In 1965, S.A.M.P. enters the market of non-ferrous material (copper, aluminum and alloys). The use of these materials is massive in particular in the power and transportation industry. Moreover, these years are marked by the expansion of the home appliance industry market, which uses these materials extensively. The home appliance industry has stringent requirements in terms of reliability, safety and connectivity that all cable manufacturing companies shall comply with. In this scenario, Sampsistemi with its solid experience in the wire drawing sectors starts designing and manufacturing ad hoc wire drawing machineries.


1950 S.A.M.P. Samputensili

While SAMP (S.A.M.P.) consolidates its leader position on the market of the wire drawing machinery, Samputensili starts its geographical expansion with its first commercial office abroad. In 1952, Samputensili opens an office in Germany as a result of the strong demand from the automotive industry of reliable precision gears.



During the Second World War  SAMP (S.A.M.P.) supplies, the Italian air force with precision gears, but the demanding quality requirements forces the Company to produce his own high-precision tools. During these years, the manufacture of shaven and ground cylindrical gears as well as lapped bevel gears continues to expand to support the growing market demand of wire drawing machines. The request for precision and reliability is high, therefore S.A.M.P. decides to start developing its own tool grinding machinery and checking instruments, manufacturing equipment that set the standard at those times. In 1949, S.A.M.P. establishes Samputensili, an ad hoc structure and trademark through which to trade these products.

Birth of S.A.M.P.

1936 Gaetano Maccaferri SAMP

In 1936 Gaetano Maccaferri started out with a small workshop for the production of wire machinery calling his company S.A.M.P. which translates from the Italian as “Company for Precision Metalworking”. The starting production is mainly focused on steel wire drawing machinery, looms for weaving metallic meshes and general mechanical parts. However, since it is difficult to find good quality gears on the market at that time, the young company starts manufacturing its own gears.
