The chain to be machined with excellent results needs to be calibrated. With the first diamond engagement tests on the chains, the first technological problems are highlighted.

 

The calibration

It is from this need that the idea of making a tapping machine for chain is born

The chain locking sistem by means of a vice made up of two disks, is introduced for the first time. The continuous search for a product of ever increasing quality encourages Mr. Roberto to develop a 2-head vertical diamond spindle with spindles of very high precision, conform to perfectly mirror speckled surfaces on all types of chain.

The first logo O.M.P.A.R., which identifies and makes the product recognizable throughout the world, is born.

It is during this period that Mr. Roberto decides to develop a universal diamond cutting machine with 2-head (vertical-horizontal) and with features that make it suitable for performing any kind of decoration on jewelery objects.

The precision of mechanical machining, the large dimensions of the cross-table as well as the wide range of accessories, give this machine the qualities of great versatility of use.

 

The change of the guard in technical department

There is the introduction of the electronic component applied to the already established mechanical precision.

This marriage is developed and improved over the years, until it reaches the quality standard of our day.
