1956  Creation of the company and start of the activity

1956-1959  Start the manufacture of rectangular magnetic chucks with Alnico magnets, followed by magnetic stands for dial gauges and circular chucks.

1960-1969  Important incorporation of new magnetic products in SELTER program, such as elevators, separators, transmission blocks, sine tables and desmagnetitzadors (portable and table). At the end of this decade SELTER begins with the manufacture of electromagnetic devices: circular plates were first, followed by the rectangular electromagnets and drill stands.

1970-1979  Production of the first tunnel desmagnetitzators for continuous service and annular plates continous loading.

1980-1989  Change in the type of magnets: Alnico magnets are replaced by ceramic in plates and liftings. Started the electropermanent magnetic chucks programm.

1990-1999  Started with the neodymium magnet chucks, and created a new range of elevators with Neodymium magnets which replaced the previous range made with ceramic magnets.

2000-2009  First systems of high performance magnetic separation. This was a particularly important decade for improving processes and product quality.
