Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. was founded in 1977 by a group of manufacturers of insulating materials to provide the maintenance to its machines. Immediately the interest was directed to the acquisition of customers outside of the the group, especially foreign companies.
In 1987 the “plastic division” was created, dedicated to the design and manufacture of equipment for the recycling of plastic materials, enriching their staff with a new team of technical and commercial specialists.
In 1992 Gamma Meccanica realized the first plant for the production of insulating boards in XPS.
Today 98% of Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. revenue comes from commercial contracts with foreign countries.
Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. has always been attentive to to the problems of pollution and environmental protection. That’s why since 2010 the entire production plant is powered by “clean energy” produced by the photovoltaic system located on the the roof of company buildings.
In 2014 the company obtained the certificate UNI EN ISO 14001 for its system that controls the environmental impact of its activities and for the the systematic search for improvement in a coherent, effective and sustainable way.

 Systems for plastic recycling and pelletizing

From plastic recycling to pelletizing, Gamma Meccanica S.p.A.  researches and develops machines and systems designed to recycle a vast variety of plastic materials available on the market by transforming them into perfect and regular granules: pelletizing. Constant technological and applicative research by highly qualified staff, make the company one of the leading players on the international market. Recycling and regeneration systems are able to recycle a vast variety of plastics in various forms: film, bottles, textiles, yarns, fibres, containers, sheets.

Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. recycling systems can be devided into three main types:

  • COMPAC lines consisting of
    • shredder;
    • extruder;
    • filter;
    • pelletizer.
  • CONVENTIONAL lines consisting of
    • granulator;
    • forced feeding;
    • extruder;
    • filter;
    • pelletizer.
  • PET recycling systems consisting of
    • dehumidifier,
    • extruder,
    • filter
    • pelletizer.

Among the main materials that Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. lines can recycle there are: LLDPE, HDPE, LDPE, HWMPE, EVA, PP, BOPP, OPP, PS, EPS, XPS, ABS, PC e PET.

In the last years has spread the use of biodegradable plastics.

Companies operating in this market can pick up different opportunities with Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. that has been producing and developing these lines since the early 90’s.

Pelletizing systems for plastic recycling

Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. pelletizing systems can also be employed for the pelletization of other types of materials, such as: POM, charged PE and PP, TR, PVC, SBS, KRATON, PA and HOT MELT.

Customised products for plastic recycling systems

Each manufactured machine or line is designed after careful analysis of the needs expressed by the customer providing complete “turnkey” solution.

Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Production Lines, Insulating Materials

The extruded polystyrene called also XPS is a plastic material combined with other components and expanded by means of a blowing agent in order to create a continuous structure.
Extruded polystyrene is used as an insulating material, it has several properties, such as: simple installation (it’s very light but very strong), high resistant to temperature changes, physical and dimensional stability, good resistance to compression, this is an inorganic product (therefore it prevents the development of micro organisms such as fungus and moulds), it is water-resistant and it is not dangerous for people or environment.
Thanks to extruded polystyrene you can save energy and reduce pollution.

Since 1990 Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. designs and realizes complete production lines and single machines for the production of XPS boards.
Every line or machine is designed as per the specific requests of customer.
This allows the development of a customer-supplier rapport based on trust and collaboration, which continues for the entire lifetime of the system thanks to the Gamma Meccanica post-sales service.

Remote assistance with VPN technology

In order to assure an effective and on-time assistance which helps to void unplanned and long production stops, Gamma Meccanica can install a remote diagnostic and control system based on VPN technology which directly connects the customers supervising system to After Sales assistance station in Gamma Meccanica’s headquarter in Italy.
This solution allows to reduce the intervention costs with with greater customer satisfaction.
The connections with Gamma Meccanica Centre of Technical Support are safe, and the data are protected by strictly confidential agreements. In addition, upon the request it is possible to support customers during the production phase and / or during the development of new products.
