“No limit to imagination” – Sacmi presents the new COLORA CAP in the United States

The Group is a leading participant at the Plastic Caps & Closures Conference (Chicago, Illinois, 29 to 31 August 2016), with a presentation dedicated to technological innovation with "high product impact”

No limit to imagination. A slogan that in Sacmi’s case, translates into a new technology for decorating caps, designed to complement plant and machinery used all over the world for manufacturing plastic caps – a field in which Sacmi is the world leader – with a solution capable of highlighting essential aspects for developing the brand and showcasing the product.

It is the new COLORA CAP, the machine for digital decoration of plastic caps that will be presented at the Plastic Caps & Closure Conference in Chicago, the sector’s most important symposium in North America and a key occasion internationally for taking a close look at the latest innovations for processes and products in the packaging-beverages sector. The 2016 conference, being hosted at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago from 29 – 31 August, sees the participation of Sacmi with a presentation by Marco Ferri, North America area sales manager for Sacmi’s Closures & Containers Division.

The core of the presentation, entitled "Technological innovation with high product impact", will be dedicated to the potential of the COLORA CAP solution developed by Intesa, the Sacmi Group company specialising in the design and marketing of machines for digital decoration in the ceramics and food & plastics sectors. This further step in the evolution of COLORA enables digital printing even on coloured caps, with applications of the utmost interest both for the dairy and the CSD drinks sectors, to maximise the brand and to increase product recognition, and for the development of marketing campaigns with dedicated collections (sport, animated cartoon characters, etc.).

Objectives which, thanks to Sacmi technology, are now within reach: indeed, with the new COLORA CAP, Sacmi has added unique features in terms of flexibility, reduction in time taken for size changeovers, and increases in logistics efficiency to the unlimited colour development and the ultra-high definition of the decoration, the distinctive elements of the digital decoration technology. Proof can be found in the international market, where some of the most important brands in the sector have already installed the new machine.

Highly automated, - the solution is offered by Sacmi complete with cap transport system, heating, plasma surface treatment and corona treatment, digital decoration and drying - the new COLORA CAP has passed the "low migration" test for CMYK inks at independent certified laboratories, and is equipped with an integrated quality control system, for inspecting the qualitative characteristics of both the capsule and the decoration directly on the line, and at very high speed.

The result? The releasing of the full marketing potential, thanks to the possibility of printing very high resolution images on caps, changing the decoration with a mere click, directly on the line and without the need to stock dedicated product lines. All in a strategic market such as North America, the home of the sector’s major multinationals and a strategic area for the development and growth prospects of the Sacmi Group, which has been serving the area for many years through its own subsidiary, Sacmi USA, and its efficient spare parts and after sales service.
