    Precision packed into a small footprint

    Headquartered near Barcelona, in Catalonia, Vilardell specialises in the production of precision parts with a high added value and comprises two divisions, the Medical Division and the Industrial Division.

    At the Industrial Division, Jordi Roy Torras, Manager of the Industrial Division says Vilardell has specialised in the production of highly complex parts for some time. “This is our core competence. Something we have developed year after year and part by part.”

    “We employ 165 staff and they are very important to us,” Jordi Roy Torras explains. “Almost every day, we are faced with new challenges. Even with the best machines, we wouldn’t be able to tackle these challenges, if we didn’t have such a strong team! Our customers know that they can count on us and on our expertise when it comes to meeting any machining challenge. We have to keep our minds open and focus on innovation as one of our key values. Each and every one of us has to remain innovative, irrespective of his or her position or function within the company, that’s essential for our business.”

    Luckily, the company has invested in technology from Tornos. The long-standing collaboration with Tornos now boasts an impressive inventory of equipment that includes a small number of single-spindle cam machines (T-4, R-10 and MS7) and a large number of multi-spindle machines (AS 14, SAS 16 and SAS 16 DC). In terms of CNC machines, the company’s fleet includes the Deco 10, Deco 13, Deco 20, Sigma 20 and the EvoDeco 16 models.

    “We are determined to provide our customers with comprehensive service and are collaborating closely with them. We try to understand their needs and provide advice to jointly optimise the machining processes. Over time, we have gathered a profound expertise in our key markets, and we can efficiently advise our customers in various fields, be it in the automotive, aerospace or in any other industrial sector requiring precision-turned parts.”

    “The focus is on high added-value products and this requires us to integrate new technologies, such as the latest machines from Tornos. We also pay special attention to quality and we hold ISO: 9001 and IATF: 16949 certifications.”

    Recently, Vilardell purchased a MultiSwiss 6×16 machine, but what made the company opt for this machine? “The choice was driven by rational motivation. In terms of technical specifications, the machine is simply the best in the market.However, we had to also consider the restricted space in our plant. The MultiSwiss boasts the most compact footprint and is definitely the most efficient machine in the market.”

    “At first sight, this small footprint may seem to be trivial. However, it makes the difference. The machine is really doing well and the fact that it is equipped with a container comprising all peripherals is a key advantage for us. The machine works perfectly and the peripherals are very well integrated.”

    “We are extremely satisfied with the machine performance. The hydrostatic features work wonders and we are able to achieve an excellent surface finish whereas the tool wear is well below the wear of conventional machines. In addition, the machine boasts excellent ergonomic features.”

    “The operator can really enter the machining area without difficulty. The tools can easily be installed in the machine without the need for the operator to lean into the machining area and the machine set-up can be realised in next to no time. The MultiSwiss doesn’t only offer excellent performance but also complete ease of operation. Thanks to its high level of productivity, the machine enables us to multiply our performance per square meter while guaranteeing an outstanding part quality both in terms of precision and surface finish.”

    “It should also be noted that the collaboration with Tornos is excellent and that their service stands out for its high responsiveness. “This really is a combination that pays off for us,” concludes Mr Jordi Roy Torras.
