EXPERTISE AND QUALITY
The close relationships maintained with our customers and the other market players provide CROMA with a long and unique experience in working with plastics.
This expertise allows our teams to give you the best advice regarding the use of the machines and the way of working with your materials in general (painting, gluing, coating…).
Our customers work with CROMA not only to buy a foam cutter, but also years of experience.
CROMA also ensures the durability of its equipment: since the first machine built, almost all the spare parts can still be supplied.
Customers are therefore assured to operate their hot wire foam cutter with a low maintenance and for many years, while benefiting from the improvements, software updates and options that CROMA regularly develops.
Many machines older than 25 years are still in operation with our customers, even though we didn’t have to carry out any specific maintenance on them.
