Founded in 1978 by Gianluigi Marangoni and Giuseppe Magnaguagno,
Gimax has always played a leading role in the development of innovative machinery to handle ferrous and non-ferrous wire.
The 1980s saw the first range of semi-automatic respoolers, the “POLI” series which are still being used today.
The 1990s saw Gimax successfully introduce the first ever fully automatic respooler, the “ROBO” series that still remains the most reliable, efficient and the most cost-effective respooler that the market can offer today.The 2000s saw Gimax revolutionise the “INF” series of drum packers, making them the most compact, the most efficient and the fastest available on the market.
Since 2010, Gimax has introduced a totally new concept in fully automatic respooling, the “REV” series, as well as an updated shaving process for aluminium wire (“SBA” series), and has completely renewed its range of wire drawing equipment.
2012 Saw Gimax complete its product portfolio with a full range of drawing equipment – dry and wet drawing and ancillary equipment.
Today, after 40 years of activity in the wire industry, Gimax has firmly established itself as the world leader when it comes to respooling and handling wire, with more than 2500 machines sold worldwide.
