Tapematic made its name in the 1980s as one of the world's leading manufacturers of loaders - machines for automatically inserting tape into audio and VHS cassettes. Before pioneering the optical disc revolution manufacturing equipment for replicating and digital ink-jet printing CDs, DVDs and Bluray discs. Today we are revolutionizing the world of packaging, with hyper- efficient UV varnishing and metallization equipment dedicated to the worlds of packaging for cosmetics and spirits.
The man behind this manufacturing serial success is Luciano Perego, genius inventor, designer and founder of our company. Backed by a superb technical office, R&D team and state-of-the-art production facility, we have developed over the years to create machinery that meets the needs of the times. We remain an independent, privately-owned company even after over four decades of market-leading manufacturing.
Our latest adventures are in the world of packaging. With the expertise in coatings we've gained from 20 years in optical discs, we have designed fully-automated one- line machines for applying 3D metallisation and UV base- and top-coatings. This enables the complete, in-house production of finished packaging items, while dramatically reducing the amount of metals and varnishes used, making it more economical and a much greener manufacturing solution.
Established in 1970, Tapematic designs and builds in-house, both novel and very high-quality industrial machinery. For the past decade, Tapematic has specialised in the manufacture of UV varnishing and metallization equipment; focusing specifically in the arena of packaging for cosmetics and spirits, as well as pharmaceuticals and automotive products. The unique and revolutionary PST system has become the company's core business. To complement the established line of equipment, that being the PST Line I, which was first presented to the market in 2010 and subsequently improved upon year after year since launch, an additional model was introduced to the market in the second half of 2018; this being the PST Line II.
