About Us

BDF Digital is a 100% Italian company, with an ancient heart and rich in tradition.

Over 50 years of innovation and research in the world of industrial automation with brands recognised all over the world: TDE Macno and ECS. Today, thanks to the merger of the two historical Italian companies, TDE Macno, based in Vicenza, and ECS, based in Florence and Milan, BDF Digital is a point of reference on the market for the world of industrial automation and renewable energy.

Thanks to the company’s different but complementary divisions, we design, develop, manufacture and market servo drives, numerical controls (CNCs) and complete systems capable of meeting the customer’s specific needs in the field of industrial automation and renewable energy, while focusing on the simplification of processes and sustainability.

We make our know-how available to create quality and long-lasting partnerships. We support the customer from the pre-sales phase and, on request, we implement highly customised solutions designed according to the customer’s actual and specific needs.

With our products and solutions, we constantly seek maximum energy efficiency in industrial plants and in renewable energy in order to meet the challenges of the future, which will be increasingly digital, green and sustainable, and we want to offer high technology to those who want to build industrial innovation and value.
