SACMI Beverage and Packaging&Chocolate to showcase all the latest in terms of technology and service at Pack Expo Vegas. Team SACMI USA will be out in force, illustrating the versatility, personalisation, sustainability and close support that customers can count on, from initial design to after-sales assistance
Integrated, personalised, sustainable, just-in-time. Four factors that sum up SACMI in the States where, from the SACMI USA headquarters in Des Moines, we reach across the entire country with one overriding goal: customer satisfaction.
Pack Expo Vegas (Las Vegas Convention Centre, 23-25 September 2019) offers a perfect opportunity to showcase our new, extended technological range alongside a new high-added-value service package that's tailor-made to meet the needs of US customers.
The world's only competitor providing proprietary technology along the entire beverage line, SACMI offers, for 2019, a complete range that builds further on the one-stop shopping principle, making us a sole provider capable of responding to the market's every manufacturing need.
For example, the new range of XL stretch-blow moulders extends the success of the double-cavity (and double speed) solution - already a big hit worldwide with manufacturers of small-medium sizes - to formats as large as 12 litres.
Moreover, all stretch-blow solutions are designed to work in-line with SACMI electronic-volumetric fillers, equipped with innovative neck-type feed systems and electronic control of every filling stage; such fillers are also ergonomic and low-maintenance. The result? A complete yet compact system, also available as a COMBO version to smooth installation on existing plants.
An all-round partner, from raw material to final product, SACMI provides complete solutions upstream and downstream from the bottling line. Playing a pivotal role at Pack Expo Vegas will be SACMI's broad bottle/container labelling range, capable of responding to any production requirement. More specifically, SACMI will showcase a KUBE labeller, noteworthy for an unrivalled versatility that stems from compatibility with multiple technologies and labelling systems (the exhibited machine is for self-adhesive labelling). Renowned for its unique adaptability, KUBE goes hand in hand with a wider SACMI machine set designed with high productivity in mind, such as the OPERA Modular range, the world-leading rotary labelling solution. As the name suggests, modularity maximises performance and usability across a broad application range.
There are also major developments as regards CCM, SACMI's flagship plastic capsule manufacturing technology; this now has a multilayer configuration – for the sustainable manufacture of single serve capsules – and includes new PET applications. With CBF, SACMI extends the intrinsic advantages of this first-class technology to the dairy and pharma sectors.
On the preform production front SACMI IPS lets customers give PET - the recyclable raw material par excellence - a 'second life'; it does so by allowing the manufacture of preforms made of up to 100% rPET (using standard machines) and permitting the use of raw materials in recycled flake form in quantities of up to 50%. A decisive swing towards sustainability, then, all with a tried and tested platform and SACMI-guaranteed assistance before, during and after the sale.
Similarly, flexibility and personalisation are also the hallmarks of the SACMI Packaging&Chocolate range. More specifically, in Las Vegas the Division will be presenting for the 'from oven to case' bakery sector, designed for the primary or secondary packaging of very delicate or irregularly shaped bakery items.
The solution consists of a loading system equipped with robot “fast pickers” featuring the exclusive Smart Pick system; the latter groups biscuits before sending them to a SACMI JT PRO packaging machine and then a box form-fill-seal unit (from the Active series).
With SACMI Packaging&Chocolate customers can count on all the reliability of SACMI-built solutions, approved and certified by key players in the food industry. Designed - like the entire SACMI Packaging & Chocolate machine range - to conform to Industry 4.0 standards, this solution combines logistical efficiency (thanks to integration of primary packaging solutions with secondary packaging lines) with low maintenance requirements.
Customers visiting the SACMI USA and SACMI Packaging & Chocolate stands will have a great opportunity to get a close look at the extensive after-sales services provided to the US market; a sales & technical team is available 24/7, alongside new remote assistance services and the new SACMI S.P.A.C.E. (Sacmi Portal for Aftersales and Customer service Excellence), which interlinks all machine technical assistance, training and spare parts services.
