POMINI RUBBER & PLASTICS S.r.l.
POMINI Rubber & Plastics is a technologically advanced, independent Italian company and a member of the HF MIXING GROUP, which was the result of the merger in 2011 with two other leading companies in the field of machines for the compounding and extrusion of plastics and semi-finished rubber products, namely the German company Harburg Freudenberger and the Anglo-American company Farrel. Being part of this group gave the advantage of closer focusing on products and markets. HF MIXING GROUP is active at worldwide level with an evenly distributed commercial network.
POMINI was founded by Luigi Pomini in 1886 as a workshop specializing in the manufacture of transmission gear components. In 1910 POMINI began to produce high-speed reduction gears, then in 1948 it was the turn of equipment for the iron and steel industry and of the first plastic and rubber processing machinery, as the company became a licensee of Bridge, Farrel and Mc Neil (rubber extruders, mixing machines and vulcanizing presses). In particular, machines for rubber processing ranged from hot feed extruders with direct feeding from the batch mixer – with pelletizing dies and roller dies – to cold feed extruders of the Pin Extruder type.
After some time, the production of plastic processing machinery was broadened to include continuous mixers and extruders for the petrochemical industry (with die-face cutters of the underwater type), hot feed single-screw extruders, co-rotating twin-screw extruders with die-face cutters, of the underwater type, with a liquid ring, or air extruders with spaghetti dies, all of which were employed for the manufacture of masters and compounds.
