The Client is the focal point of the service’s work, being understood as a partner for growth and mutual success. With this objective the quality is seen as a fundamental part of the service in accordance to the continuous evolution of the framework in which it is called upon to operate, particularly in the field of aluminium silos, hoppers, oil & gas, piping and service, becoming an integral part of all the members of the organisation, with the aim of continuous improvement towards the Client’s satisfaction.
For this purpose Weikom believes that the most important tools are:
- Management of synergies with its employees and customers;
- Respect of safety standards at work to safeguard the employees;
- Respect of environmental standards, the environment being a heritage for the future generations;
- Achieving clear and shared goals for a continuous process of improvement;
- Awareness raising activity, education and training at all levels, as a means of involvement and growth of the employees, with a view of continuous performance improvement.
In the building and construction of silos, depending on the material of construction, the following design rules are followed:
Carbon steel / stainless steel
Steel quality S235JR (EN10025), welds MIG or TIG
Steel quality 1,4301 (AISI 304) 1, 4306 (AISI304L) (EN10088), welds MIG or TIG
The calculation standards, dimensioning and testing in Italy is the NTC2008 and consecutive circulars; in the European range and in some non-European countries, the EN1991-1-4, 1-3, EN1998-4, EN1993-4-1, EN1993-1-8, EN1993-1-4 (applied to stainless steel) are observed. The local or international applicable standards in other non-European countries, are analysed and negotiated directly with the engineering section of the customers.
Aluminium quality: alloys 5083-5754-6060 (EN15088-2006), welds MIG or TIG.

Designed for the mixing of powders and granular products for the food, chemical and plastic sectors, particularly suitable for the frequent replacement of products. The proposed models start at intermediate volumes increasing from 2000 litres up to decidedly relevant dimensions such as 70.000 and 90.000 litres. The vertical mixers are characterised by a compact, modern and functional design offering speed and homogeneity of mixing, easy to use and easy to clean during the moments of product changing.
The structural carpentry works, are from the beginning studied and designed in detail with two-dimensional and three-dimensional CAD system interpreting the architectural projects and proposing optimal solutions from the structural and executive point of views. The use of the three-dimensional design helps to evaluate and resolve in advance any potential issues which could arise during the installation phase, thereby optimising the time during installation. The works produced are substantially of an industrial character, although important works have also been carried out in civil field such as stairs, support structures, photovoltaic systems, bridges and footpaths. The high static strength of the structures are long lasting, furthermore they also try to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding spaces and match with the other materials used in the concerned construction.
Oil & Gas
The activity has started in the performance of small structures and of simple mechanical assembly, then the activity has progressively increased in the articulation of the construction of devices on on-shore systems and subsequently has developed, thanks to significant experience, into the construction and installation of systems in the treatment of gas and in the petrochemical field, modification and revamping within sites and industrial plants.
The products are developed and completely realised by managing all the construction phases, starting from the design planned by the client and perfected with the help of graphic and parametric modelling programmes. The experience gained over the years allows us to develop and refine any type of request, moreover the service is also structured to suggest technical solutions and/or to improve aesthetic quality in order to obtain a great impact result but at the same time rationalising the costs giving the opportunity to our commercial partners to be more competitive in the final sale markets. The service is carried out with the utmost professionalism at a competitive price on the market proposing, already at the offering phase, the development of the requested project.
The gained experience is applied to the prefabrication, assembly and installation of all types of pipes, in pipelines, including compressor stations, and storage reduction and prefabrication facilities and special workshop pieces including the service for the supervision of civil and mechanical works. The welding operations are evaluated for every single application from the special steel alloys (A304, A316, Clamp, Duplex, Super Duplex) to those in the various aluminium alloys. The construction of pipelines is made from the simplest to the most complex intended for industrial plants and oil&gas with a possibility for protective coatings applications and/or anti-erosion.
