FLUID & TRANSMISSION. The family SME Rastelli Raccordi, one of the historic manufacturers of hydraulic fittings in Italy, turns 70 this year. The opportunity for a portrait of a company that favors the regular reinvestment of part of its profits in research and development. Owned by the Rastelli family, Rastelli Raccordi was founded by Adriano Rastelli. The SME currently employs 190 people spread across its various sites: the headquarter in Villanterio-Pavia, Italy, the Italian branches in Turin, Padua, Bologna and Avellino, the French sites in Chartres and Nantes, the German site in Ostfildern-Nellingen, the Spanish one in Martorelles and finally the site of Nanjing, in China. These branches are all organized in total operational autonomy. They have their own commercial, administrative and logistic structure, having stocks dedicated to their market. On a technical level, the SME has always been linked to the cutting edge of technlology in the field of fittings. The reinvestment in the updating of the machine park allows to currently have multispindle lathes and CNC-transfer machines that reduce processing times, ensure processing precision and optimize the consumption of raw material. Zinc-plating and durable development The zinc-plating treatment is done directly in its workshops with results of the highest level. These use state-of-the-art systems in compliance with REACH regulations. Continuous research and development have allowed the company to reach 500 hours on white rust and 1000 hours on red rust in salt spray tests. It should be noted that the use of toxic solvents is absent from its production processes even in degreasing or washing operations, and the biodegradable solutions are used to eliminate oils, even in the zinc-plating treatment. The SME has organized in its workshops a system for the recovery of oil from the machines and for the treatment of processing waste and equipment washing. The recovered oil is reused, which greatly reduces waste and emissions into the environment. New patented system The expertise acquired over 70 years has allowed the company to obtain one of the most demanding and most complete approvals in the industry, all combined with a thoroughly studied pricing policy. Hence the ability to maintain its leading position in a highly competitive environment. This necessarily applies to the design of standard products. However, Rastelli Raccordi does not fail to innovate in “shelf” solutions. The SME cooperates for this on a daily basis with its customers, satisfies the most demanding applications and produces, if necessary, dedicated items. “In the range of DIN 2353 fittings, the RR-Form system has been patented” explains Barbara Rastelli, manager of the company. “It is a cold forming system of the tube with the use of a specific machine. The coupling of the elastomer sealing rings to the fitting, with the aid of an anti-unscrewing washer as an additional guarantee. “This new cold forming machine has been conceived to create a tubular shape adapted to the new AR3-Form ring. On the logistical level, Rastelli Raccordi has adopted the choice of fully automating its supply chain, from packaging to shipment, according to the goods-to-man principle. “This allows us to increase accuracy and effectiveness and reduce delivery times by 25%” specifies the SME. Barbara Rastelli undelines: “Industry 4.0 is an important goal that we do not exclude and for which we began working in 2020. A new management system must actually be launched that will allow for a transformation in the short term.” Rastelli Raccordi, the Italian leader in fittings Rastelli Raccordi was founded in 1952 by Adriano Rastelli. In 1962, Rastelli became the first Italian manufacturer of DIN 2353 fittings. The creation of an effective organization and the continuous acquisition of new technologies allows it to expand its range of products. The company becomes the market leader of hydraulic fittings in Italy, and one of the main producers in the world. The first branch outside Italy was founded in 1974, in Germany. We will have to wait until 1990 to see the opening of the France branch, 1992 for the Spain branch, 2014 for the China branch. SME is constantly expanding its product ranges: in 1991, the JIC 37 fittings, in 1997, the hose fittings are added to CPN range (Catalogue of Normalized Positions), thanks to the acquisition of Rotflex Verona. Rastelli currently faces the new challenges of the market by introducing increasingly sophisticated methods and procedures and cutting-edge technological products to guarantee quality and added value to its Customers. Example: a high-tech workshop was opened in 2013, in Valera Fratta.
Maintaining high attention to the environmental impact that has been consolidated for years in all our activities, in fact our entire internal cycle from mechanical workshops to packaging has been extensively developed with respect for the environment so much so as to obtain UNI EN ISO 14001:2015, our team of engineers, in cooperation with the experts in the research and development department and in the zinc-plating treatment plants, have developed the new Zi-Ni TOTAL SCREEN (RRTS) system tested for all our products.
We have reached our 70th year of activity and FLUID, the prestigious German magazine, presents us with a dedicated article Rastelli Raccordi was founded in 1952 by Adriano Rastelli. After the first steps in the field, the company quickly became the first Italian manufacturer of fittings according to DIN 2353 and reached a leading position on the Italian market of hydraulic fittings. Thanks to the introduction of an efficient company organization, a continuous integration of new technologies has been made possible, such as the use of galvanized steel and stainless steel. In this way, the product range could also be expanded with JIC37° fittings, BSP-BSPT-NPT adapters and hose fittings. Currently the company, based in Villanterio (PV) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers in this sector. The company, still owned by the family, currently employs 190 employees, has four branches in Italy (in Turin, Padua, Bologna e Avellino) and strong internationalization. The company has branches in France (Chartres and Nantes), Germany (Ostfildern-Nellingen), Spain (Martorelles) and China (Nanjing), all organized in full operational autonomy. Each branch has its own commercial, administrative and logistic structure and can draw on warehouse stocks for their respective markets. The issue of sustainability has acquired ever greater significance. No harmful solvents are used in the production, galvanizing, degreasing and washing – and, for the disposal of the oil, the company uses biodegradable solvents. In its workshops, the company has also equipped itself with systems for recovering oil from machines and waste from processing and washing plants. The recovered oil is reused in order to minimize waste and protect the environment. After the galvanizing process, water is recovered and reused, made possible thanks to investments in a purification system and the decision to equip all production sites with waterproof floors to avoid soil pollution. Rastelli Raccordi produces about 24 tons of fittings daily for export all over the world.
With great pleasure we inform you that we have implemented the approval package with the RS (Russian Maritime Register of Shipping). The document can be downloaded from the Certifications area. We are sure that it will be appreciated by new sectors
In occasion of Hannover Messe 2017 we have been delighted to introduce the new RR-FORM© tube cold forming machine, designed and realized in order to create a suitable form for the new AR3-FORM© ring where the cutting ring TD 88 is not usable. The new RR-FORM© system assures absolute tightness and represents an alternative safer than the traditional cutting rings in presence of vibrations, even more enlarging the wide range of products that Rastelli Raccordi offers to its customers.
New commercial branch in Turin
From 01.06.2022 the new commercial branch in Turin became operational via 1° Maggio 2/4 –10043 Orbassano (TO). We have enlarged our stock and completed the range including stainless steel fitting in order to improve the service to our customers. Our staff is available for further information..
