Deba Fasteners and Lazpiur announce manufacturing collaboration

July 15, 2016- Deba Fasteners and Lazpiur have started a special collaboration which promises to stimulate the growth of both companies in terms of competitiveness and the provision of services.

Both of them have their headquarters in the same town, Bergara in Gipuzkoa. The former is dedicated to the manufacture of fastening elements, above all for the automotive market. The latter has two lines of business; one consists in building high-precision machines, some of which are specially indicated for the fastener sector. Curiously, they had never worked together.

Deba had, until now, entrusted other machinery manufacturers with their machines. However, they encountered a problem. They couldn't find a reliable supplier who could offer them the entire range of inspection machines with the ‘best-in-class’ technologies application which could adapt their machines to the reality of Deba's requirements and who could offer an appropriate after-sales service. 

In recent months, they searched for a machine which could guarantee an optimum quality control for their products. Ultimately, they found the best option and, what's more, in their own town, Bergara. Lazpiur has a market range of inspection machines for fasteners which include glass rotary plate machines, metal plate based machines, robotized machines, machines with the new ‘on the fly’ system with artificial vision, ‘eddy current’, controls in 360º, etc.

This product quality and quality in service was what made Mikel Egiazu, Managing Director of Deba Fasteners, decide on Lazpiur's machine, a BEGItech MRT with metal plate. Since becoming Managing Director of the company, he has endeavoured to improve productivity and to ensure that production resources give top performance. “If you really need suitable solutions for strategic problems, why not take into account the total cost of the investment, instead of minimising the procurement cost?”, Deba's Manager asks himself. “I tend to find it strange that companies from countries which are technologically more advanced come to our area to find more balanced solutions with regard to quality-price-service, whilst we often don't even explore what's on our own doorstep”, Mikel Egiazu explains.

The new machine, which is already  functioning, controls sensitive types of parts, which are welded to the shock absorber shaft of vehicles. The BEGItech MRT enables controlling that the fasteners don't have cracks (this is achieved using an eddy current system), or surface defects. The state-of-the-art machine uses a photometry vision system. It also controls the measurements of the parts and possible thread damage defects. Its capacity is between 40 and 60 parts per minute.
