Power Generation - 2018 Seminar

Date: 18/10/2018 - 19/10/2018

Country: Italy

City: Cesena

October 18th – 19th in DAVI Auditorium, Italy...


For two days DAVI Auditorium hosted the most renowned companies involved in power generation fabricating process all over the world for the Power Generation 2018 Seminar. DAVI, HGG, PEMA, MESSER and PAMA, as co-organizers of the event, presented all their latest technical solutions with regards to the different fields of energy production.


Below you can find some of the topics that all participants had the chance to discuss during the event:

  • Automatic Cutting 3D system.
  • Most suitable Plate Rolling technology with heavy duty LIVE Rolling Demonstration.
  • Most advanced automation for the welding.
  • Technical details and availability of special heavy plates.
  • Latest solutions in boring-milling machines and machining centers.
  • Oxyfuel, Plasma, Laser Cutting machines for heavy plates.

The focal point of the two-day seminar was the live rolling demonstration, when a DAVI three roll variable axis plate roll (with a capacity of 13 ft x 8’’ 1/2) rolled a very thick plate into a perfect cylinder. Speed, accuracy and power are the features the DAVI machine evidently showed during the demonstration. The participants followed the rolling demonstration live and then could see the can perfectly rolled, with the shortest flat end.

The DAVI three roll variable axis plate roll has 3 motorized rolls, so that the rolls rotation is fully synchronized and the torque distribution is extremely efficient. The motorization prevents the plate from falling or slipping during the prebending operation and allows to position the plate very close to the tangent point in order to get the shortest flat end (this operation is very dangerous with mechanical brakes on the rolls).

Moreover, DAVI R&D studied an innovative solution for the design of the machine, that is completely symmetric. The side rolls’ length is the same on both sides and this, together with the symmetric load of hydraulic cylinder, guarantees a symmetric load on the machine frame. The symmetric design of the machine also means higher accuracy.

On both days, the attendees discovered the whole DAVI headquarter, from the workshop to the logistic center, from the technical department to the warehouse. The DNA of DAVI has been shown first of all through the production philosophy, that means a great number of plate and angle rolls always available for immediate delivery.

Participants could walk freely around DAVI workshop, taking a deep look at all the machines in stock: the giant plate rolls with capacity up to 12’’, a complete line for wind tower rolling and heavy duty angle rolls.

In addition to the interest sparkled by the technical presentations, the event received appreciation from all those who have attended because of the chance to share ideas and discuss with many companies operating in the same business. An international meeting gathering people involved in the field of power generation in the five continents was a unique opportunity for networking, exchanging comments, suggestions and contacts.
