The
techne story

Techne has been a leader in the food and industrial-packaging market since 1985, specializing in manufacturing extrusion blow-moulding machines.
The company has always prided itself on its mastery of the mechanical technology and concepts required to manufacture high-quality EBM machines – from extrusion screws to extrusion heads, operating software and blow moulds.
In 2007, Techne unveiled its first ADVANCE machine, with a fully electric motion control system, a leap forward from the old hydraulic technology.

Techne plastic bottle machines are used:

  • To prepare liquid foods, with aseptic products such as milk, fruit juices, tomato sauces and sports drinks, as well as pasteurized products like yoghurt;
  • For industrial applications, to produce lubricants, agrochemicals, hazardous goods, household products, and items for personal hygiene and personal care.

In 2017, Simoparma in partnership with Oswaldo Cisneros acquired TECHNE.

Environmental
Impact

TECHNE’s new plant was designed to be environmentally friendly. All different waste materials generated onsite during production (paper, cardboard, iron, copper and aluminium) are totally recycled through a unique collection process and rainwater is used for our garden’s irrigation.
Our sustainability commitment is built in every new generation of machines designed:

  • The atmospheric electro-magnetic radiations are significantly reduced by using all latest equipment and solutions;
  • Our machines don’t use any hydraulic oil (in a typical hydraulic equipment, this can add up to over 600 litres every 12.000 working hours);
  • The state-of-the-art innovative bus-wiring reduces remarkably the copper wires presence, avoiding the massive use of a material so expensive to extract, produce and discharge;
  • The equipment noise is reduced 30% as compared to hydraulic standard units, to a level of 80-84 Db(A);
  • The new generation machines (full electric motion with industrial PC control) guarantee an energy saving of more than 44%, compared to idraulich solutions. This savings translate into a annual savings of € 40,000, for a mid-size machine at an average European cost of Kw/h.
