Despite the pandemic, also this year Unilock collaborated in the training of a young man, Raffaele Missaglia as part of the “School-Work Alternation” project.

From the PROJECT to…. PRODUCT!! Four months of coaching with specialized personnel to assimilate company contents, a FULL IMMERSION in the world of mechanics, combining theory with practice.

Raffaele, in its path in the company, started from the technical office, where UNILOCK products were born and here he learned the creation of a product, starting from the research and development phase up to the design phase, using modern Autocad 3D programs.

He continued his training, always supported by the tutor, collaborating with the production manager, who made him follow the complete journey of a typical work order.

First of all, he has learned the use of UNILOCK’s management software, the brain that controls the entire production, understanding its importance and acquiring its correct use at the “user” level; then he joined by the machine tool operators and acquired good practice in their use.

He learned to interact with technologically advanced machinery, starting from cutting the raw material with FORTE high-speed automatic band saws, then moving on to mechanical turning and milling processes on our MORI SEIKI centers and, subsequently, to other processes such as electroerosion, with the SODICK EDM machine and the vulcanization by the RAP press.

Raffaele was very enterprising, right from the start and showed a lot of interest in the proposed activities and in the company, therefore he was actively involved in the weekly internal meetings in which problems and company objectives are discussed and which are useful to strengthen the cohesion between management and operational staff, to improve work processes and to increase productivity.

In addition, he took part, with good profit, in the training courses offered by the company, together with the specialized workers of UNILOCK, dealing with and acquiring innovative topics such as SMHOOT TCHNOLOGY MAZAK or EDM FANUC metal cutting.

Raffaele has been able to complete his theoretical and practical training, working in all departments, to see and understand the entire production process: the transformation of steel from raw material, a simple bar, to a complex finished product, a system of technologically advanced clamping.

On the last day of our stay in the company, we asked Raffaele Missaglia what he thought about the experience and he replied as follows: “UNILOCK is a big family, from the first day here, I had a great time with everybody and I hope to be back soon!! I would like to thank the management and in particular my tutor, Giacomo Rusconi, it is thanks to his guidance that I have learned a lot in these wonderful months “

UNILOCK is satisfied with the work done by R.M. and congratulates him on having obtained the full marks in the school-year end exam.
