Robotor’s machines are based on the company’s know-how – the perfect combination of experience in stone-working and robot technology – with a view to simplifying the process and meeting all manner of production requirements.
Join the ROBOTOR revolution
Facing the challenge of innovation means being ready to open up to automation, introducing
technological tools that integrate and complement the set of human skills already present,
liberate the talent of each person, respect experience and traditions.
ROBOTOR’s© robots naturally fit into the company’s operational flow by eliminating tiring work
phases, reducing execution times, increasing productivity and quality without the need for specific
skills thanks to the OR-OS© self-programming software.
18 years of experience in stone processing
ROBOTOR© was born from the experience in the field of marble processing of the two partners
who, in 2004, founded TorArt in Carrara. TorArt uses ROBOTOR’s anthropomorphic robots to
create works for the world’s greatest architects, designers and artists.
Jeff Koons, Barry x Ball, Francesco Vezzoli, Vanessa Beecroft, Giuseppe Penone, Zaha Hadid,
Maurizio Cattelan and many others have turned to and continue to turn to TorArt.
Together with them, important museums and major companies have also used TorArt for the
reproduction of works of art from the past that have had an impact on the media around the
TORART is founded
Filippo Tincolini founds TORART in Carrara, a company dedicated to sculpture, contemporary art and design merging traditional processing methods with the most advanced technologies.
The first Robot
Realizing the great opportunities that can arise from the application of robotics to sculpture, the first robot is installed.
Architect and designer, she was the first artist to recognize the value of Torart, a mix of technology and tradition in Carrara, the home of marble. Thus was born the iconic “Aqua table” with an enigmatic shape.
Orders are growing and the need to be more and more organized and professional to respond to requests arriving from all over the world. Thus was born Torart SrL with the entry of Giacomo Massari.
A pioneer of robotics applied to sculpture, the American artist reinterprets Italian sculpture from antiquity to the early 1900s and entrusts its creation to Torart who guarantees quality and reliability. Thus were born “Envy” and “Purity”.
More and more complex requests and the desire for continuous improvement lead to the creation of the ONE-L prototype, the first robot
designed for sculpture.
Great artists at TORART
More and more artists are turning to TORART to create their marble works. Important international collaborations begin.
The replica in scale (1: 3) of the Arch of Palmyra, destroyed by Isis in 2015, is considered by the New York Times to be one of the most emblematic works of 2016. The reconstruction was possible thanks to the technology that TORART has made available to ‘Harvard University, Oxford University and the Dubai Future Foundation
Jeff Koons, an icon of the neopop style and one of the richest artists in the world, has found a source of inspiration in marble.
He turns to TORART to start an ambitious project of statuary works that defy all the laws of gravity.
The natural evolution of the ONE-L, the powerful robot capable of processing extreme pieces in terms of size and weight. No limits to the
realization of stone works!
ROBOTOR is born, a company designed to make the technology developed over the years by TORART available to everyone
Autodesk and Kuka
KUKA System Partner and AUTODESK machine maker. These are the prestigious partnerships that reward the development work carried out by TORART over the years and allow ROBOTOR to plan international development.
With the new headquarter inside the “MARMI CARRARA”, one of the largest marble companies in the world, the contract for the production and distribution of robots worldwide is also starting.
The NYT dedicates its cover to the replicas of the sculptures of the Parthenon at the British
Museum in London, created by ROBOTOR. This is a potential solution to the dispute involving
Greece, which claims ownership, and England.
A year after the start of sales, ROBOTOR’s robots are present in Europe, Asia, and the United
States, areas chosen for the development of ROBOTOR and where technical and commercial
support services are guaranteed.
