Who we are
Checchin s.r.l is a family-run company that since 1959 has been dealing with protecting and making anticorrosive metals, subject to galvanic corrosion. Since the early years it has created a technological and production system among the best in Europe, created with innovative programs and constantly cutting-edge treatments, characteristics that have made Checchin s.r.l. leader in static, barrel and
It sets its principles towards an innovative, competitive, safe and digitized standard production model, without renouncing 3 main characteristics: flexibility, availability and care for the environment, which distinguish it from other competitors.
The know-how acquired over the years allows Checchin srl to play the role of "partner", rather than a simple supplier, placing the needs of the customer, the market and the reference specifications in the Fasteners and Automotive sectors in 1st place and providing a remarkable variety of products and services. For these reasons, it collaborates with its passivation manufacturers to support and improve the thermal-chemical aspects, offering advice through specialized production technicians.
The goal of Checchin s.r.l is to obtain the maximum result of resistance of the detail in the various galvanizing processes by fulfilling the requests of each customer.
Plants and coatings
The term GALVANIZING indicates the process by which a carbon zinc coating is applied to an iron, zamak or steel substrate as protection against corrosion.
The material to be treated is properly prepared (pre-degreased, pickled and degreased), and then subsequently immersed in an electrolytic solution containing zinc salts. Finally, a passage of current is created between the piece and the solution so that the metal zinc can settle on the surface of the piece itself.
Our structure is made up of 21,000 m2, of which 6,000 m2 are covered. Checchin s.r.l is equipped with fully automated systems in order to avoid production waste and to guarantee the quality of the detail, continuity and flexibility of production. We give individual pieces complete protection and a longer lasting coating, even in damaged areas, to achieve full customer reliability. Our staff, operating over 3 shifts, is highly qualified and professionally takes care of the customer's needs to give them the maximum yield while respecting delivery times.
The CHECCHIN company deals with 3 different types of galvanizing: based on the size of the material, the color to be obtained and the desired protection:
Classic Galvanizing BarrelProcess indicated for small metal parts and for details of small/modest dimensions and weight, which can undergo the mechanical action...
Specific barrel Zinc-NickelProcess indicated for small metal parts and for details of small/modest dimensions and weight, which can undergo the mechanical action...
Static Classic galvanization or Zinc-NickelProcess suitable for details such as brackets, assembled, gates, trolleys, pulleys, molds, crankshafts, medium-sized boxes, which...
In addition to the electrolytic zinc-plating processes described above, in order to improve the protection, coating and longevity of the details, we have specialized in the following processes:
The advantage of this treatment is that of having a better resistance to corrosion, giving the details an excellent ability to not undergo alterations after thermal shocks and mechanical stresses (such as: impacts, screwing, chafing, scratches), and the ability to confer the piece an excellent friction coefficient , making it suitable for the application of moving parts of any type.
This process is recommended to eliminate visible and non-visible micro-cracks from hydrogen, ensuring a better performance of use of materials that have a high resistance class (greater than / equal to 1000 RM).
The sandblasting treatment is indicated, and used, as a preventive phase for the zinc flake coating process.
We have 2 different types of finishes:
- Silver finish
- Black finish
- Made especially for details that, given their delicacy and criticality of use, cannot undergo any hydrogen embrittlement that is generated in the classic electrolytic process.
- Low cooking at 250 ° C, therefore applicable on products that require a certain control of the treatment temperature such as springs.
- High corrosion resistance with more than 2000 hours of total protection tested in the salt spray chamber.
- Possibility of extremely thin deposit up to 5 microns. .
- Excellent adhesion and coverage.
- Version with friction coefficient under control.
- Excellent for rubber-metal attack.
Our goal is to offer you the quality of our best services, while having respect for the environment, maximum protection of our partners and our team of professional workers.
We have cutting-edge tools to best meet your needs and we have an organization management system compliant with modern requirements recognized as UNI EN ISO 9001_2015 certificate.
Finally, to safeguard us and the environment around us, we use our System Green. .
We place the protection of the environment at the base of our projects and we persevere to reach the "zero impact" goal through numerous initiatives:
- We have a modern purification plant (with a surface of 1000 square meters) of the water used in our production process with the consequent reintroduction of clean water in the galvanizing lines, and a personal annex dedicated exclusively to checking correct operation.
- We have new hydraulic and electrical systems, which together with constant maintenance and continuous monitoring of production processes, allow to reduce industrial waste to a minimum.
- Partnership with companies that deal with environmental services in the management of recovery, disposal, transport and recycling of waste, in complete harmony with the environment.

These tools allow the perfect achievement of thickness of the details, which is frequently checked to obtain the desired results.
Research and development
The research and development activity takes on particular importance in our company, as we believe that great opportunities arise from the search for new technologies, for compliance with technical specifications and for respect for the environment and safety.
We have started a series of laboratories with our clients, to experiment with advanced prototypes that take full advantage of the data and new production technologies on the market.
Since 2019 Checchin s.r.l collaborates with:
- Politecnico di Torino (POLITO)
- Università di Torino (UNITO)
Checchin S.r.l is associated with Unione Industriale di Torino, to stay constantly updated on market movements and its requests.
