ProPak 2022, SACMI leads the African market in rigid packaging technologies

Sacmi Imola S.C. Imola, Italy

SACMI returns to ProPak Africa, the international packaging&processing fair being held in South Africa (Johannesburg Expo Centre) from 8 to 11 March 2022. The fair is organized every three years and its 2022 edition follows a period of extraordinary continent-wide growth in installed production capacity across all SACMI rigid packaging technologies businesses. For example, in Plastic Closures alone, 2020 saw the continent achieve an increase of over 60% and in 2021 it became SACMI’s main market for the machines and systems for this sector.

Crown Caps mean SACMI

The global crown cap manufacturing market is a stable one in which SACMI technology has played a leading role for decades. By expanding the range beyond traditional ultra-high productivity crown cap lines to include complete solutions such as twist-off and pull-ring lines and new multi-material caps, SACMI has diversified its technology for the aluminum caps sector, with extraordinary results that have won immediate market acclaim.
As in the plastics sector, SACMI complements its metal closures range with fast-evolving Computer Vision systems; at every stage of production, the latter are making ‘vision’ systems true ‘process monitors’, ensuring they can predict problems on the line, reduce downtimes and boost plant availability and performance.
