Push Your Business Forward
In the past 30 years of activity, what stood out about Vega is our passion for creating high quality products, which in turn allows our customers to maximize their use of resources. This page will explain exactly what makes our company special, and get you passionate about it as much as we are.
Italy is famous all over the world for the exceptional quality of its artisanal products, be it fine wine, elite supercars or fancy leather shoes. Vega works with the same mindset as these manufacturers of first-class excellence.
Our headquarters is located near Milan, one of the European capitals for both technology and art. These two areas merge in Vega as one: the art of cylinder making.
The making of a good product begins with the right selection of materials; our R&D team analyses the requirements and searches for the ideal components for each cylinder. For example, the rod is made of hardened and tempered alloy steel, which is one of the most efficient choices due to the high tensile strength. The plating and finishing allow a longer durability of the seals.
Speaking of seals: Vega works with the biggest players in the game, such as Trelleborg® and Parker®. We choose the right components for the job, and these parts are wisely placed where they can be the most effective.
After selecting the best materials available for the job, the workshop is where the rest of the magic happens. From our production headquarters in Castellanza, Italy, our highly trained staff mills and creates the base components thanks to advanced, industrial tools such as CNC machines, and then puts them together by hand, making sure that every tolerance is respected and every part is in the right place.
Assembling a cylinder is often a one-man job, and our technicians consider each one of them as their own creation. This is how an artisan would approach his work, and it’s been making Vega an excellence in the plastic injection world.
Designing complex molds is not an easy task, and sometimes understanding which cylinder is right for the job is not so straightforward. Vega mantains a team of designers and engineers who know the answers to all questions our customers might have. They are always available, and will go over every detail of the project to give the best result. And if there is no product in the lineup which can satisfy all the needs, our team will design a custom solution, based on our know-how and abilities.
Even after our cylinders leave the factory, we still take great care of them. Support is just a phone call or e-mail away, and we’ll test, analyze, and then fix any issue, bringing our creations back to life. We also provide spare parts and clear repair instructions, for those who prefer doing everything in-house.
