Production and processing of the metal wire
The production process begins in Trissino where, daily, approximately 25 tonnes of wire, section steel and aluminium, are selected, cut, folded and lastly joined by means of projection, MIG or TIG welding in robotised islands and with high-tech machinery. The semifinished product is then sent to the Montecchio production unit for treatment (chrome-plating and painting), then returned to Trissino for final assembly, packaging and shipment.
Vibo boasts a finished product range of over 1500 furnishing accessories with polished chrome, matt chrome, polished stainless steel, epoxy-coated, antique copper or brass finishes: entirely Made in Italy.
Chrome plating, epoxy painting processes
The chrome plating and epoxy painting processes are carried out in the Montecchio Maggiore factory. The facility is fitted with state of the art plants in terms of both dimension and technical performance that make it possible to process the product internally and with a closed cycle, through a constantly updated production and technical know how.
The chrome plating permits high application performances (a minimum of 35 microns is guaranteed as the average thickness for the metal deposit of matt nickel, acid copper, semi-gloss nickel and chromium) with ensured rust-proof high quality ( certified by means of salt-fog-testing) and in the meantime enhance the design of the product even further.
Technical know-how, materials engineering and a strong sense of socio-environmental responsibility guarantee that Vibo respects, in every phase of production, the strict safety norms concerning environmental pollution and the protection of human health.
The chrome-plating activities carried out at the Montecchio Maggiore galvanizing works, do not in fact involve chrome passivation activities, but rather functional plating procedures with zerovalent chrome, obtained from a bath of hexavalent chrome, in full compliance with national and international directives. Therefore, as they are plated with chrome in the metal state, Vibo products do not give rise to leaching which is hazardous for people or to emissions that endanger the natural environment.
At the end, the investments made in this regard, led Vibo, among the first companies in Europe, to possession of all the requirements of the Quality and Environmental System management standards which are also guaranteed by Certifications Body: ICILA both for UNI EN ISO 14001 and UNI EN ISO 9001/2000. These two elements once again prove the qualitative excellence of the company and of its products.
Certifications: UNI EN ISO 9001 and UNI EN ISO 14001
Vibo spa was one of the first companies in its field to receive the UNI EN ISO 9001 certification in 1998. Through strict auditing the certification system analyses the whole production chain and points out standard conformities and non-conformities.
Each individual business unit interacts with the others through cross-planning and on-going verification of the separate activities. From the acceptance of the material, to the toolings, from the selection of the suppliers to the testing of the final product, Vibo assures top quality for products and services, in order to fulfil the most demanding customer’s requirements.
The UNI EN ISO 14001 environmental management certificate testifies to the company's commitment to safeguarding and defending the environment.
