CAG, a Chinese company specialized in the production and supply of fasteners in the aerospace field, is among the most quoted in the domestic market.

 

Founded in 2009, CAG has experienced a strong expansion right from the start and today is one of the leading suppliers in China, Germany and United States.

The company employs 40 people and boasts a state-of-the-art plant within which special products are developed for an extremely selective sector.

«The first meeting with Carlo Salvi took place in 2010 when the need arose to expand our business by installing a new line for parts’ heading.

Among the many possible suppliers, we have chosen Carlo Salvi for several reasons: its good reputation in the aerospace field and the use of its headers by the main manufacturers of fasteners in the world, certainly play a key role. Our partners, moreover, expressed interest in this technology right from the start, giving even more reasons for the final decision. 

After installing the first header, the results in terms of speed and efficiency were not long in coming, so much so that our collaboration has continued until today» comments Mr. Xu, President of CAG.

 

Actually, 3 double-stroke headers are installed at CAG’s plant, working on average 8-10 shifts a week.

 

The first machine was installed with the aim of opening the doors to a market that requires increasingly resistant, customized and well-made parts. Subsequent investments, on the other hand, made it possible to increase the company's production capacity.

«The Carlo Salvi headers have allowed us to work faster, always aiming at the quality of the finished product.

Many of our parts are used immediately after heading, others subjected to heat treatments and surface coatings.

The excellent performance of the first machine was combined with an excellent service, to say the least: this is why we decided to continue our collaboration with Carlo Salvi » says Mr. Xu, adding. «What we appreciate most about these heading machines is certainly the speed: a production of 400 parts per minute offers considerable advantages.

The possibility of preparing the tools outside the machine for the next job allows a to save time and costs. The settings are fast and simple and it is possible to recall values previously stored, automatically positioning K.O. pins and cut-off length. Last but not least, we appreciate the safety devices the machines are equipped with, to protect our operators».

 

«The partnership with CAG is certainly strategic for us, both for the role that the company plays in the aerospace field and for the close human relationship that has been established between the two work teams. Faced with this opportunity, we can only consider ourselves lucky. Even though the two factories are physically distant, we feel very close in the daily collaboration. The digital tools we rely on favor interaction and allow us to be present "on site" even if 8,000 km away», states Germano Pandiani C.O.O. by Carlo Salvi.

 

Strong propensity for growth and desire for innovation and expansion: these are the cornerstones that allow the two companies to progress together in the same direction.

This project is considered a great success both from a business and a human point of view. In fact, it lets two teams of specialists to compare each other from different points of view, including from the cultural one, thanks to the precious support of Carlo Salvi's Chinese branch

«What we have in common with CAG are the high-quality standards that we wish to guarantee every day to all those who rely on our technology. We are sure that together we have built solid foundations for a fruitful collaboration over time» concludes Germano Pandiani.
