Company Background / History

Zecchetti is a privately-owned company with limited responsibility (Società con Responsibilità or S.r.L.) It is located at approximately 130 km south of Milan inbetween the cities of Parma and Reggio E. (Northern Italy). Location chosen because of its geographical advantages in relation to the major industrial centres of northern Italy. Zecchetti specializes in the design, technical planning and construction of Palletizing/Depalletizing machinery and complete systems for packaging/handling and movement.

Together with recently took over Tecnores Meccanica, Zecchetti can propose a wide range of services to the Glass Factories, taking care of the empty glass bottles from their lehr exit to the full pallet storage. Palletizing Models cover any production in terms of bottle shape and dimensions: - PICK-AND-PLACE (by tubes) - PICK-AND-PLACE (by vacuum) - SWEEP-OFF Modularity of design is a high priority. The various groups of the palletizing system may be added at any time to completely automate simple installations, permitting a step-by-step upgrade path.

Thus, obsolete equipment may be replaced only when actually necessary, and full automation of a simple palletizer can be accomplished in phases. The wide range of machinery Zecchetti propose can match with any production needs as far as the production speed is concerned.
