Setro switched to Metalix for Mazak lasers and Alphatome plasma
S.C. SETRO METAL GROUP S.A. was founded in 2004. The group’s main activity is the manufacturing of metal constructions and component parts of metal structures.
Since its establishment, the activity of the company has been channeled to two main activities:
- Cutting materials with laser, oxy-gas, and plasma cutting systems using numerical control.
- Mechanical execution of metalwork: welding, sandblasting, priming, and painting for resistance, structures of metal halls, or for various types of metal containers for the storing and transporting of automotive parts.
When SETRO searched for a package having both the best nesting, for their Mazak lasers (Mazak Laser 2Kw, Mazak Laser 4 Kw) and plasmas (Plasma/Oxi Alphatome, Oxitome), and for the best production control, they turned to Metalix. Says Ing. Adrian Bratescui (General Manager):
Before changing to Metalix, our CAM department used 2 or 3 different software for programming our different laser and plasma machines.
cncKad revolutionized the way we use our CAM software. Our nesting is now more efficient, saving tons of sheet metal monthly, faster, and unified.
Using JobTrack, the Metalix’s ERP, we manage our sheet database so that we can: account for every sheet and remnant, track parts and nests by customers and projects, and know in real time our production status.
The Metalix team was flexible and studied our needs while they were implementing their software. Using JobTrack, we are able to add together features. We find Metalix to be a good and attentive partner that takes the time to learn our production flux and implement changes accordingly.
