It is with great pleasure that we present the new Cassioli website, completely renovated in graphics and updated with new and unpublished content.

Since the foundation of our company, innovation has been the engine that has allowed us to grow, to progress and to find cutting-edge solutions to better meet the needs of our customers.

It is for this reason that we thought that this innovation should also be represented by our website, a new portal, capable of best expressing what Cassioli is now, narrating its growth, its expansion in the world and the main sectors in which it operates.

From the Home page, it is possible to have a general overview of our company: the map allows you to view the headquarters and production sites, the subsidiaries and the most important commercial partners spread across the various continents.

The most important thing, however, is the presentation of the 5 Cassioli Divisions, the main areas in which Cassioli operates. Compared to the previous site, mainly centered on intralogistics and manufacturing, our original core business, the new site presents airport, tire and service divisions, with dedicated sections that explain in detail the main aspects and systems.

Clear, exhaustive, with a user friendly navigation, as well as aesthetically appealing.

The layout chosen to represent the new Cassioli reality is modern and strong impacting, with large images and short descriptions: technical characteristics and more informations can be found downloading the related brochure.

There is also space for the Cassioli story, the softwares internally developed, the News and the “Work with Us” section.

The new Cassioli site is already available in Italian, in English and Portuguese: the other two sites in Polish and Spanish will soon be available.

A new ATRS line with the ActivePure® device for sanitizing hand luggage trays has been installed

Cassioli, always looking for innovative and cutting-edge solutions to best meet the needs of the market, on the occasion of the last year’s health emergency, promptly worked to find an effective solution in order to minimize the presence of viruses and bacteria inside airports.

Thanks to the collaboration with major universities, companies and study centers throughout Italy and beyond, our company has experimented various sanitizing methods within its production plants, subjecting them to important laboratory tests to verify their effectiveness.

One of these methods was selected by Turin-Caselle Airport for the new ATRS line, whose works began in mid-September and will be completed by the end of 2020.

The new Fast2Check Continuous Cleaning by Cassioli have been studied and tested in collaboration with MDS Srl, a company specialized in products and devices for environmental sanitation, which exploiting the innovative ActivePure® technology will allow to continuously sanitize the trays of carry-on baggage during security checks.

The trays used for objects and hand luggage during security checks will undergo a continuous sanitization process, thanks to a state-of-the-art system that will purify both the air during recirculation and the surface of the trays itself from viruses and bacteria.The ActivePure® sanitation technology installed inside Fast2Check Continuous Cleaning combines three different sanitization processes: air purification with forced air, sterilization with ozone-free UVC rays and the continuous release of 0.02 ppm hydrogen peroxide. This process allows a sanitation capacity up to 90% in a few seconds.The effectiveness of ActivePure® has been proven by several independent studies and tests and by the action demonstrated against bacteria, viruses, molds, dust and fungi in the air and on surfaces. The ActivePure® disinfection technology has also the advantage of being a 100% natural sanitation process, safe for humans because it is chemical-free and designated a Certified Space Technology by the Space Foundation.Another novelty introduced in Cassioli’s Fast2Check Continuous Cleaning will concern the design, completely renewed and integrated with plexiglass to facilitate spacing and better separate one passenger from another during check-in and, in particular, at the time of luggage storage inside the trays.

 

A modern and completely renovated space with new furnishings and a new management system

Cassioli, which has always been very devoted to environmental protection and the well-being of its employees, is preparing to inaugurate the new company canteen, which will be inside the recently built production plant and was started and completed in less than a year, despite the interruption of work due to COVID-19.

The new canteen will be a completely renovated environment, both in terms of furniture and company philosophy, increasingly oriented to reducing waste and, in particular, the use of single-use plastic. Cassioli’s commitment to environmental protection had already started a few years ago with the separate collection of paper, plastic and cardboard both inside the offices and in production. In recent months, however, plastic has been gradually eliminated from coffee and hot beverage vending machines and replaced with compostable paper cups and biodegradable stir sticks.

In other words, no more plastic coffee cups, but it doesn’t end there.

The biggest change in the new canteen will be the complete elimination of disposable plastic tableware, which will be replaced by ceramic plates and steel cutlery. Plastic bottles will be replaced by reusable stainless steel bottles, given to each employee by the company. The water bottles let people get water from the water fountains located in various parts of the building and will drastically reduce waste.

The restyling of the rooms has combined image, ecology and comfort, focusing on offering a lunch break in a pleasant, beautiful and modern environment.

With the new canteen comes a new way to reserve meals, which will be completely digitized thanks to special software designed internally by our developers. Each employee will be allowed to access and exit the premises by using their badge.

The canteen spaces, which are completely new and improved both from an aesthetic and functional standpoint, have been designed following the health guidelines for the prevention of COVID-19 contagion. The seating at the tables will be more than one meter apart, and plexiglass will be installed to divide one diner from the next. An important innovation will be the Krion tabletops, a cutting-edge material that can be easily sanitized with disposable sanitizing wipes once the meal has been eaten.

Canteen shifts will be extended to avoid overcrowding and to make it easier to maintain safe distancing.

To promote energy savings and increase the share of electricity from renewable sources, photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof of the new industrial shed, with a latest generation system that will produce clean energy with low environmental impact.

“Our company has invested enthusiastically in the new canteen, a renovated space for employees, but also the beginning of a sustainability project that aims at reducing the use of plastics, which is currently a huge problem for the global ecosystem”, commented CEO Carlo Cassioli. “It is a small gesture which we hope will also be an example that will spread the culture of respect for the environment that surrounds us, a precious resource for all of us and for generations to come”.

Once again, Cassioli has confirmed the high standards offered to its employees in terms of quality, safety and innovation, providing a state-of-the-art environment, served by a digital reservation system that guarantees flexibility and optimal time management.

The very decision to eliminate plastic tableware and containers was an important initiative, capable of looking to the future and, in this way, also preceding the European directive that requires a ban on single-use plastics by 2021.

The new Smiths Detection X-ray machine will ensure greater security and streamlined check-in procedures

Cassioli has recently completed the installation of a new Fast2Check ATRS line for passenger check-in at Rome Fiumicino International Airport.

A big step forward for our company and for security procedures, thanks to integration with the innovative X-ray machine produced by Smiths Detection. The distinctive trait of this cutting-edge system lies in the three-dimensional scanning technology of this X-ray equipment, certified in accordance with “C3” regulations, which, compared to traditional systems, will allow passengers to carry out the usual inspection procedures without having to take anything out of their hand luggage.

But let’s take a closer look at the features of this new X-ray technology.

During security checks, airport staff usually ask passengers to remove objects such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops and liquids from bags and trolleys, as well as anything else that they consider “unsuitable” for automatic identification and control with traditional X-ray machines.

The new Smiths Detection X-ray, with computed tomography technology, is able to inspect these types of objects even when they are inside hand luggage. The result is a substantial streamlining of security procedures because passenger procedures are faster due to the considerable time savings that can be achieved by not having to remove objects before going through the machine and then having to replace them inside bags at the end of the security check.

All this, with a substantial increase in security, thanks to the more effective threat detection capability of these new devices.

An important innovation for Cassioli that is completing the first installation of this new system at the airport in Rome and the first standard 3 X-ray integrated with a Fast2Check.

FAST2CHECK EASY will allow significant streamlining of hand-luggage checks

Venice’s Marco Polo Airport has chosen the new FAST2CHECK EASY solution to increase capacity and optimize security procedures at passenger checking areas.

Effective handling and screening of hand luggage is a top priority for airports the world over. Luggage must be moved, handled and checked with precision, speed and security.

CASSIOLI Airport Division offers specific automatic systems both for the handling and sorting of checked baggage and for hand-luggage inspection systems. Control lines must ensure not only efficiency in terms of security, but also process speed and ergonomics for passengers and operators.

FAST2CHECK EASY satisfies all of these needs and space is the critical factor in increasing performance stats and security processes.

Following previous installations in the airports of Rome Fiumicino, Naples, Florence, Bologna, Madrid, Seville and Santiago, at Marco Polo airport Cassioli will install this innovative system for hand-luggage checking that, in addition to ensuring high security standards, will optimize space and speed up the flow of passengers.

How? A new tray-recirculation and management system, specially developed to meet flow-optimization requirements, FAST2CHECK EASY represents the ideal solution for airports with particularly limited space. Most tray-recirculation systems on the market need an area between 16 and 20 metres to ensure significant increases in flow and performance.

Cassioli FAST2CHECK EASY allows airports to benefit from the advantages of parallel and simultaneous management of up to 4 passengers, with a total length of less than 12 metres.

Venice’s Marco Polo airport, with seven new Cassioli lines, aims to manage the expected increase in traffic over the next two years, awaiting the new terminal, which will meet the impressive development plans of the third most important airport in Italy.

 

The Italian leg of the Michelin Le Mans Cup took place on Saturday in Monza. This was one of a series of international endurance car races inspired by the 24 Hours of Le Mans and organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO).

Cassioli will be present all season long for this prestigious competition alongside with the DKR Engineering team, winner of the last two seasons, and its two drivers, Marco Cencetti and Marcello Marateotto, who yesterday finished the race in fifth place.

The Michelin Le Mans Cup was created in 2016, through the efforts of ACO, the creator of this new competition which takes place over six rounds, with drivers and teams from all over the world competing for the title in ten GT3 class prototypes and 21 LMP3 class cars.

Five of the six events will be held alongside the European Le Mans Series while the Road to Le Mans will be the highlight of the season.

The Road to Le Mans will be the next stage in June, where teams and drivers will compete in two 55-minute races at the 14 km La Sarthe circuit, with the second race held on the morning of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the only opportunity in the world for GT3 and LMP3 competitors to compete in front of 250,000 motorsport enthusiasts.

Cassioli will accompany and support the team during all 6 instalments at the European level with its logo on the official clothing of the two drivers and the livery of the Norma M 30 Nissan that the two drivers will race in. This partnership confirms the great passion, drive and commitment of the company in supporting a dynamic and challenging sport such as motor racing which, like the Cassioli brand, is founded on strong and natural values, such as loyalty, courage, enthusiasm and healthy competition.

So let’s wish the best of luck to the DKR Engineering team and its drivers for the next stage of the championship, the “Road To Le Mans 2019”, which will take place on the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans from 13 to 15 June 2019.

 

 

Cassioli has contributed to creation of the Arctic household appliances factory in Ulmi, Romania, which has recently obtained the prestigious recognition of the World Economic Forum as a model for application of Industry 4.0 principles.

The World Economic Forum announced the addition of 10 new factories to its global Lighthouse network, a community of manufacturers who are demonstrating strong leadership in applying the technologies of the fourth industrial revolution to generate financial and operational impacts.

The factories join a network of 16 existing lighthouses in several areas around the world. These serve as beacons to guide other enterprises through the challenges of upgrading systems and applying cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, big-data analysis and 3D printing. Factories were selected based on their success in integrating these technologies to increase efficiency and drive innovation.

Since 2002, when the majority shareholding was acquired by the Arçelik group, Arctic has become the largest producer of household appliances in continental Europe, above all thanks to the substantial investments made in implementation of new technologies and modern production-management systems, which have made it possible to significantly increase the production capacity of the Găești facility.

Cassioli, responsible for realization of automated warehouses for the storage of raw materials and finished products at Arctic’s Romanian plant, as well as assembly lines for washing machines, is pleased to share this important international recognition with Arctic.

At the Ulmi plant, our company has installed automatic systems for the storage of the four main components that make up the washing machines, i.e. outer drums, doors, inner drums and casings. All of these components, once manufactured and checked at the testing islands, are transferred by special conveyors and SLS automatic vehicles to the warehouse.

In addition to the storage of these four components, Cassioli has also created special lines and automatic systems for handling and storage of the other components required for assembly of the washing machines.

Components arriving from the suppliers are transferred by conveyors to the warehouse and from there transported via RGV shuttles to 84 dropping points, where the operators receive the assembly materials.

From an Industry 4.0 perspective, the Arctic plant in Ulmi represents a perfect example of fully digitalized industry, where all processes are interconnected, respecting the technology and automation principles that characterise the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

All processes take place completely automatically, with man-machine interfaces that provide real-time information to operators on current processes, thus increasing production efficiency and minimizing the risk of errors.

The plant has been designed twice as fast as the previous-generation factories and, since its creation, automation of low-value tasks has reduced operating costs by 11%.The 10 companies selected, including giants such as Ford, Nokia and Renault, were chosen on the basis of their success in integrating the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to increase production efficiency and drive innovation.

 

The Cassioli Group, whose logo has featured on the Block Devils uniforms throughout the 2018/2019 season, has renewed its sponsorship of the Perugia team for next year.

The SIR Safety Conad Perugia volleyball team, a leading force in the Italian volleyball scene with its victory in the Italian Supercoppa league in 2017 and the Coppa Italia in 2019, enters the new season with great ambitions.

With Mr Sirci as Chairman, and having recently announced the arrival of Belgian Fons Vranken as a new coach, the team is ready to face a flurry of matches with grit and determination in the Serie A volleyball league and beyond.

Led by coach Fons Vranken, Sir Safety Perugia Volley has already set the first day of training immediately after the summer holidays: from Thursday 22 August, the players will meet at the PalaBarton in Pian di Massiano to start their preparations.

The Cassioli Group, a partner of SIR Safety System for many years now for workwear and safety clothing for its employees, will stand alongside the Block Devils with sponsorship branding on LEDs on the sidelines and the t-shirts which players will wear on the court. The Cassioli logo will feature on the shoulders of the SIR Safety Perugia players throughout the 2019/2020 season.

All that remains is for us to wish the team all the best, confident that this will be a season full of victories and satisfaction.

The new collaboration between Cassioli and ACF Fiorentina begins with the start of the 2019/2020 championship. Thanks to the agreement recently signed between the owners and the commercial department of the Florentine football team, Cassioli will become a Local Partner Sponsor for the season starting at the end of August 2019.

 

Strongly rooted in Tuscany, yet with a strong international outlook, Cassioli has taken the partnership with the Florentine team as an important opportunity to promote its identity, significantly reinforcing its visibility at a national level and beyond.

 

Long-standing supporters and huge football fans, the Owners share important values with the sport, such as teamwork, a sense of belonging and the nurturing of young talent and potential, which they have always strongly believed in. The partnership with ACF Fiorentina confirms Cassioli’s commitment to the sporting world, already nurtured over the years through sponsorship of volleyball and motor-racing teams.

 

Cassioli’s branding activity as a local partner of AFC Fiorentina will include displaying the company logo during all home matches, both in the Serie A Championship and the Coppa Italia, using LED walls on the sidelines in the first and second row. The Cassioli brand will also sit among the most important sponsors on the official website of the Florentine team and participate in official events that the Club organizes during the season.

 

With over a million fans and the number of ticket holders already exceeding sixteen thousand, the Florentine team is ready for the new season, strengthened by the renewed ownership led by Rocco Commisso and the confirmation of Vincenzo Montella as technical director.

 

The Cassioli Group is therefore set to take to the pitch alongside ACF Fiorentina, right from the first league match to be played in Florence on 24 August, where the team, winners of 2 Scudetti, 6 Coppa Italia, a Cup Winners’ Cup and a Supercoppa Italiana, will face a Naples team led by Carlo Ancelotti.

Two days of intensive activity were spent in Rome for the “Walking together” event organized by Interroll in the Italian capital on 3 and 4 September. Cassioli, Interroll’s partner for many years, took part in the summit with meetings, workshops and one-to-ones that provided important insights, as well as meeting new professionals and companies in the sector.

The event, which took place at the beautiful Hotel Cavalieri in Rome, involved 70 companies from all over the world, all protagonists in the field of automation.

The event included alternated debates, conferences, speeches and workshops focusing on sharing ideas and opinions on the opportunities, challenges and new growth prospects for the event, looking at issues such as innovation, digitization and new frontiers of industrial automation.

Introduced by Interroll’s CEO Paul Zumbühl, the event continued with the thoughts of Bart Friederichs – CEO of TBWB, and Richard Nepgen – Managing Director of Neptek, who spoke about their partnership after meeting at the ROI Global Summit in 2017.

Yan Lefort, Sales Director of Sauber Motorsport AG and Christoph Reinkemeier and Jens Strüwing from Interroll, spoke about the new growth challenges, both for individual companies and for the Global Summit itself, which over the years has always confirmed its status as an important platform for sharing and a business opportunity for all participants.

There was no shortage of time dedicated to human resources, talent development and thinking outside the box, the fundamental principals of which were illustrated by Anders Indset, business philosopher, and Shivvy Jervis, tech futurist and broadcaster.

The Global Summit in Rome was played a key role in the long-term programme strongly pursued and supported by Interroll.

The resulting in-depth and open exchange of experiences was not exclusively aimed at the conclusion of commercial agreements, but first and foremost at creating a community of professionals and companies for the development and growth of the industrial automation sector, where Cassioli has always been a leading player and a strong supporter.
