In the industrial manufacturing chain, it is very important to start the quality control from the raw material. Because of this, CGM CIGIEMME S.p.A. is a leader company in inspection of square billets and round bars (pre-post lamination).

Solutions can be:

  • With contact: transversal magnetization is applied by a passage of current direct into the bars/billets. Longitudinal magnetization is achieved by a movable coil.

  • Without contact: both magnetizations take place without any passage of current through the bar/billet.

The first option ensures an excellent sensibility inspection of the longitudinal cracks, while the second one can boast a solid and lean layout. Both options can work with the equipment provided for in the finishing area. Pre-settings for dimensional change are automatic with data exchange through PLC with the customer’s automation system.

CGM CIGIEMME S.p.A. systems are CE marked and realized in accordance with the rules in force.

CGM at the Relay Milano Marathon 2023

On Sunday 2 April, the Relay Marathon 2023 took place, a race that places side by side the competitive event Milano Marathon: among the 3000 participating groups, one in particular should be celebrated in a big way for its achievements: CGM RUNNERS of course!

Anna, Ramona, Eugenio and Michele (the Team Building ideator) proved themselves through intense physical effort in order to end the 42 km Marathon in 4 hours and 33 minutes.

Good vibrations were the key to support the No Profit Charity Associations, to which the registration quotes were devolved: essentially, it was a real donation to one of the many projects that joined the event.

Given that CGM has been involved for 65 years in quality and common safety, our company is well aware of the importance of solidarity events and is extremely proud to have contributed to the income of more than 900,000 euros.

The Dynamo Camp Foundation is the No Profit Organization on which CGM has given support. The Dynamo Camp has been committed for years to offering specific Recreational Therapy programs free of charge to children and teenagers suffering from chronic diseases – in therapy or in the post-hospitalization period – to restore their self-confidence and own abilities, while improving the life quality of their families. What a good choice for us!

Congratulations guys! Your effort has certainly brought a smile to children in need and this is undoubtedly the greatest reward. Good job!

But don’t relax too much: the 2024 Marathon is coming!
