i4smallparts is the service provided by Imel that, thanks to its staff with long experience in the development of processes for small parts and in the design of customized machines, will be able to build together with you the most reliable and economical process to achieve your goal.

Processes that we are able to design embrace various families of finished products such as:

high fashion (buckles, buttons, clips, zips, footwear accessories…)
industrial small parts (gaskets, springs, rivets, screws, etc.)
costume jewelry
furnishing accessories
cosmetics (capsules, caps, etc.)

The process will be defined by the Imel team right from the preparation phase of the pieces (brushing, flaming …) up to the finishing (mechanical tumbling, grinding, sanding, etc.) and also to the sealing tests.
We are able to define the processes according to the basic material and the desired technical and aesthetic characteristics.
The technical characteristics refer to the resistance required according to the environment of use of the finished product, that is resistance to corrosion, chemical agents, UV rays, water / washes ..

And finally, the aesthetic characteristics that, above all in the fashion markets, become the fundamental requirement and often the most difficult to guarantee. We are talking about various metal shades, pearly colors, metallic effects, soft touch rubber-coated, color combinations, vintage effects , fixing on galvanic to ensure the seal over time etc.

In conclusion, if you are afraid of buying a painting machine and not being able to set it up for the product you want, Imel has the solution for you.


To complete the definition of the ideal process for you, i4smallparts is able to supply you with the customized machines, which are the heart of the process itself:
Rotover is the machine that Imel starts to sell in the 70’s and that still today establish a definitive benchmark for versatility, ease of use and price.
In its last version, Rotover 130 R2 offers a new software and an improved ergonomics.
