Italian technology machine tools
IMT Intermato represents the best of the Made in Italy in the turning sector. Established in 1983 at Crosio della Valle, in Varese province, and located on an area that presently covers about 15,000 square metres, IMT Intermato has become a reference partner for the design and implementation of high speed CNC vertical lathes for the turning of metals, both small-size models mainly intended for the automotive industry and big-size lathes able to perform machining up to seven metres of diameter. In 1996 they implement the first automatic line for machining light alloy wheels, while in 2004 they overcome the threshold of one thousand machines installed, with a production of about one hundred machines per year. In 2005 they install the first automatic volume-manufacturing line for the machining of pistons in the automotive sector, In 2006 the products of the “Standard Line” VL range make their debut and finally in 2007 IMT-Procast Line was born, thus widening the range of turning centres up to over seven metres of turning diameter.
Today IMT Intermato is the main Italian manufacturer of CNC vertical turning, drilling and milling centres for light wheels for cars, motorbikes, industrial vehicles and for the aeronautical sector, too. The first target was the starting up of a widespread presence in Europe through direct branche with spare part magazine, after sale service and sale assistance, besides centres specialized in supplying the technical after sale service only. A presence today extended also to Asia, with subsidiaries in Shanghai, Indonesia, Korea, Singapore and China, thanks to the distributor Shanghai H&D Science Technology Trading Co. Ltd. in Shanghai for sales, after sale service and spare part warehouse. A development that has allowed IMT Intermato to become a leader in the field of machine tools specifically designed for machining aluminium wheels for cars, whose production exclusively takes place in Italy, a credit recognized on a world scale.
The production by IMT Intermato is subdivided into three main competence sectors. The first is represented by the vertical lathes of the WN series, mainly dedicated to the machining of light alloy wheels for automotive applications, for over twenty-five years the reference machines in the world for the machining of light alloy wheels. The lathes of the W series, manufactured in several hundred units mainly in the fouraxis palletized version, have given birth to the new generation of WN lathes with a wide range of machines for the sectors of wheels for motorcycles and for industrial vehicles.
