FAPIL (Factory Equipment for the Wood Industry), founded in 1959 in Brembilla, a dynamic artisan center in the Bergamo area, has been designing and manufacturing for several years alongside the traditional range of tools for turning, tools able to meet the most varied needs of production on in-line machines and to the most sophisticated requests of numerical control machining centers. Giuseppe and Giampaolo Pesenti continue their father's business dealing respectively with the Production and the Commercial Area. Since the early years of activity FAPIL has made itself known and appreciated nationally and internationally. 60% of the turnover is exported to the main countries around the world through a network of agents.
FAPIL is able to offer a complete range of tools and accessories for automatic milling machines and lathes with specific solutions made with precision thanks to the use of modern design and construction technologies available in the Zogno plant (Bergamo) where since 1976 it has transferred the its headquarters. Standard tools to satisfy the increasingly evolved machining needs in drilling and milling processes on numerically controlled machines. Since the beginning of the 80s FAPIL has been producing tools for NC milling machines in collaboration with one of the market leaders in the design and construction of CNC machining centers. Over the years FAPIL has developed an ever wider range of standard products for milling and drilling available in stock. Special tools to meet the customer's needs in the different phases of contouring, shaping and milling on traditional and in-line machines.
FAPIL has a new range of tools for traditional machines such as moulders, tenoners, contouring machines, spindle moulders, etc., designed and built for increasingly advanced machining with the aim of responding to the needs of both small and large users. Tools for turning, made with the experience of those who have always known and produced them.
For more than fifty years FAPIL has been successfully manufacturing gouges, cutters, profiled tools, taps, dies, dies, hand gouges and everything that belongs to the world of wood turning. All FAPIL tools are made with quality materials and with the right solution according to the type of material to be machined; a modern technical office studies and develops the products on the basis of the experience acquired and on the technology applied to woodworking in continuous updating with its customers and with the major machinery manufacturers in the sector.
Most of the tools that FAPIL manufactures are customized solutions that find the right application in the specific sector of the required processing, transforming the tool from special to standard.
