Universal diamond cutting machine RA961

It is during this period that Mr. Roberto decides to develop a universal diamond cutting machine with 2-head (vertical-horizontal) and with features that make it suitable for performing any kind of decoration on jewelery objects.

The precision of mechanical machining, the large dimensions of the cross-table as well as the wide range of accessories, give this machine the qualities of great versatility of use.

The change of the guard in the technical department

There is the introduction of the electronic component applied to the already established mechanical precision.

This marriage is developed and improved over the years, until it reaches the quality standard of our day.
