Brevetti Robbiati - Model 'B' as seen by Americans

The last article is really interesting, although some of the information has to be taken with a pinch of salt.

The dates are of special interest:

 1948 is very early for importing Giordano Robbiati's machines.
The Business Brevetti Robbiati was registered on the 10th of May 1948 (see here)
It also means that the invasion ;.) pre-dates the "Italian at work" exhibition of 1950 (see here).

The redesign really took place in 1950, but not by Thomas Edward Cara. (for more information about Thos. Cara., see here. as well as here, picture here and here, and interview here 1, here 2 ).
Here is the patent registration for the Model B made by Giordano Robbiati on the 6th of June 1950.

The steamer invention was not registered by Thomas Cara nor by Giordano Robbiati, but by Ennio Delle Vedove, brother of Remo Delle Vedove who manufactured the Model  R. 6 sold under the trademark "Electa": see here. (full patent here).

"Ten years later... the pressure gauge"
The first document i see that mentions the pressure gauge!!!

Looking for the badge of the ATOMIX?
