Production department at full speed
The TechnoAlpin production department, which is currently working at full capacity, performs goods-in checks, functional and quality tests during the mounting stage, and a final test on the completed machine: the so-called "water test".
The Quality control team's main duty is to check incoming goods deliveries bound for the spare parts stores and the production and plant engineering areas, as well as to make the final check on the mounted components prior to customer delivery.
51 staff also work on the production lines building on average 30 snow guns and 30 lances each week. Before being mounted on the valves, certain components of the guns and lances – including every nozzle ring, valve block and valve connection unit – are checked during pre-mounting.
When the guns have been assembled and finished, each machine undergoes a full functional test: this is when the "water test" is carried out. The whole range of snow-making functionality is simulated on the test benches. The machines run various programs at different operating levels. Every snow gun that leaves our works has been subjected to a rigorous testing cycle; these tests underpin our product reliability and warranty.
