Edgar and Pablo Grivel, owners of Grivel Opening
The technical, modern and innovation commitment doesn’t stop at Grivel Aberturas. The company, a leader in the field in Rio Tercero and the region, acquired a center for cutting and machining PVC profiles for assembling doors and windows with this material.
It is a fully automatic robotic machine with Kaban technology that adds accuracy, quality and speed to work.
Before considering the benefits of this process, Edgar and Pablo Grivel highlighted the trajectory of Grivel Aberturas.
“We have been serving the city for 38 years. We began to commercialize the standard opening; Then aluminum openings, with a model carpentry in the field, and then we entered the PVC line”, stresses Edgar Griwell.
It’s growth, what’s coming and what the market demands. PVC openings require almost no maintenance and come in a variety of finishes, including imitation wood with a very high quality finish, which in turn allows for efficient thermal and acoustic insulation.
This is how Grivel Aberturas bets on the city and region with the assembly of a machining center for the manufacture of PVC openings. “It gives us agility, completeness, and speed in delivery,” he says.
The machine is fully robotic and works with complex software that allows it to be programmed according to the requirements of the project, creating tailor-made openings based on architectural considerations. “We always bet on the new in the opening.”
The cutting and machining center is made up of a machine of Turkish origin. This incorporation is “a huge step forward, especially considering that we started with the inauguration of PVC two years ago. We have received great response from the market and helped achieve this technology”, Pablo Grivel it is said.
The automatic equipment considers the main processes for the manufacture of PVC openings: the realization of mechanized ventilation, the discharge and perforation of water and pointing drafts for fittings and locks. And the purpose of the cut is to prepare a length of profile for welding by thermofusion.
The machining center has a robotic system for cutting, drilling and inserting PVC profiles. It is 14 meters tall and runs on sophisticated software
The machine has three disc saws that cut profiles at 90 and 45 degrees. “The architectural project is not standard, but tailored and oversized. This machine allows us to do this type of work, tailored and adjusted to the needs of each client”, says Edgar Griwell.
The line of PVC profiles has a wide variety of colors. “This gives us a huge advantage on maintenance. It practically does not require maintenance. It is completely durable and has the great advantage of being airtight with respect to noise and thermal insulation, both inside and out, ”Griwell it is said.
A central explanation made by Grievel is that the inclusion of this technology does not mean a reduction in jobs. quite the contrary. “Grival has a staff of 23 people who are part of the team. And according to our estimates, as we have more production due to higher machine capacity, we are analyzing to take on more personnel”, underlines Pablo Grivel.
The new tools consider work with a variety of measures and are adapted to the architect’s project according to the typology. Once the software is programmed, the type and quantity of profiles are required to machine the product.
In this framework, Grivel thanks the “great confidence” provided by the Technoperphiles company as a supplier of the product, and Kaban, with whose support Grivel introduced the 14-metre-long machine.
