The new ZPE range of gearboxes for single-screw extruders (evolution of the RPU gearbox) offering extraordinary performances is born. The very high quality and the excellent reliability of these new gearboxes led Zambello to the worldwide leadership in this field. In the same year also the production of gearboxes for injection presses in the electric version (also hybrid version) is started. The first catalogue for this range under the name MHP3 is published.
