Tecno System: Customized turnkey solutions for extrusion lines and toolings

The main goal for Tecno System has always been the maximization of customer satisfaction and for this reason it has been focusing for over 60 years on customization of the products and customer service as foudamental keys to its success. As Tecno System’s clients already know very well, the company is always ready to support its partners for any type of issue connected to extrusion technologies

Tecno System is amongst the leading companies in the development of lines for thermoplastic profiles and pipes, producing customized turnkey systems, such as extrusion lines complete with moulds and integrated on-line or off-line solutions, very appreciated in the domestic and international markets.

All products are completely designed, manufactured, and tested in the historic plant in Consandolo (Ferrara, Italy) applying very stringent process quality standards and ensuring therefore the full compliance with the European standards about the matter.

The company offers its customers a high level of experience, specific and consolidated know-how, and constant R&D efforts combined with the professionalism of a high-skilled team, in order to give clients the smartest solutions possible. The focus is to grant the customer satisfaction, which is the linchpin of Tecno System’s mission.

With Tecno System turnkey solutions all the activities like designing, manufacturing, testing, installing, and servicing, training, and documenting the products are managed directly, with no need to rely on third parties and simplifying therefore the overall investment. This approach means multiple advantages for the customers in terms of management efforts with the possibility to interact with just one referee. 

The whole project develops in many specific steps. First of all there is the commercial phase: on this regard, the intention of the company is to support its clients in the decision making process, by developing different solutions and guiding them to the strategic choice. Sales department is always available for any doubt and/or inquiry and is ready to suggest the best solution for the specific purpose requested by the customer. The result is a “custom made” solution which represents obviously a high value-added product particularly appreciated in the international market, specifically designed, and tailored on the specific customer’s needs.

The project moves then to the design step, where the engineering departments examine and validate any detail of the proposed solutions, paying attention to important factors, such as the energy efficiency and the safety of the machineries, innovation, high performance and quality standards, and other crucial aspects to have the best final product possible.

Once Tecno System engineers have approved and defined the overall layout, it is the turn of manufacturing processes, relying on high skilled employees and an excellent network of suppliers in order to ensure top-quality products characterized by robustness and reliability. 

Ultimately, there is the testing phase where the testing departments also deal with the final acceptance test in the presence of the end customer. With special care of the prototypes, Tecno System makes available its specialized technicians to the final users for training days, both in its plant and in the client’s end plant to be able to exploit at the maximum levels the new product completely safely.

As already mentioned, one of Tecno System’s biggest selling points is its after-sales service where the technical assistance team provides its support to the customers any time they need after the delivery of the product, and for any kind of reason, from the resolution of incurred issues up to the possibility to rethink and upgrade obsolete machineries.

By opting for Tecno System’s extrusion lines, clients can satisfy different capacity needs (5-350 kg/h) as well as a wide range of purposes in the field of extrusion of profiles as pipes, technical profiles, profiles for the building industry, medical tubes, thermal break profiles with fiberglass, etc., and made of a great variety of thermoplastic materials, such as plasticized PVC, rigid PVC, PP, PC, HDPE, LDPE, PP, PMMA, etc. The lines are also characterized by low energy consumption of the calibrating units and innovative cutting units with radial hot blades.

Particular attention is paid to the main business of PVC profile, with the very solid Tecno System’s experience in designing and constructing of high-quality extrusion dyes and calibrators for the extrusion of PVC window frames, roller shutters, panels, cable management ducts, gutters and rainwater pipes, etc. 

Another strength is the construction of dedicated single or multi layer extrusion lines for medical pipes made with medical grade raw materials used in clean room environments (soft PVC, TPU, PEBAX, ect.). Tecno System’s medical tubing extrusion lines are becoming very popular among the customers in Italy and abroad for the achievable high-speed extrusion standards, which are the results of the most recent achievements in automation and mechanics, combined with a close cooperation with raw material producers in order to improve and refine screw geometry and design. In addition, there is also the possibility to have 4.0 ready extrusion lines for multilayer pipe complete with OD/wall thickness control, inkjet printer, and a final semi-automatic single or double coiler to facilitate and optimize any step of the production process.

It must be said then that the wide range of Tecno System’s products does not end with extrusion lines and tooling systems: besides these main solutions, in facts, the company can also provide in-house technologies for mechanical processing of profile: for example, the great experience in the field of punching unit systems allowed Tecno System to develop integrated and customer tailored solutions for their extrusion lines, which became strategic solutions in the company’s market policy.

The company believes in technological innovation as one of the most important critical success factors to be competitive in the market. On this regard, Tecno System has recently invested many efforts and resources in the digitalization and hyperconnectivity of its extrusion lines, adapting extruders and the other machineries to the Industry 4.0 prerequisites. In these terms, the company is becoming a reference point in Italy and abroad for what concerns the supply of innovative 4.0 ready extrusion lines for spiral hoses for example, thanks to the very good results achieved in the configuration of IT-communication between the two in-line extruders, one for U-PVC and one for the soft grade PVC, with the other units. Obviously, this high-advanced technology includes many different advantages for the customer who can rely, for example, on continuous marking process of the tubes before becoming spirals, a fully automated cutting system and ejection system with any operator during the process, and many other tips through which it is possible to consistently reduce the waste and costs. This means optimizing processes and maximization of the efficiency for the customer.

Finally, talking about process efficiency we cannot forget to mention another Tecno System’s flagship: thanks to a new 2D scanner, the company can now measure and digitize any section of the extruded profiles, allowing therefore to optimize in real-time and with extraordinary levels of accuracy the final product directly in the testing phase, according to the technical specifications requested by customers. This means much higher process efficiency, less waste of time and costs due to testing activities for the clients and last but not least easy and fast communication with customers around the world due to “digitized real profiles”.
