Fadis offers precision winding machines
Fadis SpA - a typical Italian family
company, founded by the grandfather Giuseppe Carabelli with his
friend Armando Canton in 1960. Today the four siblings Raffaella,
Giuseppe, Debora and Elena Carabelli with Wanda Canton are the
“driving forces” of the company.
In the past five-year period, sales have
increased to staggering numbers: +80% with over 30 million
turnover in 2018 can be attributed to the choices made by Fadis
in the past. First of all, investments in R&D and innovations of
the production itself in 4.0 key. The company currently invests
6% of annual revenues to upgrade its machinery for higher
performance and more flexible production, and also creates new
machines by anticipating the needs of its domestic and
The machine planning has been organized on
an open platform system. All machinery models have been
optimised to make them adaptable to the individual textile
sectors, from upholstery to hosiery, from shirting to knitwear,
from medical to high-performance technical yarns to carpets.
Over time, the Fadis production line has
been enriched with other lines related to the evolution of
synthetic yarns, such as cops winding and air texturization. To
choose the complete Fadis cycle, from beginning to the end
offers a great advantage: Fadis becomes the reference partner,
to advise and customise the right machines to resolve all the
Flexibility and internationalisation are
two of Fadis’ strategic pillars. On average, the company exports
93% of its production to 70 countries, offering also wide-spread
after-sales assistance. It has representative offices and
several after-sales assistance offices in many countries,
including the possibility of activating a remote emergency
assistance system directly from the company’s headquarters.
Fadis has invested in sustainability, both
through the “Sustainable Technologies Project” promoted by
Acimit to make textile machinery increasingly eco-sustainable
and by installing a photovoltaic system giving an annual energy
production of 650 thousand kilowatts, reducing the carbon
footprint equal to 11.6 tons.
Furthermore, Fadis has completely
reorganised its production premises, logistics and internal
organisation in the light of Industry 4.0.

Fadis has invested in the reorganisation
of the production processes by changing all the handling and
storage logistics through 11 automated warehouses, all
interconnected with the company’s computer systems. It invested
in mechanical processing by buying new state-of-the-art tooling
and robotic machinery. Thanks to this decision, Fadis has
brought back inside all the mechanical processing that has
guaranteed the flexibility necessary to swiftly adept to market
changes and meet customers’ needs.
Fadis not only underwent a reorganisation,
but also developed a communication software (FID) for its
winders that allows the interconnection of the information
systems of the customer to the machines, so as to send and
receive back data of the production carried out.
As other challenges are emerging, Fadis
will continue to work on both products and company organization
so as to seize the continuing opportunities offered by Industry
4.0. This is an ambitious challenge and a new revolution that
will change the world of production.
