On an increasingly demanding market that seeks to combine the highest product quality with the best possible process versatility and efficiency, post-processing cap customization offers a welcome solution.
Quality. The world’s leading provider of compression technology, SACMI has developed cap tamper-evident band slitting and folding solutions that maximize the performance of parts subject to wear. These include the slitting tools and, more specifically, the blade, which plays a key role in ensuring cap quality and, ultimately, a satisfactory customer consumption experience.
Consistency. Thanks to the better-quality cut, manufacturers can rely on consistent performance and enjoy greater scope for cap customization. Repeatability, plus constant and measurable increases in performance and efficiency, are the hallmarks of the solution. Thanks to exact, micrometric-precise band slitting, i-Slit lets manufacturers accurately monitor all the technical and functional characteristics of the tamper-evident band.
Flexibility – To meet all cap manufacturing needs, i-Slit consists of three distinct product lines (Standard, Plus and Top). Special steel tempering and machining processes ensure that all the proposed configurations provide outstanding blade durability and perfect process repeatability over time. Diversified and customized even in terms of its packaging, the i-Slit range helps customers develop top quality cap lines that always meet the strictest market standards.
SACMI provides customers with close support to help them select the blade type that best matches their specific production variables. These range from characteristics concerning cap functionality and the weight-geometry of the neck-cap system to the type of material and dye: all variables that affect the durability of the cutting accessory.
Thanks to decades of experience in developing caps alongside the main international converters and brand owners, SACMI can provide specialized case-by-case advice on the best, most suitable solution. A combination of supply-side flexibility, guaranteed delivery times and outstanding performance also make i-Slit the perfect choice both for SACMI customers who already use compression technology, and cap manufacturers who use other molding techniques.
Plant integration perspective. SACMI provides i-Slit in synergy with its range of SFM slitting and folding machines. Both established SACMI customers, who already have a slitting solution, and companies that use alternative molding technologies can test the potential of i-Slit on their own lines.
