Sacmi flies to Chicago to present at Pack Expo 2012 its range of technology for the beverage industry. As Solutions supplier Sacmi will put forward its comprehensive solutions that cover it all from cap and preform to bottle stretch-blowing, labelling and palletization.
Pack Expo will be held from 28th to 31st October 2012 at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois. With 125 countries taking part, this bi-annual international event is crucial for the packaging industry’s machine and technology sector.
Within this whole range of goods and services lie the outstanding advantages of continuous compression moulding. More, specifically, the latest machine to be developed by Sacmi, the CCM48SB, is characterised by excellent production performance (up to 1600 caps per minute), thanks to extremely short cycle times, and very low energy consumption rates of just 0.75 kWh/kg at maximum output rates.
The added value of this technology is boosted even further when a vision system is added, as for example the CHS 003 “stand alone” one. suitable for the quality control of plastic and aluminium screw caps and able to inspect up to 120,000 pieces an hour!
Huge advantages are offered also by the machines in the SBF (Stretch Blow Forming) range, which have from 6 to 24 stretch-blowing stations, are at the very apex of their category, ensuring output of 64,000 bottles per hour in the standard half-litre format. Point of strength on this line include the 1B=2b system, that is, the possibility of installing, on every machine in the range, a one-cavity mould for large bottles (up to 3 litres) or a 2-cavity mould for small bottles (up to 0.6 litres).
Moreover, the SACMI Group, via its subsidiary SACMI Filling, also provides a full range of cutting-edge complete liquid food filling machines that are divided into two distinct families: the mechanical range and the electronic range.
Lastly, there are the labelling machines, designed in Sacmi Verona that through the MOD (Modular) technology give an effective response to labelling needs requiring combined technologies.
The SACMI labeller series is also incorporatong FORMSLEEVE+, which allows shrink-wrap labels to be applied directly from the reel of film. With RFST labels are created and applied directly on bottles in a single seamless process, resulting in considerably greater efficiency and material, space and energy savings.
