Replacement of an old machining line by a new more efficient one

10 RAJEB is a Moroccan SME, based in Casablanca, founded in 1991 with the aim of developing wood joinery from an artisanal to an industrial model.  The company has played in this sense a role of “market maker” and has quickly established itself as the 1st manufacturer of doors and closets in Morocco. Since its creation, the company has developed its expertise in the wood industry to produce doors, cupboards and kitchens, based on its founding values: quality, flexibility and technological innovation.

Conscious and concerned about environmental problems and especially deforestation, 10 RAJEB is the first Moroccan company to obtain PEFC certification, which guarantees the traceability of wood. This certification illustrates 10 RAJEB’s commitment to respect the environment.

Within the framework of the rehabilitation and the modernization of its production tool as well as an optimization of its resources, the company 10 Rajeb decided to replace its old line of machining of hinges and locks with a new more powerful machine, for the operations of drilling and milling of the wooden doors for the hinges and for the locks.

In addition to performance, this new machine offers other advantages such as ease of use, better quality/safety assurance and better operation of the production line with less energy and more precision, thus optimizing the value chain. The implementation of this project, financed by SogeLease, reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 49 T CO2 eq per year compared to the baseline and saves approximately 85.80 MWh/year in energy.
