COMMENTS

The electric-upsetting process grants a limited stock and a continuous flow of fibers.
The advantage offered by Sapes is represented by the fact that we can supply a highly integrated production cycle which – starting from a raw bar – can provide a completely finished component ready to be assembled into the vehicle.
