OLIVETTI’S LEGACY AND THE BIRTH OF CHIMIMETAL

Since 1997, Chimimetal has consolidated its position as one of Italy’s and the world’s leading chemical photoengraving companies thanks to the technical and professional legacy left by Olivetti’s chemical photoengraving department. Olivetti is a great Italian brand recognised throughout the word and a pioneer of innovation and technology that has been serving people for almost 90 years. 

Da circa 23 anni Chimimetal porta avanti con grande successo questo importante testimone, sviluppando apparecchiature all’avanguardia che migliorano le performances di tutti i reparti produttivi. 

Nel corso degli anni l’azienda ha migliorato i propri sistemi di produzione rendendoli sempre più snelli e flessibili, al passo con i cambiamenti di gestione del magazzino. Tra questi, sicuramente spicca la tecnica della fotoincisione chimica, la quale si adatta maggiormente ad un nuovo approccio. 

THE ACQUISITION OF STATIM SERVICE AND THE ROLE OF GLOBAL LEADER

As Chimimetal gradually established itself in the field of chemical photoengraving, in 2009 the company entered into talks with a major player in the industry, Statim Service, ultimately acquiring it in 2011, allowing Chimimetal to expand its borders and commercial outlets abroad, particularly in Germany. 

Thanks to its unwavering commitment and dedication over the years, today Chimimetal has become a global leader in the world of chemical photoengraving.

QUALITY CERTIFICATIONS

Chimimetal has been testing its own products through its in-house quality system since 1998, created specifically to enhance production control and provide end customers with highly technological products. The quality system is guaranteed by a certificate and a manual that are updated and improved every year. 

CHIMIMETAL IN FIGURES

Large takeovers and expertise that is second-to-none have led to significant investments in industry resources, research and development and the opening of new production sites, like our facility in Turin. 

Of all the investments made by Chimimetal over the years, the PLC automated chemical control of the acid solution, which enables the entire production batch from the first to the last panel to be processed, is worthy of special mention.

Investing in the following tools and resources has enabled the company to significantly improve the quality and potency of its services: 

  • 2 fully automated lines (3 spray chambers);
  • 2 fully automated small lines (2 spray chambers);
  • 1,000 panels 0.20 thick produced every day;
  • 1,000-W fibre laser;
  • New engraving machinery;
  • Automation of the initial production phases: preparation, lamination and exposure.
