Our company

Automation leader for graphic art industry and paperboard converting

Our company was born in 1982 by the need of our customers to get in touch with specialist suppliers, able to realize conveyor systems used in the graphic industry.

During its 35 years experience in graphic arts, Solema’s creativity and knowledge have designed many different technical solutions, each one well-tailored on the process to automate. Nowadays Solema is the leader company in industrial automation that proposes, designs and realizes flexible and innovative machines in graphic art and board converting fields. Mechanics, electronics and software are mixed together to improve quality, productivity and efficiency of productive process, through tailored installations of bindery and printing lines.

All our products are studied and designed internally by our technical office, developed with the most recent CAD 3D programs. High integration allows us to use elements and components realized inside our company: the electrical devices and the software of the machines are developed by our engineers, as well as the electric power units, assembled in Solema and installed on the machines.

The internal management of design, production and assembly allows us a complete and constant control on the productive process, which give us the unique possibility to provide efficient and flexible answers in any step. The constant collaboration between the technical and the sales department guarantees solutions able to meet the industry’s three crucial needs: optimize resources, optimize spaces, optimize times.

On January 1, 2002, we opened a sister Company in North America. Together with our American partner we decided to locate in the Midwest, Crawfordsville, Indiana. At this location we provide sales, installations, spare parts and services for all our North American customers.

The location has proven to be very well chosen, also in 2013 when Solema Italy has acquired from BHS Corrugated the business unit of the company Roda manufacturing machinery for the production of pads and partitions for the Paper Board Industry, being Indiana the Crossroads of America.

Solema USA is today the sales coordinator also for the full Solema product range in the North American market for both Graphic art and Paper Board Industry.

Design

During the design phase, Solema engineers are able to realize a new plant layout, or to modify an existing one optimizing the available spaces, creating a system tailored to the customer. In the R&D department inside our company, new products are always in development to satisfy the different automation requests.

Components production

The most modern CNC machines allow us to control each step of the mechanical components realization designed on our own for our machines’ assembling.

Machines assembly

Each machine or conveying line built by Solema is completely tested before packing and shipping to the customer. This to guarantee the state-of-art when running as well as very short installation time at customer’s premise.

Electrical wiring and Software

The electrical and software department uses components of the worldwide most known brands for the hardware and the software part. The integration with existing IT networks is entrusted through Profibus, CanBus and Ethernet PowerLink protocols for the management of large production lines.
