Sir Meccanica SpA is a world leader in the production of portable machine tools.
Since 1991, the company has been producing tools for onsite operations, including in-line boring, overlay welding, flange facing, turning, drilling, and tapping. With all of its products, the company strives to achieve the fundamental principles of innovation, reliability, and quality.
Sir Meccanica aims to meet its clients’ needs. As the shipping industry evolves, clients require more than a simple machine tool; clients need a customised tool that is specially designed for their needs. As experts in manufacturing, the company has created many innovative and revolutionary solutions for the shipping industry. Sir Meccanica aims to pass on its knowledge by providing customers with solutions that they can then integrate into their own production to improve processes and make them more efficient.
Customisable portable machine tools for the shipping industry
Sir Meccanica’s portable machine tools are easy to set up and can be used onsite to repair worn holes and heavy equipment articulated joints with extreme precision and reliability. The company’s tools are suitable for a variety of civil and naval maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) and are used throughout the maritime and shipping industries. The portable tools are extremely useful for maintenance onboard ships, vessels, offshore support vessels, dry cargo vessels, cruise vessels, and bulk carriers. The portability of the tools also means that they can be used to repair machinery of any size.
Some key advantages of the portable tools include: the ability to perform onsite maintenance, an 85% reduction in down time, and no equipment disassembly is required. This means that transportation and labour costs are reduced, making the portable tools a more cost-effective alternative. The tools are also customisable, depending on customer requirements, meaning that there are more than 30 models of portable tools to suit a variety of machining operations and working diameters.
Every machine is powered by an electronic control panel that allows the operator to set and monitor both the rotation and the feed speed. The patented ESPS system avoids overloading the machine as a safety precaution in case any parameters are incorrectly set.
For the CNC machine tools, the control panel is enhanced by a touch screen display, with a user-friendly CNC interface. It allows the operator to execute manual and CAM created programs with ease.
