A few days before the end of the year, from Ferrotall we review what has been a year marked by the social and health crisis that has caused the COVID 19.
What seemed to be a great 2020 within the machining sector with important news and events (such as the BIEMH) has been cut short by the pandemic that has shaken the whole world.
In Grupo Ferrotall, as in many companies, we have had to adapt to the situation and reorganize our route guide. The restrictions, prevention, security and control measures that have been established throughout 2020, in the different stages and waves of the pandemic have marked the communication of the company with the clients.
From the very beginning, we have been strongly committed to maintaining contact with our customers and continuing to offer quality solutions for the machining sector. At the communication level, we have relied on all the formats offered by online communication to achieve this. The social networks have helped us to be closer to our customers, telling our day to day and providing new content and quality for our sector.
In the first phase of the quarantine and under the slogan “the industry is wealth, let’s keep creating future”” our CEO Manuel Fernandez launched a message of optimism, support and commitment to all companies in the metalworking sector.
Below we summarize the most important events of the year in Grupo Ferrotall.
In additive manufacturing we signed an agreement to create 3DZ LEVANTE
In April we announced a representation agreement with 3DZ the official distributor of the most prestigious brands of 3D. A commitment to quality in software, printing and 3D scanning. The presentation of the agreement and creation of 3DZ LEVANTE was done through a WEBINAR (the first for us) and was very well received.
In November and in relation to the additive manufacturing and machining, we made the 3D machining and printing conferences. Two days full of presentations in webinar format where we show you the possibilities, solutions and myths of this new concept of machining, which has come to stay.
In numerical control and after the agreement to represent the entire national territory of the prestigious German brand of 5-axis machining centers GROB, we have focused on showing you the features, benefits and possibilities offered by these machines in the various sectors of machining.
In addition, we wanted to humanize and give a face to customers who have acquired this type of machining centers such as FAYMM and SAINDU
In September we held our first DIGITAL WORKING DAY, where we recorded, together with our colleagues from SMART.PM Guhring and Delfin Componentes, the machining of a workpiece in real time with the GROB G550 5-axis horizontal machining center.
The Vurcon brand is growing gradually and this 2020 has added new models to its range as the CNC lathes
Ferromaster, the Ferrotall Group’s own technical service, has taken a leap in quality by carrying out the training that accredits it as the only official service in Spain for the GROB brand.
In terms of second-hand machinery, we have been renewing our stock by participating in international auctions (at the beginning of the year) and online auctions to always acquire and offer competitive machines for the market. This year we would like to highlight the special work of our Ferromaster technicians who have been working in Finland.
In conventional machinery, Heller has taken advantage of the situation to make some changes in its product range, such as the incorporation of its smallest lathe, the CE360X100, the sphere lathe or the FU1500 milling machine. Also this summer it started the project of re-evaluation of risks and safety concepts in its machines by the hand of PILZ.
Prosafe+ the novelty
As a consequence of the sanitary situation and with the purpose of offering a quality product (fulfilling the AEMPS regulations) and of national manufacture, the company with headquarters in Elche is created. PROSAFE+ is the Ferrotall Group’s sanitary profile company that manufactures surgical masks with 99.9% bacterial filtration.
As a reflection, the pandemic has brought us an unprecedented situation that affects all levels of society. We all have to learn from good situations but we must learn more from adverse situations. From Ferrotall we want to keep our commitment with the sector and above all with our clients, we bet for a 2021 with the same desire or more, with which we started in 2020.
