San Benedetto, Scorzè plant, goes for Sacmi-RFST technology

OPERA 500 45T RFST labeller passes “acceptance test” with flying colours

San Benedetto, Italian multinational company leader in the field of mineral water,
isotonic, aseptic and softdrinks – with brands such as Guizza, Energade, Acqua Nepi, etc – has placed trust in Sacmi to boost its labelling flexibility at its Italian plant in Scorzè, Venice, a key production centre of prime importance for the Italian beverage market.

The installed machine is an automatic rotary labeller and is of the Sacmi patented RFST model series “Roll Fed Sleeve Technology”. One of the key features of this technology is its laser welding system; which allows strong sealing and hence outstanding high shrink applications of wrap-around labels directly from rollfed film. With RFST, labels are created and applied directly onto the bottles in a single process that significantly increases efficiency and saves on materials and energy.

More specifically, the machine installed in Scorzè applies steam heat shrunk wrap-around plastic film labels on 250 ml PET bottles for water and tea, at rates of up to 45,000 bottles per hour. The model, an OPERA 500 45T RFST, successfully passed San Bendetto’s strict “acceptance test” criteria, much to the satisfaction of Sacmi, which has once again proven the excellent technical-mechanical efficiency of its labellers, in keeping with today’s ever-changing market needs.

Other distinctive features on the OPERA series include the outstanding level of modularity and perfect integration of the label production and application processes in one single machine. Moreover, the use of laser technology means that no solvents, glues, or other agents are required for sealing, hence ensuring advantages in terms of product quality and environmental sustainability.
