CAM Automatic Packaging Machines

The origins of italian Packaging

In 1949 Antonio Martelli, in a small workshop in via della Salita, just outside porta san Vitale in Bologna, produced that first automatic machine to manufacture wallets, it was used to cut and weld plastic for those products. That machine was sold to REGIS and right after that the production of dosing and modelling machines for chocolates and washing powder started. CAM started designing and producing the first italian cartoning machines, and the main innovation was the carton opening blade, designed and patented by Antonio Martelli. It was a simple double blade mechanism installed on hinges, which, once inserted inside the flat carton, opened it and put it in volume. At the beginning of the fifties CAM started expanding. In 1966 Guglielmo, Antonio’s son, took on his fathers’ job and started the construction of a new facility in Rastignano, which today is still in use. Through the years the machine range has also expanded so that complete packaging lines for all industrial sectors can be offered, among which are the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food ones. Today the CAM brand is a well-known group and it consists of 14 manufacturing companies, 19 sales offices, with sales agents in 27 countries, 15 service points, able to provide technical support in any country of the world. This year CAM turns 73 and, in order to celebrate the territory where it was born and where the headquarters are located, took part is the creation of “PIANORO Vecchio e Nuovo” the new book by Roberto Vitali which tells the story of this integration of past and present.

CAM takes art to exhibitions already since a long time…The first times were at the live corporate events, during which clients, artists and visitors used to leave their mark. Step by step it became clear that such a bond, unusual for this sector, could give much more than that. “WE asked Asako ( to give an artistic interpretation of our production…We found her concept of transparency…” very interesting, says Donata Martelli, CEO at TecniCAM. This ever stronger bond with Art, which CAM has taken for the first time out of the usual venues in an apparently different sector, offers the opportunity to give an open interpretation  and simultaneously creates a new meaning, renovates besides keeping its roots, just like what happens in our company.   With time, Asako will offer her view thus making us understand that Art, like machine design at CAM, are not distant, and that they are rather linked by intuition, vision, emotion.
