Research and Development
A team of qualified technicians, state-of-the art processing and control systems as well as advanced testing and trials: consolidating technologies is at the core of our manufacturing approach in order to optimise both the function as well as the quality.
Sophisticated tests check the performances of products or of the single components.
This is where the prototypes designed by the R&D department are built and tested.
Making of moulds
Kastel keeps its entire manufacturing process closely under control, by opting for in-house design as well as for the manufacturing of the moulds, which are required for each component.
In the very first stage of the manufacturing process, sheet metal is cut by automatic laser cutting machines for maximum precision and greater cutting flexibility.
Sheet metal is bent by robots and automatic panel benders guaranteeing constant high performance and long-term bending precision.
Spot welding and welding
The bent sheets are coupled with templates by automatic machines and robots and then spot welded. This is followed by pulsed TIG welding to permanently connect the parts.
After the casing has been built, the various components are mounted on the 5 different production lines in the assembly phase. The functioning and electronics of the assembled machines then undergo a series of tests.
The finished goods are then transported to a vast packaging and storage area until being dispatched.
From the purchasing of raw materials to their processing; a great commitment to ensure the quality of each element.
For years Kastel has been committed to an attentive research and selection of materials and component suppliers within the local territory. Furthermore the entire manufacturing process is carried out in the Castelfranco Veneto premises respecting detailed assessments at each stage.
100% Made in Italy, which acts as a genuine warranty of the highest manufacturing level for quality and reliability.
Sustainability is a philosophy which must be respected from the beginning, in every business decision and during every business activity.
Kastel operates with the utmost attention towards environmental protection, firmly convinced that the market protagonists are to be essentially responsible for the respect of their surrounding territories and to boost healthy and long-term progress.
By means of scrupulous research of the most innovative technologies, Kastel is committed to improving the efficiency of all manufacturing procedures and to create products aimed towards saving water and energy further to reducing detergent use, in order to reach a significant reduction in energy consumption and consequently a reduced environmental impact.
