Italian saw blade manufacturer puts its trust in VOLLMER 2019-05-27

to overview

Steep mountain passes and narrow, winding roads – despite a difficult journey, the first VOLLMER sharpening machine found its way through the Northern Italian Alps more than 25 years ago. Its destination was the saw blade manufacturer Moreschi in the small town of Vilminore di Scalve. A strong partnership has linked the two companies since then. Moreschi relies on VOLLMER's grinding machines from the CHD, CHF and CM model series for sharpening carbide-tipped circular saws with precision and Loroch machines (from the KSC-710 model serie) for sharpening HSS circular saws.

Brothers Marco and Luciano Moreschi founded Moreschi in 1987 in the Alpine town of Vilminore di Scalve. Starting out as a grinding centre for small workshops, the company soon began specialising in the production of custom-made circular and band saw blades. Moreschi now employs more than 40 members of staff and supplies its products to customers in Italy and abroad. The saw blade manufacturer also runs a grinding centre in Poland.

Founded on family and reliable partners
Despite its growth and international focus, tradition and family play a major part in the company. Moreschi shares close ties with its home in the Bergamasque Alps, where it was founded. And even the second generation of the family is already involved in the business, with Marco Moreschi's son Mattia and daughter Gloria Moreschi, also working for the family-run company.

"For us, what matters is not only continuing our family tradition; it is also essential to have reliable partners so that we can offer our customers the best saw blades," explains Marco Moreschi, CEO of Moreschi Srl. "This is why we have been relying on the grinding machines from Biberach since 1991. We are currently using more than 15 VOLLMER and Loroch machines at our company."

VOLLMER precision – from small to large
Moreschi mainly uses grinding machines from the CHD, CHF and CM model series. They allow for precise sharpening without the saw blades having to be clamped in more than one position and make it possible to machine a range of saw blades with different diameters and tooth geometries. What particularly impresses staff is how efficient and simple the machines are to use, as well as the reliability they offer.

Eight CNC-controlled axes and measuring equipment make the CHD 270 from the Swabian sharpening specialist ideal for automatically machining carbide-tipped circular saw blades with an outer diameter of between 80 and 840 millimetres. Thanks to a fixed grinding unit and its solid structure, the CM 300 grinding machine achieves outstanding precision for circular saw blades with a diameter of between 200 and 1440 millimetres. When it comes to extremely large dimensions, right up to circular saw blades with a diameter of 2200 millimetres, Moreschi uses VOLLMER's CHM and CHMF 400 grinding machines. These two models, with five CNC axes each, grind the tooth face and tooth top of the saw teeth, as well as their sides.

Custom-made saw blades for a wide range of applications
Moreschi's international customer base includes numerous companies from the steel and metal alloy industry, meaning that the saw blades are used for saws produced by large manufacturers, as well as in saw mills. Since customer requirements can differ greatly, Moreschi provides advice that is tailored to each individual customer and custom-produces saw blades. These saw blades machine materials which require precision and vary in their hardness and size, including steel and metal alloys, as well as wood, plastics and composite materials. To ensure a high standard of quality, Moreschi performs several trials before the final product reaches the customer. The company is also always working on further developing its products and technologies to find ideal solutions for its customers' various application areas. Moreschi does this by exchanging knowledge and ideas with Italian universities.

"Medium-sized manufacturers of saw blades, such as Moreschi, help their customers by providing consultation, production and maintenance services, and for this they require automated sharpening machines which offer high precision while being easy to use, even for small quantities," states Dr Stefan Brand, CEO of the VOLLMER Group. "The fact that Moreschi puts its trust in VOLLMER makes us proud and we are hopeful that our sharpening machines from Biberach will continue to find their way to Vilminore di Scalve in future."
