Every year the world consumes over six hundred billion litres of beverages of every kind - and that figure continues to grow steadily. This huge market is the backdrop to Simei 2011, the world’s biggest exhibition dedicated to wine-making and the production, bottling and packaging of drinks in general: this key event will be held at the “FieraMilano” trade fair district in Rho on the outskirts of Milan from 22nd to 26th November 2011.
It’s a not-to-be-missed appointment for Sacmi: we’ll be in Milan in Hall 15, stand E11/15 with Sacmi Beverage, the Group business unit that supplies machines and ‘turnkey’ plants, providing everything from bottling systems to packaging machines, from product design and styling to complete plant design, handling systems included.
To begin with, Sacmi Group company and packaging technology specialist Sacmi Pakim will be displaying the new MONOBIB, a production island that combines all the filling and packaging functions needed to make Bag-in-Box products: it consists of a box forming unit with hot melt closure, a bag filler and a box closure system (also hot melt). another innovative Sacmi Pakim system on show is LINEAR, for the production of Bag-in-Box packages characterised by optimal preservation of the product – wine, food oil or water, yet also fruit juices, concentrates, detergents etc. – which, once again, never comes into contact with air.
Last but not least, FILL BAG is an automated bag-in-box cutting, forming and filling system that Sacmi Pakim provides complete with a product integrity guarantee (oxygen absorption below 0.5 PPM).
Simei will also be the showcase for another Sacmi band “pillar” of the beverage industry, the labelling machine range. For this key Milan-based fair we’ve selected the OPERA 400 COMBI by Sacmi Labelling. Incorporating a combination of several technologies – cold glue and self-adhesive – OPERA 400 COMBI offers the perfect response to the labelling industry’s demand for flexibility.
From labelling to end-of-line solutions, with the MARIS 1 K palletizer robot by Sacmi Packaging, with single or dual feed depending on line production capacity.
The last innovation being taken to Simei also regards end-of-line solutions: a ground-breaking laser-guide vehicle (LGV) for pallet handling. This will be presented by Sima, another Group company specialising in the design and production of laser-guided industrial handling systems.
