Cafro Plant

70,000 Sq. feet manufacturing facility in northern Italy

Cafro takes its name from the inhabitants of South Africa, where diamond deposits where first discovered. This smart idea belongs to Giovanni Mancina, who, in September 1955, founded a diamond tool Company, nowadays leader for precision grinding, Half a century has gone by and the third generation of the family is preparing to gather a tradition made of total commitment and deep knowledge of the market.

In 1995 the production area grew three times larger, in 1999 another 35% was added, today, the plant has a covered area of 70,500 sqf., where around seventy employees are working. Since 1996 CAFRO is certified according to ISO 9002:1994 and since march 2002 according to new ISO 9001:2000 standards; in this leaflet the product range and the sales network are briefly outlined. Our know-how covers the areas of planning and engineering our machinery and equipment, of research on raw materials and bonds, of new applications and process optimization for our tools, also through a continuing partnership with our customers and several European machine tool manufacturers.

Our production is structured in six manufacturing departments:
1.- Powder dosing and treatment, with research development labs
for bonds and raw materials;
2.- Mold filling, molding and post-curing for low temperature resin backings and bonds;
3.- Mold filling and sintering of vitrified and metal bonds, and high temperature resin bond molding;
4.- Galvanic vats for electroplating;
5.- Mechanical shop for turning, milling, cutting and grinding;
6.- Wire erosion, brazing, grinding, sharpening of PCD tools;
7.- Automated stocking system for finished products.
