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.


We incorporate the new CNC tube bending machine par excellence, ETURN-52 Versatility for innovative solutions, product and service guarantee

In our desire to improve our service and guarantee the quality of our products, we have incorporated into our infrastructure the new BLM ETURN-52, the tube bending machine par excellence. Folds tubes from 8 mm diameter. to 52 mm . In-process right-handed and left-handed bending, with fixed or variable radius, in single or multiple radius mode.. The ETURN is so flexible that it adapts to any type of application from the interior decoration sector to the automotive industry. A unique versatility for always innovative solutions.

With the new tube bending machine we can develop our work without limits: Freedom of shape: with round, oval, rectangular tubes, pre-processed with holes or slots… Freedom of radius: fixed and/or variable. Freedom of orientation: flat, sideways, inclined. Freedom of bending direction.


It doesn’t matter if you are bending thousands of parts or just a few prototypes. Now you can make the first part a good part. It used to take great skill and a number of man hours to dial in a bend and minimize wasted material. Our 60 years of expertise has been condensed into the CNC control of the E-TURN tube bender. Changeover times are dramatically reduced as all the critical settings for the bending machine and tooling are managed automatically by the CNC including: clamps, pressure die, mandrel position/ retraction, center line radius etc. Using the B_Tools feature guarantees perfect results regardless of the operator’s skills. The first part is always right!


You can create an infinite number of virtually identical parts by exploiting the features of the industries’ most evolved bending technology.


The VGP3D three-dimensional programming software makes the real difference:

  1. it checks part feasibility, eliminating the risk of collisions which typically occur during the first practical try out
  2. it calculates the real production cycle time in advance, slashing the time needed to create customer quotes or determine feasibility
  3. it automatically generates the machine program.

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:

  • – 1 BLM ELECT (ET 102) Maximum bending capacity from OD: 6mm up to 102mm Fully electric machine with right/left bending and 3D visual graphic programming (VGP3D)
  • – 1 BLM E-TURN (ET 52) Maximum bending capacity from OD: 6mm up to 52mm Fully electric machine with right/left bending and 3D visual graphic programming (VGP3D)
  • – 2 BLM-SMART Maximum bending capacity OD: 22mm in steel tubes and up to OD: 28 mm in copper, brass or aluminium tubes
  • – 1 BLM HYDRAULIC NCS832 Maximum bending capacity up to OD: 30mm
  • – 1 AMOB MDH 60 Maximum bending capacity OD: 60mm

With these machines the range of solutions offered to our customers continues to increase, in line with the search for excellence that characterises Leku-Ona, at the forefront in the sector.

A year of strengthening Leku-Ona’s global industrial services 2016 ends on a good note after reaching important milestones within the corporate group.

Within a few days of bidding farewell to the year, we feel obliged to look back and take stock of the work and achievements made by Leku-Ona during 2016.


Following the change of facilities in August 2015, Leku-Ona prepared to enter a new phase in 2016, establishing itself as a leading international company capable of providing services and products adapted to the needs of both national and international clients.

The commitment to continually improving our services has been the focus of this year. Achievements include increasing the public opening times in the warehouse (Monday to Thursday from 06:00 to 22:00 and Friday from 06:00 to 21:00) and the new implementation of software in the robotised warehouse system, which provides immediate delivery of products to clients who use the direct sales desk and in turn reduces the loading, unloading and waiting times for clients and carriers.

In addition, after summer the Leku-Ona group made one of its most significant investments for 2016 in equipment for the machining division: the Bost VTL 25 CY multitasking double turret vertical lathe, a high-precision machine and piece of technology ‘expressly designed to meet the high standards demanded in the wind energy sector’. Its installation was discussed in the industry magazine Interempresas.

Furthermore, around the beginning of 2017 we will have a GMTK VL 2.8 X2400 lathe (swing of 2800 mm and a height of 2400 mm) fully operational in what we consider a clear strategic commitment to the wind energy sector.

In connection with the Machine-tool Biennial in Bilbao (BIEMH) at the end of this month, the Interempresas review has brought out a special issue in which, among other subjects, it mentions one of the most important investments in machinery made by Leku-Ona in 2016: the Bost VTL 25 CY multitasking double-turret vertical lathe.

As explained by the head of the Leku-Ona group, Álex Zabala, the Bost VTL 25 CY (turnkey developed) is a high precision and technology machine “expressly designed to meet the high standards demanded by the wind power sector” with a maximum turning diameter of 3100 mm.

For the time being, “this state-of-the-art machine will be exclusively dedicated to producing work for one of our customers; a reference company in the manufacture of wind turbines which already collaborates with other divisions of the Leku-Ona Global Solutions Group” and which “has placed its trust in us to machine wind generator planet carriers”, the part that conveys the movement of the wind generator blades to the multiplier.

Everything in this lathe is specially developed and designed by Bost Machine Tools to meet the high standards demanded by the wind power sector: the machine includes a “y” axis for greater versatility when manufacturing parts of high complexity, and provides the flexibility necessary to tackle this and future projects.

Completing the investment is a metrology machine purchased from HEXAGON MEROLOGY. The machine in question is a DEA Delta Performance 3D high-precision Gantry with a useful range of 3000x5100x2000mm and a fixed-head Ultra High Accuracy LEITZ X5HD for point by point and continuous measurement.
