In 1970, Natale Capellaro was retired since few years. Following a former Antares employee, Olivetti acquired rights on Antares Lei's tecnology and added a new beautiful case to produce Summa-19. Actually, mechanical devices are identical and Lei was introduced one year before Summa-19.

A 1983 Olivetti book (Design Process Olivetti 1908-1983) reports that ''Summa-19, first low-cost calculating-machine, has an all-plastic body. The plastic is not of high quality, nor is it particularly durable". Actually such a machine was intended to contrast new electronic calculators offering a "pop", nice and cheap mechanical adding machine. General quality level is far lower that usual Olivetti standards. In particular printing device and keyboard had to be often replaced.
