Teseo supplied its modular piping systems HBS50 and AP20 to VMC to implement the distribution of compressed air for the operation of machine tools, screwing equipment on assembly lines and test benches.
The Italian company Teseo srl, specialized in the design and production of compressed air distribution systems, vacuum, nitrogen and other pressurized fluids, has supplied its compressed air distribution systems HBS50 and AP20 to the Creazzo (Vicenza, Italy) based company VMC, which designs and manufactures valves and pumping units for screw compressors; VMC is a global leader in components for screw compressors, as a result of its advanced design, quality strategies, customization, pre- and post-sales service.
With Teseo’s piping, VMC has implemented a pneumatic system for the distribution of compressed air for the operation of machine tools, screwing equipment on assembly lines and test benches. The system currently operates at a pressure of 9.5 bar, with a 3% pressure drop at the furthest delivery point (0.2 bar approximately).
«Since the beginning of its business, VMC has adopted Teseo’s solutions for its pneumatic lines – explains Virgilio Mietto, founder and president of VMC -. For two subsequent expansions of the production site, the first one thirteen years ago, and the second one in 2013, we selected again Teseo’s new compressed air distribution lines, as their solutions have proved to be efficient and reliable over time».
Flexibility and easy line assembly
Teseo’s systems were selected by VMC for the advantages that these solutions can offer. «A wide range of products for all kinds of requirements, great flexibility and easy line assembly, which translate into a dramatic reduction of installation times, were the key factors for our decision – continues Virgilio Mietto -. A dynamic and flexible organization like VMC needs very convenient and versatile solutions: Teseo systems perfectly match these requirements and have always responded to our needs».
The versatility of Teseo’s systems revolves around the fact that pipe installation does not require conventional threading or welding operations, as all parts can be joined by means of special clamping brackets, locked with Allen screws. This innovative concept, combined with the square profile of the extruded aluminum bars, makes it easy and quick to assemble and modify any distribution system, using simple tools such as Allen screwdrivers. All accessories, such as outlet ports or drop columns, can be installed in few minutes, keeping the system under pressure.
Compared to traditional zinc-plated iron, copper and plastic pipes, Teseo’s extruded aluminum piping provides several benefits in addition to quick installation, mounting and modification: light weight, lack of rust and corrosion, emission of “clean” air, reduction of maintenance labor costs, heavy reduction of production downtime and air leaks.
Teseo srl was founded in 1988 and immediately emerged as a pioneering, innovative and creative company. In the early ‘90s, Teseo was the first company worldwide to develop a modular system of aluminum profiles for the distribution of compressed air. Today, these systems have set a reference at international level for fluid power distribution such as compressed air and vacuum, both in small handicraft workshops and the big industry. Teseo is a dynamic and constantly developing company, both in terms of market presence and for its capacity to offer innovative, leading-edge solutions, as a result of the constant commitment and work by the internal R&D laboratory. With this approach, the modular piping by Teseo, the first and the original in its category, has been constantly developed, enhanced and modernized for two decades.
The modular piping systems by Teseo are installed in the most different fields, with prestigious references in the automotive, textile, mechanical and automation industries. Besides the Italian headquarters in Desenzano del Garda, Teseo srl has five subsidiaries: Teseo Iberica, Teseo Nederland, Teseo UK, Teseo Deutschland and the new North American branch office Teseo Canada.
Teseo’s distribution systems are manufactured in compliance with the safety requirements of the applicable standards and have obtained several product certifications. Besides manufacturing and selling its products, Teseo supports partners and customers for plant design and dimensioning, the study of tailored solutions for machinery and production lines, consulting on standards, training of installers and engineers, supervision during installation and tests.
