The natural destination of CGS products is definitely the Bathroom, an ever-changing room, based on the growing comfort search that the market is clearly showing.
The range of the CGS articles includes 3 macro categories, bathtub wastes, shower wastes and basin wastes, each of them with a strong identity and a very high level of design and production quality.
The aesthetic side gives a strong character to the product: the chrome finishing is the most sold version, since it gives elegance and adaptability to the item, although there are dozens of different finishings, apart from the chrome one.
Functional efficiency first of all: this is the standard which has always overseen the design of a new model and its subsequent production. All this without neglecting the aesthetical components, which make each product the ideal accessory for the bathroom. We have been designing the best water technology for over forty years: each product bearing the CGS brand is studied with the choice of the most suitable material, shape and workmanship by people who love their job and therefore do not spare their eforts to obtain the best in terms of quality.
Strict quality controls are required to ensure reliability, safety and construction precision, as well as laboratory tests to verify their functionality and resistance: a skip-up plug, for example, undergoes a test of over 150,000 opening and closing cycles, in order to verify the reliability of the mechanism which must be fluid and soft even at the end of the test.
Furthermore, laboratory analyses are useful for obtaining the necessary certifications for the sale of the product in the various areas of the planet. But in CGS we go further: the orientation is in fact to guarantee the maximum efficiency of the product even when it is not specifically requested by the country of destination, since the company's commitment is to provide the market with the best technology for the water.
The thermoplastic moulding materials plays a fundamental role in the world of drainage systems. It’s already a while that CGS is active with a plastic moulding department, owning 8 presses, used according to the component to be produced.
The growing demand for articles and the introduction of new products and components in thermoplastic material has led to the realization of a project for an expansion of the plastic moulding department in order to increase the number of presses and components manufactured.
The department uses 10 types of polymers, deposited in special cells connected to dehumidification system capable of making them perfectly suitable for the transformation process. Thanks to new generation machinery, processing continues non-stop h/24 without being manned. Over 3 million components are produced per year, using 70 tons of polymers.
The company's production system has 9 transfer machines for automated turning operations and numerous manual stations to perform precision and detail operations.
These resources allow an average of 15,000 components every day, using approximately 510,000 kg of brass every year.
The precision of the result is guaranteed by the quality controls carried out by the turning operators who check constantly all the components produced, the respect of their characteristics and the relative dimensions. With over 30 daily inspections, we comply with a standard of quality and reliability which in CGS is the milestone of its business development and growth policy.
After the mechanical processing phase, all the components move on to the polishing department. In this area there are three types of processing: grinding, polishing and buffing. A fully automated workstation operates 4 types of different grain belts, which, with the help of a special abrasive paste in the form of emulsion and saponification, polish the piece through a process of removal and micro abrasion.
The wheel diameter, its speed, the choice of a soft or stiffer belt, the position of the wheels, are decisions up to the responsibility of the technicians who work in this phase of the process, making about 1,000,000 components per year.
For the drainage items, the surface treatments, especially the chrome plating, represent a key step of the production process, where is an essential to make a product with an impeccable, lasting shiny and glossy appearance.
For this reason, CGS features a carousel chrome plating plant that guarantees a considerable production of components thanks to the total automation of the process.
A special attention to the health of the workers is essential: the frames are automatically loaded into the chrome plating bath, therefore operations on the bath side are not required. In equal measure CGS cares about the environment: no waste is discharged but is disposed through authorized parties.
The department can process over 28,000 components a day, returning products with a shiny and brilliant appearance. That’s thanks to the adoption of a process that involves the average deposit of 12.0 µm of nickel and a subsequent average layer of 0, 30 µm of chromium; details that pay of widely, giving rise to products whose quality level is immediately perceptible by respecting the highest standards required by international regulations.
2,500,000 items per year assembled by trained staff, 10 assembly lines, supported by a laser station for product marking. There are automated lines for the most complex items or items with the highest volume sale, while for the remainder the assembly is done manually by qualified operators. CGS manages numerous customizations requested by clients: type of personalized box, special label, different components compared to the BoM, all based on customer satisfaction.
We then move on to packaging: a manual process allows a final careful check. Everything has to match to the strict quality standards imposed by the company.
The packages are picked up from a dedicated warehouse that contains over 200,000 boxes of different shapes and sizes. Each package has its own assembly instructions and relative label. At the end of this process, the final products are stored in the warehouse, ready to be sent all over the world.
After assembly, testing and packaging, cartons and pallets equipped with label and delivery note are handled and stored in the warehouse.
This area, optimized according to precise organizational criteria and with the help of two automated vertical warehouses, allows the storage of a large number of products and components.
Each year the warehouse manages about 35,000,000 components that pass through the department to be shipped or to be stored awaiting further processing.
Shipping, the last but not the least step of the entire business and production: the organization of the entire process guarantees high compliance with delivery times, significant factor in determining customer satisfaction.
CGS makes use of numerous selected hauliers, or others indicated directly by the customer, to carry out an average of 30 shipments per day.
All the plants designed for processing are connected to a conveyor that directs the waste material to a centrifuge, where the separation of the brass from the liquids takes place. In that way the chip reaches the storage silos ready to be picked up and transformed back into brass bar, eliminating all waste. A similar treatment is adopted for plastic materials: the plastic sprues are recovered through a collector mounted on each individual press, and then unloaded into a mill to be ground and mixed with a virgin polymer according to percentages suitable for the type of component to be produced.
Great attention is also paid to the chrome plating process: the water used in the various processes is treated with a special resin in closed purication cycle tanks; is then regenerated and puried to be reintroduced into the production cycle, guaranteeing a hundred times superior water saving. Moreover, thanks to an advanced technologically liquid distillation system, non-recyclable residues are
In addition to that, CGS also does its part in terms of energy: the plant is equipped ith solar panels that transform sunlight into electricity, guaranteeing significant energy savings.
