SACMI's dual cavity blower, ideal for the manufacture of small-medium formats, to play a central role alongside complete 'pellet to pallet' PET processing solutions
Packaging as an economic driver and a key aspect of the move towards Industry 4.0. This will be the focus of the 2018 edition of Hispack, the most important Iberian packaging technology fair, to be held in the Barcelona trade fair district from 8 to 11 May.
This is a regular event for SACMI, one crucial to developing business on the Spanish market. At the coming edition of Hispack a pivotal role will be played by complete PET processing solutions that cover everything from raw materials to end- of-line solutions. The only company in the world able to cover, with its own technology, every aspect of the beverage production line, SACMI will, at Barcelona, be presenting HeroLINE, a new-concept plant that puts Industry 4.0 principles into sound practice.
Cap and preform production – aided and synchronised by the automatic SACMI CPB Link magazine – are smoothly integrated with all the downstream filling, blowing and labelling systems, thus reducing logistics costs and paving the way for a lightweight future. Of particular relevance to the Spanish market is the SACMI SBF stretch-blow moulding solution, renowned for its "dual cavity, double speed" performance. In practice, the SACMI blower can form one or two bottles in the same mould simultaneously, making it the perfect small format management response.
Single serve and ready-to- drink products – which are gaining ground on several international markets – can thus be managed optimally thanks to a high-productivity machine that is smoothly integrated both upstream and downstream, with solutions that incorporate the very best technology on the market. From this standpoint, SACMI's complete labelling systems (characterised by modularity, outstanding versatility) also deserve a special mention as they span multiple technologies and labelling techniques: moreover, they incorporate design features (e.g. automatic reel splicing) that eliminate machine and line downtimes.
Active on the Spanish market through SACMI Beverage Iberica – the hub for all assistance and after-market services – SACMI will be at Hispack with a 200 m 2 display area (hall 1, stand C320). Here, the Group's tech team and representatives from the Spanish branch will be at the disposal of the over 38,000 visitors expected to attend, ready to illustrate the state of the art (and the future) of packaging-beverage lines.
