Viba chose Stain solutions

Viba has been operating for more than 20 years in the extrusion and production of aluminium profiles, and has two production sites in the province of Brescia. The collaboration with Stain transpired from a desire to computerise systems and machine input/output previously provided on paper.

Project description


  • Integration with company management system software for the import of production orders by header/matrix and automatic generation of totals (parts, kg, times).
  • Management of extrusion parameters to send to plants.
  • Capture of all process parameters from plant PLCs. 
  • Computerised correlation between production parameters (production order/item/matrix etc.) and process parameters used for extruding profiles.
  • Analysis of billet figures with filters by period, item, shift, operator, heat, etc.
  • Analysis of extrusion figures with filters by period, item, shift, operator, heat, etc.
  • Auto-testing management with auto-test plans by profile and logging of results and reasons for non-compliance. 
  • Computerised basket management and status throughout the production cycle.
  • Tracking of the ageing process (times, operators, furnace) for each casting basket/profile.
  • Management of packaging operations, weighing and identification with personalised labels for each pack of profiles.
  • Management of finished product warehouse and consignment process with computerised packing lists.



  • 100% elimination of paper. 
  • Objective improvement in performance levels.
  • Indicators to analyse the optimum for certain products and measure the attainment of objectives.
  • Real time integration with the company management system.
