Inox Meccanica

Research, development, and technology are at the core of our projects, aiming to strengthen and preserve our region’s traditions and history!

Inox Meccanica’s dream has become reality thanks to a life dedicated to an ongoing pursuit of simplicity, quality and constructive efficiency.
That’s a fruitful marriage that increases speed in production processes. Here these are the driving forces shaping our industrial automation concept.
As global market leaders since 1975, we design and manufacture machinery for meat processing and packaging, focusing on sausage products. Thanks to the experience developed over the years, we jumped into a diametrically and complementary field; we full immerged into the world dedicated to washing and sanitation of all sorts of production tools and containers, finding the sector cleverly cross-cutting.
1968 is the year of our first patent; a date opening the door to a pride that has persisted for almost fifty years. With the desire to satisfy our customers’ most peculiar and diversified requests, we have achieved around 50 commercial partnerships which allow us today to cover almost 60 countries all over the world. We manufacture more than eighty machines for industrial plants each year, entirely handmade in Italy, in a workplace covering more than ten thousand square meters. However, the beating heart of our headquarter consists of our almost 100 employees divided between production, warehouse, technical/ electrical department, administration and sales.

Staff to whom we provide an on-going training to ensure a highly competent workforce. So far, our meticulousness has assured the attribute “quality” to Inox Meccanica branded products which, together with a selected dealer network and strategic business partnerships, have ranked the company at the peak of the national and international market. The distinctive quality note associated with the Italianness of our AISI 304 stainless steel products, coupled with our after-sales service, make our global expansion visible, reaching all the way to the Americas and Australia.
The sales procedure is inclusive, on request, of tests, if the customer feels the need to put our machines to a trial with specific needs and their own food recipes.

Thanks to an exclusive Pilot Plant we can test industrial production, both for the development of new products and for the optimisation of traditional production processes. However, our testing does not just end with the packaging procedure. After that, the food can also be evaluated from a microbiological aspect in the new laboratory, and from an organoleptic and taste angle in a modern, purpose-equipped tasting room.

In the last few months we have developed several novelties. Beside an advanced and updated top-of- the-range-PIC 99 BCE, equipped with an automatic loading belt, an automatic tube changing system, and a 1100 mould, we developed a brand new version of this PIC (called PIC 99 DRW) equipped with a product preparation system conceived to fill casings with meat pieces or injected muscles. In fact, it allows the operator the positioning and the assembly of several muscles inside a volume reproducing the forming mould.
The inserted parts’ overall weight can be monitored due to a weight control system featuring a high- precision loading cells and a display viewer. This allows to obtain bagged bars of constant length.

We have to dedicate a parenthesis on a productive innovation brought by a freshly patented smoking system. Warm woody notes are imparted directly inside our Tumbler to both cured and cooked products, whose work cycle normally consists of a series of technical operations such as osmotic actions, salt distribution, rest or massage in atmosphere or vacuum, and liquid extraction. To achieve this, our R&D department optimized a process which uses a friction generator, such mechanism can generate smoke at low temperature alternated with vacuum phases. Besides the advantage of the considerable time savings, there is a lower weight loss of the product and a milder taste, whereas in respect of the production cycle there is almost zero risk of fire, saving space and plant energy costs.
Inox Meccanica is not just food processing but washing and sanitation too; therefore, we chose to design the best solutions to sanitize all those tools involved in the production process. Such machines have strong transversal applications, just think of the meat production area, the cheese one, the pet- food one, the pharmaceutical one, and the cosmetic one. Plus, our washing solutions focus on maximising energy and water savings by being environmentally sustainable in terms of the amount of resources used in washing, without compromising on pro- and excellent disinfection. The Washing Machine for buggies is just one of the many examples of the how the company materialised its commitment in researching and developing new technologies for
washing and sanitation.

Our team upgraded the previous model of the washing machine for buggies by equipping the washing cabin with two doors; one is used for container entry via an automated system with forks, while the other is placed at the front from which the container is extracted clean and disinfected, again with the aid of automation. In fact, the washing machine is designed to be housed
in a wall separating two different areas of the plant, thus eliminating the risk of cross-contamination and the proliferation of bacteria that would compromise the quality of the products together with the safety of the purchasers.
