Next to the large presses, where Campagnolo stamps out chains, chainrings and sprockets, we found a large number of new and modern CNC machines. It’s easy to see that Campagnolo is still on the cutting edge of technology and puts a lot of effort into developing new ideas. For example, Bora wheels have been produced in clean room conditions in Vicenza for years.
Campy’s love for detail is immense, when you consider that they manually control the hollow pins for Record chains. Even though the assembly line uses various lasers, scanners and x-ray machines to check everything, each pin is checked by hand. For chains, before they are sent, they go through over 80 quality controls. The days when Campagnolo had to rely on the German company, Rohloff, are long gone.
