A few months ago, VPM AUTOMATION was in charge of the whole retrofit of milling machine DECKEL FP3CC of the HAM Company, located in Peillonnex (74) and managed by Mr. Christophe CHAMBET.
The HAM France subsidiary of the German HAM group is specialized of the French market products manufactured in Germany such as tools in carbide, diamond polycristalin CBN and cermet and ceramic. This company, also, creates in its work area in Peillonnex all types of solid carbide and PCD special tools.
This machine DECKEL FP3CC is used for the demonstration and the test of different types of tools to HAM’s customers. This know-how offers to the HAM France company the realization of different industrial projects in various sectors: automobile, aeronautic…
Using this technology, the HAM France company bids on this sector as the leader in this sector and brings a rare and sought-after service in terms of test.
The retrofit of this machine consists in a “turnkey” service of the DECKEL FP3CC machine from the design, the supply, the installation, the wiring, the start-up to the adjusting of electrical equipment for the axes’ control.
From the pilot study to the installation in the customers’ site, VPM AUTOMATION had busy working days during the first semester of 2014.
The setup of the new SIEMENS 828D CNC was realized in our premises by Mr. Arnaud MALIGE, technical director, with the start-up of a spindle FISCHER.
This new process offers a great innovation and optimization in terms of functional capacity.
The electrical part has also been concerned by the retrofit of the machine… From the retrofit of the electrical cabinet to the supply of all the electrical equipment of the control unit and the electrical wiring, VPM AUTOMATION changed all the electrical parts of the DECKEL FP3CC in order to have a refurbished machine in the whole.
The enclosure was also restored… The external enclosure has undergone some partial changes (change of the windows, dubbing interior cabin) and the machine was painted.
Mr. Vincent PRADALIER, Chairman of VPM AUTOMATION, decided to take personally in charge the adjusting of the machine on the customers’ site. He has also trained the HAM France employees to the new DECKEL FP3CC and its new technology.
The reception of the DECKEL FP3CC machine was realized with the Manager of HAM France, Mr. Christophe CHAMBET, who was very satisfied of the competence and the knowledge of our company and expects a new project.
