Atom’s production of cutting machines began over 65 years ago, initially designed to support the cutting needs of companies in the Vigevano footwear district. Their first products were specialized in the cutting of leather hides and it was challenging to use them for cutting materials with different properties. Over the years, they differentiated their production and versatility of their cutting systems to meet the cutting demands of diversified market sectors. Atom’s commitment in providing cutting solutions for an ever growing number of industries drove their engineers to design machinery able to cut a variety of materials. Products which throughout the years, as a result of continued investment in research and development, moved from the consolidated die cutting presses to the recent prestigious automatic oscillating knife cutting systems.
The ATOM FlashCut dieless knife cutting table represents the company’s capacity to capture the latest innovations in the market and of the most up-to-date customers. ATOM is in fact, without any doubt, the world leader in soft and semi-rigid material cutting technology, from its reference market – footwear and leather goods – to gaskets, foams, plastic materials, composites, technical textiles, and … many others.
After nearly 45 years of collaboration, ATOM SpA and MSC joined forces in 2006 to further develop and expand the North American market for industrial applications. This joint venture, ATOM-MSC USA, represents the common vehicle of collaboration for servicing the industrial market, giving their customers the opportunity to leverage on the direct presence of ATOM side by side with M.S.C. in the North American territory to support its commercial offers.

FEBA was born in 1968 as a sole trader in the city of Busto Arsizio (Varese, Lombardy), an important industrial and manufacturing region in northern Italy since the 19th century. The first machines were designed and produced for the local market, but FEBA soon established itself overseas through export sales in the 1980s.
Their production includes fully automatic electronic lathe slitting systems (single & multi-shafted), slitters-rewinders, semi-automatic & fully automatic log winders, packaging machines, sawing machines for protection films & specialty laminating systems. FEBA also designs special machines to “keep in touch” with the new materials to convert.
Sales where increased all around the world and in 1990 a new plant was opened in Bienate (in the province of Milan), where a team of qualified staff designs, produces and tests all the products, installation and training to the final customer. Shortly afterwards FEBA began the cooperation with the current UK-agent (Eurograv Ltd.) and North American-agent (Manufacturers Supplies Co.) as well as France (Dorey), which gave the possibility to increase their range of machines, cover a larger market sector and improve customer assistance.
The ability to supply custom converting systems and tailored engineered solutions to meet the customer’s specific requirements is what makes FEBA a leader in converting machinery market.
