With regards to automotive sector, the integration of the companies’ consolidate skills and experience gained over the years, along with their collaboration with some of the most important players of the sector, will enable to supply turnkey plants.

At the same time, in the home appliance sector, Cugher and Iocco cooperation will be significant for the construction of complete plants, both for small and large-sized productions.


Perfect Integration

Cugher and Iocco consolidate the partnershipCugher machines will integrate with complete lines from Iocco, interposing downstream of the of the glass washing phase and upstream of the bending and tempering processes.

All phases regarding control and analysis of glass are thus covered, along with decorative and/or functional printing such as for antennas, heaters, sensors, cameras contacts etc.

The cooperation between Cugher and Iocco will result in great benefits, both on the technical and commercial side.

An example is fact that the lines can be equipped with components common to both companies, and customers will therefore have the important advantage of optimizing their spare parts stock.

In addition, the use of identical automation systems will allow to standardize user interfaces and simplify their use. In this way learning times will shorten.

This ensures considerable savings in terms of maintenance costs and costs for technical staff. The exchange of data between Cugher and Iocco lines will take place simply and functionally to optimize the production process.

In the medium- to long term, and in accordance with the specific commercial agreements, technical staff of both companies will work together to develop common skills. Cugher technicians will be able to collaborate during installation, working on Iocco lines and vice versa.
