PRIMA GRINDING MACHINE

Electronic control grinder for sleeves and rollers coated in rubber and/or technopolymers. Grinder managed via PLC with a control panel and customisable software designed to machine sleeves and rollers coated in rubber and/or technopolymers. The double function of initial roughing (turning) and final precision grinding make the product excellent for every type of work, allowing all the machining phases by positioning the piece just once. All the machining processes and their automatic repetition are possible thanks to proprietary managed software: trapezoidal-conical-convex profile, de-layering, rounding, edge trimming, turning and grinding. The compact size of the machine, the elimination of intermediate warehouses which are no longer necessary because the piece is finished directly on the machine, the reduced maintenance and the fast ROI are just some of the advantages offered by this innovative product.

About us

Company details

Rossini SpA is world leader in the manufacture of roto and flexo sleeves. The Rescaldina offices, just outside Milan, are the headquarters of an extensive network including 7 production sites and 4 sales offices in different parts of the world. The company was established in 1928 from an intuition of Erminio Rossini, who started the first small workshop producing inking rollers for printing presses.

Since then the company has travelled a path of constant development, marked by the passage from the original workshop to a full- edged production site in Milan. From the 1950’s until today, Rossini has been consolidating a network which today include sites in Rescaldina (Milan), L’Aquila, Atlanta (USA), Barcelona (Spain), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Timisoara (Romania) and Pune (India), all connected by an e cient intercontinental distribution system.

The R&D department plays a central role in designing and testing new products and materials, often destined to set the standard in the industry. Rossini is a strongly innovative company, as testified by the many market- leading patents. The company also includes a Global Customer Satisfaction center, the point of departure and arrival for our customer service department which connects clients directly to the most qualified person to take care of their needs.
