In short, the success story proves how the ability to design and provide custom clamping systems for self-centering chucks played a crucial role in order to meet the customer’s needs effectively.
In particular, the solution developed by CDMeccanica ensures very high customer satisfaction, allowing clients to work irregular mechanical pieces in short time and with no deformation or damage.
This is made possible by a clamping system (special jaw) for self-centering chucks which CDMeccanica designed specifically for the customer.
We are with Matteo Gozzoli (Sales Manager) and Cristian Gozzoli (Technical Manager) of CDMeccanica, whom we thank and to whom we shall ask a few questions in order to understand the key elements that led the customer to choose the solution developed by CDMeccanica in more detail.

What were the challenges to face?

The client, an important company operating in the field of truck and bus equipment, after performing a few tests on the market, posed a difficult challenge to us: fixing an irregular mechanical piece, to be submitted to special processing, on the self-centering chuck.
Furthermore the client: had a limited budget, the need to work on a large number of mechanical work pieces minimizing waste and mistakes and limited time to find an appropriate solution.

What were the main problems to solve?

The main criticalities CDMeccanica had to face can be summarized as follows:

  1. Fixing the irregular mechanical piece on the self-centering chuck without deforming it;
  2. Maintaining optimum clamping for large production as well;
  3. Ensuring the passage of special tools needed to carry out the processes required;
  4. The jaws produced had to be necessarily of a reduced weight in order to allow the self-centering chuck to preserve the performances requested by the customer;
  5. Ensuring prompt technical assistance in the design, construction and testing phases;
  6. Ensuring constant after-sale support.

What were, then, the solutions you suggested and what were the factors that allowed CDMECCANICA to meet the client’s requests?

CDMeccanica was able to satisfy the customer completely thanks to its organization and, in particular, to its co-design system and technical staff.
Indeed, CDMeccanica, spent several months to study and design a completely new and totally customized clamping solution in order to solve the various problems posed by the customer.
Such solution was the result of years of experience both in the field of clamping systems (self-aligning chuck jaws), and the full computer integration with the client, which made the constant exchange of ideas, projects and assessments very efficiently and constructively possible.
In addition, the client chose CDMeccanica for its prompt responses.
Thanks to its organizational skills CDMeccanica is also able to offer its services at a competitive price, another reason why the client choose the company.
“In short, customers obtain what they want at competitive prices,” emphasizes Cristian Gozzoli.
