Appointment on 15 September 2015 in Sacmi, Imola with a day dedicated to the technological solutions and integrated plants for the beverage industry, in the name of productivity, versatility and energy saving.

Extremely dynamic and competitive, the beverage industry is continuously seeking solutions that can combine productivity and efficiency to flexibility and versatility of the machines, to respond in real time to the requirements of the market, all accompanied by a pressing and constant requirement for optimisation of consumptions and costs.

Sacmi, the only global player capable of proposing integrated cap-preform-bottle solutions, next 15 September 2015 promotes the first "Food & Beverage Plastic Day", to illustrate to the specialised operators project H.E.R.O. (High Efficiency Resource Optimisation) applied to the beverage supply chain.

From integration between blowing and filling to the compression presses for the production of caps, Sacmi takes the opportunity of the first Food & Beverage Plastic Day to display to the operators the latest development of the IPS (Injection Preform Moulding) range, IPS400, the machine for the production of preforms designed to handle moulds up to 128 cavities. Characterised by the lowest cycle times in the industry, IPS 400 backs up, to the recognised advantages of the previous range, significant innovations such as the automated unloading of the preform system, the different circuitry inside the plasticising unit - to guarantee the best quality of the PET - and the particular configuration of the cooling station of the preforms, where the kinetic energy of the gripper plate is recovered, in the deceleration stage, and reconverted into electrical energy.

Also in this case, Sacmi accompanies the technological innovation with a complete proposal from the point of view of process integration: Sacmi CPB LINK is the new high automation dynamic buffer that enables the integration of production of caps and preforms in the bottling line, in view of energy savings (H.E.R.O.) and logistics, while increasing at the same time the hygienic safety of the process.

Among the focuses of the day of work, there are also the developments of the Colora Cap system for high definition digital press, of caps and closures, now usable, after years of developments and researches, even on coloured caps. The fast loading of graphic files and the instant quick change of images makes the system suitable for the decoration of capsules for promotional campaigns, events and award ceremonies.

To complete the picture, the CBF (Compression Blow Forming) technology, studied in view of the green packaging, that is, reduction of weights – at equal performance – of containers up to 500 ml for the dairy industry, and the solutions for inspection developed for the different businesses, machines and plant solutions of the Group.

The day of work - followed by a gala dinner - will end with a visit to the R&S Beverage laboratory, where are developed and tested by Sacmi the solutions later industrialised and proposed to the market. A certified structure by the top global players in the beverage chain industry, capable to accompany the customer right from the design stage by combining the guarantee on the final result to the high capacity of customisation of solutions, in line with the most modern and diversified needs of the customer and the market.
