Minipack Lab

The minipack®-lab was inaugurated on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the first chamber shrink-wrapping machine designed by the founder and engineer Francesco Torre. The new technical department, which brings together R&D at minipack®-torre S.p.A. is located in the same memorable areas where the renowned global patent was created and registered 40 years earlier.

The new technological site now features a mechatronic laboratory for prototypes and customisations, mechanical and electrical design, software as well as the documentation and product certifications archive.

The tradition of the Minipack brand A long-standing history

minipack®-torre has been synonymous with innovation, reliability and quality packaging for over 40 years. The minipack®-torre trademark s registered at the International Office of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The international patents, registered in 1976 by president Francesco Torre and granted as innovation patents, launched the minipack®-torre FM range into the world. This is how our chamber machine providing packaging with heat-shrink plastic film came about!

Today, despite the natural expiry of these patents, minipack®-torre keeps on investing in R&D and promoting the registration and development of new technological patents to ensure minipack®-torre products stand out on the market. The tens of registered patents are a mix of ideas, technology and innovation, as well as being the solution to the packaging needs of our clients from all over the world.
