Brothers Marco and Luciano Moreschi founded Moreschi in 1987 in the Alpine town of Vilminore di Scalve. Starting out as a grinding centre for small workshops, the company soon began specialising in the production of custom-made circular-saw blades and band-saw blades.
Moreschi now employs more than 40 people and supplies its products to customers in Italy and beyond. The company also runs a grinding centre in Poland.
Despite its growth and international focus, tradition and family play a major part in the company’s success.
CEO Marco Moreschi said: “For us, what matters is not only continuing our family tradition but also having reliable partners, so we can offer our customers the best saw blades available.”
Moreschi has been using grinding machines from Biberach-based Vollmer (www.vollmer-group.com
) since 1991, and it currently has more than 15 Vollmer and Loroch machines.
The Italian saw blade manufacturer mainly uses grinding machines from the CHD, CHF and CM model series, which allow for precise sharpening without the saw blades having to be clamped in more than one position.
This makes it possible to machine a wide range of blades with different diameters and tooth geometries.
Eight CNC axes and measuring equipment allow the CHD 270 to automatically machine carbide-tipped circular saw blades with an outer diameter of 80-840mm, while the CM 300 accommodates blades with diameters from 200 to 1,440mm.
For its largest circular saw blades (diameters up to 2,200mm), Moreschi uses Vollmer’s CHM and CHMF 400 grinding machines.
These two models have five CNC axes and can grind the tooth face and tooth top, as well as the sides of the teeth.
Stefan Brand, CEO of the Vollmer Group (www.vollmer-group.com
), which has a UK subsidiary in Nottingham, said: “Medium-size manufacturers of saw blades, such as Moreschi, help their customers by providing consultation, production and maintenance services.
"For this, they require automated sharpening machines that offer high precision while being easy to use, even for small quantities.
“The fact that Moreschi puts its trust in Vollmer makes us proud, and we are hopeful that our sharpening machines will continue to find their way to Vilminore di Scalve.”
