An all-round plant engineer for the beverage sector, the Sacmi Group stands out on account of a capacity to operate efficiently across five continents, with sales offices and manufacturing facilities located on all the Group’s main target markets. These include Sacmi Nanhai, pivotal to the Chinese market and producer of the ARENA range of labellers to be displayed at China Brew&Beverage (11-14 October 2016, Shanghai International Expo Centre), the huge biannual fair dedicated to beverage processing/technology that, in this 12th edition, is expected to attract at least 52,000 specialised operators from all over the globe.
Labelling: product and market specialists
The labelling solutions designed and marketed by Sacmi stand out on the market thanks to their efficiency and flexibility. Such solutions include the ARENA RF, the labeller produced directly by Sacmi Nanhai; designed to respond to local manufacturers’ specific needs for machines that are high-performance yet simple, it is characterised by outstanding flexibility of use, very high productivity and minimum label and/or size changeover times.
Plastic caps: productivity and low consumption
Beverage&packaging is a sector in which Sacmi has led the way for decades. It has produced pioneering innovations that have gone on to become the international industry standard and has steadily increased its worldwide market shares. Among these achievements, compression technology for the manufacture of closures is particularly impressive as it allows outstanding productivity (up to 2,000 caps a minute for a 48-cavity machine), maximum quality and ultra-low energy consumption.
“Total” quality control of the cap...
Sacmi has won heightened recognition for the reliability of its plant engineering solutions on Asian markets where it has observed, on the part of local producers, growing demand for high-level technological solutions. Sacmi provides added value by designing integrated inspection and quality control systems for every stage of the beverage production cycle: these include systems that execute high speed cap inspection directly in the line at the press outlet.
...and every other manufacturing step
All solutions developed by Sacmi’s Automation&Service Division ensure interoperability, user-friendliness and, of course, excellent inspection speed and precision. The all-seeing “director” of such systems (from plastic&metal cap control to inspection of metal packaging, preforms and labelled containers) is the cutting-edge software, fully designed by Sacmi and shared on all proposed solutions.
Close to the market, close to the customer
In addition to numerous new references recently obtained in China – where Sacmi has manufacturing and after-sales assistance facilities such as Sacmi Shanghai and Sacmi Nanhai – expectations for the 12th edition of CCB are also being raised by the Chinese market’s renewed demand for technological and plant engineering solutions with outstanding energy efficiency: this, indeed, is an intrinsic advantage of many technologies developed by Sacmi, a company that has successfully inaugurated and exported green packaging worldwide.
