Interview with Simona Imperatore, the new Human Resources Manager at Came

27 July 2020

We are pleased to introduce you to Simona Imperatore, the new Human Resources Manager at Came. Simona will be the leader and manager of one of the most important aspects and values that distinguish Came: People. Came has entrusted Simona with important development and management goals for the Came team.

What experience do you have?

I moved to Came following seven years of experience in Human Resources at large companies in the Vicenza area, initially in the metalworking sector and then the tanning sector. During this time, I started with a professional internship and worked up to the role of specialist, with increasing responsibility for human resource search, selection, training and development processes.

What are Came’s strengths?

Today, Came is the link between a family company and a managerial organisation. The company manages to combine personal attention and the air of cooperation that you generally breathe in a family company with the innovation, dynamism and managerial focus typical of a large structured organisation.

Came’s strength derives from a belief in the value of the team and its component people, whose daily contribution helps make the company increasingly competitive. I can’t help but agree with this vision, which allows me to work in an environment that certainly promotes development of existing resources as well as addition of new talent.

How does the talent relate to Came’s innovation?

Because it is young, dynamic, technologically up-to-date, strongly focussed on people and well rooted in the area, Came is an extremely attractive company to young talent with an ambition to join a winning team. Today, prospects for growth, training, quality of life and workplace sustainability are elements that a company must provide, if it wants to attract and retain talent. Came’s investment in human resource management aims to go in precisely this direction.

What is the plan to develop the talent in Came?

In my opinion, every employee is to be regarded as a “customer” whose satisfaction must be the foremost goal of the Human Resources department. Just like an external customer, each employee has different talents, characteristics, needs and expectations. We want to follow them, listen to them and support them fully in their journey through the company. In fact, our attention must be focused both on adding new resources with high potential and on exploiting internal resources, in order to continuously grow and develop the corporate human capital. As well as finding talent and adding it to the company, it is essential to nurture, enhance and motivate the talent to stay in the company and bring the best out of it.

In fact, our high potentials must be in a position to show Came their value. Organising coaching, continuous training and development, and introducing facilities that improve the quality of corporate life are two macro projects through which this goal can be achieved.

BLDC motors in thermal cyclers for analysing Covid19 swabs

3 June 2020

Came has accrued significant know-how in creating wound stators for BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) motors, whose characteristics make them essential in a wide range of applications such as e-bikes, electric vehicles, HVAC, handling and many other fields of use.

The most important applications of BLDC motors include thermal cyclers, which hit the news in 2020 as the most useful tool nations have to analyse swabs taken from the population and keep the Covid19 epidemic under control.

Swabs are sticks with cotton pads to collect nasal mucous and pulmonary fluids. The sample is placed in a test tube and inserted into a thermal cycler, a machine that has been used for years to identify other pathologies such as common flu.

The thermal cycler heats and amplifies the genetic material of the virus through a polymerase chain reaction.
It is a compact instrument that uses discs with specific reagents to identify Covid19.
Thermal cyclers can very accurately analyse several samples at the same time, and provides results in just a few hours.

These devices must offer extremely reliable analysis quality and results, so they use Brushless Direct Current motors because of the following benefits:

– High efficiency;
– Stable rotation;
– Maintenance free;
– Small size;
– Long service life.

Came can boast lengthy experience in prototyping, industrialisation and production of wound stators for BLDC motors, thanks to a range of machines that will be expanded in the coming years to effectively meet customer needs.

Team Came's approach to the Covid19 crisis

18 May 2020

During this time of crisis caused by Covid19, Came has adopted a set of extraordinary measures to guarantee the health and safety of all its collaborators. To do this, it has worked on the management and company organisation, with the additional goal of ensuring company operation and continuity of service, above all to provide economic peace of mind and ethics to its collaborators.

Even before the safety protocol for containing the spread of the Virus, dated 14 March 2020, was officially issued, Came acted promptly by implementing strict measures to guarantee the health and safety of its employees.

The company management involved all its managers and workers’ representatives, immediately forming a Covid Committee to be at the front line in order to implement, improve and verify the steps taken to see Came through this emergency.

The main tools adopted by the company to achieve these goals are:
– Information and periodic bulletins for collaborators
– Changes to working hours and shifts
– Use of smart working
– Daily body temperature measurements at the entrance
– Distribution of PPE (masks, gloves)
– Installation of hand sanitizer dispensers
– Specific signs and posters in all company premises
– Changes to internal routes
– Contingent use of toilets, canteens and changing rooms

All of these actions have been supported by the vision and resilience of the Covid team, by continuously monitoring the perception of employees’ mood in production and management, and by the spirit of sacrifice and loyalty of all employees who have strictly observed the protocols that have been verified and approved, including through two visits by the local SPISAL (workplace health and safety prevention service) and by trade union representatives.

Those smiles that were lost for fear and uncertainty in the early days of the emergency, have now returned to the eyes of all collaborators in Came, in the knowledge that Came and its team are present and active during this period.

The new Came portal

2 March 2020

The five Cs of good communication: clarity, completeness, conciseness, concreteness and correctness.
(Anonymous)

Good company communication is not only important when making initial contact with business partners, but must be considered periodically, changed and implemented every day.

The web portal is taking on an increasingly important role among the new tools for communication and interaction between business partners.

The institutional website, to which we have become accustomed, is now supported by a portal, which is mainly intended for the purpose of sharing and providing customised access. It gathers information that is relevant to the user’s context to facilitate interaction between companies.

Came activated its customer portal in 2018 as part of an innovative business vision and to consolidate business partnerships.

The Came portal is a window onto internal operations, offering users a real-time update on the progress of their activities.
– Created with very clear graphics for fast and very intuitive consultation;
– Use can be adapted to the type of user, selecting just one or several sections of interest;
– The tool undergoes continuous improvement and expansion, thanks to the internal work of our EDP department, which collects suggestions resulting from the experiences of our partners.

And soon it will become even more interactive, allowing die-cast material to be booked from the catalogue after consulting the just-in-time stock and availability of any similar items ready for delivery.

Came confirms the attitude that makes it a transparent and innovative business partner aiming for continuous service improvement through continuous interaction with its contacts and the market.

The importance of growing your staff

18 September 2019

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young, and open.”
Henry Ford

There are many famous quotations about education, but what does this have to do with businesses? Surely, the education of our staff and managers is the responsibility of schools, who have to mould them and prepare them to step into the workplace, when a position arises.

But is that really the case? I’m not talking about whether or not schools are doing their jobs: we could start a lengthy debate on that subject without ever reaching common ground. What I mean is, could buying people “ready-made” from the marketplace really be the best way of finding a good manager? Can a new entry join your company and really be ready for the role? It would be wonderful, but it isn’t like that.

Every role within a company requires a huge number of skills; some of them are more technical, and can potentially be inherited from other jobs or from school, while others are more wide-ranging, such as knowledge of the company and its credo, how it deals with problems, what its practices are, how it handles meetings, and so on. In short, each company has its own lifeblood; the sales office in one organisation will never be the same as its counterpart in another. The same goes for purchasing departments, technical divisions and so on.

When a manager joins your company, you need to start from the assumption that he or she knows nothing about the company, nor about the colleagues they will be working with. What can we say on this point? Best results call for total cooperation. How can people work well together if they don’t know who they are dealing with, what they like, and what annoys them?

Ultimately, in-house training would seem to be extremely important for newcomers; they have to put themselves on an equal footing as the colleagues already at the company or for those who are growing in order to take on more important positions.

Came firmly believes that investing in the training of its managers will yield the best results. Properly-trained managers bring added value to every area of the business. Once again this year, our entire managerial team is engaged in a multi-level training programme. The results of this are already evident: the more they grow, the stronger they become. The stronger the managers, the stronger the company.

This is what we believe in and I can assure you that, as Director General, seeing my managers grow together gives me a great sense of teamwork and unity, because everything we do strengthens the team. With a well-trained, cohesive team, there’s no challenge we can’t face.

Until next time. Enjoy your training!

Partnership, Came’s calling

15 July 2019

We often hear the word Partnership, but what does it really mean?

It is an alliance between two different organizations, characterized by common or complementary projects, advantageous to all. All too often, it is used to describe a privileged relationship between customer-supplier, in a somewhat detrimental way to the actual meaning of the word.

Over the years, Came has always made Customer involvement a vital part of its processes, sharing skills and work systems, developing collaboration to form a Partnership.

Focusing our energy on the central role played by the Customer, we always take the greatest care to cater for the needs of the interlocutor, offering a notably diversified and dedicated service to establish their specific needs as precisely as possible, in order to create value for all parties involved. Our partnerships offer the best possible service solutions: from the product, thanks to modern machines being continuously updated, to research and development services, brake testing on a test bench, consignment stock, and forward-looking management, to innovations such as die-cast X-ray booths and BLDC windings.

Our Partners can:

  • Obtain and use resources they wouldn’t otherwise have access to
  • Economise/cut costs
  • Share experiences and procedures
  • Benefit from a stable long-term relationship with a reliable partner
  • Improve results and increase customer satisfaction

With our Partners, we establish needs and define the rules to follow, for the greatest transparency. In order for sharing to be effective, it is important to understand what all those involved want, and undertake a project that has been defined together, with everyone doing their part. Otherwise, it would be unthinkable to allocate investments and dedicate resources to research into optimization, new inventions and solutions..

A few years ago, we started collaborating with a European customer: their initial request was to produce a winding and fit it to the customer’s casing. Unfortunately, there were various non-compliance type problems with the materials used by the customer’s supplier, and this made it impossible to go into production and supply the required quantities in time. Thanks to the synergy in our die-casting division, we were able to design a mould that improved the casing, cast it and supply the finished, painted product. With our windings’ division, which revised also the fitting process, we were able to provide a fully comprehensive service, guaranteeing continuity for our Customer and meeting their requirements to the full. To reach these goals, close collaboration between internal functions is essential.

Part of my job as back-office manager is to participate in the coordination of the various phases of the processes involved in creating a bespoke service.

Thanks to this approach, every day we develop, continuously learning new skills: owners, managers and department heads dedicated to the growth and in particular to the development of cross-competences, essential for getting the most out of individual professional skills.

This is how Came creates added value throughout its structure, continuing to be a solid and reliable point of reference with its Partners, who continue to grow with us.

Corriere Imprese Nordest: Came and the importance of the global value chain

10 April 2019

We are pleased to announce a new article published on Corriere Imprese Nordest on 11 March 2019.

Thanks to the next-shoring strategy, as described in the article, Came has focused on the 3 most important factors for its development:

– The proximity to the markets;
– The availability of resources (material, human and relational) to feed the innovation processes;
– The local network of qualified suppliers.

The focus on the importance of the global value chain has made Came the largest electric motor winding in Europe, integrated with die-casting.

This is also confirmed with recent investments to achieve more energy efficient windings and sustainable mobility.

The importance of an integrated customer-supplier chain

28 March 2019

Since the 2009 crisis, the metalworking market has become increasingly frenetic and fragmented. The huge stocks that customers were used to keeping, so they could respond promptly to market demand, have been slashed to free up liquidity.

Although the market has since returned to pre-crisis levels, the way that warehouse stocks are managed has changed irreversibly. Stock management is obviously fertile ground for efficiency improvements. For many manufacturing companies, stocks are the major part of their working capital, and stock management incorporates various types of cost: implicit costs such as the financial price of stocked goods, and explicit costs such as handling, storage and obsolescence risk.

Initially, consignment stock contracts were used, but that merely shifted the financial commitment from the customer to the supplier.

What is a consignment stock contract?

With this type of agreement, the supplier agrees to keep a pre-defined volume of stocks on the customer’s premises. The goods remain the property of the supplier until the customer picks them to use in production, or to sell. Obviously, in this way the implicit costs are passed to the supplier, while the explicit costs remain the responsibility of the customer.

This solution offers advantages for the customer, who can free up financial resources for other uses, and from the supplier’s point of view, it creates a partnership bond with the customer. However, it is a rather inflexible solution, which is excellent for steady-selling products, but may not be suitable for goods whose consumption fluctuates widely over time. In the case of stocks that are likely to decrease, it is possible that market demand will not be met at peak times, whereas stocks that are likely to increase will immobilise capital, and increase the risk of obsolescence. Where the trend remains more or less stable, all that is needed is periodic stock recalibration. The VMI was created to make this system more flexible.

A Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is a system that gives the supplier all the information they need to set the stock level at any given time. In other words, the supplier has a computer linked to the customer, and can see the sales data or forecasts for the future.This gives the supplier a clear view of the expected trends, so they can increase or reduce the stocks accordingly.

As the supplier is connected to the operating systems, they can save the work of uploading orders. Also, by following the trends, stock levels can be adapted more precisely to fit requirements, so the amount of immobilised capital is lower. The drawback is that each customer has a different system and so the integration needs to be designed specifically in each case. It is a system that requires great customer loyalty. Integration systems involving manual data entry on the website of either party actually lose much of the advantage of this solution.
Came offers its most loyal customers different solutions to fulfil their needs:

  • Forecasting contracts for the purchase of unfinished stators to reduce the lead time of total throughput
  • Came stock holding contracts, which reduce the lead time to packaging and transport only
  • Consignment stock contracts where stocks are held with customers, eliminating the lead time
  • VMI consignment stock contracts for perfect synchronisation of the stock configuration system

 
We currently have about 20 stock management contracts with our customers. The solutions are working very well with smaller customers, and also with large international groups.
We are convinced that this is the way forward. Our customers can only benefit from supply chain integration. Our business idea is a win-win policy, where the supplier works with the customer to find the best way to jointly serve the market.

Interview with Emanuele Cenzato, the head of the die-casting division of Came

26 February 2019

We are pleased to introduce Emanuele Cenzato, the head of the die-casting division of Came.

Emanuele Cenzato, the person known in the world of Italian Die Casting, has been a consultant for numerous national foundries. With extensive experience in design and foundry optimization, he also gained experience in the automotive sector.

Came has entrusted Cenzato with important corporate objectives in terms of technical sales support and internal growth. Emanuele Cenzato was an important and strategic choice for Came characterized by the desire to count on the one hand, on a consolidated managerial experience and, on the other, on the sure ability to accompany and guide the company’s processes and improvements in terms of the evolution of the foundry division in progress.

How has die-casting changed in the last decade?

In recent years the world of die-casting had an important development. The technology has improved and the presses and systems have become increasingly sophisticated and intelligent. The constancy of the processes is assured and well controlled. New aluminum alloys have been developed that allow the construction of pressure casting jets of a complex shape and with excellent mechanical characteristics. Features that are enhanced by the possibility of these alloys to undergo heat treatments.

What is the future of die-casting?

Softwares that are developed allow us to design the mold without errors because they give the possibility to see virtually what will happen in real production. We can do the simple simulation of the filling of the mold cavity, the simulation of the mold itself in working with parameters and temperatures and the evaluation of the deformation that the jet undergoes during extraction. Thanks to this, die-cast aluminum has replaced other heavier materials, such as steel and cast iron, in many applications.

How will die-casting affect the automotive industry?

The automotive industry, for example, has significantly increased the use of aluminum in several of its components. This allowed a significant reduction in weight and therefore fuel consumption. For some time, thanks to the use of special alloys, structural parts of the automobile or vehicles, in general, are also produced in die-casting.

How should Came customers prepare for changes?

The quality die-casting therefore has an important future: Came believes in it and is structuring itself for this. The machinery and plants are all of the latest generations and the technical staff is made up of engineers and experienced staff. Customers find in Came a reliable, capable and highly qualified partner able to solve any problem.

Came is defined by CUOA as the most Japanese company in the Valle del Chiampo

31 January 2019

We are pleased to announce a new article published on the website cuoaspace.it n.49 of 14 January 2019 where Came has been defined as the most Japanese company in the Valle del Chiampo.

Thanks to good administration and an excellent financial situation, profits have always been reinvested in the company.

Came invests and believes in the managerial and organizational growth of its staff. The Lean philosophy is an important reference for the whole company.

An interesting aspect of this case,as explained in the article, is that the growth took place in a mature market (windings and components for electric motors) and by maintaining the position in the business to business chain.

This strategy has made Came the largest electric motor winding in Europe, integrated with die-casting.

Came Aluminium Die-Casting, your one-stop shop

21 January 2019

A proper foundry management to be “winning” in a field of constantly changing economic contexts, shall focus on territorial quality, social welfare, and competitiveness.

Competitiveness is linked to the following aspects:

1) Strategic management and the requirements of “ethical theory”;

2) Cost and plant management efficiency;

3) Flexibility and adaptability to different market conditions:
a. increasing export share;
b. internationalization paths;
c. continual shift towards products with high added value;

4) Energy and labor costs in line with those of other large industrial countries in Europe;

5) Professionalism of all employees involved;

6) Ability to be an essential part of the circular economy, becoming a large “recycling machine” (more than 70% reuse of scrap and recycled material).

It was also found that it is necessary to take on the new challenges by joining a choral strategy, with common responses across the various levels that make up the supply chain of the production sector.

In other terms, the subject which creates value is no longer the company, but the supply chain that is part of a system in which there is new market and work distribution.

Only the interaction between the supplier, foundry and customer creates new ideas, investments and an overall view of the system.

Therefore, in the current industrial context, foundries are increasingly taking on a strategic role as suppliers of systems and finished components, and are no longer simply manufacturers of rough aluminum castings.

For the customer, the foundry is increasingly the leader of a supply chain and network of companies and centres of expertise that are widely complementary and interdisciplinary. A competitive foundry shall be an innovative foundry, highly focussed on efficiency and quality.

In this complex competitive context, Came aspires to a position of excellence as a supplier of technically complex components being part of an international market.

Also, to expand our value proposition, partnerships have been created with leading industrial companies in order to expand the portfolio of services offered to our customers.

Today, Came is your partner, able to provide not only die-cast aluminium components but especially the know-how to industrialise your ideas and create the value chain needed to achieve the finished component.

All this aims to stay closer to our customers, as Partners.

It has been a rewarding experience to work with our employees, suppliers and customers.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year full of health, happiness and success.

Distinctive characteristics of aluminium die-casting process

30 November 2018

Innovation is a broad concept that includes many features, among which the material is certainly in a position of primary importance. Nowadays, product innovation is a fundamental theme to be competitive and at the forefront of the global market, which is increasingly complex and challenging.

In this context, producing a component manufactured with a material and a process that allows to obtain an economic advantage, a weight saving, excellent mechanical characteristics, a complex design and a hi-tech look, is certainly a considerable competitive advantage.

The die-casting process is a metal processing technique, in which the aluminum alloy in the liquid state (temperatures above 700°C) is injected at high pressure into a metal mold and allows to obtain components in fast, efficient and with a good degree of finish.

The vastness of components and applications obtainable with the process of aluminum die-casting, is mainly due to the fact that the castings are characterized by specific technological qualities: the lightness that compares it to steel offers a ratio 1/3, the electrical conductivity which is second only to copper, the mechanical characteristics enhanced by the possibility of creating specific alloys, resistance to atmospheric agents, resistance to contact with food and also resistance to corrosion.

The aspects above mentioned explain why die-cast aluminum is used in all the main industrial sectors, from the most sophisticated ones such as aerospace and automotive, to the most common ones such as electromechanics, plumbing, lighting and furniture.

CAME S.p.A proposes itself as a partner, which thanks to state-of-the-art and constantly evolving technologies and skills, is able to support its customers with one of the most used production processes in modern industry.

The new brand of Came Aluminium Die-Casting

13 December 2017

Came is the company with considerable experience in the production aluminium alloy die-cast components for electric motors.

Since 2018 Came has decided to invest even more in these activities, which mostly involve customized solutions for third parties. This is also thanks to the constant dedication in responding to the particular needs on the market in a dynamic and flexible way.

To achieve these objectives and to conserve the highest quality, Came has made a significant structural change within the company, creating a young and dynamic team dedicated exclusively to the production of die-cast for third parties.

The new brand and the image of Came Aluminium Die-Casting represent a strong decision and dedication of the company for new developments and perspectives. This project is a conjunction between past and present.

Significant investment was also made from the technological point of view with the increase of robots, presses, and measuring instruments and a new plant, all to increase production capacity.

With this productive, technological and structural upgrade, Came has set itself the goal of being increasingly ready to seize new market opportunities and to be increasingly available alongside its customers.

Celebration of Came 40

27 November 2017

The 40th anniversary of Came was a special moment. It is a true example of experience, responsibility, success and teamwork of our company.

The best way to commemorate such an important achievement is the book Came 40 that assembles the most important facts and company values. This also serves as a memento and an inspiration. The book is available only in digital format and only on Came 40.

For this special occasion, the memorable film has been made with the stories of people of Came, from the charismatic founder Lino Chilese to the loyal employees who worked from the very beginning for and grown together with Came.

Came was also proud to organize two special events to celebrate. Galà dinner for customers, collaborators and partners and the “Open Day” in the company, the event where the Came employees and their families are invited to visit the establishments. Discover exclusive videos and photos of the two events on Came 40.

Came would once again like to thank major collaborators who made this event possible, all the employees, partners and customers who participated in this event and who have always been alongside our company.

Came is celebrating 40 years of success - Came Spa

Founded in 1977, Came was specialized in the production of windings for electric motors, a business that became its synonym.

Over the years and decades the company grew steadily, expanding its production to offer a 360 degree service for all electrical engine components. In 40 years of life and work, Came has become one of the most important companies in its industry. With 250 employees, 5 factories and 26,000 square meters of surface area, Came is able to offer the market the highest quality products and services.

Came pursues an entrepreneurial style based on the experience and tradition of many decades, lives the world around itself, innovating itself and what it does, always trusted because it does it with passion, commitment, seriousness and customer care. All this has been made possible thanks to its founder Lino Chilese who has guided, managed and coordinated the company since its establishment, now affianced by the second generation, with his sons Cristian and Matteo.

To celebrate such an important birthday, on September 9th, Came will have the opportunity to meet customers, collaborators and partners in a Gala dinner organised to celebrate together the first 40 years of the company.

In addition, on September 10th will be organised the “Open Day” in the company, the event where the Came employees and their families are invited, to visit the establishments and to celebrate this important achievement.

These initiatives will be the way to thank all those who have helped in these 40 years to build the company that is today, by collaborating with Came or choosing its products and services.
