Sacmi South Africa revving up for Propak 2016

Sacmi's reference 'hub' for the Southern part of the African continent is preparing for a new edition of the international exhibition

Not just a hope: a certainty. For a few years now, the African continent has been the focus of the strategic choices of Sacmi Group - which opened as many as three branches in the continent, one of which, Sacmi South Africa, is located in the most heavily industrialised State, of pivotal importance for further development and strategic positioning in the area.

 

In this scenario, the 2016 edition of Propak Africa is currently in preparation. The international event dedicated to the world of packaging is scheduled to take place on 15 through to 18 March in Nasrec, in the Johannesburg district. Several integrated solutions will be presented at the show, including the automatic FILLER LINEAR filling unit, designed for BAG-IN-BOX line management and featuring an automated system for bag loading, opening and closing. Controlled via a mass flowmeter, it carries out filling in an ultra-clean manner thanks to a special stainless steel valve. The machine structure is also made of steel and designed to ensure maximum solidity, reliability and efficiency over time, with hourly output rates of up to 900 bags in the 3 litres size.

 

State-of-the-art product handling systems and a touch screen interface, designed to enhance user-friendliness and speed up monitoring and size change-over operations, are among the features of the complete line consisting of two LINEAR units - an ideal solution for bag-in-box type packaging suitable for wine products, characterised by the automated management of all phases, from carton forming to filling, from the application of secondary packaging all the way to the final palletisation phase. Capable of ensuring extremely high productivity - as many as 25,000 bag-in-box wine units per day with a production cycle of 16 hours - this solution is also characterised by minimised maintenance and running requirements. Thanks to its high level of automation, the line can be efficiently managed by 2 operators only, while all operations concerning the bags - including the application of the handle to the carton and end-of-line palletising, carried out by an anthropomorphic robot - do not require any manual action.

 

A world-leading designer of advanced labelling systems, at Propak Africa Sacmi is also launching its new KUBE range, developed to reunite in a single, compact and fully modular machine a number of label application technologies, minimising time and operating cost requirements and facilitating use and maintenance operations. Flexible and highly innovative, the labeller design features labelling groups external to the carousel and makes it possible to convert the fixed station into a removable modular station at any time, without limiting the manufacturers' packaging options. The machine presented at the exhibition will feature the new self-adhesive labelling station KUBE ADH 40.

 

The Group has high expectations for Propak 2016, which it will attend as part of UCIMA (the Italian Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Association) (Hall 6, Stand 6HF) to join 450 other international players, expected to exhibit at the show in all its sectors of interest - ranging from packaging to food processing, plastics, printing and labelling.
