Customised automation solutions for assembly and test since 1975.

Samac conceives, builds, installs and services customised machines and plants for automating the assembly and test of mechanical, electromechanical and hyrdomechanical components.

This service starts from inventing “ad hoc” solutions to meet customers’ specific needs, grows through the design and implementation of the system and ends with start-up and post-sales support, which is managed with the utmost responsiveness by having local service units in the main world market areas.
