ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move by Giuliani Magni, a mattress maker from Prato, Italy, on his experimentation with compressing techniques and various foams. It asserted that the finished beds that roll off the assembly lines at Magniflex's factory have an appointment with a vacuum-packing system that brings one ton of weight pressing. Moreover, the vacuum-packing breakthrough helped propel Magniflex to a growth spurt in the 1980's. INSET: Exotic materials star in these mattresses.
