The manufacturing of ride-on mowers involves two key stages - sheet metal work and assembly.

Sheet metal work

The sheet metal work is done by four welding robots with a numerical axis manipulator (90% of the welded components are made on site), a Trumpf punch press, a Bystronic laser cutter , automatic sheet loading and unloading systems and lastly two numerically controlled bending machines.

Assembly

Assembly is carried out on three lines, each with test benches for checking  the quality of the product before shipping.

The first line was inaugurated in 1989, and it is used to assemble petrol ride-on mowers with cutting widths of 80-100 cm. This is an automotive -type production line and is 100 m long with 10 self-propelled trucks. The assembly work is done by two shifts of 16 people with a maximum daily capacity of 60 machines.

The test booth has two benches with a computerised data acquisition system for tracking and archiving the technical characteristics of each machine produced.

 

The Diesel assembly line is dedicated to the production of 100% professional models with cutting widths 100, 124 and 144 cm, some of which include over 1,000 components. The line is 45 m long and can currently produce 8 machines a day in one shift, so 16 machines a day.

The diesel line test booth  is unique in Europe : every product spends almost an hour on the bench. The hydraulic circuit is checked for pollution , leaks are detected with UV light, engines are adjusted etc. All the parameters are savec in the computer system via an acquisition system for traceability purposes.

The last line is dedicated to the assembly of Biocut SKM (mulching mower) and Attila SKF (brush cutter) machines with a cutting  width of 85 cm. The line is 30 m long and has 8 assembly stations with a current capacity of 14 machines per day.  

Production support/internal logistics services benefit from Wi-Fi coverage throughout the plant to track the materials and manage stock in real time thanks to on board equipment on forklift trucks. Incoming goods are entered directly into the system by staff using Pocket PCs.
