The steel

Characteristics of steel cookware series Le Pentole

  • The production method of the cylindrical part made by cold rolling.
  • Triple bottom stainless steel-aluminium-stainless with differentiated thickness for better heat distribution and maximum energy savings.
  • Edges resistant to deformation up to 100 kg of pressure.
  • Covers a semi-dome vapor-stop which allow the cooling of the steam and prevent water from entering or escaping into the pot.

Manufacture of cutlery and tableware

Manufacture of cutlery
The company buys steel from steel mills that provide it in coils or plates (sheets) from 1x3 meters in thickness from 0.8 to 4 mm. For cold work (tableware and cutlery) or round bars of different diameters for the hot working of knives. For the production of cutlery (spoons and forks ) is used AISI 304 stainless steel with a percentage of 18% chromium and 10% nickel.
The process is called cold because all the plastic deformation, ie, the stretching of materials are carried out without heating up the "piece". Mori Italian Factory uses for cutlery plates 2 to 4 mm thick.
Is guessed that the thickness higher (for example cutlery Ella Geo and 4 mm) gives more value to the object, and because the processing is more complex, and because the weight and, consequently, the cost of the raw material greatly increase the benefit of aesthetics and durability.
For this reason, we recommend that you always check the thickness of the cutlery: remember that your customers!

Production cycle of cold work of cutlery (except knives) from sheet or coil:

  • blanking developments, namely the workpiece contour
  • rolling, to thin the cup spoon or plug fork
  • trenching cup spoon or fork plug
  • degreasing, to remove oils shearing
  • coining, to give the shape and the final design
  • polishing, made with the use of abrasive pastes
  • washing, to remove the abrasive pastes used in polishing
  • any browned

Processing of tableware
Is used in stainless steel 18/10 (304) slabs of thickness ranging from 0.8 to 1.2 mm, Ordered by specifying the steelworks use "for tableware" because the plates must have a surface free from pinholes and other aesthetic defects.
All of the plastic deformation in order to obtain the desired shapes are performed in the cold, by interposing, between the molds and sheets to print, a thin film of lubricant to prevent scratches on surfaces.

Production cycle of tableware, for example the tray model Bombè:

  • cut the sheet into squares
  • deep drawing, to give the depth of the object (so many drawings according to the depth of the piece, for the tray Bombè it takes 2 drawings)
  • shearing of development, ie the workpiece contour
  • degreasing, to remove oils shearing
  • polishing
  • washing
  • any browned

A curiosity: the steel AISI 304 18/10 is not attracted by the magnet, while the AISI 420 18/C is magnetized to try it to believe it!

Manufacture of steel cookware series Le pentole

Is used stainless steel 18/10 (304), in discs with thickness of 1.5 mm. Specific for deep drawing, to the body of the pot, aluminum discs with a thickness of 3 mm for the bottom and stainless steel 18/C (AISI 430) for the base covering.
All plastic deformations to obtain the cylindrical body of the pot, are performed, as well as for the tableware, cold, exercising a static pressure and interposing between the molds and the discs to print a thin film of lubricant to avoid scratches on the surface.

Production cycle:

  • drawing to give depth to the body pan
  • rolling with lathe plate to stretch the body pan to the desired height
  • calibration of the pot body to create a uniform step below the rim and be able to give at the time of the cleaning effect bright and mat
  • drawing board to create the edge of the pot
  • trimming and edging to give roundness and uniformity to the edge
  • degreasing, to remove oils processing
  • brazing to create the triple bottom of the pot. It consists in the aluminum disc under the body pan and encapsulate it with the base covering by brazing
  • body polishing pot
  • welding of stainless steel handles 18/10
  • washing

A curiosity: The fund stainless steel 18/C (AISI 430) means that the pots can also be used with induction hobs.

Manufacture of non-stick aluminum cookware Mixer Plus collection

It is used specifically for aluminum to be coated with non-stick cookware discs or plates with a thickness of 3.5 mm, suitable for contact with food.
Even for the aluminum cookware, all plastic deformations occur at cold and interposing between the molds and the discs to print a thin film of lubricant to avoid scratches on the surface.

Production cycle:

  • drawing, to give depth to the body pan
  • trimming, to make uniform the edge pot
  • pickling, to remove any oil residue from processing
  • grinding, to make the rough surface of the pot so as to ensure a better adhesion of the non-stick material
  • application of non-stick material
  • grinding of the bottom to make it non-slip
  • riveting handles, stainless steel 18/10, to the pot
