Set up in the 1970s by Gabriele Rumi, FONDMETAL became a specialist in sub-contracted metal casting operations, and is now a leader in light alloy wheels. The collaboration with Stain transpired from the need to have tools to capture production information at the same speed and accuracy as products, to detect hidden costs and increase productivity.
As part of ongoing company improvement, FONDMETAL also chose the PRD+ module of the STAIN+ suite to collect data and manage production in all departments.
The Fondmetal Chairman, Stefano Rumi, explains why Stain is an ideal partner to meet the strategic demand for increased competitiveness:
“Obviously we want machines that are increasingly faster and more precise, but we also have to think about introducing tools that provide information on production that has the same speed and precision as our products, to detect hidden costs in production processes that we can't manage to eliminate due to the lack of information that reveals them.”
