Gurelan, S.A. has an indoor surface are of 3.800 m² distributed between the Foundry, Secondary Operations, Shipments, Mechanical Workshop and Offices (Technical, Quality and Administrative)
We have 14 machines, all of them are hot chamber and range from 20 tons to 220 tons, all with loaders. Machines above 50 tons have a robot for extracting the shot and with the cutting machine integrated. This allows us to produce the parts under optimal machine conditions, in accordance with the weight, dimension and number of cavities, as competitively as possibley.
Depending on the type of part, we employ centralized vacuum equipment or peripheral auxiliary equipment such as atemperators to heat or cool the die etc.
Secondary Operations Section
In this department, we finish those parts that need subsequent processes, such as deflashing or shot-blasting, with automated equipment of our own design tailored to these operations.
Gurelan puts the latest generation shot-blasting machines at the disposal of our customers, with which we obtain high quality finishes.
Also, for the requested part finish, such as a paint or galvanic coating, we have different type of machines, to provide the requested surface on the zamak parts.
In this section we have: an automated ratating drum installation for separating and trimming, a belt sander, Tribo machines and different types of shot blasting machines.
Our warehouse has a weight balance with automatic parts counter, also we have an automatic packaging pallet system and we report all the dates on our ERP in real time.
We have an exclusive department to produce and maintain the molds and the cutting tools. The design and production of the tools are integrated in our facility, supported by our specialized technicians From the full fill design of the tool, the setting and polishing operations, they are all carried out in our facility.
To be able to give this support, we have the following equipment: milling machine CNC, CNC lathe, spark erosion machine CNC, flat surface grinding machine, welding equipment TIG, Electric furnace for treatments, ultrasound cleaning equipment, among others
Our technical office has 82 years of experience where our know-how, has been passed down from generation to generation. During these years, thousands of moulds, have been produced with different technologies , parts from a few grams up to several kilograms , from a few centimetres to nearly a metre long.
Addressing so many different kinds of problems has improved our internal know-how for finding solutions to different issues, and this allows us to offer the utmost guarantee to the highest expectations of all our customers.
In parallel with our own know-how, we use the following Software to develop and produce the mould, in accordance with the CAD-CAM philosophy. For the CAD we use Solidworks, Solid edge and Power SHAPE and for the CAM: PowerMILL.
We are specialists in the design and production of moulds for galvanic coated finished parts, where the highest die cast quality is required, to ensure a perfect full fill of the parts without the typical defects such as colds areas in the surface of the parts, bite erosions, blisters, etc.
