"Reliability, precision, quick response, long life …. that “small grey instrument” made from alluminium, brass and steel is one of the most ancient tools that a tanner is still using."

- Calati


"For over forty years, CALATI thickness gauges have been made in Italy in various models used in all working environments and appreciated all over the world."


"After Carlo, his two sons Alberto & Alessandro, in 1977, continued to manufacture those measure instruments growing them to become worldwide renowned.

Since then, until 2019, the Calati brothers managed to keep the quality, the precision as much as the availability of the instruments."
