R.F. PINTOSSI Srl of Passirano, in the province of Brescia, is specialised in the production of carbide tools used in the drawing of cables, wires, bars and tubes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Since 1970, when the company started, R.F. has been producing Shaving Dies in tungsten carbide (hard metal) to be used in the shaving of welding wires in aluminium and aluminium alloys.
When Sergio Pintossi joined the company in 1978 as a partner, sole director and Production Manager, R.F. was transformed into the present company R.F. PINTOSSI S.r.l.. R.F. PINTOSSI S.r.l., which is dedicated and specialised in the production of tungsten carbide Shaving Dies to be used for shaving welding wires of a wide range of metals among which aluminium wires, aluminium alloys, phosphor bronze, copper alloys, stainless steel, high carbon steel, iron-nickel, zinc coated wires and other metals.
For several years now, R.F. PINTOSSI S.r.l. has been implementing a progressive and continuous investment plan in CNC machinery and technologically advanced equipment, together with a planned programme of periodic maintenance, aimed at maintaining the quality and reliability of its machinery over time.
R.F. PINTOSSI S.r.l. specialises in machining hard metal parts such as grinding, wire EDM, turning, mirror lapping, PVD and CVD coatings.
The company policy of R.F. PINTOSSI Srl of Passirano, in the province of Brescia, is based on the development of machinery, the training of personnel, the search for suppliers and raw materials of a high professional and qualitative level. This has allowed the company to raise the quality standards of its products, becoming a leader both in Italy and abroad in the production of Shaving Dies.
Production staff are constantly undergoing in-house training programmes, acquiring know-how that is continuously developed and updated to meet the company's actual technical requirements.
For over 50 years, we have been producing tungsten carbide Shaving Dies, with holes ranging from ø 0.80 mm to ø 15.00 mm and beyond. The Shaving Die is used in the wire drawing industry for shaving welding wires and wire rods.
We manufacture adjustable dies for drawing, both traditional with blocks or dowels and special ones with shoulders or saddles. The adjustable die is manufactured in various sizes, depending on the section to be drawn, with a hard metal core.
Tungsten carbide nozzles for sandblasting and shotblasting machines are produced in air and sand, solid or jacketed versions, and are used as spare parts for many sandblasting machine models.
