An Italian company, SIT SpA was formed by the merger of Sordina, founded in 1878, with New Radiant Technology, a specialist in radiation emitter devices. Drawing on the experience of an organisation that created the first operating table, the first steriliser and the first mobile linear accelerator in history, SIT is now world leader in the manufacture of LINACs for Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) with high energy electrons (IOeRT) and operates on every continent, with installations, business units, distributors and engineers.
SIT is one of the few worldwide companies capable of designing, building and distributing linear electron accelerators (LINACs) for IORT. Its creation was stimulated by a combination of a wealth of knowledge in the field of particle physics, microwaves, electronics and expertise in vacuum brazing.
