An outstanding combination of know-how in managing plastics throughout diverse processes puts SIPA in a highly strategic position in an environment in constant flux.
Visitors to the SIPA stand, A4/304, will gain a new perspective on packaging opportunities, with a full-immersive experience in a world of new possibilities. Demonstrations and displays will provide a deep insight into SIPA’s outstanding capabilities in providing customized solutions with the flexibility to adapt to the fast-changing market, across diverse technologies. Line integration, filling, sustainability, and digitization will be key focus points
Innovations in single- and two-stage technologies
Running all through the show will be SIPA’s latest innovation in stretch-blow molding technology, an XTRA rotary system producing 100-mL drinks containers. It will be processing 100% post-consumer recycled PET, at speeds never seen before. A particular focus will be given over to extremely simple and fast mold changeover and to advanced controls, with a stand-alone XTRA HMI showing how easy process set-up can be, thanks to a Process Wizard. This feature is particularly important, given the continuing shortage in many places of skilled personnel.
Also on the stand will be a single-stage ISBM system, an ECS SP80, which SIPA will be using to demonstrate how flexible the technology can be in production of a wide variety of containers – in this case, miniatures for liqueurs. The ability to respond to fast-changing customer and market requirements is more important than ever today, especially with the current substantial shortfall in availability of glass bottles.
Capabilities in mold making for bottles and preforms
SIPA’s ability to develop and produce high-performance, high-cavitation hot-runner injection molds will be demonstrated. On display will be a mold optimized to enable the highest preform production rate in the market. Also important for the future will be the capacity the company has to respond to customer calls for design modifications driven by changes in legislative requirement for bottle caps, which are likely to affect bottle neck designs.
All the angles covered
The stand will include a large area dedicated to packaging solutions, with in-depth displays showing SIPA’s capabilities in packaging design and engineering, to further demonstrate it has all the angles covered, from concept to finished, filled, fully recyclable container.
At the center of the SIPA stand will be information zones dedicated respectively to line integration, sustainability, and digitization.
Conceiving, developing, and delivering fully integrated production systems that exactly fit the requirements of customers is one of SIPA’s special powers. Getting its world premiere at Drinktec is the Xtreme Renew Sincro Cube system for creating filled and capped bottles from 100% rPET flakes in a single step. It is the ultimate demonstration of SIPA’s strengths in using advanced engineering to devise fully integrated and highly flexible systems that pose little limit on customer needs and imagination.
