Benzi production a 4.0 facility
A new production plant for Benzi, the Lombardy company that has been designing, manufacturing and marketing transmission systems for agricultural machinery since 1955. The new facility in Cassano d'Adda (MI), featuring domotics and oriented towards production efficiency and environmental sustainability in a 4.0 perspective, houses an automated painting system integrated with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) management systems.
The system enables a high level of quality in the painting and finishing of products, also using nanotechnology to prevent contaminants from affecting the coating. The complex, located in the industrial area, also houses the group's commercial and management offices and will soon be home to other production departments thanks to a redistribution of activities with the Inzago (MI) site.
Benzi, led by the third generation of founder Rolando Benzi, has a production range that includes cardan transmissions, gearboxes and speed increasers, with a power range of up to 500 Hp. Customer services include the possibility of customising products with dedicated projects from conception to field testing.
The company has been present on the international market since the 1970s and currently exports to 50 countries with branches in France, in Vesoul since 2001, and in the United States, in Atlanta since 2012. Benzi's latest commercial offerings include the Secure Lock locking system for cardan shafts which, by covering the coupling button, prevents any entanglement.
Product innovation, expansion of the sales network, investment in human resources and production facilities are the company's stated objectives for the near future.
