Founded in 1945, COLGAR initially produced machines for the sheet metal forming industry. The company has since evolved into an industry leader of automated CNC press brakes with capabilities up to 3000 tons and bending lengths up to 787 inches.
The company currently employs a staff of 210 between two plant locations. The main facility is located outside of Milan, Italy. At this plant the floor type HBM's are produced along with the very large press brakes (1000 - 3000 ton).
In 1970 COLGAR began producing hydrostatic HBM's, developing the machines in both table and floor types. These HBM's are equipped with large rotary tables that can be mounted on beds for additional movements. COLGAR specializes in the design and supply of various heads to produce part features in a single setup to maintain part geometric requirements. In addition to this all heads are equipped with automatic tool exchange.
The company earned the ISO 9001 certification in 1999 for its commitment to high quality product design and construction as well as dedicated customer support throughout the entire organization.
