In the latest edition of the magazine Sheet Metal we discuss about our SAGOMA lubrication system through the testimony of our customer AGA Rangemaster, a British manufacturer of stainless steel sinks, who came to the installation of the third DieTronic system 🎉 The full article follows: “DEEP-DRAWING SMART LUBRICATION SYSTEM After the supply of a first lubrication device in 2019 and a second in 2021, UK stainless-steel sink producer AGA Rangemaster recently installed its third Dietronic SAGOMA-series lubrication system for its deep drawing process. The investment has increased yield and led to a significant reduction in oil consumption, according to AGA Rangemaster. “These considerable benefits made the justification for a second, and then a third, system very straightforward decisions. At the time, we were using a couple of lubricators supplied by another company, but we were not very satisfied with them. The technology was outdated and so we started to seriously consider a restoring project for the lubrication stations”, explained Jason Allaway, Group Manufacturing Director, AGA Rangemaster. At Dietronic’s premises, it inspected a SAGOMA system with conveyors in operation and did some tests to evaluate the machine’s functionality. It also had more specific requirements for its particular application. “The package was complete including inlet/outlet conveyors with lateral centring unit, a feature that is very useful for the sink manufacturing process and something that we considered for our project. We saw how the spray patterns could easily be programmed for the variety of different blanks used to produce the sinks. A very smart feature of SAGOMA is the ‘teach-itself’ function of the blank shape with a quickpass through the sensor bank. After this, the operator can programme exactly where the oil is needed and the quantity to apply by application in 50mm x 50 mm sections, easily selectable from the touch-screen panel. The recipe system then stores each programme for rapid start-up after changeovers. This was what we needed”, continued Jason Allaway. After two years, the company decide to implement a second SAGOMA system featuring an external automatic spray-head cleaning system. The device is designed to automatically clean quickly and facilitate off-line maintenance operations on the spray heads and internal manifolds. The procedure implements a full flushing, cleaning, drying and diagnostic check of each nozzle with each stage displayed on the HMI in ‘real-time’ information. The process is completed quickly with a 20-nozzle system in just over five minutes. “Both spray heads can be removed, cleaned and returned to the machine in around 15 minutes. If you have a set of spare additional spray heads set (as in our case), you won’t have to stop your production”, outlined Allaway. “The greatest difference that we immediately noted with the first system was the significant saving in oil consumption, compared to our previous lubricators. Our oil consumption has reduced by more than 70% with the Dietronic system compared to the old lubricators. We also marked a noticeable improvement in the working environment, such as greatly decreased oil mist (thanks to the high-level extraction system with HEPA filter) and reduced oil on the floor and on the machinery”, he added. Dietronic specialises in sheet-metal lubrication and the protection of tubes and profiles, as well as customised process automation solutions.”

🎯Reached 1000 systems produced!🎯

🎉 We’re pleased to announce the achievement of the 1000 machines produced! 🎉 With the 20th anniversary of our company, we celebrate another great success: we produced the thousandth system branded DieTronic! The order that led us to reach this goal was the well-known Antirust system, which enables the in-line application of rust protective oil onto the surface of tubes and profiles. We are all really proud of this important result and we wish it can be a starting point towards many other achievements. Thanks everybody for the trust placed in us, Your DieTronic team  


Don’t miss the May issue dedicated to the Lamiera Trade Fair on page. 111 and the interview with our Sales Manager on page. 192-193, for the occasion of the 20th anniversary of DieTronic activity. SPECIAL SHEET METAL FAIR Controlled and professional lubrication systems Hall 13, Booth D07 “2023 represents a special year for DieTronic, a company based in Lodi and specialized in the production of oiling systems for metal stamping and forming industry. In fact, this year Dietronic celebrates its 20th year of activity and the Lamiera fair will be the right occasion to give prestige to this milestone and to illustrate the developments and innovations of these recent months. Versatile and easy to apply lubrication After the positive feedback collected last year, the Promax strip lubrication system is still confirmed as a favorite in the varied range of DieTronic products and will be the protagonist during the exhibition: versatility and ease of use are its two distinctive and most appreciated features. This device, as well as all the other oiling systems in the company’s portfolio, grants a correct and controlled application of lubricant, so that the sheet receives the optimal quantity of product in the most critical points, without causing scratches and defects which could impact the quality of the finished product. In addition to this, another aspect that should not be underestimated is the healthiness of the work environment, which with greater control over lubrication is cleaner and safer for operators. Finally, the long-term benefits that controlled and professional lubrication systems can bring must also be considered: i.e. greater productivity, a significant reduction in oil and energy consumption, fewer scraps and less frequent need for maintenance or repairs of tools. Simple and flexible configuration More in detail, the Promax system has been designed to provide controlled strip lubrication, allowing you to select the desired amount of lubricant from 0.5 to 5 g/m2, only certain areas of the sheet metal surface. The configuration is deliberately very simple and flexible: the standard system consists of a spray box available in various sizes (from 200 to 800 mm depending on the sheet to be processed), and a 24 l pressurized tank, which can be easily interchanged, making it possible to manage even more oils. The company has also provided additional components, which may or may not be incorporated into the basic machinery: a suction system to remove any oil mists that could form during the spraying, a waste product recovery system to avoid dispersing the excess oil, and the Lubo-die unit, which allows a possible re-lubrication of some specific points, typically of the die. In this sense, Promax is proposed as an effective solution especially for those who want to approach the technology and the advantages of automatic spray lubrication systems.” INTERVIEW “Specialized in the production of lubrication and anti-rust protection systems for pipes and profiles, a company that has always paid great attention to innovation. Giovanni Amato, Sales Manager of DieTronic Srl tells us more about this reality: Which features define your reality the most?

📜 Special article dedicated to the upcoming fair LAMIERA 2022

On the special edition dedicated to the upcoming Lamiera fair, which will be held at Rho Fiera in Milan from the 18th to 21st of May, DieTronic talks about the latest technological innovations that will present during the event: “DieTronic will be among the participants of the fair Lamiera 2022 in Milan. The company, which has been operating in the sheet metal stamping sector for years offering solutions for lubrication, takes this opportunity to present its innovations to professionals in the field. ROLL SYSTEMS One of these news concerns the expansion of the catalog of roller systems, in which lubrication takes place by means of two rollers, one upper and one lower, through which the lubricating oil is delivered during the passage of the sheet. The adjustment between the upper roller and the material can take place by means of traction springs or by pneumatic pistons; the rollers are also available in various sizes (from 50 to 1000 mm) and different diameters (32, 60 or 110 mm), adapting to different material thicknesses (from 0,5 to 10 mm). In this way, the application fields also extend, for example, to progressive molding, small metal parts and motor lamination. With these new systems, the company thus aims to expand its market, maintaining competitive prices and still ensuring maximum quality. SPRAY SYSTEMS However, the product on which DieTronic focuses the most this year is the new Promax spray system, a device that allows automatic strip lubrication, with the possibility to select only specific areas on which applying the product. Its configuration is simple and flexible: the standard system consists of a spray box available in various sizes (from 200 to 800 mm), and a 24 lt pressurized tank, which can be easily interchanged, also making it possible to manage more oils. The company has also provided additional components, which can be incorporated in the basic machinery: a suction system to remove any oily mists that could form during the spraying phase, a waste product recovery system so as not to disperse excess oil, and the Promax-die, which allows any re -lubrication of some specific points of the mold. In this sense, the Promax is proposed as an alternative to spray simply but effectively for the same applications mentioned above, but which exploits all the advantages of spray lubrication at an affordable price. The common feature of both proposals, as well as all the other DieTronic systems, is to grant a correct and controlled application of lubricant, so that the sheet receives the optimal amount of product in the most critical points, without causing scratches and streaks that could impact on the quality of the finished product. In addition to this, another aspect not to be underestimated is the healthiness of the work environment, which with greater control over lubrication is cleaner and safer for operators. Finally, nevertheless the benefits in terms of higher productivity, significant reduction in oil and energy consumption, fewer waste and less frequent need for maintenance or repair of tools must be considered. “

📜DieTronic on the March issue of Lamiera!

Don’t miss our article on ‘Lubrication Solutions for Metalforming Processes‘ published on page 95 of the March edition of Lamiera magazine: “Problems related to improper lubrication can be easily solved by employing a controlled lubrication system, which ensures that all essential areas receive adequate lubrication, while avoiding unnecessary product overdose, keeping the working environment safe and reducing the lubricant consumption from 50 to 90%.   DieTronic’s unique and patented technology aims to provide complete and precise lubrication for effective protection of the final product. This also brings benefits in terms of higher productivity, a significant reduction in waste products and not least a lower need for maintenance or repair of tools. In this regard, DieTronic’s goal for over 20 years has been to provide high-quality controlled lubrication systems and to develop cutting-edge solutions that follow the ever-changing technological trends in the field.   To meet all the different needs of its customers, DieTronic has created a wide selection of products in its portfolio, which ranges from simple felt roller lubrication systems to semi-automatic and automatic spray systems, covering all the main applications of metal-forming and profiling industry.   With a variety of possible configurations, DieTronic systems are capable of applying lubricant to one or both sides of the sheet, in widths from 50 to 2000mm and thicknesses from 0.2 to 12mm. Furthermore, its systems are compatible with the part of the lubricants on the market (pure low, medium and high viscosity products, as well as emulsifiable and evaporable products) with different options for dispensing more lubricant (from the use of pressurized tanks to the use of pumps). Depending on the needs, the lubrication units can also be integrated with further options, for example the oil mist suction system to reduce any oil dispersion that could form during spraying and disperse in the air, or a small tank to collect waste products, as well as other elements that can be integrated. “

🔎📜DieTronic on the July issue of Tube&Pipe Magazine

Don’t miss our article on the July issue on page 29 of the magazine Tube&Pipe: “What DieTronic has been developing in the last 15 years of activity is a complete solution against the well-known issue of oxidation on tubes and pipes: a quite frequent problem for tube manufacturers, particularly common during transport and long periods of outdoor stockage with great changes in temperature. In this regard, rust is a problem that shall not be overlooked as results into a poor product quality that may lead, in worst cases, to have to reject a great amount of production. To avoid this, DieTronic has designed a complete anticorrosion solution, which comprise cleaning of coil, cleaning of welded tube, anticorrosive spraying system and saw blade lubrication unit. The first device proposed is the Coil Cleaning system that, placed before the tube forming section, ensures the cleaning of the coil thanks to the use of an upper and a lower roller with rotating brushes. The next essential unit, located after the forming and the welding section, is the Tube Cleaner system, which allows a first deep pre-cleaning, especially important for very dirty tubes, through the use of solvents or water-based products; after that, a pneumatic Air Knife, placed at the entrance of the Antirust system, is usually always provided, as it blows air directly on the tube, preparing a perfectly clean and dry tube surface, thus optimizing the later application of anticorrosive fluids. After these first three useful accessories, the real Antirust spraying machine comes into play: the system was conceived and enhanced over the years to apply the rust preventive oil (RPO) in an automatic and precise way, thanks to the possibility to set the desired amount of anticorrosive product in g/m2 (from 0,5 to 10 g/ m2) from the operator touch-screen panel, in a very easy and intuitive way. In this sense, the Antirust is able to spray the right amount of product in a constant and homogenous way, covering the whole tube surface and adjusting the RPO quantity to apply automatically and proportionally to the line speed, detected thanks to the presence of an encoder. As a result, the system does not only grant an excellent application quality and a complete tube protection against rusting, but it also consistently decreases the consumption of anticorrosive fluids, which can be reduced up to the 80% thanks to its distinguishing design. To enhance even more the features of this unique tool, this year main goal is the launch of a new Antirust with some innovative aspects, following the 4.0 manufacturing industry trend. Stay tuned for more updates on the Antirust 4.0 and don’t miss the November Tube&Pipe issue, with special focus on the Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) technique for the Saw Blade.”
