Symach’s R&D division
Since 2001, Symach produces innovative bodyshop solutions for the collision repair industry.
Everyday, small to large bodyshops, multiple shop owners and car dealers use Symach equipment and innovation tools to increase productivity, efficiency, in a safe and clean environment.
For 20 years, Symach promotes to bodyshops worldwide how to move forward from a conventional repair process to an innovative lean process using leading edge technology.
Spraybooths, drying robot, UV lamps, LED shop lighting, paint mixing room and the FixLine innovation are designed by Symach R&D engineers, using the highest quality components. All equipment is produced at Symach headquarters of 15’000m2 (160’000 sqf) in Bologna, Italy; installed by trained experts and followed by onsite personalized training.
The FixLine is a repair process in a conveyor system which increases productivity, quality and speed of everyday repair.
It reduces the car’s actual time inside the bodyshop by up to 40% (up to 2 days) and reduces an average of 3 to 4 hours in labor cost per repair. Symach curing systems also reduces energy consumption up to 90%, a good path for the environment and for the bodyshop’s carbon footprint.
Symach was founded in 2001 by Osvaldo Bergaglio in Bologna, Italy. The company started as a research project for a new technology for drying automotive paint. The results of the research project led to the development of Symach’s revolutionary drying technology called DryTronic.
DryTronic drying technology allows automotive paint to cure in less than one minute. In 2002, Symach started the production of its first robot for automotive body shops called RoboDry and developed a quick new process to spray and dry every brand and type of automotive paint, called SPAP (Symach Paint Application Process).
Symach has developed a complete range of equipment for automotive collision repair centers. Worldwide, the company offers a complete solution for any new body shop. Starting in 2010, Symach began to design and install new body shops all around the world, using the Symach FixLine process. To date, Symach has sold more than 2600 robots and more than 130 complete new automotive body shops with the new Symach FixLine process in Europe, Middle East, Australia and North America starting in 2015.
In January of 2016, Symach moved into a new, larger 15.000 square meter (161,500 square feet) factory in Calderara di Reno, Bologna, Italy.
Symach is specialized in offering a new repair process to body shops called FixLine. The FixLine repair process reduces the actual throughput time inside the shop to 1,5-2 days and also reduces an average of 3-4 hours in labor cost per repair.
Today, Symach is organized to design, install and train new body shops in every part of the world. Symach has more than 30 employees as part of its international team, which includes installers, engineers and trainers. Step-by-step, Symach manages the body shop conversion, from a conventional process to the FixLine process.
