Press release – October 2011
New Divison – ARTIS GmbH, Division SANtec Automation in Viernheim, Germany.
MARPOSS S.p.A. (Bologna, ITALY) is proud to announce the acquisition of SANtec Automation of Viernheim, Germany through his affiliate ARTIS GmbH.

Existing SANtec personnel will be retained and the Company will operate as Division of ARTIS GmbH in the present location.

SANtec was created in 1998 by Mr. Wolfgang Sawicki, through a management buy-out of an existing division of Sandvik Automation, already active since almost 20 years in the field of automating and monitoring the machining production process.

His product range includes today innovative solutions such as:

  • Fine Boring Systems automatically driven through in-line gauging, for transfer lines and machining centres
  • Tool Monitoring Systems to detect tool wear, breakage and missing tool in the machining operations

In announcing the acquisition, MARPOSS President, Mr. Stefano Possati said: “SANtec products represent the perfect integration of MARPOSS strategy to provide the right solutions to Machine Tool Makers and End Users for the optimisation of machining processes. The acquisition of first class companies, with a market leading position in their sectors, is one of the keys of our strategy. After the acquisition of ARTIS GmbH, the worldwide leader in Tool and Machine Monitoring applications on cutting machine tools, this further investment confirm our commitment on this new and very promising sector for the Company growth. ARTIS GmbH was acquired at the end of 2008 and we are quite satisfied of their full integration in MARPOSS Worldwide Organisation. ARTIS has the perfect synergies to exploit through SANtec Products”.

MARPOSS is a world leader in inspection and process control technologies for a broad range of manufacturing industries.
The Company was established by Mario Possati in 1952. Since then, MARPOSS has provided shopfloor solutions incorporating a wide range of technologies including electronic, non-destructive (ND), optical and pneumatic, for measurement, leak test and process control of manufactured components to the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, energy and IT industries.

MARPOSS is leader in the inspection industry, with a strong and comprehensive organisation focused on R&D, Manufacturing, Sales&Marketing, Education and Training and After Sales Service.

4th Working group of the European “FoFdation” Project meet again to discuss machine tool and process parameters which affect lead times and surface quality in milling processes”.
Only one month after the successful Kick Off Meeting held in June, the 4th working group of the 10 M€ FOFdation project assembled again. This time to discuss which machine tool and process parameters affect lead times and surface quality in milling processes. It is the aim of the 4th working group to develop innovative technologies that will increase predictability in terms of surface quality and lead times.

During the discussions, over 100 parameters have been identified ranging from controller characteristic till the flow of coolant and machine tool stiffness. Each of them in their own right do influence lead time and surface quality, however one more than the other. Earlier discussions already made clear that the 4th Working group have set challenging objectives. According to Professor George Chryssolouris, EFFRA board member and Director of Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (LMS) at the University of Patras (GR): “Working group 4 of the FoFdation project is aiming high with their objectives. It is however reflecting the industrial needs and with having experienced partners as Delcam (UK) and ARTIS (D) leading the work promising progress can be made. Our Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation will provide all scientific and practical support that is needed to test initial outcomes in an early stage in order to come to the wanted results as quickly as possible”.

Other partners in this 4th Working group include CADCAMation (CH), Centro Ricerche FIAT (IT), ECN (F), ETHZ (CH), FIDIA (IT), and GF Agie Charmilles (CH).

In September 2011, members of this working group will be trained at Delcam’s HeadQuarter in Birmingham in using Delcam’s advanced manufacturing software package PowerMILL. This software will be the platform for integrating innovative algorithms compensating for the influence of the mentioned parameters on cutter paths. This will enable predictable outcomes in terms of surface quality and lead times. In October 2011, all work group partners will meet at ARTIS to be trained in the ARTIS products and to discuss the progress as to be made in the coming months.


This project is co-funded by the European Commission as part of the European Economic Recovery Plan (EERP) adopted in 2008. The EERP proposes the launch of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) in three sectors, one of them being Factories of the Future (FoF). Factories of the Future is a EUR 1.2 billion program in which the European Commission and industry are collaborating in research to support the development and innovation of new enabling technologies for the EU manufacturing sector.
