  • DIMECO Flexilines  - Flexible punching lines

    Familly owned business, founded in the early 1957, Dimeco is now one of the world leaders for sheet metal coil production systems.
    Georges Jeanney, the founder, very early realized the market is worldwide and brought Dimeco to its actual 75% export level
    The rise of coil process in the years 1962 required the erection of a brand new production plant in the surroundings of Besançon, capital of French Stamping business.
    Reaching now 8000 m² (86000 sq ft), it is a large modern factory managed with lean Engineering process in order to get the best from is highly skilled working force…
    After Georges Jeanney’s death in 2009, Christine, his daughter, took over the chairmanship and is fully dedicated to go further in world market development.

    Dimeco R & D department designs all our products, as well for mechanical engineering as for controls and software and allows large product customization.
    Our working force includes about 100 people in Pirey (France), 35 in Oiartzun (Spain) and 8 in the Pune (India) joint venture.

  • ROTOBLOC by DIMECO: lean manufacturing solutions

    Since 1985, we offer solutions to optimize tool changeover time.

    SMED METHODS “SINGLE MINUTE EXCHANGE OF DIE” is one of the lean manufacturing tool concept enabling you to increase a process productivity. It’s a quick and easy way to switch from one production to the other.

    Optimizing the downtime helps decreasing the batch size. Therefore, the fund dedicated to the inventory throughout the production process is also reduced.

    As part of the lean manufacturing, the Rotobloc trucks help achieving optimized production changeover times, in the safest way.

    The main 2 types of trucks are either dedicated to coil handling or die & mold handling.

    DIMECO Coil Pick & Tilt
    • Coil Pick &Tilt : Electric truck designed for coil handling

    Loading of a coil (or stack of coils) from a pallet to the uncoiler, without any manual operation.The reverse process (unloading) is as simple. This solution is the perfect one for expensive material, as the tilting of the coil is achieved in the safest manner, without damaging the coil.


    Coil weight: 2 tons

    Maxi coil width: 500 mm

    OD: from 600 to 1500 mm

    Other dimensions upon request
