Sacmi CBF wins the FBE Award in Shanghai

Versatility and weight reduction - which means greater competitiveness, quality and process repeatability - have made this technology a true winner. And with a complete solution just supplied to a major player on the local dairy market, the positive feedback keeps on coming.

Sacmi CBF technology has won the FBE Award (Food Beverage Engineer Annual Innovation Production Award). This prestigious prize, assigned at the third Food Beverage Equipment and Engineer Summit in Shanghai, aims to identify the best technology on the blow moulding market.

CBF merges the very best characteristics of alternative container-making technologies (e.g. EBM, IBM, ISBM), a fact that grabbed the jury's attention and saw the Sacmi-developed process acknowledged for its intrinsic advantages: excellent thermodynamic stability, no gate on the bottom of the container, high productivity and precision-moulded necks. When combined with the excellent flexibility that stems from being able to use different resins, these factors make this solution ideal for the dairy sector where weight reduction and process versatility are in great demand.

Needless to say, such characteristics are greatly appreciated by those key global players that have invested in CBF. The latter now includes a leading local dairy producer that has purchased the Sacmi solution to produce 200 ml HDPE containers. Ultra-fast cycle times (just 7 seconds for this specific application) and weights no greater than 15.5-19 grams have been combined with high quality, process repeatability and a weight reduction of some 20%, ensuring savings in terms of both energy and raw materials. Long-lasting reliability - which stems from lower temperatures that prevent stress on vital machine parts - completes the picture.

Companies investing in our solutions can also count on the far-reaching presence of the Sacmi Group, which has local branches worldwide and provides a quick-response consultancy and after-sales assistance service. More specifically, the Sacmi Shanghai branch's highly qualified technicians provide close customer support right from the design stage and help implement innovative solutions that meet Industry 4.0 requisites.
