New automated warehouse for pallets We improve our entry and exit operations and storage of products

Automatic storage systems for pallets are solutions that use automated mechanisms for the handling of loads. It offers a high storage density thanks to the reduction of the work corridors and its height growth capacity. It also uses minimum response times. Its reliability allows the immediate inventory of stored products and minimizes errors in the handling of loads.

With the new automated pallet storage system we get:

  • Increase our storage capacity thanks to the high degree of compaction, the use of height
  • Automated and digitized material entry system
  • Automated system extraction of product through stacker cranes in order to optimize all physical movement processes within the warehouse, which in turn is connected to the “host” of the company from where the orders are received to process the different transactions from the warehouse.
  • Considerable time saving in material delivery
  • Reliability and versatility. As long as the merchandise conforms to very stringent standard characteristics of palletizing, within the robotic warehouse we can store any type of merchandise.


New storage system for tubes Storage system with unloading bays

In our constant vocation to improve service, Leku-Ona incorporates a new automated storage for tubes into its machinery park. It allows storing and automatic removal of material in bundles and in simple, rough or worked pieces and of various length and weight. The automatic warehouse of 10.105mm in height, has 2 towers, 1 elevator, 34 containers; with mobile shuttle for loading and unloading containers. Full capacity of the warehouse 102,000kgrs.

This new vertical automatic warehouse allows us to organize and optimize the storage of tubes, reducing the time of preparation of the orders and giving greater security to the operator in the movement of the materials.


AICON, new tube optical measuring machine 16 cameras allow accurate scanning in seconds

Leku-Ona already has a new machine (AICON) to improve the processes of measuring and manufacturing pipes. 16 cameras allow accurate scanning in seconds, generating the exact information to be able to execute production immediately. PRECISION, RAPIDITY AND QUALITY. The new machine acquired by Leku-Ona, allows a non-contact measuring system, merely requires that the tube to be measured is placed in an optical measuring cell. Sixteen high-resolution digital cameras with latest GigE technology accurately measure the tube’s geometry in a few seconds.

The tube does not need to be moved. The geometry is reported in an easily understandable way that is as sheath tolerance. The measuring range of TubeInspect P16 is 2,600 mm x 1,250 mm x 700 mm and this can be extended by repositioning the tube. TubeInspect P16 measures tubes with diameters ranging from 3 mm to 200 mm. Bends between 1° and 340° can also be measured easily. TubeInspect P16 has a newly added capability of measuring tubes with connected bends or with flexible parts.

TubeInspect P16 is also able to measure tubes with hose sections, shaped hoses, and hoses with fixtures or mounting attachments. Thus AICON extends the spectrum of optical measurement applications significantly. Tube measurements can be compared with a previously recorded sample part or with an imported CAD model.

Once the measurement is made in seconds, the information collected is sent directly to the tube production machine that works quickly and precisely.


New FASTER multi-connectors solution for forestry and recycling cranes The new application of the MULTIFASTER facilitates the handling and dismantling of the cranes in vehicles to speed up the operations of loading and unloading bulky materials

For more than 30 years, Leku-Ona has been the exclusive distributor in Spain and Portugal of products by FASTER®, a company recognised worldwide for its state-of-the-art and reliable couplings and quick connectors.

The Italian brand remains at the forefront when it comes to offering effective solutions adapted to the requirements of different markets, in this case that of forestry and recycling cranes.


It is very common to find trucks equipped with cranes to transport wood, scrap and other bulky materials. In these situations, the manoeuvres that are carried out with these extremely bulky materials require the dismantling and moving of the crane to provide more freedom of movement.

To perform this operation, the cranes are equipped with hydraulic or mechanical jacks, but in order to carry out the operation safely, easily and quickly there are several solutions on the market that include the use of quick-release hydraulic couplings.

Wood transport and haulage (and scrap recycling business) is many times performed with dedicated trucks, equipped with cranes.

Sometime, in order to load longer logs, increasing transport capacity, the crane has to be disassembled and left on ground (see above picture on the right).

To perform this operation the cranes are tipically equipped with Hydraulic or mechanic jacks and to make the operation safe, easy and quick there are several solutions on the market, using Quick Release Couplings.

Assembly Instructions

Here there are the assembly instructions for DIN 2353 fittings manufactured and marketed by NEXO FITTINGS. It is recommended to use pre-assembly tools.


1.- Tube preparation

Cut the tube square (do not use a pipe cutter). An angular offset of 0,5° is permissible.


Lightly debut the tube ends and clean the tube. The maximum permitted chamfer is 0.02 x 45 deg. The clamping area must be clean and free of any chips, dirt, grease, oiland paint.



2.- Tube preparation

Lightly lubricate. Immediately proceed with the assembly in order to avoid exposure to contamination.



Consecutively put the union nut first and then the cutting ring onto the tube end. Pay attention to the correct alignment of the cutting ring: The cutting edges have to face to the tube end.


Carefully insert the tube end into the 24° taper of the final assembly stud and push it firmly against the inner stop. The tube must be held in this position during the entire assembly process in order to avoid faulty assembly.

Difficult mounting conditions or larger sizes may require the use of a vise.


Press the pipe firmly against the stop in the coupling body. Tighten the nut with a wrench until no further tightening is possible. Hold coupling body steady with a wrench.



Checking: Slacken the nut and push back. Check that the gap between coupling body and rind is closed.


Repeated Assembly: Reassemble the con- nection using the same force as final as- sembly. This should be done each time the connection is reassembled.

The incorporation of Nexo Fittings puts the icing on the cake of the year 2017 at LekuOna Global Solutions During 2017, LekuOna has incorporated several novelties in the services and products that it offers to its customers, in a clear commitment to ongoing improvement.

In little over a week we will welcome a new year and, as is becoming the tradition, we will take the opportunity to look back on the milestones achieved at Leku-Ona Solutions throughout 2017.

On the one hand, one of the biggest novelties of the year has been the incorporation of the company Nexo Fittings to Leku-Ona Global Solutions with the aim of designing, manufacturing and commercialising at a global level its own range of hydraulic fittings for flexible pipes and tubes under the NX brand.

The Nexo Fittings range of hydraulic fittings and connections are manufactured in carbon steel according to the ISO 8434-1/DIN 2353 standard, and are designed for the safe and leak-free connection of metric pipes with diameters from 4 to 42 mm in the light, very light and heavy series.

On the other hand, our ambition to continuously improve our processes and products has been an ongoing feature in 2017. This year we started with the integrated manufacture and assembly of customised non-standard hydraulic reservoirs, with a tailored design and manufacturing, made to the client’s functional, capability and design specifications.

Likewise, we are committed to the incorporation to our catalogue of a new range of hydraulic quick couplings under the name of Ultra High Pressure UHP 100 and UHP 150, which is a result of the strategic decision by Faster to invest in R&D in order to offer top quality products aimed at the industrial sector and high pressure tools.


The investment in machinery was topped off with the purchase of a new BLM tube bending machine which will complete the bending section. This means that the tubes section of Leku-Ona Global Solutions now comprises 6 bending machines with diameters ranging from OD: 4mm to OD: 102mm for bending carbon steel, stainless steel, copper and brass tubes.


Leku-Ona with sports
Like every year, Leku-Ona has strengthened its commitment to the values and philosophy of sport by sponsoring two summer sporting events with a strong following in the area: the Getaria-Zarautz swimming competition and one of the Kintopekos contests.
All of the milestones achieved throughout this year are the result of the effort and work of the team at LekuOna Global Solutions, and which this year also took part in the 10th Company Race organised by Adegi in San Sebastian. Next year there’ll be more to come!

Leku-Ona has recently purchased a new BLM tube bending machine that will complete the requirements of the bending section.

This means that the tubes section of Leku-Ona Global Solutions now comprises 6 bending machines with diameters ranging from OD: 4mm to OD: 102mm for bending carbon steel, stainless steel, copper and brass tubes.

The main features of the new BLM ELECT (ET 102) tube bending machine are:

– The three-dimensional VGP3D graphic programming software: verifies the real possibility of producing the parts, eliminating the risk of collision typical of the first test. It calculates the actual cycle time in advance, reducing the time needed to prepare quotes, and automatically generates the machine cycles.

– Multi-radius: the machine works in multi-radius mode or with different blocks for curves and reverse curves.

– Right or left: you can choose the direction of bending you use most.

– Fixed or variable radius bending in a single cycle: it can mount up to 8 tools at a time, deciding in which position (1, 2, 3, 4 … 8) to put the variable radius.

– It guarantees the maximum repeatability of the part and an unrivalled degree of geometric precisioneven in complex parts.

– It guarantees maximum control of the process: it controls and adjusts to the reactions of the materialand to its elastic return. The ELECT provides several thrust powers (from 2,000 N to 60,000 N), which can be adjusted during the entire bending phase.

Following the new acquisition and thanks to the investment the company has made, Leku-Ona now has the following bending machines:
