Almost ninety years of life make of the “S.F. Officina Meccanica 1930” one of the historic companies in the tannery machinery sector. At the helm of the Tuscan company of Montopoli in Val d’Arno (Pisa) today we find the third generation: the siblings Enrico, Simone and Silvia –  children of Franco and grandchildren of the founder Gino Soldani – who carry on the production of polishing, buffing, fleshing and shaving machines for bovine and exotic leather under the Soldani SF brand with the same dedication of their grandfather. Soldani’s specialty is exactly the offer of a machine line specially designed to treat the most delicate and difficult skins such as crocodile and reptiles in general. Robust and powerful systems that continue to evolve to meet the demands of fashion. The latest innovations launched on the market include, for example, the “Lissa”, designed for the glazing of all exotic crocodile and reptile leathers: built to meet the new demands of the market, thanks to a heavy structure in electro-welded steel to exert a strong and constant pressure on the skin, giving an exclusive effect of brilliance.

Another recent success, this time in the segment of bovine leather, is the Tex-Boarding Machine, a machine equipped with special cork rollers that soften the skin giving it a special effect, a kind of slightly creped parchment-like grain, which really pleases fashion brands.

S.F. Officina Meccanica 1930 also offers complete and constant assistance to its customers, through the supply of all the accessories and all the spare parts of the machinery Soldani and, at the request of the customer, is able to provide used overhauled machines.

Automation in the management of drum departments

There are still many stages in the drum departments for liming, tanning or dyeing operations where the operator must intervene manually in repetitive actions that are not without health risks. Moreover, these manual phases slow down the production cycle and represent a source of unforeseen events, which neither guarantee the repeatability of results nor the quality constancy.
