Moving develops ideas and design the moulds to create the steel, plastic and polyurethane components.
Moving produces in-house every single component of the chairs within the five departments of the central factory.
Moving assembles the chairs into the second factory and stores the pieces to build your chair in its big warehouse.
DESIGN AND MOULDS
Moving chairs are born from the moulds which are designed inside the internal technical office. These moulds are produced in the mechanic’s workshop and stored near the injection molding machine.
The moulds creating all the Moving chairs are hosted by 10 presses with a tonnage from 90 to 1200 tons. Here we also create the queen of the monocoques: the SLIM.
Steel is pressed by 7 presses with a tonnage from 250 to 650 tons. It is bended with a numerical control bending machine and it is welded to compose plates, mechanisms, structures and all the 4 legs and 5-spoke bases.
Steel components are washed, sprayed with epoxy powder and heated for the fastening. They enter the process raw and they come out ready for use.
The pieces arrive to the mechanism department where they are assembled. All the adjustable components are assembled and tested: Synchrotek, Synchroplus, Ergotek and tilting mechanisms, armrests and plate.
Liquid polyurethane is strained in the heated mould. In a few seconds it dilates and become soft and rubbery, taking the shape of a seat or upholstering the steel structure of a chair.
The chair starts to have its own shape: fabrics or leather are cut with two numerical control machines, they are sewed together and used for handcrafted upholstery.
Finally all the components are assembled. The chair is cleaned and wrapped to be delivered to our customer.
Moving carries out preventive tests on raw materials to ensure they are efficient. Engineering polymers and polypropylene are strained and tested through the microscope to certify the absence of impurities. We also test the resistance of the finished product and of the highly-forced components.
The warehouse is Moving’s strength. All the components are already here, ready to be assembled as desired. There are no doubt or waiting time. Your chairs are resting in our 15-metres high shelves, come and get it!
The showroom is the Interior Designer’s playground: here you can find all the models, all the bases and all the available finishings. We’ll be glad to welcome you and make you visit the company!
