Thanks to its reduced size, flexibility and precision, the Supercombinata series can perform jobs directly on site, by reducing the time and costs of a traditional repair. It is reliable, powerful and easy to use.
Our portable line boring machines Supercombinata allow to make on-site jobs, reducing downtime and freight costs. For years, they have been successfully used in several fields: from Windpower, Railway, Hydropower, Earthmoving, Naval, Nuclear, Oil & Gas,
The portable line boring machine is a machine tool used for machining cylindrical holes by removing metal chips in order to increase the diameter and obtain a high finish, both in terms of roughness and tolerance.
There are different sectors of application, just as there are different types of jobs that can be performed with different models of line boring machines created to meet the most different requirements. Let's get to know them together.
From a technical point of view, the portable line boring machine is a machine tool capable of performing mechanical machining operations by chip removal inside cylindrical holes guaranteeing size, coaxiality and concentricity within very tight tolerances.
Commonly, due to its small size and extreme versatility, the portable boring machine is used for on-site repairs, giving the user a considerable advantage in terms of time and cost. In fact, the work carried out directly on site reduces the costs of disassembly and transport to a specialised workshop, minimising downtime and allowing a return to full operation in the shortest possible time.
Portable line boring machines are mainly used in the construction industry. However, over the years more and more applications have been found in a wide variety of sectors: wind, railway, hydroelectric, marine, nuclear, oil & gas, etc.
The Supercombinata portable boring machine is the multifunctional boring machine designed, developed and manufactured entirely in Italy by Elsa Srl. One of the greatest advantages of the Supercombinata series is its multi-functionality, i.e. the possibility to carry out not only reaming but also high-quality welding with just one installation, one centring and one set-up. In addition to this, the Supercombinata series can be equipped with a series of optional kits that expand its functionality to include machining on small and large diameters, welding and tapping on shafts (external boring), as well as flange facing, creating seeger seats and creating internal threads with various pitches.
Elsa manufactures and sells 5 different extra kits, which can be purchased at the same time or at a later date depending on the boring machine chosen: a kit for reducing the boring range, a kit for machining large diameters, a kit for flange facing, a kit for internal threading and a kit for external boring and overlay welding
Elsa supplies a range of 6 boring machine models suitable for the most varied requirements in terms of machining range and operating space. Each individual boring machine operates on different dimensions, performing on-site repairs with centesimal precision and close tolerances.
The Supercombined series therefore covers a diameter range from 22 mm of the Supercombinata Easy to 1200 mm of the Supercombinata SC3, which can be obtained with the help of extra kits. The series is enriched by the Compact models with even smaller dimensions, designed to guarantee the same machining quality in reduced operating spaces.
Machining with the Supercombinata provides excellent results in terms of dimensional (H7 tolerance) and geometric precision with roughness in the range of 0.8 - 3.2 µm.
In its 25 years of business, Elsa has evolved as a machine tool manufacturer from a family business to a global company. Today, 97% of production is for export and the sales network is well established with 14 exclusive distributors worldwide.

With a long history of success that began in February 1997, Elsa and its flagship product, the Supercombinata, are nowadays brands known worldwide for quality and reliability.
Elsa started as a family business that soon became a global company: thanks to a well-developed distributor network and strong partnerships with the leading companies in the industry, Elsa is present in more than 100 countries.
The past year was marked by a number of important strategic decisions: The company introduced new management systems, working methods and organizational models, and made major investments in the areas of computerisation, quality, environment and safety. It also unveiled a new website with a graphic redesign of its historic logo.
These 25 years have been a long and arduous journey in which Elsa has met the demands of the market, always ensuring high quality standards. It is undoubtedly a numerically small company, but thanks to the strong commitment, mutual respect and experience of its team, it has been able to establish and consolidate international business relationships. By exporting 97% of its production, the company has become a point of reference all over the world.
All this has been possible thanks to the close collaboration with distributors, suppliers and, last but not least, customers, who have always given the company their trust, time and attention.
For the coming years, several projects are in the pipeline and new strategic investments are in sight. We will continue to expand our product range, invest in innovation, research and development to maintain the pioneering role that has distinguished us over the years.
This anniversary will be a new starting point from which we look to the future with enthusiasm.
ELSA and its staff wishes Happy Holidays and all the best to you in the year to come! Our offices will be closed from 24 December to 7 January 2022.
We will reply to all your requests starting from Monday 10 January 2022.
