Sassi gearbox motor
Elevator gearboxes made in Italy have been very popular for many years. Undoubtedly, the flagship of these engines in terms of quality and popularity is Alberto Sassi of Italy. Alberto Sassi has become one of the top manufacturers of elevator gearbox motors in the world for many years, focusing on technology and generalizing this important in all its products. This elevator gearbox motor is used in towers, office, commercial and high-traffic units due to its high efficiency, superior quality of raw materials, variety of speed and power.
In 1946, after the devastation of World War II in Italy, when the reconstruction of industry in Italy was taking shape and growing, Mr. Alberto Sassi began to produce elevator equipment, especially the production of gearbox motors for elevators.
After signing a contract to build an elevator motor, Alberto Sassi started with the only machine in the factory that was made of glass. Alberto Sassi started a strange job but he had a big dream, to help rebuild Italy destroyed in World War II.
The Italian company Sassi became a joint stock company in 1961, after which the sales office and production line of the Italian Sassi engine moved to the Crespellano area on the outskirts of Bologna.
In 1965, Alberto Sassi, the only manufacturer of electric motors in Europe, began producing electric motors for use in elevator gearbox motors.
To declare power and become one of the world leaders in the elevator industry in Europe and the world, Alberto Sassi built a 30-meter-high test tower in 1982 to test new products, including the gearbox motor, in the factory.
In 1995, Alberto Sassi of Italy acquired two large electronics companies, SMS Sistemi and Microsistemi s.r.l, and transferred its electronics division, which had been established in the early 1980s.
In 1996, the Italian chassis gearbox engine achieved UNI EN ISO 9001 certification to improve its global quality more than before. In the same year, Alberto Sassi of Italy increased its production capacity of electric motors by buying a majority stake in Gibierre S.r.l.
In order to simplify its management structure, Alberto Sassi Italy decided to separate the production and sales activities of the Italian Sassi gearbox engine from the company’s real estate and other investments. To achieve this, Sassi Italy established a holding company called SASSI HOLDING in 2000.
Following the needs of the market and past technical experience, Alberto Sassi introduced the chameleon (chamaLEOn) chassis gearbox engine in 2000. This gearbox engine, abbreviated as LEO, has been the most popular and best-selling chassis engine in recent years.
2000 was a busy and successful year for Alberto Sassi of Italy. In June of this year, Sassi Holding took control of SLS Sassi Lift Systems L.t.d, a UK-based trading company.
In 2001, Alberto Sassi acquired the Spanish company FAYMESA S.L., a major manufacturer of elevator gearbox motors, and in the following years the company manufactured and marketed its gearboxes under the Alberto Sassi license.
On March 26, 2002, Alberto Sassi’s Italian quality management system, which had existed since 1996, achieved the great TÜV standard.
In 2004, the technology-oriented family of Italian Sassi products found a new member. The new member of this family was the Italian Sassi gearless engine, the whole design and production process of which was done in the Sassi factory in Italy.
In 2007, in order to increase the production capacity of the Sassi gear motor, Sassi Italy first opened several industrial buildings next to its old factory, and then succeeded in acquiring the entire shares of Gibierre.
To meet the needs of its products in the elevator industry, Sassi Italy, in 2008 a new industrial building with an area of 1500 square meters close to existing buildings was built to accommodate advanced machinery to expand the Sassi Italian production line.
In March 2010, the Spanish company Faymesa was renamed ALBERTO SASSI ESPANA SL. This change was made due to the implementation of the most comprehensive production processes and quality controls required by Alberto Sassi so that there is no quality difference between Sassi Italian and Sassi Spain products.
The development of Italian chassis will not stop, and in order to increase the production of chassis engines, in 2016 the old factory will be moved from the San Cesario region to other chassis factories in Bologna and a new industrial building of 3000 square meters will be built next to the factory.
At present, Alberto Sassi of Italy has expanded into an area of more than 18,000 square meters, including 4 production factories and 170 people, including managers, employees and workers. Sassi Holding is a group of 4 companies active in the elevator industry with a history of more than 70 years.
Italian Sassi gearbox motor in 2 types of AC2 and VVVF motors with a capacity of 6 to 21 people and a speed of 1 to 2 meters per second, is imported to Iran by the Fotros Engineering and Trading Group and is marketed under the 2-year golden warranty of the Fotros Group.
Existing models of chassis gearbox
At present, the chassis gearbox motor is offered in 5 (TORO, LEO, MODY, MF84, MF48) models with specified capacity and speeds.
