The Italpunti history began in the year 1965 when the today’s President Mr. Franco Sarti designed the first “folding band machine” to produce staples, and in so doing launched the first revolution in the staples production process, that until that period was utilizing only single wire machines.At that time too the first single flattening machine was designed having a full electronic control, designed to prepare the flattened wires on spools to feed the newborn multi wires machine. The production capacity of that first multi wires machine was about 300.000 staples per hour utilizing manual packing. 10 years later, in 1975, the folding band machine was replaced by a “press system” utilizing an eccentric press, (that is still today the most utilized staples production system in the world).
Around the same period, at Italpunti the first multi wires flattening and banding line was also realised, which was reducing the band production costs when compared with those of the single wire flattening machine. Until that year the machines designed in Italpunti were utilized only for its own production of staples, because the Company was founded as a staples production company, but the “rumours” of Italpunti technology was arriving at several Companies making staples around the world, and in this way the first contacts began with staples manufacturing Companies asking to buy this technology for their own staples production.
Step by step Italpunti started in this way to produce machines for selling, and it was at this point that Italpunti Macchine srl was founded, and still today that is our Company name. 5 years later, in 1980, Italpunti Macchine srl took another 2 big steps in developing staples production technology:
