SACMI confirms its attendance at the 2019 edition of Gulfood Manufacturing, a major Gulf region fair showcasing packaging, beverage and food processing technology. Soon to be held in Dubai, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (29 - -31 October), the fair is set to host at least 1,600 exhibitors from 60 countries displaying industry-specific, state-of-the-art technology and plant engineering.
Now extended to ensure sustainability while boosting performance and personalisation, the SACMI range includes proprietary technology that spans from raw materials to shop shelves and offers high-added-value services that provide valuable customer support before, during and after the sale.
Taking centre-stage on the SACMI stand (hall 5 #C5-28) will be the latest developments in CCM technology, the capsule manufacturing compression platform now improved with the new multilayer solution. By ensuring manufacturers can produce single serve capsules that are exceptionally strong, have an excellent seal and reduce energy and raw material requirements, SACMI has provided a sound response to the most recent market challenges: indeed, the ability to manage - with outstanding flexibility - a large number of layers while minimising waste and optimising the process is what SACMI multilayer compression is all about.
In addition to the intrinsic advantages of CCM – user-friendliness, process consistency, shorter cycle times compared to rival technologies - SACMI has now added complete plant engineering solutions upstream from the bottling line, such as the IPS PET preform manufacturing platform. Thanks to the speed with which size changeovers can be made and compatibility with most commercially available moulds, the solution is characterised by versatility and optimised running costs. More specifically, SACMI IPS allows for the manufacture of preforms consisting of up to 100% recycled PET and permits the use of raw materials in recycled flake form in quantities of up to 50%, all with standard machines and the reliability that stems from tried and trusted technology.
Downstream from the system, the range is completed by advanced SACMI Verona labellers featuring computer vision solutions that perform high speed on-line quality control to ensure correct label application (LVS).
As broad as it is diversified, the SACMI labeller range includes modular, versatile medium speed solutions (such as the renowned KUBE) and machines designed to run at ultra-high speeds (SACMI OPERA RF). This ambitious response to every possible manufacturing need recently saw the addition of the new SACMI ERF labeller, which revolutionises the approach to labelling by applying the label on the already-full and capped container, ensuring maximum adherence.
Moving on from Beverage to Food, SACMI will be taking advantage of Gulfood Manufacturing to present the complete SACMI Packaging&Chocolate Division range. A global leader in the chocolate processing, packaging and wrapping industry, the Division has developed a comprehensive range that draws on experience and know-how gained during 112 years of service to the Italian chocolate industry, a range now supplied via the Carle&Montanari, OPM and FIMA brands.
And that's not all: SACMI has also developed its Packaging&Chocolate range to include ‘from oven to case’ solutions for the bakery, biscuit and wafer sectors; these have design specifications that allow the packaging and handling of foods that are highly delicate and/or of irregular shape or surface because of the leavening processes they undergo. Particularly noteworthy, then, are the oven products 'gently handling' solutions with 'smart pick' for efficient control of single-item and grouped-item packaging. SACMI Packaging&Chocolate also supplies advanced flowpack solutions for the wafer sector. These integrate primary and secondary packaging to give fully automated process control as per new Industry 4.0 standards.
Providing excellent technology and service, SACMI is a solid presence in the Middle East through Sacmi Middle East, a vital assistance and after-sales hub. All new SACMI solutions are developed in close collaboration with the Group's R&D facilities, which provide advanced consulting services right from the design stage. Moreover, thanks to the new SACMI Customer Care Division, close support is provided throughout the working life of both machine and plant, also from a maintenance engineering standpoint.
