Innovative Made-in-Sacmi technology will soon be showcased at the three-annual Interpack fair in Düsseldorf from 8th to 14th May 2014, with its own 540 m2 display area in hall 8, stand 8AE03.
The displayed machines will include the 32-cavity CCM, a compression press for the manufacture of plastic caps, ensuring considerable advantages on the energy-saving and productivity fronts. Equipped with an innovative ‘COOL+’ mould designed to enhance the efficiency of the cooling process even further, at the fair the CCM32 will be making soft drink closures with cycle times of approximately 2 seconds. A Sacmi-made 2-camera CVS3000 Quality Control system integrated on the CCM ensures 100% guaranteed cap quality. Sacmi will also be making the very most of the opportunities introducing COLORA CAP, the new on-cap digital printing system that allows high-definition images to be printed directly on the production line. The Sacmi CVS3000 Quality Control system, stationed both upstream and downstream from COLORA CAP, ensures that only flawless caps are decorated and only those with fault-free images are used in bottling.
Moving on to labelling we will find the flagship FORMSLEEVE+ from Sacmi Verona, the new modular labeller designed to form the sleeve directly in the machine from the roll using natural bonding liquids thus cutting label costs by over 20%. Product quality is guaranteed by the LVS360 vision system which, thanks to innovative software, unrolls the 3-D image provided by the 4 cameras to form a 2-D image that allows inspection of 100% of the label.
On the quality control front, Sacmi will be presenting the PVS and CHS vision. The PVS system, designed to eliminate potential defects, can be directly installed on the line next to the press and can test up to 36,000 preforms an hour at set time intervals. Alongside the PVS, Sacmi also offers the new CHS cap control system: equipped with HD video cameras (series CVS 3000) and capable of effecting ultra-reliable inspection of every side of the cap.
To complete the picture, it will also be showcased the TF 70 modular tray former designed by Sacmi Packaging; for the production of all tray type, up to 50 pieces per minute with possibility of working in line with the new stacker and so manage two trays in parallel, up to a maximum length of 800 mm, and make stacks of unlimited height.
