The Arrarex of Milano produced in the 50s - 70s a unique model of lever machine: the Caravel. The inventor, Dr. Emidio Salati,  patented his invention in Italy in 1956.

Initially the machines are manufactured with the VAM (Vetraria Ambrosiana Milano) brand and an effigy in the shape of crowned head. Subsequently, the model is called Caravel  with effigy in the shape of a caravel. Over time, the machine remains essentially unchanged, with slight differences in the handles and internal piston. .

In the late 70's production is adapting to the market with models "like bar ", while keeping unchanged the settings of the lever and the piston. Finally, the brand is marketed by Zerowatt but competition from emerging machines pump definitively closes the chapter "Caravel"..

Besides the basic shape and classic design, what has unique and inimitable this machine is its ability to be disassembled without the use of tools in a matter of seconds. It also the only lever machine on which the resistance is not immersion, but placed outside, under the boiler..
