Vertical Integration- Multiple stages of the supply chain

Mifa is happy to take on the responsibility for the entire process when developing and producing aluminium and magnesium profiles, components and products. Our technology, knowledge, and experience enable us to produce highly complex profiles made of aluminium, magnesium, and other materials. 

Thanks to our combination of precision extrusion, machining, surface treatment, and assembly, we can reduce total production time. Since we produce the whole component, we also assume responsibility for the components we deliver. We have already supplied customers in different markets.

Coordination of extrusion, machining, and surface treatment

Over the years, we have developed to become an efficient processor of highly accurate and complex components for the different markets. This enables us to make significant improvements to components. The way in which we coordinate the extrusion process, processing, and surface treatment is a very important aspect in this regard. If the extrusion can be produced accurately from the start, we save considerable machining time. If you want maximum benefit of our experience and high level of expertise, you have to involve Mifa’s engineers at the earliest stage.

Ultimately, this results in a more efficient, high-quality and refined profile, component or product, which can usually be produced quicker and with lower costs.

Complete components for our customers

We write the software and make our own moulds for the CNC machines. Every profile is unique and often requires a specific processing technique, especially for visible surfaces. We therefore use CAD/CAM programs such as Solid Works, Solid Edge, and Unigraphics. Mifa makes life easier for its customers by delivering a complete component. This is why we have special techniques available in house for different markets. These techniques include assembling, bending, brushing, belt grinding, sealing, soldering, welding, and masking. 

Robot lines accelerate and improve work processes

Mifa has been investing in robotization for many years, with the first robot line constructed in 2008. The robots on the line load the machines and manoeuvre products. Everything is then measured fully automatically, and the products are placed on pallets. In 2020 we already have several robot lines for customers in various markets. The robot lines are fully designed and equipped by Mifa's R&D department.

The robot lines also provide valuable data that we can use to further refine our processes. Machines become self-correcting and automatically signal when a part needs to be replaced. All of this helps to further reduce the minimum error rate. We see a future in which customers’ enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are linked to Mifa's ERP system, so that Mifa automatically knows when customers need a new profile and can start production immediately.

Are you curious about our possibilities? Feel free to contact us. We hope to hear from you soon.
