Ecut is just Genesi.

Ecut is just Genesi.

These machines have been built for over thirty years and produced in thousands of copies. Someone has tried and tries to sell them in Italy, as they are, but WITHOUT SUCCESS, and in a short time stops.

For almost ten years Genesi has been offering Ecut.  The experience accumulated in field tests and trials, leads to continuous changes and additions that make Ecut different, unique, and finally suitable for the Italian and European market.

These modifications make it easier and more understandable to use, make the machines more efficient, and allow the processing of materials that machines of the same type cannot and cannot process.

Digital manuals, with dynamic 3D visualizations of the components, facilitate maintenance. Updated operating systems with regular licenses allow the networking, so remote assistance and, more importantly, in corporate network, remote control and also under remote control. Ecut is a 4.0 machine, and has the features to request the facilities of the 2017 budget law “Super amortization 250%”.

The knowledge acquired leads to an effective and direct pre- and post-sales service. All spare parts are available in Italy, even for machines sold years ago, and our technicians are able to intervene quickly, both by telephone and in remote assistance, both for faults and for suggestions on the use of the machines.

The continuous investments in research made by Baoma, a leading manufacturer in the sector, are the guarantee of an avant-garde product. The wide range of models in production gives the possibility to choose the most suitable model for the work to be carried out, or for the use to be made of it.

There is one model for production and one for tooling, a small model, and 2600 x 1600 models of working stroke.

In these 10 years Genesi has accumulated an experience that no one has in Italy. For this reason,

Ecut is just Genesis, if it’s not Ecut, it’s not the same thing.

Ecut in the living room

A love at first sight. It often happens with Ecut.
The young owner of this large company immediately understood the potential of Ecut. Having tried a demanding process at the Genesis laboratory, he ordered a machine. He assessed the punctuality of delivery times, the efficiency of installation and commissioning, and more importantly, the speed with which, under the guidance of Genesi’s technicians, his operators learned to use the machine and start producing.  In the space of three weeks, in view of the reduction in costs on machining operations previously carried out with removal machines, he ordered the second machine.

These parts could be machined by conventional machining.
The material, however, is a particularly difficult stainless steel. The very tight tolerances required, and the required unachievable milling finish, required grinding operations.
The part obtained with Ecut has tolerances well within the required values, the final roughness has avoided grinding.
No cost for tools, inserts, or special clamping equipment. In two placements the part is finished.
The cost is well below how milling could be achieved, and much lower than using conventional wire erosion.
The end customer was very satisfied. He paid a little less than usual, and the contractor who did the work earned a lot more than usual.

Tube processing is one of the areas where Ecut excels.
Not straight cuts, thin thicknesses, “cursed” materials, see wire erosion as the ideal solution.
But conventional wire erosion occurs in an immersion tank, which is often smaller than the length of the tubes. Moreover, washing “under pressure” is not very effective on a tube, and prohibitive on a series of tubes.
Ecut has no immersion tank, the cooling of the cut is obtained “by gravity”, and already ‘from the smallest machines’ has a cutting thickness of 500 mm.
The lack of the tank and the wide working strokes allow to mount more clamps, and to work “in pendulum”, obtaining an optimal productivity.
The completely burr-free cutting, especially in very thin thicknesses, makes Ecut a solution technologically, and economically irreplaceable.

Mr Alderighi’s company, Aldepack, is not a big company.
It is an excellence in the field of packaging machines, and exports all over the world.
The workshop is small in size (they have everything done outside). They take care of the design, and assembly. They have those few necessary machine tools, and every now and then they happened to do wire erosion workings, but it was always a pain. Costs “from molds”, delivery times never known, and often the work done not exactly as they wanted.
It’s unthinkable to buy one. For the high cost and never amortizable, and for the complexity of managing a wire erosion.
They asked Genesi to do some work, they saw the machine running, and Mr Alderighi, a mechanic for generations, “fell in love” with it.  The cost of purchase, the cost of operation, the simplicity of operation, have been the reason for the “fall in love”.
In the end, he bought it. They have changed the design of different pieces, simpler, more functional, more precise, (obtained after the heat treatments).
Spiritually, they sanctified her by putting a crown of light on it!

Ecut is just GENESI. If it’s not Ecut,… it’s not the same thing!

Teeth and keys

More and more gear manufacturers in recent years have purchased one or more Ecut.
Almost always the reason was to place side by side the cutters in order to be able to make larger sized keyways than those that could be made with the machines in their possession.
Even the smallest Ecut, in fact, the maximum cutting thickness is 500 mm.
But having an Ecut in the workshop changes the perspective from which to deal with processes that have always been performed in a certain way.
First of all, the execution of keyways! Obtaining them with Ecut costs less, much less than with a slotting machine. Because the precision to the cent, normal for Ecut for any thickness and width of quarry, costs much more with a stock. If you have to execute opposite seats, or more seats with variable angle, the simplicity with which they are obtained and the absolute precision make Ecut a “revolutionary” solution.
The next step is the execution of a broaching. If you do not have a broach for that profile, and the pieces to be made are few, obtaining it with Ecut proves incredibly economical. No broach to build, and immediate delivery of the pieces!
At this point we begin to discover that the tall piece with thin quarries is better suited to do with Ecut. And maybe even that pulley for toothed belts, those driving slots on large rings, those sectors of gear for a large diameter, or a particular rack ….

Location of the flash drive! We only need them for the keys, the high ones….
After not even a month, they are already making broaches, and some work that would never have been taken.

“Well! We used to make them out of stock. We have it, it doesn’t cost us anything anymore.”
But Ecut works alone. The geometry is perfect. Never that he pulls under or refuses. In the end it costs a lot, a lot less.

Not that easy, with that toothing ending in a joke. And then we didn’t have the creator, and buying him for those few pieces to make would have made the cost enormous. The customer was very happy, and we made a good profit.

These pieces were a real rotter. Almost 200 mm high, with those cables and those rounded edges it would have taken several shots. With Ecut, you only need one placement, one cut. Perfect geometry and tolerances.

Okay, just seat the thumb drive. But with Ecut’s 20 mm gears you can put 10 or 15 one on top of the other, and go, with a single placement you cut all of them. Perfect, precise, all the same. And since there is no bathtub, while it works you can place more….
