Gama Srl was established in 1992. The company produces electronic equipment for the control of industrial processes in the graphics industry.
Thanks to cooperating with printing machinery manufacturers, the company has acquired specific expertise in the creation of systems for monitoring the viscosity of inks, adhesives and paints during the printing process.
The constant growth of the packaging sector since the 1990s has led to converters adopting increasingly advanced printing machines in terms of quality and productivity. Traditional rotogravure systems have since been flanked by flexographic machines, and thus the viscometer has become an essential means of standardizing production.
By maintaining a correct ratio of ink to solvent in fact, the consumption of solvent is reduced and print quality is substantially improved.
In the 2000s, Gamas management managed to meet these new requirements, by developing a range of compact, low-maintenance viscometers incorporated into the printing machines. In addition to the traditional drop-ball systems, the company produced its new vibration-technology viscometers.
To strengthen the companys international presence, GAMA International Srl was set up in 2012: a special team quickly managed to prove substantially successful in foreign sales of the companys products, making Gama a market leader.
