Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario operates from over 30 years in the field of precision machining. It was exactly born in 1974 from the passion of its founder as handicraft workshop in Altare (in Savona hinterland), where all its organization business departments are located.

The facilities owned area , is carried out in about 4.000 sq. meters including the administrative and commercial offices, the technical section of engineering, the production shop, the testing and quality control area, the stores of stocking for the raw materials, the semifinished products and the end-products area.

During the early years, Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario gradually abandoned the identity of artisan company that characterized its initial steps to eventually become a solid and dynamic company. The company currently operates in various fields of high technological content.

The management considers engineering a really important component in the activity because it represents an essential tool in the daily work. The technical department has been provided with advanced programs of 3D digital prototyping that consents to display, simulate and trace the functioning of projects in actual conditions before their realization primarily in MOULDS field.


Know-how, reliability, professionalism and quality service have contributed to a rapid development of the company which always keeps pace with the latest technologies. Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario is able to satisfy more different requirements in his own sectors of competence, always assuring an high and qualitative reliability level.

The working staff systematically follows training courses and seminars of formation and has reached a competence that allows the firm to take technical challenges in several fields.


The drawings provided to Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario by the CUSTOMER, are analyzed by the Commercial Department together with the Technical Department, in order to respond promptly to customers’ demands. Product engineering is fully carried out in-house.

The Technical Department is equipped with a CAD/CAM 3D modelling system and provided with modern equipments and computer software for kinematic simulation .The machining programs through the simulation technique, are thus able to prepare a digital prototype only starting from a mathematical model.


Our technical staff is even able to develop projects according to the CUSTOMER idea working together in perfect harmony to carry out the plan.

The powerful system allows also a great optimization of working flows by computer software, passing from planning phase to the production.

Main drawings software used:

  • Autodesk® Inventor™
  • AutoCAD®
  • VISI-Modelling – Machining 3D

File extension IGES, STEP, DXF, DWG, IPT,IDW,IAM and more.

The ability of the operators and the use of the CAD/CAM technologies, guarantee a strong synergy among the Technical Office and the workshop. Thanks to the high experience in the study of tool routes on complex surfaces, the firm is today capable of managing the planning and the production of high quality MOULDS as well.

Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario has also realized a metrological area in a constant temperature room for the control and monitoring of materials and components, using the better manual tools and a computerized 3D measure machine TESA ,with possibility to release the auto certification for the final product.



In the last years Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario has reserved particular attention to the field of MOULDS for the processing of plastic articles.

The high specialization skills, allows the company to introduce itself as a supplier able to implement CUSTOMER needs in every production step, from engineering planning to final testing.

The technical office is provided with advanced systems for the 2D and 3D planning and is equipped with programs for rapid prototyping. The wise use of these advanced tools of elaboration with 3D modeling, allows to create digital prototypes avoiding any slips.

Using these up- to- date technology, Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario consents his CUSTOMERS to realize varied and complex forms with guarantee of elevated quality and rapidity of execution.

Our production covers different fields of application and particular attention is given to those customers with specific requirements, that need a “custom-made” product.

The appointment and the notable experience of the staff allow Officina Meccanica Cagnone Mario to solve any technical and production problem and the skill in planning and in construction, ensures a very reliable and competitive cost of the end product also in emergency situation.


The company is provided with always up-to-dated machines to operate in various fields such as:

  • Milling
  • Turning
  • Drilling
  • Cutting
  • Grinding
  • Plunge spark erosion
  • Moulds



Multinational group world leader in the supply of forming machines and accessories for the hollow glass industry.


Design, production and marketing of systems for the selection of metal and plastic parts.
