CAM srl is a company that manufactures industrial equipment for the lead acid battery industry, in particular lead oxide ball mills and curing chambers for battery plates. The company was founded in 1967 by Armando Marfisi, later joined by his brothers Bruno and Fernando.
Our equipment is completely made in Italy at our headquarters, by highly skilled mechanical and electrical technicians, who also install and commission the machinery at the customer’s facility.
PROCESS AND QUALITY CONTROL
International certifications: ISO 9001: 2015 and OHSAS 18001: 2007 regarding Design and Manufacturing of IAF 18.
Furthermore, each piece of equipment we build is re-assembled and tested in most cases through a simulation of an 8 hour shift before shipping to the customer.
DURABILITY OF CAM EQUIPMENT
The first CAM systems were installed in the 1970s, all of which are currently still in operation, including our first ball mills. It is worth mentioning that we have never had to replace a mill drum, or the mill crown in any of our mills. The same thing goes for curing chambers. In general, our clients opt to carry out a revamping of components and accessories every 20-30 years to update the equipment, but the structure always remains the same.
WHERE HAS OUR EQUIPMENT BEEN INSTALLED
CAM has sold equipment and systems in 4 continents and 20 countries in the world.
Europe: Italy, Wales (Cwmbran), Spain (Azuqueca, Manzanares, La Cartuja), Poland, Germany (Buedingen, Weiden, Bad Lauterberg, Berlin), Austria, Portugal, Ukraine, Armenia, France, Turkey, Russia.
Americas: Tennessee, Kansas, Brazil.
Asia: Kazakhstan, The Philippines, Malaysia, UAE.
To design and build equipment paying great attention to detail in order to guarantee durable quality.
Through the years our R&D department has concentrated on innovating with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions while cutting energy consumption in the systems we build. Our main focus has been on energy recovery systems in lead melting pots and in curing chambers, which have been installed both in new and older equipment, allowing 17 to 28 percent savings in energy expenditures.
Along the same path is our lead shaving system, the fulcrum of the future of this company and the lead acid battery industry. This system was first designed and built in 2005, and subsequently patented. Today this is a productive and well-established machine that has been installed in several battery factories.
We are convinced this contribution will be of vital importance for the future of the lead acid battery industry.
