Production Processes and Procedures
l foto control de calidad

For all the projects, in VHICOA we apply standard production processes (changes can be implemented for special projects), which can be summarized as follows:

  • Issue of a Work Order: This contains a detailed job description, quality and testing requirements, surface preparation and painting requirements, list of specifications required by the customer, transportation, delivery and assembly requirements if necessary.
  • Procurement of Material: Issue of a bill of materials, including structural elements, plant, paints, auxiliary materials, electrodes, etc., along with the information to list the parts to be manufactured, emission of Purchase Orders to specialized suppliers, procurement in the case of foreign materials, estimated date of reception at the plant.
  • Execution Time: Scheduling all work to be executed within the contractual time, including material preparation, cutting, welding, pre-assembly, disassembly, surface preparation and painting, as well as the tests required in the project.
  • Workshop Drawings: VHICOA generates detailed work shop drawing including cutting templates, welding details, connections and perforations. When we do not use the computer controlled programs, we generate templates at a 1:1 scale.
  • Removal of surplus: In the process we use the dust collection system, in order to reduce the environmental impact.
  • Cutting of sheets to size: In VHICOA the sheets are cut with plasma, shear, or welding torch guided by rails. We do not use manual cutting, except in very in particular circumstances. If required the sheets are beveled by a mechanical process
