It’s almost here! In Italy, the most important fair for the manufacturing industry will soon begin. We’re talking about MECSPE, of course!
MECSPE is the acronym for Specialized Mechanics. This fair began in Parma about twenty years ago, and in 2019 was replicated in southern Italy, with the MECSPE Bari edition.
MECSPE at BolognaFiere
The high number of visitors at the Parma fair, led to its relocation to Bolognafiere in 2021. Logistically, this location is much more central, close to the motorway, with a railway stop and a car park with 14500 covered parking spaces.
In fact, BolognaFiere boasts one of the most advanced exhibition spaces, not only in Italy, but in the entire world and is home for over 80 national and international trade fairs.
Bologna is a city that combines culture and knowledge, excellent cuisine and traditions and exudes a very friendly and open mentality.
S.A.M.A. Italia is based in Viareggio, in Tuscany, Italy, but has a heavy Bolognese influence, given that one of the proprietors comes from this Emilian capital.
Furthermore, the colors of our logo are red and blue, just like the colors of the Bologna football team.
The thematic shows at MECSPE
Thanks to the synergies of 13 thematic exhibitions, MECSPE offers visitors a complete overview of materials, machines, the latest innovative technologies and of course our own name brand measuring instruments and calibration services for your quality control needs.
You will also find unique conferences and events that will surely capture your interest.
We have been actively exhibiting at MECSPE for over 10 years, and one of the most interesting aspects is certainly the very accurate organization of the fair by the Tecniche Nuove Group and in particular by Senaf.
Year after year, we’ve seen a growing improvement, which is reflected in the increase of highly specialized visitors, who come to visit our stand or the fair, in general.
Just to be more accurate and give a better idea of the potential of MECSPE, we can report a turnout of 48,562 visitors at the 2021 edition in Bologna.
Earlier, we referred to Senaf’s excellent organization, given that for several years it has been offering 13 shows that allows one to visit the best suppliers of technologies, machines and processes in the following sectors:
- Machines and Tools
- Treatments and surface finishings
- Machines, materials and processing of sheet metal
- Quality and Control (Our sector!)
- Digital factory
- Power transmissions
- Automation and robotics
- Electronic subcontracting
- Mechanical subcontracting
- Moulds – Machines for Plastics, Rubber and Composite Subcontracting
- Non-ferrous materials and alloys
- Additive manufacturing
Who is MECSPE for?
This fair is visited by people in the sector. They are generally owners of small and medium-sized companies, or technicians and buyers with decision-making powers from large Italian and foreign companies, looking for new suppliers or to consolidate previously formed relationships.
The change of the location of the fair, from Parma to BolognaFiere was also done with internationalization in mind, which is to say that many exhibitors like us at S.A.M.A. Italia are ready and organized to welcome foreign customers as well.
Our highly competent and friendly staff are able to welcome customers from all over the world, without any communication difficulties.
It will be exciting to meet one another again or get to know each other for the first time, after so many months in which we’ve heavily relied on communication through the phone and webcam.
So, whether you are the owner of a small company, a technician or a buyer of a large Italian or foreign company, come and visit us at our stand for any needs related to quality control measuring instruments . Read on to find out how to get a free ticket.

At our stand you can find information on:
Surface roughness measurement
Control of material defects
Ultrasonic thickness gauges
Thickness gauges for checking coatings
Verification of color and shine
Hardness testers for checking the hardness of materials
What is the latest news that we will unveil at this edition of the fair? You’ll just have to come and visit us at stand C45, Pav. 29, to find out!
Destructive testing at MECSPE
In addition to tools for non-destructive testing, you can also find tools for destructive testing here.
As the name suggests, they perform a series of checks or measurements aimed at identifying a mechanical characteristic by altering the sample.
Here are what types of tests we can talk to you about at MECSPE:
Wearing of materials
Resistance of materials and coatings to atmospheric agents
Instruments for the verification of the applied force

Calibration services of measuring instruments at MECSPE
Finally, to complete our extensive package of solutions, we are also the right partner to provide you with calibration services.
If you are unsure why it is so important to keep your instruments calibrated, please read this article on why it’s important to calibrate your instruments.
Our customers choose to purchase SAMA Tools name brand instruments and have them periodically calibrated based on the frequency established by their control and quality department.
Or they also send us instruments of other brands to have them calibrated by us (calibration reports referable to primary samples) or to have them adjusted (Accredia calibration certificates).
If you want to find out the difference between instrument calibration and adjustment, you can read another article we wrote. You can find it here.
