What do we do

SERVICES

We offer timely responses to customer requests

Unicka’s goal is to provide complete solutions, from design to production. Unicka combines experience and expertise with innovation and technology, offering itself as a preferred partner that can manage all aspects of important projects having unique characteristics in terms of design, technology and finishes.

PROCESS ENGINEERING

DISCOVER MORE

A team of qualified professionals who work with the customer to plan what is needed.

The conception phase represents the fundamental moment for the life of each project.

The key to success at this stage is the technical department that develops the optimal solution in terms of quality and costs, always in line with the customer’s requests.

It is at this point that the equipment is designed, making it possible to achieve what was requested by the customer.

DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Discover more

The design phase for the parts is preceded by the design and construction of equipment and dies used in the production of pre-series (pilot dies), mass production, welding and quality control (masks, gauges, etc.).

Each piece of equipment incorporates the years of experience and know-how of the technical office, for a final result that fully meets the needs that arise during the project’s start-up phase.

A careful study of feasibility guarantees the quality of each item produced starting from the design phase, which in turn becomes the optimal starting point for the mass production of components.

SIMULATIONS & PROTOTYPING

DISCOVER MORE

Careful analyses of feasibility, simulations, production of prototypes, testing and development of the forming process carried out by our research and development department allow us to fully engage the customer throughout the project. In this way it is possible to optimise design and technical solutions in order to achieve the best production processes and lower manufacturing costs.

The customer thus becomes a partner who contributes to the definition of the project.

Production of components and systems

Discover more

Unicka deals with realization of different types of products, using innovative and customized technologies.

The products placed on the market are the final result of an array of activities. Each product is distinguished by its own industrialisation process and by its own production cycle, in order to obtain the shapes, technical specifications and look requested by the customer.

Today, Unicka is specialised in the production of components having complex geometries, even very thick pieces, produced by forming or laser cutting and bending, complete with welding, machining, assembly and surface treatments.

We use all kinds of materials, including wear-resistant or stainless steels, with thicknesses ranging from 0.3 to 15 mm from coils and up to 25 mm using blanks or straps.

The production process within Unicka can be described as a pathway whose destination is the manufacture of products that have precise characteristics and that are applied in various industrial sectors.

PROCESSES

A personalized and transversal production in different sectors

Unicka’s core business is the cold forming of sheet metal. Indeed the company has been performing this process since it was founded, and over time other services were added supported by new departments and equipped with state-of-the-art systems and workstations, like bending, machining, welding, assembly and different types of threading. There is also an area entirely dedicated to the maintenance and construction of equipment.

FORMING

Cold stamping of sheet metal is one of our most important processes

We process sheets with thicknesses from 0.3 mm to 15 mm from coils and up to 25 mm from blanks and straps of any type (stainless steel, wear-resistant, galvanised and electrogalvanized steel, aluminium, pre-painted, etc.) using mechanical and hydraulic presses weighing 100 to 5,000 tonnes.

Specifically, we have:

  • No. 33 mechanical presses weighing 50 to 5,000 tonnes, for progressive and transfer dies
  • No. 2 hydraulic presses weighing 500 to 1,000 tonnes

Fibre laser cutting

The offer of metalwork services also includes the latest generation high-performance laser cutting.

The fibre laser system has a power of 10kw which guarantees cutting speed and precision even for high thicknesses and for sheets that can reach the size of 4×2 m.

Equipped with an automatic magazine, the new system allows you to optimize processing times, ensuring continuity of the production process throughout the 24 hours without breaks or downtime.

Our laser system allows the management of large production volumes, but also of small batches with speed of execution and the highest quality standards.

BENDING AND THREADING

The metalworking department in the plant completes the full-range service that Unicka offers its customers.

It is able to handle both large volumes and small batches while maintaining the same level of quality and flexibility that distinguish all our work.

We have:

  • No. 1 300 tonne LVD NC hydraulic bending machine and 4 m work surface
  • No. 1 300 tonne COLGAR hydraulic bending machine and 3 m work surface
  • No. 1 shear measuring 4 metres and 12 mm thick
  • No. 1 straightening machine

WELDING AND TACK-WELDING

In the carpentry department, Unicka has an area dedicated to robot and manual welding to allow the creation of small and large series. In this area there are 5 robot welding centres, 2 of which with 2 robots capable of welding simultaneously and up to 4 meters in length, and 2 projection welding stations (21), in addition to manual MAG wire welding stations (135).

The quality of the workmanship is guaranteed by an advanced and certified control system. The company is in fact equipped to carry out dimensional checks and non-destructive and destructive checks (visual examination, penetrating liquids, macrographs and tensile, bending and fracture tests) directly within the quality department.

MACHINING

Unicka has opted to invest in machining both for the manufacture of individual components and for mass production, installing horizontal and vertical OKUMA machining centres that are all equipped with pallet changers.

ASSEMBLY

The production departments include three manual and automatic assembly lines and one riveting machine making it possible to produce assembled products, even starting from formed and pre-painted materials.

ROBOTIC THREADING

Manual and robotized threading, which allows automatic threading of large parts, thus reducing production costs.

SURFACE TREATMENTS

To be able to manufacture finished products complete with heat and surface treatments, Unicka relies on qualified and certified external suppliers that are able to meet the high standards set by our company and the demands of our customers. The various processes include: painting, galvanizing, cataphoresis and washing.

This final step is the conclusion of a rich and complex supply chain managed by a strictly controlled process able to guarantee the traceability of the product during each single phase.

DIE AND EQUIPMENT MANUFACTORING

The principal products that Unicka is able to manufacture include:

  • Design and construction of compound, progressive and transfer dies, up to 10 metres in length
  • Design and construction of welding masks
  • Design and construction of control gauges
  • Design and construction of assembly lines

All this is possible, thanks to the presence of:

  • No. 3 milling machines
  • No. 2 wire spark erosion machines
  • No. 3 grinding machines
  • No. 3 lathes

All this equipment can also be used outside of Unicka, becoming a real product that Unicka sells to the customer, guaranteeing services for setting up and testing on the customer’s premises.
