Mr. Tiziano Pancher, Sales and Marketing Director
Marangoni Meccanica was founded in 1965 as an innovator and manufacturer of retreading machinery. The company has since expanded its horizon globally, establishing a presence in every continent and exporting technology and know-how over more than half a century of business. The philosophy of materializing innovative ideas, solutions, and technologies, and moving beyond them just as quickly once they become common among competitors, is ingrained in the company’s DNA. This, in many ways, led to the production of highly advanced machinery that changed the history of tire manufacturing.
In the early 2000s, Marangoni Meccanica made a crucial decision, which would change the course of its history—the transition from retreaded to new tires machines. It was a breakthrough that, in reality, was already developed in the previous decades, made possible by certain key technologies, and trust-based relationships with the big players of the tire manufacturing world. Today, Marangoni Meccanica is the “game-changer” in tire-manufacturing machinery design and production. “A customer coming to us with a package of requirements will be surprised by our proposal that will be different from his expectations as we will be able to introduce new features providing better quality or better productivity or higher flexibility than his initial requests,” says Mr. Tiziano Pancher, the Sales and Marketing Director of Marangoni Meccanica.
From its Alpha R extruders and applicators (which in the 1980s revolutionized the technology for the application of tread, and of all non-reinforced components) to the high advanced 3 Drum OTR TBMs, Marangoni Meccanica’s latest technology portfolio includes tire assembly machinery, stripwinding machines platform, last-generation tooling, new IT architectures Industry 4.0 and HMI solutions.
The company’s team is also available to share factory design solutions and propose customized machinery architectures. “The main challenge customers face is the uncertainty of the future tyre market, regarding, say, the type, size and ‘how many per size’ aspects,” states Mr. Pancher. “The best help we can give to our customers is the flexibility of our machines that, as mentioned earlier, in some cases is higher than the requested by them, simply because they do not know our enabling technologies and so they do not know that something more is possible.”
Our people, since 1965, have been passionate about tyres and rubber technologies. We dedicate our professional life to study this subject and to solve the problems of our customers
Another aspect that separates Marangoni Meccanica from the other players is its human power and potential. “Our people, since 1965, have been passionate about tyres and rubber technologies. We dedicate our professional life to study this subject and to solve the problems of our customers,” mentions Mr. Pancher. The company is propelled forward from the satisfaction of hearing the customer’s happiness—becoming their partner and with whom they move ahead into the future using the combination of know-how and passion of both teams. Riding on their success wave by collaborating with many clients, Marangoni Meccanica has founded a subsidiary in India in the middle of 2021, which will be one of its strategic geographical areas for the future. “In 2022 we will focus on the US market, as we expect a great demand coming from the big American players,” informs Mr. Pancher. In terms of technology, Marangoni Meccanica will continue developing its Industry 4.0 know-how and products, providing customers with new, tailor-made machinery and software to improve their efficiency and performance.
