Why does annual scheduled maintenance pay off?

Più Increased safety for your machine tools

Numerical control machines play a central role in modern smart factories that have embraced the benefits and challenges of Industry 4.0. Affinché However, they must function optimally in order to consistently perform at their maximum capacity. Otherwise, there is a risk of unforeseen production slowdowns, machine downtime and, in some cases, even severe damages and financial losses. How can we prevent these risks? By scheduling an annual electronic and mechanical check-up. Performing scheduled preventive maintenance on your CNC machines means safeguarding the well-being of your personnel and the entire production chain.


CNC machine check-up: a guarantee of savings

Resolving any malfunctions that may arise from prolonged use of a machine tool before they become major problems is not just a smart move but also a guarantee of savings. In fact, taking care of your CNC machines automatically benefits your company's bottom line. Regular check-ups result in minimising machine tool repair costs and times, while also alleviating frustrations and concerns.


The service you need, when you need it

Due to the wide range of multi-brand CNC machine tools available today, each with its own set of tools and capabilities, it is becoming increasingly important to rely on an expert partner to plan your periodic maintenance. With over 20 years of experience, Assistec provides mechanical and electronic support, including scheduled maintenance, for CNC machines, offering a comprehensive service tailored to your needs. From the overhaul of spindles and electro-spindles to the retrofitting of lathes and machining centres, up to the grinding of spindle cone directly on the machine, and much more!

  • CNC programming: a complete guide

    Programming a computer numerical control machine, also known as a CNC machine, is not a simple operation, and requires a certain amount of experience in the field. When we talk about CNC programming, we’re referring to the process of creating computer commands, generally G-codes, used to control these automated production tools, able to carry out precise and complex operations, often for the metalworking sector, such as cuttingmilling and drilling on a variety of materials. These instructions include: information on the movements of the tool, the speed of the spindle, feed rates, tool changes and other parameters necessary to carry out a particular process. Each process in the programming of the CNC machine tool is carried out using an integrated electronic device, usually an on-board computer.

    Evolution is the basis of adaptation and survival of species. It applies in biology as well as in economic and industrial dynamics: markets change, technologies update, companies evolve.
    Antonio La Placa's story is a striking example of this evolutionary capacity: after gaining extensive experience in Germany as a FANUC technician, in 1998 he returned to Italy where he founded Assistec. Initially focused on the electronic technical support of CNC machine tools for chip removal equipped with FANUC components (numerical controls, motors, drives, power supplies, electronic boards), he soon expanded his offer with additional, increasingly advanced services.
