Centauro SpA was the first in Italy to produce band saws with steel beds as early as far-off 1946.
Owing to the undoubted quality of its products and the wide range of band saw models it supplied in steel and cast iron, the Centauro brand immediately spread throughout the domestic market and later on an international scale as well.
The Centauro manufacturing programme has been enriched with a new line of lathes in both the manual version and with copying units since 1970. Technological innovation then led to the subsequent introduction of electronic and numerical control lathes.
Ever since 1990 new lines of machinery, such as rip saws, numerical control production systems for shaped cuts, chain mortisers and chisel mortisers in a variety of versions, have expanded Centauro’s supply in order to meet the most diversified demands of the world market, which absorbs about 70% of its turnover.
Centauro SpA has plants covering 25,000 sq. m and it employs more than 100 people.
