Chemical Fibers Machinery Producer since 1968

MAE’s history begins in the late sixties when the company was mainly focused on producing machinery and components for the biggest Italian Man-Made fibers producers such as Montefibre, SNIA and ENI.

In the following decades MAE’s experience progressively increased from the production of simple components to the more complex assemblies and complete units, entire lines and full complete plants. Consequently our design competences grew and today MAE can be considered a strong partner for any fiber producer willing to outsource the development of important portions of their facilities.

Carbon Fiber PAN Precursor has now become MAE’s core business. We design and build complete plants for PAN Precursor with small production capacity (Lab Scale), medium capacity (Pilot Scale or Small Industrial Scale), and large capacity (Industrial Scale).

MAE Specializations

Our specialization covers: Polymerization lines with different solvent technologies, wet or dry-jet Spinning lines and also specific key equipment of the Carbonization line like: Fiber Tensioning System, Surface Treatment, Sizing, Non-contact or Contact Dryers.

Furthermore, some specific MAE’s products like the SDC Jumbo Crimpers for cotton type PET, spunbonding plants for 100% recycled PET are considered today as the state-of-the art benchmark in their field.

In the vast range of MAE facilities are also available a Material/Textile laboratory, Pilot Spinning Lines and a Rapid Prototyping Unit for Client trials, product development, testing and investigations.


MAE is a Machinery Manufacturing Company, specialised in the engineering and manufacturing of units and complete lines for Monomers and Polymers, processing in the form of fibers or foams.

MAE’s extended services range from the process design to the assembly, installation and testing of complete production lines and plants.
