CUSTOMIZED SERVICES FOR SANITARY FITTINGS MANUFACTURES
For 15 years SOSITALIA SRL offers a customized service based on the specific commercial needs of faucet manufacturers that involve design, prototyping, production, assembly and testing of bathroom and kitchen faucets within its facilities in Italy, using the best source supply in the world.
With the use of the LASER PRINTING MACHINE, it is possible to further customize the products with detail, trademarks and logos.
MACHINERY AND TESTING
The products are subjected to testing for:
- functional test
- water flow test
- seal/leakage test
by certified machines based on the main international standards.
We have a hydraulic test bench that is able to carry out tests for:
flow rate, regulation, stability, response time, hysteresis, leak, seal, etc., in accordance with the most important international standards EN, NF, CSA, KIWA, UNI, ASME su:
– sanitary faucets
– single lever mixers,
– thermostatic mixers,
– push taps,
– thermostatic valves,
– shower groups and shower columns,
– shower hoses and accessories.
Specifically, the machine is equipped with:
– device for mechanical resistance tests according to EN 817.
– device for automatic production test for thermostatic faucets.
– station for static pressure tests and water hammer tests for faucets.
– station for static pressure tests and water hammer tests for flexible hoses.
– hydraulic system for measuring pressure peak.
– automatic software for flow rate tests according to standards NF e EN.
– manual tests in static pressure.
– endurance test device for single-lever mixers.
– endurance test device for swivel spouts.
– endurance test device ceramic disc and traditional headparts.
– endurance test device diverters, showers and handshowers.
– endurance test device thermostatic mixers
We have a second test bench built to EN 274-2 Standards and NF 077 standard doc.9 cap.4.9. consisting of two test stations side by side to perform flow, leakage and endurance tests on:
– waste drain.
– waste drain with siphon.
– Flat shower waste drain for shower trays.
– Bottle traps.
– Overflow drains.
– “Pop-up” waste drain device.
We have machinery to verify the material resistance and the effectiveness of the surface coatings that we perform in our laboratories through accelerated saline-acetic corrosion tests (ASS Acetic Salt Spray).
In addition, we have a STRESS CRACKING plant (season cracking) to verify the presence of residual stress in the brass (bodies, spouts).
The laboratory machinery is completed by a Mitutoyo Measuring Projector, a Granite Surface Plate, a Mitutoyo Digital Height Gauge, a microscope and a roughness detector.
We also have machinery for the assembly and packaging of some components such as D.18 wastes and drains.
FROM LEAN PRODUCTION TO FACTORY 4.0
From LAB to FAB
The evolution of the Lean Production organizational system is enhanced by the new technologies of the Industry 4.0. There are 9 enabling technologies of Industry 4.0 and they are part of the SOSITALIA SRL corporate culture: Additive Manufacturing, Cybersecurity, Cloud, Robots, Simulation, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, System Integration, Big Data.
In SOSITALIA SRL every aspect of research and development, control and distribution of products is managed with the most advanced technologies, always looking for improvements in every process.
The fundamental point of the Factory 4.0 project is the start of the study for the construction of sanitary fittings using the METAL 3D PRINTING technology. The study called “FROM LAB TO FAB” (FROM LABORATORY TO PRODUCTION) follows the evolution of the technology of the production process of Metal Additive Manufacturing.
