Lca Ballauri is now 40 years old: four decades of challenges for a small, but solid business, with the capacity to diversify into various sectors and gain a solid standing. Its sights are always set on the future, but its roots are well planted in a past firmly holding the Ballauri family to its enterprise as time passed. It began in 1975, in Rivoli, at the gates to Torino with the object of making super8 sound film projectors. Today, the story continues at Grugliasco where, in an area covering 1,800 square metres, they produce complex components for underground, passenger and high speed trains. Specifically they produce sensors for the principal parameters (speed, temperature and vibrations) with relative “box-bogie” connection systems that guarantee the safety of train bogies, as well as the led lighting systems in the cabins of the new FrecciaRossa 1000 train. “After working in the car sector with Magneti Marelli and Valeo – explains Ugo Ballauri, founder of the business – making car components, including the Ferrari’s rearvision mirror, at the end of the 80’s we started working with Riv-Skf in the railway sector, and have become regular contractors. We started with the first Pendolini, the Etr450 fast trains. Apart from sensors for bogies, also made for the regional Minuetto train model, we are now engaged with the led lighting system in the Frecciarossa 1000 driver’s cabin and relative speed and temperature sensors on the bogies”.
