Latest Sacmi innovations for caps and labels to go on show in Shanghai

At CBST 2015 (4-6 November) Sacmi will be presenting the CCM 48 SC and the ARENA RF labeller produced directly by Sacmi Nanhai

Over 20,000 professional visitors are expected to attend the seventh edition of the China International Beverage Industry Exhibition on Science & Technology (CBST), to be held at the newInternational Expo Centre of Shanghai from 4 to 6 November 2015.
The country’s biggest such event, it is held every two years and showcases trends and technologies within the beverage industry. CBST 2015 will see Sacmi play a pivotal role with its CCM 48SC, a compression press that stands out on account of high specific productivity, excellent cap quality and optimised energy consumption.

The CCM 48SC presented at CBST (hall W1, stand 1D02) will, more specifically, be equipped with a mould suitable for the manufacture of S30W3-type HDPE (high density polyethylene) single-piece caps for still water: with a diameter of 29 mm and weighing just 1.85 g, they have specially been designed for this market. This design is part of the Sacmi range developed, in recent years, to allow the manufacture of ever-lighter caps and containers as part of a green packaging policy that aims to optimise energy and raw material consumption while lowering transport costs.

The press on show at the fair will also be equipped with COOL+, the innovative ‘enhanced cooling’ mould which features a dual cooling circuit that acts closer (and therefore more effectively) to where it’s needed (i.e. on the tamper band and plug). Launched on the market in 2013, dozens of COOL+ mould sets have already been installed all around the globe. On the one hand COOL+ gives manufacturers, alongside the intrinsic advantages of all CCM machines, capsules of excellent quality with very short cycle times (35% less than with alternative technologies); on the other hand it offers productivity that, in the case of the caps being made at the fair, can reach 1,600 caps per minute with just 48 moulds (cycle time 1.8 seconds).

In addition to the innovative cap manufacturing line, visitors to CBST will be able to take a close look at the Group’s range of integrated beverage & packaging solutions, which enjoy close support in China thanks to local companies Sacmi Shanghai and Sacmi Nanhai; both the latter have their own production facilities and spare parts/after-sales services and constitute the main in-country support hub. Sacmi Nanhai, in fact, is where the Arena RF labeller, specifically designed for the Chinese market, is made. Soon to be showcased on the Group stand, the labeller features the roll-fed technology in which Sacmi is the undisputed market leader with highly innovative, high performance solutions. The advantages of this machine – on the market for just two years and already setting the standard for the local beverage industry – are outstanding flexibility of use and output, which can reach 36,000 bottles/containers an hour.

Further advantages include excellent access to machine parts (thus making maintenance tasks easier and allowing for fast size changeovers), a user-friendly operator interface and the innovative self-cleaning labelling station equipped with devices designed to optimise and reduce glue consumption. Designed, as is the Sacmi tradition, to the most exacting quality and reliability standards, the ARENA RF labeller provides an effective response to the requirements of local producers. It does this by combining maximum productivity and extensive flexibility plus the reliability one expects from European technology, not to mention the enormous logistical and sales advantages that stem from direct in-China production. The Sacmi strategy is, then, a far-sighted one: while its technological heart remains in Italy, for decades it has been operating globally with local production facilities and branches capable of providing close customer support from the design stage and throughout the working life of the machine or plant; moreover, added value and assurance is provided by the Group’s Research & Development Center, certified by the top international players in the industry.
