SINCE 1850


Dell’Era Giuseppe is an historical Italian family-run business, now in its seventh generation, whose core business is the manufacturing of mechanical industry fasteners and fixing systems.
Its name is recognized mostly for the production and distribution of UNI EN ISO 1234 (DIN 94) Split Pins, item for which Dell’Era is European market leader but also well-known all around the globe. To complete the range, the company also produces other kinds of split pins such as Beta/R-Clips Cotter Pins (sim. DIN 11024 single and double ring), IEC 372 for insulators, Humpback Split Pins, Linch Pins and other bent wire articles on customer’s drawing.

Know how

The company owns total control over the process of raw materials purchasing. Being born as iron-wire drawers, Dell’Era has maintained a strong open channel with steel wire rod manufacturers and the direct source of all the main commodities employed for the production. This permits to overlap crucial phases of the transformation by doing it by itself under the roof of its own factory. The company is in fact equipped with special machines able to roll the wire, transforming it for example into a half-round wire used for the manufacturing of split pins. This know-how jealously kept inside by the Dell’Era Family, allows to provide a very high-quality final product and also a more efficient and cost-saving supply chain process.
