Ferrario and the Giga Press revolution on IlSole24 Ore Video


The Giga Press is a revolutionary technology that has garnered significant attention and support, pioneered by Riccardo Ferrario, the general manager of IDRA GROUP. In a recent interview with IlSole24 Ore Video, one of the leading Italian news outlets Ferrario shared the story of IDRA, as well as the groundbreaking GigaPress die casting machine.
The Giga Press has become a topic of discussion in Europe's automotive industry, as it is closely linked to the envisioned end of diesel and gasoline engines by 2035. Journalist Francesca Barbieri, Alberto Annicchiarico, and Antonio Larizza from Sole 24 Ore, along with Silvia Bodoardo (a professor at the Polytechnic University of Turin and a partner in the EU Battery 2030+ plan) and Enrico Loccioni (the president of Loccioni), participated in the discussion.
Ferrario expressed his enthusiasm and satisfaction in being part of this remarkable journey, describing it as a beautiful story. The concept of the GigaPress originated between 2015 and 2016, and according to Ferrario, it exemplifies how complex inventions can actually simplify and solve intricate problems.

The Giga Press represents a significant advancement in the field of manufacturing, particularly in the production of electric vehicle components. It is a large-scale die-casting machine capable of producing massive aluminum parts with high precision and efficiency. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the automotive industry by enabling the production of lightweight and structurally robust components for electric vehicles.
By utilizing the Giga Press, automakers can significantly reduce the number of individual parts required for vehicle assembly. This simplification leads to faster production cycles, lower costs, and increased overall efficiency. Consequently, the Giga Press plays a crucial role in accelerating the transition towards electric vehicles and meeting the ambitious goals set for the elimination of diesel and gasoline engines by 2035.
The collaborative efforts of industry leaders, academics, and technological innovators, as exemplified by the partnership between IDRA GROUP and other key players, highlight the commitment to driving sustainable change in the automotive sector. Through advancements like the Giga Press, the industry aims to overcome complex challenges and pave the way for a greener and more environmentally friendly future.
