“In…the role of leading supplier to the industry of coating and laminating machinery, we have never interrupted production and service through the most critical times of the virus crisis,” the company says in a press release. “Being an essential business, in fact, we have been allowed to keep our production departments up and running and our after-sales service location operative around the world. In particular, shipment and installations of new machines have not been discontinued.
“In compliance with travel restrictions, Nordmeccanica has completed a significant number of installations and startups managed remotely. Constantia is a customer we serve in multiple locations around the world.”
The machine was erected, aligned, and started up through joint cooperation between the customer and two distinct crews from Nordmeccanica, one based at the corporate Italian offices and the other at the Hauppauge, NY, location. Machine is now up and running.
“Due to the challenging COVID-19 situation ,we were forced to delay the startup of the Lamination Combi2 and had to start the tests for the acceptance of the machine remotely,” explains Constantia Aluprint General Manager Enrico Vischi. “With the help of the two teams of Nordmeccanica and Aluprint, we have achieved an outstanding result in a very short time. You have to take into consideration that we had to manage a time difference of 7 hours, which meant that the Mexican team had to start very early and the Italian team was on duty until local 10 p.m.
“Now we are in the second week of production, three shifts and no complications have occurred. Without an excellent collaboration this successful start wouldn’t have been possible, and I would like to thank especially [Nordmeccanica VP-Technology] Vincenzo Cerciello and the Nordmeccanica team for their efforts, dedication and passion to keep our site running in these difficult times;” Vischi adds.
“Multiple factors allow us to perform these tasks: we are the only OEM in our industry to fully complete as a standard machine setup and test at the factory before shipment; the use of the most advanced technologies in communication; the fully digital setup of our products; the professionalism of our technicians,” says Cerciello. “We are totally projected into the future while handling from remote operations that have always been completed with the physical presence of technicians and technologists. The qualities of our customers, of course, play a primary role, and we are deeply grateful to Constantia and the Aluprint management for their availability and full cooperation.”
