The Cebora company was founded in Bologna, Italy by Emiliano Generali in 1954 and was originally named CEB (Bolognese Electromechanic Constructions).
The first production lines from Cebora were battery chargers and coated electrode welding machines. In 1958, an industrial castors division, ORA began producing castors and wheels for the industrial, home and office furnishing sectors.
The two divisions were merged in 1963 giving rise to the present day company Cebora. Later a sheet metal fabrication plant was added to the group thus giving Cebora the ability to fabricate it’s own metal cases and cabinets for it’s welding machines and battery chargers.
Cebora’s expansion continued throughout the 1960’s and the 1970’s. In the early 1980’s a new manufacturing plant was built on a 50,000 square metre site in Cadriando di Gransarola in Bologna. Presently, both the production and administrative functions are carried out at the site. The sheet metal fabrication plant has recently been equipped with the latest metal forming and painting processes to meet the demands of production.
In 1995 a new building was added to the Cadriano plant, bringing it’s total area to 52,000 square metres.
The two divisions: Welding and Industrial Castors, have a full organisational and operational independence. The Cebora group employs 200 people with an annual sales turnover in excess of 40 million Euros of which 70% of production is exported. All Cebora equipment is manufactured in Bologna, Italy in the European Union.
Over the years Cebora has invested heavily in research and development working alongside the University of Bologna to produce technology to meet high demands of the many new metals and alloys now produced. These new materials used in modern production are lighter and stronger but require new welding parameters and technologies.
In the MIG welding processes synergic, pulse double pulse and programmable equipment in many cases has become the norm in a wide variety of applications including the rapidly changing area of automotive production and the ever growing vehicle repair market.
Cebora has also invested heavily into the high quality plasma cutting market. A collaboration between the group for Industrial applications of Plasma’s of the University of Bologna and Cebora S.p.A has led to the development of world leading product with excellent high cut quality using various gases.
The manufacturing technology allows for quick replacement of the torch head and consumables suited to different materials, gases and thickness. Cebora has five patent applications that have already been submitted in regard to these developments.
This product coupled with a CNC cutting system provides cutting at speed with high cut quality that is required to reduce downtime and eliminate dressing and cleaning processes in today’s competitive marketplace.
Robotics is now a real consideration for those repetition jobs, where high number output is required. Over recent years Robotic cells have come to play an important part as new technology has made such units so affordable. Cebora have developed a range of ultra reliable welding equipment easily interfaced to work alongside all leading robot manufacturers offering consistent first class welds which is such an important factor for high production needs.
