At the basis of our operative philosophy stands the strong will to challenge traditional concepts, to think outside the box, to create unique solutions, producing efficiency to be delivered to each customer, no matter the size or the leaning.

All this context allows not merely the upgrading of existing technologies and production systems, but also the introduction of new finishing concepts to the market, such as the revolutionary range of products branded COMBI®: a new generation of abrasive belts, based on a patented system consisting of a PET film backing, together with velcro or paper, combined with high tech abrasive minerals – such as Zirconium and Ceramic – and cooling additives.
This winning combination has already established new standards in terms of lifetime performancestrength and sanding precision.

It’s not enough to generate innovation: we also have to be able to deliver it to our customers in the right way and on the right moment, accompanying them along the path of improvement with competence and reliability.

All this is possible thanks to some initiatives aimed at spreading innovation, such as the TRAINING LAB, an advanced learning laboratory based on the concept of open and shared knowledge, available for sales staff, technical staff, resellers and final users, in order to generate skills measuring up with every finishing need.

Innovative Finishes
