HISTORY QUALITY
PHILOSOPHY

For over 50 years
we have been developing
solutions in mechanical,
electrical and insulation
technologies.

We are committed to meeting the growing needs of highly competitive sectors:
from the iron and steel industry to the energy industry, from the chemical industry to the steel industry.

Thanks to our two divisions, the updated know-how and the skills of our staff, we create custom-made products with innovative materials that are the result of our continuous research.

TIMELINE
For over 50 years we have been helping
to move Italy and the world.

1969

1969
In 1969, Enzo and Natale Bigaran
set up a machining workshop in Alexandria.

1975

1975
Following the development of mobility in Italy,
since 1975 the workshop has specialised in the production
of components for the railway and tramway sector.

2000

2000
The company’s evolution is constant and in 2000 we created the technological insulators division that supports the historical mechanical technologies division.

2004

2004
Four years later, we inaugurate the new 6000 sq.m. plant:
more space for workshops, technological laboratories and offices,
to work better and with more synergy on increasingly
ambitious and cutting-edge projects.

The next generation

THE NEXT GENERATION
In the meantime, the new generation has taken over the helm
of the company: the sons Dario and Mario.

With the same passion, and thanks to updated skills,
they consolidated Bigaran’s position in Italy and around
the world as one of the most qualified suppliers
of innovative mechanical components and ceramic
materials for medium and high voltage contactors for
both rail transport and industry.

Exclusive distributors

Exclusive distributors
We have also become exclusive distributors for Italy of two historical German brands:
Contitech, Continental Group, world leader in the supply of suspension components and systems for the railway and tramway sector;
Mahle, a world leader in the supply of radiators, hydraulic and cooling systems in the railways sector.
APPROACH
Cooperative, fast, accurate
and sustainable.

The flexibility of a family business, the problem solving of a large company.

That’s why every new request is a challenge for us in search of new solutions and, at the same time, an opportunity to grow professionally.
Whatever your request, our staff is qualified, trained and constantly updated will follow you in all phases of development, providing you with the necessary technical support for each type of design: on drawing, co-design, reverse engineering.

everything under control from design to production

Our fleet consists of equipment capable of communicating in real time with the technical department that works with the latest generation software both in the design phase and in the production control and monitoring phase.

QUALITY AND CERTIFICATIONS
More than quality,
Bigaran quality.

For us, quality is the ability of our human and technical resources to meet the explicit and implicit needs of our customers.

Therefore, not only the rigorous compliance with the project but also the ability to go further to propose a better, more efficient solution.
Each supply is accompanied by the required certification in accordance with the applicable legislation in each country.

Trenitalia SpA has qualified us as a company for the supply of critical and complex railway products.

These are our certifications:

All production is constantly monitored and kept under control in each division.

In the mechanical technologies division,

the laboratory carries out a series of programmed checks and tests, carried out by our qualified UNI ISO 9712 level 2 personnel:

  • Dimensional testing with three-dimensional measuring machine DEA
  • Dimensional testing with micrometers, bore gauges, P/NP gauges
  • Surface checks with ALPA roughness meterA
  • Visual checks
  • Controls with penetrating liquids
  • Magnetoscopic controls
  • Ultrasonic testing
  • Radiographic checks
  • Hardness tests
  • Traction and resilience tests (at external laboratories)
n the electrical and insulating
technologies division

the laboratory subjects the products to:

  • Rigidity and arc resistance tests in high and low current and voltage
  • Compression rupture tests with calculation of the modulus of elasticity
  • Dielectric strength tests
WORKFLOW
A RESULT-ORIENTED PROCESS
Our way of working, developed over time by working
with hundreds of customers around the world, is an additional guarantee
for those who demand quality, reliability, results.

WHATEVER THE CHALLENGE IS, YOU CAN COUNT ON BIGARAN.

ENVIRONMENT
PRODUCTIVITY AND RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

LAST BUT NOT LEAST
COMMITMENT AND RESPECT

for years we have been committed to combining
productivity and respect for the environment
by using low impact materials, reducing energy
consumption and exploiting renewable energy.

EFFICIENCY AND
SUSTAINABILITY

In fact, we have built a photovoltaic system that covers part of our company’s needs (86 kW on average 100kW). And we do not miss any opportunity to make our processes more efficient and lighter.
