Tobaldini was founded in 1950 by the resourcefulness of Gianni Tobaldini who, in a small workshop, started the business of cleaning and chrome plating for third parties.
A family business for 3 generations, today it is a reality of more than 100 people with two production sites in the Vicenza area (Altavilla and Gambugliano) with an offer that ranges from treatments and finishing covering from the A of Blacking to the Z of Galvanizing.
Tobaldini's mission has always been to realize solutions for customers in the field of metal surface treatments, thanks to the specialization of personnel and state-of-the-art equipment, while respecting the environment and the health of employees.
In the continuous quest to always give the best to its customers in terms of quality, timeliness and service, Tobaldini in the past few years decided to invest in an IoT solution such as LARA.
The specific need was to be able to control the entire production process to monitor data on individual job orders and ensure increasingly accurate quality and delivery times.
In particular, the Audits that several companies require require a process of verifying product compliance, demonstrable through objective evidence that LARA can provide through its ability to collect data, present it in real time and also compare it with the history.

With the introduction of LARA IoT, it was immediately possible to have all stages of the production chain under control, checking the status of machines, collecting data even from those that are not exactly the latest generation.
This has allowed Tobaldini, on the one hand, to be able to work on any anomaly in a timely manner and, at the same time, do predictive analysis on production capacity and thus give better service to each customer.
In addition, LARA's integration with Cisco Meraki solutions ensures higher-performing and more secure projects.
Tobaldini's management quickly realized the real advantage of a platform like LARA that provides real data that can be easily consulted and compared with the historical record.
Being able to monitor point-in-time data on the entire production process has allowed Tobaldini to make a quantum leap; thanks to the LARA platform and integration with Cisco Meraki solutions, they are now able to monitor every single step.
In general, the ability to consult data in real time, from any device, in a clear manner enables management, plant managers and senior management to make quick decisions, check the status of machines continuously, and always have functional parameters and business KPIs under control.
This ensures efficiency levels and high quality standards necessary for the Audits that clients require.
Today in a market where there is a lot of competition, being a smart and computerized company brings real value in terms of business, this is the real value we got from the collaboration with FAR Networks and the LARA IoT platform.
