COMPANY

ABOUT US

Lanza Metallwaren was founded in 1970 by Wolfgang Lanza, and right up to the present day has maintained its entrepreneurial momentum to become one of the leading suppliers of precision turned parts. The basis of success is the steadfast search and discovery of new solutions for new challenges. Today, the still growing family business has 60 employees and 5,000 square meters of production space.

The Lanza company was founded as a trading company. Based on the trade in semi-finished metal products and through advice on quality and excellent customer service, a durable business partnership evolved over the years with major customers, who were, so to speak, producers of precision turned parts. The demise of individual metal processing operations prompted the Lanza company to contact the end customers directly in order to secure the market through the processing of the traded products into turned parts. The resulting additional trade in turned parts gave rise to the idea at the end of the 1970s, to buy up the existing machinery and to pick up the staff and customer base from specialist companies going into liquidation, resulting in the development of a small but expandable production enterprise.A further foundation stone was laid in the late 1980s, with the start of the next generation in the family business and the expansion of the machine stock with CNC supported, and fully CNC controlled systems.With the use of single and multi-spindle automatic lathes, the demand from well known turned parts user was covered in the home and export market.The expansion of in-house tooling production through the use of the most technically advanced level of wire EDM and profile grinding reduced the production lead time for mould tooling, for the manufacture of complex profiles and sophisticated surfaces, by an order of magnitude.Due to our on-time deliveries and quality, acclaimed by many awards from customers, we also became an effective partner in the development of new products.Today, the experience of well trained skilled staff is readily received amongst our customer base.Due to the upturn in business in recent years, we at Lanza Metallwerke have achieved a critical level which in figures amounts to an incoming volume of 4,500 tonnes per year. Our skill lies not just in the wide range of manufacturing capability in the turned parts sector, but is reflected primarily in the qualitative result of mass-produced precision turned parts.

ACTIVE FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT

We have also optimised our business processes from an environmental perspective. The main focus is on primary measures, whereby we already avoid polluting factors at the source of their creation. This refers in part to the design of our products with materials, which in the meanwhile allow for almost complete recycling. Secondly, we are working to improve the emission balance of our production processes. In order to integrate the goals of emission prevention and resource conservation in the company operations, we are guided by an environmental management system in accordance with the internationally recognized DIN EN ISO 14001 standard. The sense of responsibility towards mankind and nature has led to the early integration of environmental protection in our thoughts and actions. With the introduction of a comprehensive environmental strategy already in 1991, we laid the foundation for active protection of the environment as an essential component of our corporate management. In our facilities, all waste materials are prepared for the recycling process. Swarf and solid waste are provided to metal works, for reprocessing into semi-finished products, free from cutting fluid coolant residues. Coolant fluids are processed and fed to the machining process again. Exhaust air is recycled, and coolant residues from oil mist filter systems are continuously fed back to the coolant storage. Warm air is discharged or recycled for heating. As part of our responsibility to ourselves and future generations, a comprehensive environmental management system is standard practice. It is our objective, with our products and the standards for our production process, to ensure savings in raw materials and energy in order to protect mankind, the environment and the climate.

- Environmental protection as an integral part of production
- Environmental viability for cost savings for our customers
- 100% recycling of waste material
- Use of exhaust and engine waste heat
- Coolant treatment and recycling
- CFC free and CHC free solvents for cleaning the parts

QUALITY

"Quality is no coincidence. Intelligence and the will to improve are part of it."

INDUSTRY REQUIREMENTS

Depending on the industry requirements, the business areas of Lanza are geared up to the appropriate quality standards. Our quality management system has been installed since 1994 and is certified according to DIN ISO 9001: 2008. We consider customer satisfaction and trust as the main prerequisites for a stable business development. Therefore, we attribute a special meaning to quality assurance in all operational processes. Through computer-based warehouse logistics we organize the traceability of the materials used. Complete transparency of all production data through BDE and corresponding evaluation software allows immediate intervention in case of deviations from the plan. Our core processes are robust and mature, and always "state-of-the-art" due to continuous improvement, which is substantially cultivated and lived at all levels.

- Sample test reports according to VDA, PPAP

- Acceptance test according to EN10204 / 3.1.B. for semi-finished products

- Layer thickness and hardness records for surface treated parts

- Cleaning according to the cleanliness requirements of VDA19

- Production integrated quality management system with extensive equipment (including, FMEA, SPC, APQP)
- Programmable, optical profile measurement
- Werth 3D measurement system
- Shape tester for measuring geometric dimensions and tolerances

We ensure compliance with standards and regulations through careful development and monitoring of production processes. In internal processes, we focus on a comprehensive quality approach, which means that every employee is responsible for the quality of their output. The quality principles applicable to all employees are anchored in the corporate philosophy.

- Customer satisfaction comes first.
- The quality of the products is determined by the needs of customers.

Through a variety of supplier evaluations, we can demonstrate an extraordinary level of performance. For many years, deliveries free of complaints have been a defining feature of our products. Our customers regularly confirm that cost savings are clearly recognizable in incoming goods inspection and complaints handling through our fault-free quality.

CERTIFIED

A certificate confirms the presence of management but not the quality of a product by a long way! However, the numerous client awards we have received confirm to us the fulfilment of quality requirements, deadlines, pricing and environmental awareness. In addition to flexibility and commitment, product quality is one of the essential pillars of our success. For this purpose, we set the highest quality standards in our work and continually carry out checks using the latest measurement and control technology. To meet the high quality requirements of production accurately and at all times, we rely on modern equipment. The quality control of our products is subject to the strict requirements of the automotive industry, from the inspection planning to the initial sample testing and on to statistical process control. The demand-based manual or mechanical final test ensures the proper delivery quality of our products with the objective of delivering: Zero Defects. Lanza is known for its reliability over and beyond production. This reliability applies to timely delivery of the highest quality, reliable delivery and exceptional flexibility in terms of specific customer requirements.
