AMETS is specialized in general machining of all types of parts for different industries such as steel, oil & gas, glass and aluminum packaging industry or automotive, which in many cases demand complex geometries. Their relationship with IBARMIA goes back a long way, to be exact, since 1998 when they acquired their first IBARMIA machining center a ZV 45 EXTREME that has run in production up until very recently.
Given the nature of its business, AMETS machines a wide range of parts in small series. Therefore, the increasing demand in terms of complexity and variety of parts requested, led to the need to invest in a machining center capable of responding to such a wide demand with solvency and precision.
The story behind AMETS is a clear example of loyalty based on a previous positive experience with IBARMIA's machining centers. Thus, in the moment of acquiring this new machining center with better and more extensive features, the excellent performance offered by its veteran ZV 45 machine tipped the scales in favor of IBARMIA.
Once again, AMETS found the right supplier in IBARMIA. Since the days of the ZV 45 EXTREME, IBARMIA's versatile range of travelling column machining centers has undergone a growing and successful technological development. The most advanced solution of this family is the versatile ZVH MULTIPROCESS multitasking machining center for milling in up to 5 continuous axes with vertical and/or horizontal turning capabilities. The program allows to configure models structurally adaptable to all electrospindle sizes, ranging from 1600 mm to 12,000 mm of longitudinal travel, while offering a very extensive catalog of optionals, which allows levels of customization difficult to achieve by other manufacturers.
On this basis, AMETS opted for a powerful ZVH 58/L4000 MULTIPROCESS, a machining center for operations in up to 5 continuous axes with vertical turning capability and 4 m of longitudinal travel, equipped with an HSK 100 size and 84 kW electrospindle. The model also incorporates a bolt-on rotary table as a 6th axis, capable of both vertical and horizontal use.
In short, AMETS has chosen a configuration which allows them to deal with all types of orders with maximum flexibility, especially in such a volatile and changing situation as the markets are currently experiencing.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that the satisfaction with the results of this model and its relationship with IBARMIA has led to the recent incorporation of another IBARMIA machining center by AMETS. In this case they have chosen a ZVH 45/L1600 EXTREME that will certainly improve the speed and performance of this expert manufacturer specialized in the manufacture and assembly of precision tooling for various sectors such as steel, oil & gas, glass and aluminum packaging industry or automotive.
