ONCE UPON A TIME
The company’s founder, Paolino Bacci, decides to start a small production of vertical band saws for the local furniture district. Machines immediately acknowledged on the market as superior quality equipment due to their rigidity and reliability.
AN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION BEGINS
The company decides to begin manufacturing machines specialized in mass-production of chair components, an industry in which, at the time, Italy was a world wide leader (50% of chairs on the European market and 30% of chairs on the world market were at the time manufactured in North-eastern Italy). Thanks to the technical innovation and high quality of the machines produced, in 40 years BACCI has sold over 4000 machines in the Italian chair manufacturing district located in North-eastern Italy.
1st ITALIAN "CHALLENGER" AWARDED COMPANY
Our company’s innovative capacity was confirmed when BACCI became the first Italian company in the sector to be achieve this important award, the U.S.A Challengers Award, the prestigious award bestowed by the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta.
Mechanical machining and assembly lines are separated, in order to reorganize production along industrial lines, founding a new company called BACCI MECCANICA, with its own, new plant facilities.
OUR FIRST CNC MACHINING CENTRE
In the mid 90’s, to meet market demands and satisfy the growing request for production flexibility, Bacci introduces the first 5-axes CNC: thus, no longer just machines specialized for the chair manufacturing industry, but flexible machines capable of covering others applications. Since then, our 5-axes CNC machining centers have become the company’s core business.
FIRST DOUBLE HEAD MACHINE
In 1998, BACCI became the first company in the world to manufacture 5-axes CNC machining centers with double heads, able to machine the same piece with two working heads simultaneously. To date, Bacci is still the only company able of manufacturing double machines with these features. This is made possible thanks to a powerful and innovative software (Pitagora) that is capable of managing the relative position of the 2 operating units, avoiding all risks of collisions. This type of machine delivers both high flexibility of use and high productivity.
THE NEW FACTORY
Production is transferred to a new, modern plant adjacent to Bacci Meccanica.
BACCI CHINA REP OFFICE
Due to increasing sales on the Chinese market, in 2006 a technical and sales branch office is opened, located in the city of Dongguan – Guangdong region, hearth of furniture manufacturing. The BACCI CHINA office provides sales and after-sales services in China and other countries in the Far East.
BACCI CUTTING DIVISION
After the 100% acquisition in 2008 of “Veneta Macchine”, a company specialized in the production of vertical band saws for curved cutting and horiziontal wide cutting band saw, Bacci is positioned on the market with a broader and well-integrated line of products, providing a full range of solutions to machine solid wood (and not only).
OVER 40 REGISTERED patents
Thanks to ongoing research into new applications and technologies, dictated by the demands of a market that is in constant evolutions, over the years Bacci has registered more than 40 international patents, confirming the company’s innovative capacity and high technology standards, which are and have always been a company heritage.
THE NEW BACCI MECCANICA
With a view to continuous renewal and striving for increasingly high quality standards, Bacci Meccanica enlarged its plant and purchased a new and important CNC 5-axis metalworking machining center.
Quality for our clients.
Given the importance of the American market, BACCI has decided to open a technical services and sales branch in Charlotte (NC) to provide to American and Canadian customers sales and after-sales services.
2nd IWF CHALLENGERS AWARD WINNER
30 years after winning their first IWF Challengers Award in Atlanta-USA, BACCI does it again with their MASTER.PRO TRIPLE TABLE CNC Router, which shapes and sands the outside profile of cabinet doors.
This unique 6-axis CNC machine is the first to have true, high volume “Batch One” processing.
Paolino Bacci S.r.l. announced the establishment of Bacci Automation with the acquisition of FA Robot S.r.l.
Currently, Bacci is acknowledged as world leader in the production of CNC machining centers with 5 or more interpolated axes able of machining a variety of materials, from wood to plastic, from composite materials to aluminum. Our company’s innovative capacity, dedicated to the ongoing research for new applications and solutions, allow us to offer machines that are increasingly high-performance, and customize our production based the specific needs of individual customers.
Incomparable technology…. Since 1918!
