Our Company

What can Imeta do for you?

Since 1963, Imeta has specialised in the design and production of rolls, chucks, changeover parts, conversion kits and spare parts for seamers.

Chucks and rolls are developed by our experienced technical department with their archive of over 4,000 different seaming profiles and modern constructive technologies.

We export our parts across the world and provide services to can-making factories, canneries, the food and beverage, baby food and pet food industries and the general line market.

Export makes up around 85% of our turnover. Thanks to the support of external agents and our network, we guarantee a complete and optimised service.

What’s special about Imeta spare parts?

We carefully select components and raw materials, pay close attention to their treatment and subject them to a series of strict tests. Furthermore, thanks to the special steels used in our parts, maintenance times are reduced and productivity is increased.

In order to reduce machine downtime, we use innovative surface coatings to improve the quality of seams and the lifetime of the product itself.

Imeta is a big group of people

Today, we have about 90 members of our team. A large share of spare parts are produced within our factory (making them truly MADE IN ITALY) and we work with external suppliers to boost the company’s overall competitiveness. Design and know-how are done entirely in-house, and are constantly enhanced by ongoing investments in research and development.

We guarantee a complete and personalised service because of our internal seaming laboratory that allows us to identify the right profile and best solution for any scenario.

Our parts warehouse contains over 15,000 items for IMMEDIATE DELIVERY – an essential condition to be able to act swiftly when a problem arises and to reduce shipment times for clients.

Furthermore, to reduce manufacturing times, thousands of semi-finished chucks and rolls are ready in the warehouse for the final profile finishing phase, depending on the specific needs of the client.

Over the years we have continued to develop our expertise in providing all the necessary components for changing can sizes and for the remanufacturing “from scratch” of worn-out seamers and can-making machines.

Do you need our help?

Imeta provides in-house technical support and offers seaming courses to create and strengthen dialogue with clients.

In recognition of the quality of our products and our company philosophy, we have achieved numerous certifications over the years.


We have certifications from ISO 9001:2008 valid for the product or service range: “Design, manufacture and sale of spare parts and equipment for seaming machines. Overhaul of seaming machines” to ISO 9001:2015, as well as certification for the weighing procedure for goods to be sent by sea.


We have a Code of Ethics through which we express our principles, values and shared responsibilities. These principles inspire us in our internal and external relations and constitute a guide for each individual’s activities and behaviour.


Thanks to our solar power installation, we have been reducing our carbon dioxide emissions for over 15 years, using solar energy to power our manufacturing machines.

All packaging for our products is recyclable. We have also taken action to reduce our consumption of single-use plastics by 20%.

AEO Certification:

We received AEO Certification in 2016 – the only company in the sector to do so – which grants us the status of Authorised Exporter. This allows for simplified customs procedures, increased security and guarantees faster delivery times for our clients.

Customer care and satisfaction are one of our target for growth: efficient and dynamic organisation provides us the human and technical potential to continue to grow, allowing us to continue competing at a high level on a constantly evolving market.
