Even in a difficult moment like the one we are going through, Brustia-Alfameccanica – specialised in the production of heel nailing and fixing machines, backpart and toe moulding machines, x-ray quality control machines – continues to demonstrate its particular aptitude and flexibility for concrete innovation, keeping production in line with market needs.
It has nothing to do, if not indirectly, with the footwear sector, but the innovations proposed in these months of health emergency (thermal scanners, 3D-printed visors, sanitisation ozonisers) confirm the ability of Brustia-Alfameccanica to know how to use its multiple skills to solve various problems.

It is a constant, found also during SIMAC 2020, where the company of Vigevano has heavily relied on RFID technology, developed by its newly formed innovative start-up BAT, dedicated to the world of smart solutions that can streamline and automate the management and production processes of companies. “We have found a lot of interest in RFID technology applied to intelligent warehouse management, traceability and interconnection – confirms the company.
A technology that allows machines to independently prepare for correct processing, to keep track of the progress of the production phases even remotely, to easily manage and organise the warehouse, and to obtain immediate digital reports.
The theme Traceability is very important: thanks to the possibility of including information relating to the raw materials used and their origin, it is easier to create a value chain linked to the concepts of sustainability”.

There is also enthusiasm for the new machines devoted to Quality Control. In particular, for the new device intended for sampling and small productions. The MM500 model, which has a smaller scanning area, allows, in fact, a quality control just nearby the production line, no longer just applied to the final product.
The considerable advantages related to identifying foreign bodies or badly applied nails, as well as incorrectly carried out operations, directly in the conveyor and through immediate feedback, from the early construction stages, are easy to guess.

Lastly, Brustia-Alfameccanica’s now established attention to innovation linked to interconnection and Industry 4.0 should be stressed out: all the machines presented at the fair were equipped with technologies capable of concretely helping shoe factories that ever more need to manage small quantity orders and keep under control an increasingly fragmented and diversified production.
