WEGA Providing cutting-edge technology
To develop and provide state-of-the-art technologies: this is the corporate mission pursued by WEGA. Specialized in the production of tanning machines, designed to measure finished, semi-finished and wet-blue hides, this brand has grown into a strategic benchmark for the international industrial tanning industry, synonymous with the excellence of Italian manufacturing. Headquartered in Arzignano (Vicenza province), in the heart of the “Leather Valley”, the company deals with the application of electronics to the leather processing cycle.
“Industry 4.0 a truly pivotal topic, and rightly so,” explained Nicola Ocello, engineer and WEGA’s managing director, at latest edition of Tanning Tech, “but, for at least ten years, we have been able to manage the work and performance of a machine via PC, through which we can send the data. Now, said operations can be performed by smartphones and apps as well, thus resulting in further benefits for either the entrepreneur or for the person monitoring the corporate activity. Here we are advertising the new database that allows to keep under control all types of figures and pieces of information concerning the production cycle and each single processing phase.”
The WEGA catalogue mainly features two specific product categories: electronic machines for measuring the leather surface area (roller type, bridge/bar type and thickness gauges) and electronic temperature detectors for tanning drums (Thermoradar). “These models,” explained Ocello, “are suitable for measuring all types of leather, from cowhides to calfskins and pigskins, up to reptile skins such as crocodile, cayman and snakes. High-precision and utterly reliable advanced equipment, designed and made to guarantee the utmost ease of use.
We are proud to say that we were among the pioneers in applying digital innovation to the tanning process, by implementing it in the final production stage, through the measuring of the leather surface in order to better assess the commercial value of the processing.” Constantly on the lookout for new technologies, the company has managed to develop cutting-edge devices, all patented, for car diagnostics as well, as in the case of the Wegabat battery tester. “Precision and safety are the distinctive trait of our products,” stated WEGA’s owner. www.wegaitalia.com
