Modern machinery and quality control
The Supersnow management clearly understands the necessity of using new technology in the production and in the process of snowmaking. Attention is paid to the quality of service provided by the company which means we implement unique tools and devices. Supersnow fitters are equipped with devices for laser alignment and machine diagnostics, produced by the company Pruftechnik.
The marvels of technology
The indispensable construction of pumping stations and their subsequent service works. Inaccurate pump alignment is the most frequent cause of failure. This tool allows the adjustment of hundredth of millimeter accuracy. Completed by the Vibscanner, which is a measuring instrument for testing the technical condition of machines. Vibscanner, based on regular measurements, predicts failures. Such information is very useful before kick -starting the season and significantly supports service and maintenance of the snowmaking system. The instrument enables spectral analysis of machinery vibrations. Such analysis allows for quick diagnosis of a machine – in this case: a pump – and precisely indicates the fault location. Attention to reliability of pumping devices depends largely on its proper power supply and operation. Supersnow control systems have been in operation for years since business began. The constant pursuit to simplify the system operation involves the need to implement the latest advances in automatics. Hence, in the past year, Supersnow was the second company in Poland, which implemented the latest Siemens controller – a novelty on global markets. Recently, usage of the same advanced controller has been carried out on the automatic snow cannon.
Introduction of the new control system is not the only example of using new technology in the production of Supersnow cannons. Designs based on the latest 3D software which enables a complicated analysis of FEM, is underway. The most important machine elements, such as a ring or a water supply unit are not constructed by subcontractors – they are produced at our local plant in Białka Tatrzańska. This is the best solution, which allows for full and unlimited quality control at each stage of production.
Proper cutting and welding machines are needed for production of those elements. Supersnow factory possesses a few cutting machines, amongst them are CNC devices and a lathe with turning diameter of 1000 mm. The whole system is made up of TIG and MIG welding units, working on a rotary table with a swivel base.
High quality technology used by Supersnow results in solid, effective and modern products. Recognition of the brand is continually growing through our success – not only on local, but also on the international market. This is undoubtedly confirmed by the Austrian and Swiss companies willingness to cooperate with us , as shown through the manufacture of important elements in their products. Yet our company continues its journey. Investments in cutting equipment and the introduction of new products in artificial snow making are planned in the upcoming days.
