SPECIAL SHEET METAL FAIR
Controlled and professional lubrication systems
Hall 13, Booth D07
“2023 represents a special year for DieTronic, a company based in Lodi and specialized in the production of oiling systems for metal stamping and forming industry. In fact, this year Dietronic celebrates its 20th year of activity and the Lamiera fair will be the right occasion to give prestige to this milestone and to illustrate the developments and innovations of these recent months.
Versatile and easy to apply lubrication
After the positive feedback collected last year, the Promax strip lubrication system is still confirmed as a favorite in the varied range of DieTronic products and will be the protagonist during the exhibition: versatility and ease of use are its two distinctive and most appreciated features. This device, as well as all the other oiling systems in the company’s portfolio, grants a correct and controlled application of lubricant, so that the sheet receives the optimal quantity of product in the most critical points, without causing scratches and defects which could impact the quality of the finished product. In addition to this, another aspect that should not be underestimated is the healthiness of the work environment, which with greater control over lubrication is cleaner and safer for operators. Finally, the long-term benefits that controlled and professional lubrication systems can bring must also be considered: i.e. greater productivity, a significant reduction in oil and energy consumption, fewer scraps and less frequent need for maintenance or repairs of tools.
Simple and flexible configuration
More in detail, the Promax system has been designed to provide controlled strip lubrication, allowing you to select the desired amount of lubricant from 0.5 to 5 g/m2, only certain areas of the sheet metal surface. The configuration is deliberately very simple and flexible: the standard system consists of a spray box available in various sizes (from 200 to 800 mm depending on the sheet to be processed), and a 24 l pressurized tank, which can be easily interchanged, making it possible to manage even more oils. The company has also provided additional components, which may or may not be incorporated into the basic machinery: a suction system to remove any oil mists that could form during the spraying, a waste product recovery system to avoid dispersing the excess oil, and the Lubo-die unit, which allows a possible re-lubrication of some specific points, typically of the die. In this sense, Promax is proposed as an effective solution especially for those who want to approach the technology and the advantages of automatic spray lubrication systems.”
“Specialized in the production of lubrication and anti-rust protection systems for pipes and profiles, a company that has always paid great attention to innovation. Giovanni Amato, Sales Manager of DieTronic Srl tells us more about this reality:
Which features define your reality the most?
The two closely connected aspects that most characterize DieTronic are the strong specialization and the propensity for innovation. As a company specialized in the field of lubrication, we have always paid great attention to innovation: from the early years, in the development phase of our technology, and still today, in the constant and conscious updating of the tools used. In other words, we’ve been getting our hands dirty with oil for over 20 years, so we know what we’re talking about and we don’t shy away from challenges and innovations.
What are your future goals?
Our main mission is not only to produce high quality systems, but also to ensure a high level service in all phases, from information communication to after-sales service. Our goal is to be attentive to customer needs, providing valid support and continuous coaching for the success of the projects.
How do you move in a market like the current one?
Compared to a few years ago, the market has profoundly changed in terms of presence and methods. By presence I mean that it is increasingly important to work on a global scale, because by now we are dealing with the whole world. In addition, to live up to the various requests you need to be dynamic and timely, especially in customer support and assistance, without neglecting precision and professionalism.
How do you manage to keep up with industry and market evolutions?
The best way is to participate in trade fairs or industry conferences, to listen to market needs and have constant dialogue with other companies. Even with our agents and collaborators, we are committed to setting out regular moments for discussion and reflection. Finally, to have a fresher look at the world, we always favor the inclusion of young people in our team.
What answers do you offer to today’s greatest customer needs?
With the frenzied and unstoppable pace of today’s world, it is increasingly important to provide reliable and effective products. It is essential to encourage automation, to relieve operators of many responsibilities and ensure accuracy and repeatability of the process. This also translates into ease of use and extremely functional systems, minimizing the need for maintenance.
What characterizes your current offer?
Our current offer is divided into various proposals according to the needs. In recent times we have been moving more towards a standardization of the available models, each one dedicated to specific processes. This helps us to grant adequate and timely deliveries, as well as facilitating the management and availability of spare parts and components also in the long term. At the same time we have maintained the imprint with which we were born, designing tailor-made solutions when required.
Which novelties are you presenting in this period?
A novelty of this last period is our product extension also outside our classic applications. In the company development phase we focused more on creating an advanced and consolidated technology, well suited to household appliance and automotive molding, our two main markets still today. However, in the last couple of years we have extended our application fields, offering solutions able to work with various types of presses, including fast ones. The decision to include ourselves in this segment also derives from the desire to be associated not only with advanced and complex systems, but above all to be suppliers of efficient systems at all levels.
How do your systems help boost production processes?
Our systems are a valid support in optimizing production processes, especially thanks to our automatisation: the lubrication parameters, in fact, are set in a simple way from the operator panel and the adjustment takes place automatically, ensuring greater precision and controlled repeatability of the process. facilitating the work of the operators and minimizing the possibility of errors. In addition to obviously giving added value to the high quality of the finished product.
Which services do you offer to your customers?
Our company is structured to support and assist customers with specialized and dedicated staff at every stage: from pre-sales to commercial consultancy, from project management, up to after-sales, followed by our service department with on-site or remote assistance, support for spare parts requests and scheduled maintenance.
Finally, what do you see in the future of your company?
There are plans to extend our commercial presence on a more global scale. In reality it is a process that began more than 10 years ago and was recently consolidated with the founding of DieTronic USA, for the US and Mexican markets. We are also working to consolidate contacts with new partners, especially for the Asian market.

Leading systems in focus
Among the most recent DieTronic products, the Promax spray system has attracted particular interest and has brought the company to extend its application areas to fields such as progressive stamping, small metal parts and motor lamination. In this sense, the PROMAX is proposed as the most versatile spray model in the product portfolio, ensuring the advantages of controlled lubrication at a competitive cost. With its simple configuration and easy management of the lubrication parameters, the machine allows to dispense the lubricant product by spraying in strips, for coils from 100 to 800 mm width. Another highlight in the DieTronic product range is also the SAGOMA system for sectorial lubrication. Ideal for fields such as household appliances and the automotive industry, this device is capable of reproducing actual shapes or lubrication patterns on the surface of the sheet metal. Its key feature lies in the possibility of applying the lubricant product in a controlled way, only in the desired areas, in 50×50 mm squares and up to 8 different dispensing quantities for each area. The selection and management of the lubrication parameters (pressure, quantity of lubricating oil, areas to be covered) take place in a simple, precise and repeatable way via the operator panel. Better quality of end product, reduction of process costs and lower environmental impact are just some of the aspects most appreciated by users of the Sagoma line.”
