Self standing pouches now available in webbed format

Sacmi is taking up the challenge posed by the flexible wine and water packaging sector by offering a new integrated solution for the automated control of self-standing pouches

A specialised supplier of complete plants for the filling, packaging and palletization of flexible packages, Sacmi Packaging is bringing innovation to the self-standing pouches sector: these flexible drink containers (for example, the 3-litre wine pouch is particularly popular in central and northern Europe) differ from traditional pouches as they stand up alone and do not need to be contained in a box.

Appreciated by the market on account of their flexibility – to begin with, they are excellent for the application of high-grade graphics – these flexible, boxless pouches were, until now, characterised by not inconsiderable production difficulties: firstly, unlike traditional pouches, their infeed into the machine could not be automated as the pouches were supplied individually and were not webbed together. Now, thanks to an important agreement with Swedish firm Quadpak – which makes the pouches – Sacmi can offer the market continuously-linked ‘webbed’ self-standing pouches that allow fully automated machine infeed.

This gives manufacturers major advantages, the biggest being the total absence of manual tasks during loading, filling and unloading. Intended, in particular, for the wine and water sectors, self-standing webbed pouches are rapidly increasing market shares in central-northern Europe, starting with the strategic French market. Sacmi sees the solution as adding considerable value to an already comprehensive plant range that, based on a single technological platform (bag-in-box filling machines characterised by solutions that ensure efficient, totally ultra-clean filling control), lets manufacturers handle traditional webbed bags, self-standing single pouches and, lastly, the new self-standing webbed pouches.

This fully integrated turnkey range will play a starring role on the Sacmi stand at Simei 2015, the international wine and bottling technology fair being held at Fiera Milano (Milan) from 3rd to 6th November 2015- HALL 15 E13/E11. More specifically, the ability to handle all pouch types on the same platform lets manufacturers carry out fully automated production, at no additional cost, of both small decorated lots (e.g. for special events, promotional purposes, trade fairs etc.) and large-scale batches while benefitting from all the reliability, precision and finished product quality typical of all Sacmi filling solutions.
