Efficient, reliable and, above all - thanks to its aseptic characteristics - designed to ensure perfect product integrity. This, in a nutshell, is the new aseptic rotary filler for Bag in Box containers, to be presented for the very first time by Sacmi at Simei 2013, the international wine-making machine fair to be held in Milan from 12th to 16th November.
Several design aspects allow Sacmi to offer the outstanding process innovation that is generating market-wide interest. To begin with there is the filling chamber, designed to maximise safety with regard to the parameters that ensure aseptic conditions during production. These components, which govern the filling process, have been built by Sacmi in keeping with a ‘hygienic’ design process that ensures they are easily washed and sanitised.
Compactness, aseptic conditions, extremely short sterilisation times and solutions designed to prevent not just contamination but also any product leakage: these, then, are the key characteristics of the machine Sacmi will be showcasing at Simei together with other solutions that have already been tried and tested on the market, such as the integrated filling unit, first presented in 2012.
Designed and built at Sacmi Pakim – the Sacmi Group company that specializes in designing, producing and marketing packaging solutions – Bag in Box lies at the core of a comprehensive turnkey range that covers the entire packaging line, from the filling-packaging combi unit, made entirely of stainless steel, to the handle application and pick and place units.
The key strength of this integrated filling-packaging unit, which combines all the functions needed to create the characteristic Bag in Box packages – from carton forming with hot melt closure to filling, including in-box bag insertion and box closure – is the high degree of automation, which allows efficient control of 1.5, 2, 3, 5 and 10-20 litre bags.
And since the market demands both painstaking attention to quality and constant cost control, the Bag in Box solution is highly attractive because the pack is made of low cost materials such as plastic film and cardboard.
Completing the Sacmi range is the semi-automatic Fillbag, model, made entirely of stainless steel, suitable for sizes from 1.5 to 25 litres and providing output rates of up to 300 pcs/hour.
