The off-road becomes scooter

Gilera is an Italian company manufacturing  motorcycles that  is part of the Piaggio Group. It is the oldest Italian motorcycle factory still operating since 1909.


After years of success and interruptions due to the wars,  on 23rd November 1969 Gilera was bought by  Piaggio Group, which carried out significant investments on the full range, especially focused on off-road activities that had already brought prestige to this house located in Lombardy. The 125 cc Twin Cross is the most famous example.


In the eighties and nineties Gilera designs motorcycles with futuristic new 4-stroke engines and diversifies the production introducing a range of sport scooters like the well-known Gilera Runner.


Since then Gilera has produced sport scooters  as is in the style and history of this brand.

Marking technology used

The great variety of components that Gilera marks on its motocycles requires the use of different technologies.


Mostly  used are the dot peen technologies for deep permanent markings  in case of  post-marking invasive working processes  (eg. painting). Standard models of dot peen systems combine speed and depth, allowing the identification and the product tracking in the long production chain up to the user.


For the check or control evidence markings , so important in the industrial phases, or for quick marking of serial numbers on components to identify individually is used the traditional mechanic technology.
