of their process», the Sales Area Manager Fabio Belicchi assures.

Scrap monitoring and reduction, in filling
Concerning the improvement of monitoring and reduction of processing scraps, Zacmi offers a wide articulated range. «There are several systems, developed by Zacmi, which monitor and estimate the quality of our machines’ various operations», Belicchi adds. « Zacmi D.S.M. system is an example: to check the quality of seaming operations and prevent any defects that can escape a standard sample check».
