Sacmi-designed innovation for the beverage industry – and, more importantly, its labelling solutions – will be taking centre stage at Dubai Drink Technology 2011, to be held in the capital of the United Arab Emirates from 29th November to 1st December. Visitors to our 48 m2 exhibition stand, Hall 2&3, stand 24 at the Dubai International Conventions & Exhibition Centre, will enjoy a close look at the powerful “Sacmi system” at the service of the beverage industry, covering every aspect of production from raw materials to the final bottle.
The spotlight will be on the extensive range of labelling machines produced by Sacmi Verona, which, together with Sacmi Packaging, Sacmi Imola and Sacmi Filling, forms the backbone of the Group’s Beverage Division: a division that stands out for its cutting-edge technological solutions whatever the labelling method - cold, laser sealing or shrink sleeve. Pride of place, of course, will go to the OPERA RFST series labelling machines, based on the ROLL FED technology that allows the application of the heat-shrink label directly from the film roll and avails itself of the advantages of laser sealing.
Yet Sacmi will also be presenting itself at Dubai as a “sole provider” to the drinks industry, as a matter of fact since 2009 it has committed itself to providing customers with complete turnkey plants to ensure the bottler’s every need is met in full. This has, for example, been achieved by being the first to develop PAM (pre-form advanced moulding) technology, the foundation for a new generation of blow moulders that combine excellent output quality with outstanding energy performance.
Numerous innovations have also been developed on the filling front, especially as regards hot filling solutions; this is largely thanks to the CCM series, which currently offers the most competitive single-piece integrated-seal production technology in the world, capable of combining total product integrity with extremely short cycle times. And, once again, significant energy savings are to be had thanks to compression technology, which allows the extrusion process to be completed at temperatures much lower than those applied in traditional injection technology. This gives the triple advantages of lower on-material stress, energy savings and minimised cycle times, with parallel increases in machine output performance.
