While Tecnorama celebrates 30 years of dyeing innovation in 2014, the year before Mario Scatizzi, founder of Tecnorama, celebrated the 50th anniversary of his diploma as Expert Chemist (1963-2013).
In November 1984, he decided to found Tecnorama to produce machinery for textile industry, thanks to his experience gained first as dye-house director of some important woolen mill of Prato (Banci Walter, Luigi Pacini), then as sales agent of dyestuffs and auxiliaries of a well known Italian-German group (AIC/Hoechst) and, finally, as dye technician in its proper dye plant (Selenerama). In Selenerama, he conceived and realised on his own, his first innovations (Batikrama, Colorama e Cromorama) and come to the idea to produce and sell to the others its inventions that, in the mean time, became quite famous. Today, some of these machines are still working both in Italy and abroad. ´Fantasy´ machines in textile sector have a short life, that´s why Tecnorama, after some successes, started studying different machines with a longer life expectancy.
In 1987 DOSORAMA was launched at ITMA in Paris, the first European machine for automatic dosing of laboratory recipes with gravimetric system. Starting from this first realisation, whose number 1 has been re-bought and exposed into Tecnorama headquarter, many innovation products have been conceived and sold mainly in Germany but also in US, Turkey, Spain, France, Portugal, Switzerland and Austria with a great success. Dosorama machines have been recently renewed and equipped with an original volumetric dosing system multi pipette which has been patented. For over 15 years the famous Dos&Dye compact has been introduced in the market, an innovative and completely automatic system for receipt management and samples dyeing that combines dosing machines with dyeing machines. This system is achieving a significant success in Asia (India, China, Taiwan) where the market is desirous of equipments for the complete dyehouse automation. The new equipment generation Tecnorama is now offering to textile market to improve quality and productivity is based on new technologies allowing to verify the behavior and the exhaustion of dyes during dye bath depending on changes occurred to process parameters (temperature, salinity, ph,).

ITJ Editor: How has Tecnorama been doing in the Indian market? Which are its other strong markets globally?
MO: Most of our turnover comes from Asiatic market sales, especially from China, Taiwan, India but, recently, also from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Many western groups relocated their production units or look for subcontractors in these areas and they need automation to grant the performance to meet international standards. This is why our automatic dosing and dyeing machi
