On show at Brau Beviale 2018, with the Group’s presentation of the latest technological developments in filling and labelling. The strong points of the offer are solutions specially designed for this sector that ensure maximum reliability and versatility of use
Of particular interest, alongside the traditional fillers recognised and appreciated throughout the world, is the new SACMI system for combined filling of bottles (either glass or aluminium) and cans, the ideal solution for the emerging craft brewery sector. The new SACMI monobloc is composed of a rinser and a filler, which, thanks to a rapid format change system, can handle either bottles or cans, followed by a capper for bottles and a standard seamer for cans.
The idea of “two-in-one” filling is achieved thanks to an innovative “four-in-one machine block” (rinser + filler + capper + seamer). The system is highly versatile, and so SACMI has filed a patent request, with solutions from 12 to 50 filling valves and production speeds from 10,000 a 24,000 bph/cph in the 33 cl format.
These include LabelCheck-360, the latest evolution in the range developed by the SACMI Automation & Inspection Systems Division, with a renewed structure (light alloy in place of the traditional stainless steel) and consolidated CVS360-3D software, allowing total quality control both of the label (presence-absence, orientation, faulty or mixed application, colour characteristics, etc.) and of the entire bottle body, including the cap.
The capacity of the system to efficiently identify all types of defects and to operate perfectly in line with the labeller makes the SACMI solution the ideal response to producers’ needs and the constant search for new solutions combining versatility, efficiency and total quality control.
