Mactec is the business unit of Alimac which designs and produces handle applicators, applying the tape carry handle on packaging.
Mactec was created by Alimac following an innovative strategic thought - to move Alimac tape carry handle know-how to manufacturing handle applicators.
Mactec is based on Alimac’s extensive knowledge of tape carry handles and offers a wide range of custom turnkey solutions.
Mactec professionals have many years of experience in handle applicator manufacturing. Their expertise benefits from additional know-how - hundreds and hundreds of Alimac case studies all around the world.
By doing so, Alimac has created an innovative integrated system of machinery solutions and consumable solutions, what we call the Alimac-Mactec Integrated System(AMIS).
Having two core technologies in the same company is a competitive advantage for Alimac and a significant added value enhancing Alimac’s global value proposition for its customers.
The AMIS is the fulcrum of the Alimac commercial offer and includes three alternative solutions:
1. All-in-one System of tape carry handle + handle applicator
2. Tape carry handle solutions
3. Handle applicator solutions
All the Mactec equipment is manufactured in Italy, one of the biggest exporters of packaging machines (= industrial packaging centre).
