All processes with the exception of thermal treatments are carried out internally by the three companies in the Mechnology Group. In particular: Benincasa Meccanica specializes in turning, OCI in gear cutting and IMAS in grinding.

This gives the group an unrivalled understanding of the properties and characteristics of the materials used and an equally detailed knowledge of the machines and tools involved.

Together, the three companies boast a machine park of almost 100 units, arranged in robotic islands and including numeric control machines made by leading brands such as: Miyano, Muratec, Daewoo, Hyunday-KIA, Mhonier-Zaimer, Gleason-Pfauter, Liebherr, Sicmat, Samputensili, Hofler, Reishauer and Lizzini.

The very latest measuring instruments are also used to ensure the accuracy of machining and the quality of finished parts.

On request, the group can also issue certificates of conformity.

Turning is a common metalworking process throughout industry, and used mainly to remove unwanted material. The process is carried out on a lathe, one of the most common industrial machines and also one that is subject to constant improvement.

Milling is the process of removing unwanted material to obtained different surfaces. Milling requires the use of top quality machines to guarantee high feed speeds, precision and a quality finish without unevenness. Milling is often accompanied by drilling, the process of making holes in the material.

Worm cutting is the precision machining process that cuts worm shafts. It requires the use of dedicated machine tools.

Broaching is the removal of material from internal surfaces in order to form slots, keyways and teeth using a multi-toothed tool called a broach.

The process of removing material from the outside of a cylindrical surface on the other hand is called slotting. Slotting produces vertical, straight or shaped slots and keyways.

Gear cutting is a specialist machining process performed on gear cutting machines. It is used to produce externally toothed gears and splines. Skiving is a modern technique for finishing gear teeth. It permits the removal of materials of different hardness, the repair of gear surfaces and the forming of small size gears.

Shaving is a finishing process that gives gear teeth the final profile and smoothness required for efficient functioning. Shaving precedes the final thermal treatment and requires the use of extremely precise machines to ensure that the finished tooth profile corresponds exactly to design. Chamfering is applied to the flanks of the teeth to ensure silent meshing.

Grinding is an operation performed on the internal and external surfaces of parts. The process uses grinding wheels to remove material. Grinding is performed to eliminate deformation caused by thermal treatments, to machine surfaces to tolerance and to finish the surfaces of end products.
