Somec represents a clear example of what is associated in the world with the idea of Made in Italy: resourcefulness, passion for innovation, taste for beauty, relentless pursuit of perfection.
All this can be found in the growth path of a company that, founded in 1978 in the Treviso province, today is mainly aimed at foreign markets, with prestigious orders ranging from Boston to Shanghai, almost following the routes of large cruise ships for which creates windows and fittings for public areas and catering areas, its core business together with the design and construction of facades and external fittings, particularly in the USA.
Somec in this path has found in Mappi a partner who shares its objectives and approach. Even the Italian company, one of the world leaders in the design and construction of hardening furnaces, has based its growth path on the pursuit of excellence, on the desire to go beyond standards, to seek partnerships based on the pursuit of excellence, as with Siemens, to deal with the needs and projects of market leaders, as Somec undoubtedly is.
The meeting point between Mappi and Somec was an ATS 4.0 tempering furnace, the spearhead of the Mappi range, the machine that has received unconditional appreciation from all the main players in the glass industry for the constant quality of the glass sheets, which temper, for ease of use, for simplicity in management and maintenance, for absolute reliability, as well as for extremely low energy consumption and for full compatibility with MindSphere and with all Siemens management applications that make it the perfect solution for those who see industry 4.0 not only the future but already the present.
The new oven is an ATS 4.0 2.500x5.000. This, like all new generation Mappi ovens, is equipped with GHBS Xtreme Profile Convection System, the system that significantly improves the performance of the oven in terms of tempered product quality and increased production.
Thanks to its size and versatility, this furnace is particularly suitable for the tempering of flat glass that depart from the San Vendemiano headquarters, to be destined for the outfitting of large cruise ships, those boats that, almost like floating skyscrapers, we are used to seeing with large glass surfaces, with perfect flatness, ideal for reflecting or filtering the sun of the seas around the world and, why not, to be ambassadors of what Made in Italy means, especially when two companies united by the same passion combine their skills.
