Manufacturing Machine and Drive (MMD)

Manufacturing Machine and Drive (MMD)

The Manufacturing Machine & Drive (MMD) division designs and manufactures hardware and software systems for production lines and industrial machines, developed in collaboration with manufacturers and end-users; provides electrical panels, software and on-site commissioning services by integrating safety functions, using simulation techniques, creating the digital twin of the plant for performance checks and virtual commissioning, guaranteeing performance and minimizing intervention times.

MMD provides its customers:

  • Organization skills (consolidated project management on large and multi-year projects, such as green fields);
  • Engineering skills (architecture of the control system, electrical engineering, functional design, software design, machine safety);
  • Implementation skills (software development and commissioning, drive configuration, construction of electrical panels and installation on the machine);

in the development of the following projects:

  • New plant / machine;
  • Revamping of existing plant;
  • Safety level adjustment;
  • Digital twin creation for prototypes;
  • Energy efficiency;
  • Data collection and IoT;
  • Service on existing systems.

The areas in which the main experiences have been gained are:


  • Electric arc furnace (EAF), Laddle furnace (LF), vacuum treatment (VD)
  • Fume extraction systems
  • Plants for the transport and dosage of ferroalloys
  • Continuous vertical and curved castings
  • Plants and machines for cutting bars
  • Rotary and longitudinal heating furnaces
  • Sheet metal unwinding lines
  • Shears.

Seamless steel pipe (from “bar” to “finished” pipe)

  • Perforators
  • Rolling mills (with retained and continuous spindle)
  • Phosphating lines
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Grinding machines
  • Single or layer cutting machines
  • Visual inspection areas
  • Make-up areas (length measurement, weighing, punching, marking and packaging)
  • Laboratory machines (tribometer).

Production machines

  • Machines for optimized wood cutting (logs and planks);
  • Eccentric presses for molding and padding of sheets with automatic mold loading and unloading;
  • Lines for the production of cans and tubes (toggle press, die, lathe, internal painting machine, boxing machines).

Semi-finished assembly and packaging systems

  • Bottling lines
  • Fill lines
  • Food packaging
  • Assembly and welding systems for automotive batteries.
