Food oil, major North African company chooses Opera labelling by Sacmi

Three all-new OPERA 200 RF labellers for one of the area’s key producers; this successful Sacmi solution offers efficiency and compactness, productivity and user-friendliness


A leading marketer of food oil – and part of an international Europe-based Group involved in fields that range from food oils to the manufacture of natural soaps, liquids and detergents – has chosen Sacmi to equip its production facilities in the area with three all-new labelling units capable of handling different container formats holding up to 5 litres of oil.
The result of a complex, ambitious business negotiation that saw Sacmi see off some tough competition, this order underscores the soundness of Sacmi OPERA roll-fed technology. That technology, as is known, is characterised by high productivity, efficiency and compact design, all combined with the Sacmi team’s unique ability to respond quickly and clearly to customer needs at the design stage.

More specifically, this Moroccan firm has purchased three OPERA 200 RF labellers. They offer a tried and tested solution that combines ultra-high production standards and versatility levels thanks to structural modularity and compatibility with a wide range of materials. In particular, the installed labellers, designed to manage output rates of up to 8,000 applications/hour, will apply long wrap-around OPP labels on 2 – 5-litre round and shaped containers.

The core characteristics of the OPERA series are extreme simplicity of use for workers, reliability and efficiency, plus high volumes and productivity rates: perfect for labelling ultra-light containers using the thinnest labels on the market. Equipped with an automatic reel splicing system – to eliminate line downtimes during the reel change – the labellers also feature a patented Sacmi system for electronic bottle orientation and a vision system to check for label presence-absence or incorrect application.

In addition to the various competitive advantages offered by the solution – especially the automatic splicing system which minimises line downtimes – the customer’s investment choice was also influenced by the Sacmi team’s ability to contribute to the development – right from the design stage – of carefully targeted solutions: all in keeping with the specific production requirements of a customer operating in the mature, highly competitive food oil bottling and labelling sector.

Thanks to this order, Sacmi has reinforced its role as a key partner to the local bottling industry. It has done so in an area with one of the highest growth and development potentials (i.e. North Africa), one already home to three of the Group’s African branches (Sacmi North Africa, the headquarters based in Casablanca, is the hub for all beverage industry sales and after-sales services). At the same time, the customer parent company’s role as a global player lays the foundations for a high-level partnership that both enterprises aim to reinforce in the future and so to increase their international market penetration capabilities.
