stringent system of procedures and tests, personnel training, customised services. This is why many earthmoving machine, automotive, white goods and agricultural companies choose us.
Process no. 9
Maximum functionality and resistance for endothermic engines. The nickel silicon plating (EN) equipment coats the cylinders, depositing a hard coating and achieving extremely high hardness.
Process no. 10
Latest generation technologies, research and development of new mixtures, compliance with all industry and food regulations enable us to create designs that are customised and for all types of application.
Process no. 11
Advanced technology and 40 years of experience in mechanical processing of bars – our strengths for guaranteeing a top-quality consulting service and production capacity for every special requirement.
Process no. 12
Zero-defect automated assembly systems with final inspection guarantee clients maximum production quality.
Process no. 13
Systems where glass is used together with metal parts made on our premises. We offer clients three kinds of surface treatment: chemical nickel plating (EN), standard chrome and zinc plating up to 12 hours salt spray test.
Process no. 14
Complete calibration of all test parameters and associated power band test. Athena’s 5 test stands enable us to carry out all tests required to configure the vehicle and to analyse exhaust emissions.
Process no. 15
Athena makes electronic control units (ECUs) and offers clients a complete design and support service in addition, of course, to fully supplying all components for electronic injection systems.
Process no. 16
Unique logistics experience, with a variety of competencies dealing with the industrial, aftermarket and distribution sectors, based on the latest just-in-time, consignment stock and kanban systems.
