FIDIA S.p.A. is a leading Italian manufacturer of machine tools. FIDIA designs, manufactures and sells Numerical Controls, High Speed Milling Systems and Flexible Manufacturing System for the production of complex parts and shapes mainly for the automotive, aerospace and energy sectors.
Established in Turin in 1974, FIDIA started by designing
and producing Numerical Controls for the management of sophisticated machine tools for mould machining and only in the early nineties Fidia expanded its activity by developing the first high speed milling machines. Up to now 2/3 of Fidia’s turnover comes from this business line. With three industrial sites in Italy, one Joint Venture in China and eight Subsidiaries overseas, the FIDIA Group employs ~330 people.
In nearly forty years of activity FIDIA has never abandoned
its strong vocation for innovation in all its technologic fields: software, electronics and mechanics. In fact, the investments in research and development are never below 10 % of its turnover.
In the wide range of companies manufacturing machine tools, FIDIA is one of the few that still keep the design and development internally for all the machine sub-systems. In fact FIDIA design (and then produces/assembles): mechanical structure, rotary milling heads, rotary milling tables, electronic drives (both digital control logic and power electronic switching boards), Numerical Control (case, proprietary real-time board, proprietary control SW and GUI SW), tools and devices for compensating and calibrating the machine as well as auxiliary tools such as anti- collision, machine monitoring and 3+2 CAD/CAM. Up to now, FIDIA operates in two leading sectors, automotive and aerospace, and provides high quality and customisable machines and equipment that can fulfil the most sophisticated needs in precision and productivity.
