The passion, the involvement and the care for each detail constitute essential aspects of Alberti’s mindset, resulting in the accurate search for the best solution for the components, such as seals, high-resistance materials used for gears, the geometry of the main internal parts as well as the continuous improvements in the productive process, in the choice of treatments and in the sophisticated design.
All products mirror the creativity, the pursuit of perfection and the aesthetical care that during all these years have always inspired the founder Umberto Alberti and his family and they are known worldwide as synonym of uniqueness and reliability reflecting 100% the quality of Made in Italy products.
Umberto took over his father’s company that used to manufacture moulds for the metal foundry industry, then he specialized in the production for moulds for plastic components. The first angle head had been designed and assembled mainly for this machining needs. The idea worked very well and helped in reducing the machining time. Being the product unique in its kind, Umberto immediately understood the potential and began producing the first models: L line (Light), M line (Medium), P line (Heavy).
His wife Franca joined the company as CFO. Umberto developed the adjustable heads: TCU and TDU models and improved the existing models. He bought the first CNC machine by Olivetti and the first Biglia and Mori Seiki lathes. In order to improve sales in Italy and especially abroad Umberto decided to rely on an international sales network which began to sell Alberti heads worldwide.
Alberti moved to Saronno. The company increased its number of employee to 15 people and renewed its machines: 1° Makino, 1° Nakamura lathe and the 1° Studer grinding.Alberti started to diversify its production by introducing other products such as live tools. He also introduced other special angle heads models, such as TA tilted serie and TR offset serie
New products have been projected, such as the high speed range of heads with air spindle motor. Thanks also to Nadia and Elisa , the company has developed its own worldwide sales network which relies on own exclusive dealers and partners.
Despite the global crisis, Alberti grew in terms of employees, production plant and number of machines.
At the moment there are more than 30 people hired among the production and technical department. The new building includes another grinding machine, 2 other lathes, a new FMS 4.0 integrated system and a high precision 3D measuring machine inside a controlled room temperature.
