Costacurta S.p.A.-VICO is an Italian company specialized in the design and manufacture of metal components for industry and architecture, serving markets worldwide, as the perforated plates.
Our entire product portfolio originates from wire and plates.
We export most of our production and are suppliers to manufacturers of machinery used in various sectors including food, mechanical, textile, paper and wood.
We are also qualified suppliers of leading international companies that are involved in developing technology and providing engineering services and equipment for oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industries.
Furthermore, we offer supervision during installation and assist our clients in the development of new products.
Costacurta produce wide rage of perforated plates
Perforated plates manufactured by Costacurta are able to meet the needs of different applications in numerous industrial sectors. Thanks to the very long lasting experience in punching, drilling and milling processes and to the rigorous controls provided by Quality System, Costacurta is in the position to manufacture many kinds of perforated plates, also special, always assuring a very high quality level. Flexibility and compliance with the contractual delivery times, also critical, are possible due to the quantity and qualitative level of perforating machines, to the flexibility of organization and to a wide range of raw materials available in stock.
These can be manufactured
with different kinds of perforations, of which the main ones are
round, square, rectangular, oblong, tapered and bridged. Standard
is 2000x1000 mm, however the machines used enable perforation of
plates up to 6000x2000 mm. Thickness of the plates varies from 0,3 mm
to 20 mm for plates in carbon steel and up to 15 mm for stainless
steel plates. It is possible to obtain plates with perforated areas
in special geometric shapes, for example trapezoidal or circular
crowns. After perforating, the plates are straightened and may
undergo degreasing treatment to eliminate residues of the lubricant
used during the punching process. Plates with different levels of
surface finishing can also be supplied, attainable through
butter-finishing, sandblasting and electrolytic polishing. They can
be produced in different materials, such as for example, carbon
steel, stainless steels, Nickel-Chromium alloys, pure metals.
Can be produced with three different kinds of perforations: cylindrical, step drilled and conical. The diameter of the perforations can vary from 1 to 6 mm. The maximum dimensions of the drilled plates are 6000x2000 mm, with a maximum thickness of 15 mm. After drilling, the plates are butter-finished and washed to guarantee perfectly clean perforations. They may undergo further surface finishing treatments, such as for example, sandblasting and electrolytic polishing. Different finishes or special coatings may be carried out following specific request by the client. The
It is possible to produce plates with different milling profiles, in compliance with the client’s specific requests, by using the appropriate tools. The maximum s and thicknesses of milled plates depend on the type of milling required. After milling, the plates are butter-finished and washed to guarantee perfectly clean milled areas. They may undergo further surface finishing treatments, mainly sandblasting or electrolytic polishing. Different finishes or special coatings may be carried out following specific request by the client. The milled plates can be produced in different materials such as: carbon steel, stainless steels, Aluminium Alloys, Copper and its alloys.
Plain Dutch weave
This is a special kind of weaving in which the weft wires, which are normally of a smaller diameter than the warp wires, are woven so that they are fully joined together. There is no opening in the mesh, only a transversal passage where the weft wires alternate. Plain Dutch weave cloths are used almost exclusively for filtering, in particular when the weave must have a high level of stiffness. Plain Dutch weave cloths may be supplied in rolls of various widths and lengths and in flat panels in different geometric shapes. It is possible to make them from all metal materials and alloys, that can be drawn into wire, such as for example carbon steel, stainless steels, Nickel-chromium alloys, pure metals.
Twilled Dutch weave
Wire cloth in which each weft wire passes successively over two and under the next adjacent pair of warp wires. With this weaving, larger diameter wires can be used compared to plain Dutch cloths; this means that extremely compact cloths can be produced, obtaining retention of as little as 5 microns. Twilled Dutch weave cloths are also used almost exclusively for filtering, in particular when the weave must have a high level of stiffness. These weave cloths may be supplied in rolls of various widths and lengths and in flat panels in different geometric shapes. It is possible to make them from all metal materials and alloys, that can be drawn into wire, such as for example, carbon steel, stainless steels, Nickel-Chromium alloys, pure metals.
