Symach, founded in 2001 by Osvaldo Bergaglio in Bologna, Italy, initially began as a research project focused on developing a new technology for drying automotive paint. This endeavor led to the creation of Symach’s groundbreaking drying technology known as DryTronic.
DryTronic drying technology enables automotive paint to cure in less than one minute, revolutionizing the painting process. In 2002, Symach introduced its first robot for automotive body shops, named RoboDry, and also developed a rapid spraying and drying process called SPAP (Symach Paint Application Process), suitable for all brands and types of automotive paint.
Over the years, Symach has expanded its product range to offer a comprehensive lineup of equipment for automotive collision repair centers. With its complete solution for new body shops, Symach has been designing and installing cutting-edge facilities worldwide since 2010, employing the innovative Symach FixLine process. As of 2015, more than 2,600 robots and over 130 complete automotive body shops equipped with the Symach FixLine process have been sold across Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and North America.
In January 2016, Symach relocated to a larger factory occupying 15,000 square meters (161,500 square feet) in Calderara di Reno, Bologna, Italy, to accommodate its expanding operations.
One of Symach’s primary specialties lies in offering a revolutionary repair process to body shops known as FixLine. By implementing the FixLine repair process, shops can significantly reduce the overall throughput time to 1.5-2 days, while also experiencing a decrease of approximately 3-4 hours in labor costs per repair.
