\ TECHNOLOGY

Everything that comes with being pioneers in EDM, more than 65 years of experience and our commitment to developing our own technology, have enabled us to always provide you with the perfect and most profitable solution for your project. Our secret: combining the expertise of our two key departments; applications and R&D&i.

ONA is technological capacity.

\ DEPARTMENT OF APPLICATIONS

This is the department in charge of solving the challenges, tests and doubts our customers bring to us.

This is the best way to be in continuous contact with both the customer’s needs and the market’s requirements. The Department of Applications is the company’s technical nexus with the exterior, enabling us to be up to date with what’s going on in the industrial sector. A team formed by 7 technicians with more than 100 years of combined experience in EDM that exemplifies ONA’s skill. 

\ DEPARTMENT OF R&D&i

Research is key for the continuous improvement of our products. Our R&D&i department is focused on the development of our own technology, with the aim of increasing the capacity of our machines, improving their functionalities and anticipating our customers’ needs. We also collaborate with different Technological Research Centres and Universities around the world (ILT-Frauhofer and WZL-Aachen in Germany and Tekniker, Tecnalia, Ideko, Higher Technical School of Engineers in Bilbao, Spain), and participate in European Research and Development projects (PROSECO, SAPHIRE). A team formed by 25 people; multidisciplinary, responsive and with initiative, representing ONA’s knowledge.

“The great complexity of our moulds called for cutting-edge EDM technology to meet our highly stringent requirements” 

Managing Director of Bukuma Mirko Schnur (Germany)

\ PROFITABILITY

Yes, we give you the solution you need, but we strive to also make it the most profitable solution. Your success and long-term profitability is the cornerstone of each one of our proposals; offering you the most reliable solution with the highest profitability.

ONA optimises your investment.

\ INCREASED PROFITABILITY THROUGH SAVINGS IN ELECTRODES

The new smart generator optimises the erosion process and adapts it to the discharge conditions of each moment. In addition, it catalogues each spark according to its quality, eliminating those that do not facilitate perfect machining. This translates into big improvements in productivity, and therefore into success for our customers.

\ AN AMPLIFIED SUCCESS

Speaker grills are one of the most complex parts to manufacture in the mould sector. At ONA, thanks to our new digital generator we have achieved the finish and roughness required for these types of parts, and we have done so reducing their production time by half in comparison to what other machines on the market offer.

\ LESS TIME, MORE PRODUCTIVITY

Erosion work on impellers can take up to 800 hours, but thanks to the power of our CNC and the higher performance of our generators compared to what other competitors offer, we manage to reduce times by 20%. Which results in unprecedented economic savings for the producers of these types of parts.
