Three Generations of Innovations & Technology in the Manufacturing of Premium Quality Overhead Conveyor Chains
Orbita, a well-established company in the sector of components for overhead and floor conveyors celebrates 60 years of activity. Established in 1962 for the production of small metal parts mainly intended for the automotive industry, as early as the mid-'60s it expanded its production range with the design and construction of chains and bearings for conveyors, the products that currently account for almost all of its turnover. The continuous investment in technology made since the beginning has enabled the company to establish itself in the coating plant market and be fully repaid by the trust of its loyal customers. The entrepreneurial path of Nazzareno Roda, the President of TSPGROUP, belonging to Trafilerie San Paolo, is the emblem of that of an entire generation. In the mid-1960s, Nazzareno Roda crossed destinies with Trafilerie San Paolo, a company established in 1966 by three partners and specialising in drawing stainless steel tubes. Nazzareno Roda made their business take off, importing the cold plastic deformation technique to Italy. This important innovation gradually turned Trafilerie San Paolo’s customers from turners (with 60% waste and non-constant quality levels) to moulders. In addition to the parent company Trafilerie San Paolo, the Group includes two other drawing mills, Gerosa and Meal, each with a different specialisation; Raptor, for the development of application software; Tramev, with its tools intended for the main drawing machines; and Orbita. The latter is located in Cesana Brianza (Lecco, Italy) and it is the pride of the Roda family. Today, the company’s activity is carried out in a modern plant of about 2,000 square meters. Its highly qualified staff uses sophisticated automatic machines, as well as assembly robots able to complete the production process of an entire component autonomously and in absolute safety. Technical skills and innovation are still the forte and the distinctive feature of the entire Group.
