In 1947 Mr. Alberto Bocca, “ingenious inventor and agile maker” sets up a workshop to make machinery for the Italian shoe factories to which he gave the name of “SAGITTA“ (Latin name of the arrow): synonymous of speed and precision.
Sagitta soon rises to a prominent position and makes a decisive contribution to the development of the Italian shoe industry.
During the year 1959 Mr. Bocca met Mr. Rolf Schlicht an ingenious graduate chemist, which he founded in the same year ROLF SCHLICHT GmbH with very close contacts to the rubber and cable industry.
Together with Rolf Schlicht SAGITTA has developed the first band granulators.
This encounter lays the foundation for the success of the brand SAGITTA.
Even today, SAGITTA is closely associated with ROLF SCHLICHT.
SAGITTA Band Granulators are machines for the production of uniform cube-shaped granulated material.
The technology and the great precision of the SAGITTA machines allow to obtain a very positive feedback from the users.
Sagitta Band Granulators have been used for more than 60 years in various production processes by the most important industries.
