Solutions Creating Value

Dalcos® is the Dallan® division established in 1988 to manufacture coil punching and laser cutting machines. We are highly specialized in making punching machines, perforation lines, laser cutting systems and numerical control feeders with continually evolving patented technologies.
We are well known on the market for the compactness of our extremely easy-to-use machines, which are protected by no less than 20 international patents.
Our technical and sales department is ready and willing to advise you and to study the most suitable system for your production requirements. Coil-fed production is quick and easy with Dalcos

History of Dalcos and the beginnings of coil processing lines

The Dallan group has been producing roll forming lines and plants for making top quality products from steel coil since 1978.
From the simplest roll forming lines for just bending the coil: Dallan customers started to demand more and more profile machining applications and more flexibility, while production runs were becoming increasingly smaller.
That is why, in 1988, Dallan set up Dalcos - the division specialized in the production of compact plants for “coil shearing and prepunching”. Because of the savings in raw material, speed of work and automation, the technology was also highly appreciated by customers who had up till then only used sheet metal punching machines. At the same time companies working with stamping press lines began to require more and more flexibility and they realized that working with Dalcos punching machines they managed to satisfy new customers with customized products.
From the very first hydraulic machines with special punches, it was not long before Dalcos started using standard thick turret punches (the punches that most steel sheet turret punching machines use), and the name went from the simple “coil shearing and prepunching line” to the even simpler “coil punching machine”.
From then on Dalcos never looked back in terms of technological evolution.


Here are the main stages in Dalcos’s history:

  • 1978

    Since 1978 Dallan group has been producing rollforming lines and plants, starting from metal strip, to produce very high quality finished products

  • 1988

    First hydraulically activated Dalcos PXN machines with coordinate programming

  • 1989

    Application of Dalcos VEGA clamp feeder

  • 1990

    Application of the thick turret punches

  • 1994

    First Dalcos PXN machine with width 1500

  • 1998

    Introduction of the first Dalcos VEGA Bi-alternate clamp feeder

  • 2001

    Introduction of CAD CAM graphic programming software

  • 2002

    First parametric programming software for coil-fed machines, allowing 24 independent variables and 50 dependent variables to be managed

  • 2004

    First Dalcos ERGO feeder with built-in straightener

  • 2007

    Introduction of Dalcos HMI touch screen with simplified control and monitoring by icons

  • 2008

    Introduction of ECAM graphic parametric software, allowing up to 500 dependent variables to be managed

  • 2009

    First portal hydraulic punching machines, leading to the development of the servo-electric machine

  • 2012

    Servo electric punching machine EXN launched at Euroblech in Hannover

  • 2014

    Coil-fed laser cutting system LXN and coil-fed combo system ELXN launched at Euroblech in Hannover

A curiosity: PXN is the acronym of the term "Punzonatrice X Nastri" (Punching Machine for Coils) used in the very first quote. The names of the subsequent lines came about in the same way: EXN stands for "Elettrica X Nastri" (Electric for Coils), FXN for "Foratura X Nastri" (Perforation for Coils) and LXN is "Laser X Nastri" (Laser for Coils)
The quality and user friendliness of Dalcos punching machines were a trigger for word-of-mouth recommendations from the moment the first plants were installed with the result that Dalcos unit grew to become one of the leading products of the Dallan group.
Dalcos plants are currently operating successfully in more than 40 countries across the world.
