Farina delivers press number eight to San GratoEvery year, the Italian company San Grato produces around ten million forged parts for cars, motorcycles, industrial and commercial vehicles and agricultural machines. Many of them are made on seven Farina presses with press forces between 1,000 and 5,000 tonnes at the company’s factories in San Carlo Canavese (Torino) and Malonno in the province of Brescia (North-West Italy).

Now, San Grato has ordered its eighth press from Schuler Group’s Italian affiliate Farina. The 2,500-tonne machine features a kinetic energy recovering system (KERS) which reduces the power demand by 40%.

In order to counter foreign competitors, San Grato also already covers two thirds of its energy cost by its hydro-electric power station located close to Torino and a photovoltaic system installed on the roof of both plants.

Because of its energy efficiency, the new Farina GLK 2500 press will improve the company’s green credentials still further. At the same time, it also offers an increased output and reduced maintenance costs.

San Grato was founded by Eligio Fresia in 1961 in the Piedmont region, and in the 1980s a new production site was opened at Malonno. Over the years, the company has implemented several innovative solutions in the fields of digitalisation and the Industrial Internet of Things and has also installed cross wedge rolling equipment.
