About Italpresse Gauss, Die Casting Manufacturer

Comfortable casting technology

Proven performance at your side since 1969 

In 1969, man conquered the Moon, Satyricon by Federico Fellini hit the cinemas and Led Zeppelin published their first album. In the same year, young people from all over the world gathered at Woodstock in the name of rock. This year of small and big revolutions also marks the formation of Italpresse Industrie, which began a journey of collaboration and ultimately merged with Gauss Automazione to become the home of Italpresse Gauss technology.

Italpresse Industrie was born in Capriano del Colle in Brescia, Northern Italy which has been the hub of the die casting industry in Italy for more than 70 years and remains the headquarters of the brand.

Italpresse Industrie and Gauss Automazione worked together on their first joint project – the development of the world’s first automatic work cell

2000 global vision

Creation of a global network: with 70% of equipment being exported to overseas customers, the company decided to open strategic locations in Mexico, United States and China.

2005 pioneering new technology

Italpresse created a prototype of the world’s first toggle free two platen high pressure die casting machine while Gauss delivered even more automated solutions for gravity die casting.

2015 digital transformation and Industry 4.0 innovations

Italpresse Gauss realises the concept of Industry 4.0 for customers with the launch of HMe – an intelligent machine supervision tool for real-time data storage and mining.
