To serve the automotive industry, currently the company is manufacturing a 4th generation of magnetizing station (the first one was developed in 2016), with handling systems and two levels of magnetic quality control. Such a magnetizing station is generally used for magnetization of step-skewed rotors with rare earths magnets embedded; customer’s product requirements are typically related to full magnetic saturation and low torque ripple. From the industrial point of view we are always asked for: low cycle time, high performance level, compatibility with 4.0 industry, high reliability, accuracy and flexibility. Our magnetic solutions fulfill all the requirements mentioned above and this is proven by the fact that several European OEMs and Tier1 suppliers are using our equipment in their production lines.


Since 1959, the mission of Laboratorio Elettrofisico has been to provide exceptional magnetic solutions and services. To meet all the needs of its clients worldwide, the company has expanded into new industries and markets, introduced new capabilities, and invested in the latest technologies as well as in new services. This year Laboratorio Elettrofisico is proud to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

This year Laboratorio Elettrofisico is celebrating its 60th anniversary. As part of the celebration, Laboratorio Elettrofisico has sponsored the two-day event “Magnetic Materials and Applications” in partnership with the UK Magnetics Society.

Laboratorio Elettrofisico opens a new Magnetics Support Office in Shanghai, with sales services and warehouse. The office’s Shanghai location is key to providing an entirely new level of accessibility to magnetics service. The new facility provides dedicated support to customers in China, with a technical staff of LE trained engineers. The office also makes available spare parts and demo equipment.


Laboratorio Elettrofisico announces the opening of a fully equipped lab for measuring and magnetizing next door to Silicon Valley, California.


New locations of Laboratorio Elettrofisico open in China, with a sales and technical service office in Beijing and an office and warehouse in Shanghai.


A completely redesigned Automatic Measuring Hysteresisgraph (AMH) equipment series is launched featuring Ethernet connection, user-friendly software interface, and remote service assistance. It is the widest range of magnetic measuring equipment on the market.


Founded in 1959, Laboratorio Elettrofisico marks their 50th anniversary in the magnetic industry.


Laboratorio Elettrofisico starts a new era with more investment in technology. The Board of Directors, Dario Zanon, Brian Palakow, and Bruno Arosio are able to realize the company’s vision of expanding its presence in the United States. The acquisition of Walker LDJ Scientific is completed with the support of TANK Sgr. and with the aid of the expertise of the technical team: Andrea del Prete, Maurizio Bertoldo, and Stefano Tizianel, who continue in directing key positions in the LE organization today. This acquisition adds to LE more than 100 years of technical and engineering expertise, combining a complete line of high quality magnetic instrumentation.


By improving its sales and support organization worldwide, Laboratorio Elettrofisico becomes a key player in the magnetics industry and a partner with large companies like Siemens, Alstom, Thyssen, Ford, GM, and other companies utilizing many kinds of magnetic applications. A new partner, Bruno Arosio, joins the company, and with his financial and corporate expertise LE becomes an international company able to sustain growth worldwide.


LE USA, a Laboratorio Elettrofisico subsidiary, opens a sales and service office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With the foresight of Dario Zanon and Brian Palakow, the future VP, LE continues to expand its vision to other markets. LE targets markets in Asia, where the magnets industry is developing very fast in relation to rare earth magnetic materials production. In Taiwan and Shanghai, LE proposes agreements that establish the business basis for the LE China, a few years later.


The company structure is expanded as new professional staff are added to Laboratorio Elettrofisico. New staff includes Sergio’s son, Dario Zanon, and the very first LE Physics PhD, Alessandro Tassi. By attending European shows and technical seminars, Laboratorio Elettrofisico becomes noticed and is chosen as a valuable partner by key European clients, whose companies begin to utilize LE magnetics technology.


LE adds to its team a new generation of engineers in response to the increasing demands of developing technology. Among them are Enzo Marazzini and Eugenio Stefanotti, who are responsible for creating the very first electronic charging boards to be used in fast capacitors charging magnetizers. They will continue to be part of the LE team for many years.


In Italy, Laboratorio Elettrofisico designs the first and complete magnetic measuring system for Magneti Marelli. This is the beginning of an on-going expertise that results in LE’s pioneering magnetic systems and innovating technologies.


In the beginning, Laboratorio Elettrofisico exclusively served the needs of the magnetics technology market in Italy. In 1959, there were no companies in Italy that designed magnetic systems. At the time, the main Italian center of PM production (CMP/Centro Magneti Permanenti) needed to measure the magnetic properties of its materials. Sergio Zanon and his associates founded Laboratorio Elettrofisico, with the mission to manufacture the world’s most precise magnetizing equipment and magnetic measurement equipment.
