SERVICES

Baruffi Composites Solutions takes care of the entire production process: from design to final realization.

This greatly expands the alternatives of customers who can choose whether to commission all or just some of processing steps.

Conception

During the design process, Baruffi Composites looks for the best alternatives to offer its customers. The aspects it focuses on are innovation, sustainability, new technologies and alternative materials.
Thanks to its decades of experience, it is able to offer services such as:

Cost benefit analysis
Design sketches
Product industrialization plans
3D drawings

Prototypes and Design

Taking into consideration the customer’s requests, prevailing rules and regulations define the project’s guidelines.
In this specific phase, the idea is transformed into a 3D drawing through the use of advanced software such as SIEMENS.

The goal is to create a winning product that has the best characteristics in terms of functionality, aesthetics and costs and it is based to these objectives that the BCS design office creates each project.

Production and molding

The production is completely managed within the structure, this allows us to guarantee: the speed of delivery, clear monitoring of the work progress and quality control at every stage.
Thanks to the particular attention of our employees, we are able to promptly identify the occurrence of any defects and take steps to resolve them.
The methods that are used during the production phase are the following:

Models:
in workable polyurethane boards with a density ranging from 80Kg \ m2 to 1200 Kg \ m2
in epoxy workable tables from 600Kg \ m2 to 800 Kg \ m2
in MDF (Medium-density fibreboard) in various densities
rapid prototyping (thanks to an external partner, we are able to guarantee all the technologies currently available on the market)

Molds:
in pre-preg carbon fiber with epoxy resin
in pre-preg fiberglass with epoxy resin
in vinylester fiberglass with hand lay-up technology
machined from solid aluminum
rapid prototyping (thanks to an external partner, we are able to guarantee all the technologies currently available on the market)
in MDF (Medium-density fibreboard) in various densities
Printing:
autoclave molding from 50 ° C to 180 ° C
resin infusion (infusion of polyester-vinylester and epoxy resin)
hand lay-up (polyester-vinylester and epoxy resin)
press (thanks to an external partner, we can also supply moldings of large scale parts)
RTM (resin transfer molding) (thanks to an external partner we can also provide molding of large parts in polyester-vinyl ester and epoxy resin)

Final Stage

Once the production and molding part is completed, the product is finished in several stages:

The first phase is trimming which takes place by:

5-axis cutter, water-jet robot, water-jet, manual milling

The second phase is gluing which is done in humid and controlled temperature environments. BCS is able to glue any type of insert currently on the market or alternatively create new ones.

Adhesives used are: polyester, polyurethane, methacrylate and epoxy.

The third phase consists in quality control and takes place systematically at the end of each production step as follows:

Visual inspection of class A parts
dimensional control with a FARO arm (finished parts, models or on semi-finished products)
control by means of dimensional control templates

In conclusion, based on each customer’s specific requests, the various details can be surface treated, painted or customized.
The company has ISO9001 certification for both the design and production parts.
