SACMI organizes a webinar on 16 June to showcase its thethered cap solutions.

A webinar organized as a part of SACMI Virtual Interpack 2020 took customers-users from all over the world on a tour of the SACMI Tethered Cap Solutions that are claimed to be four years ahead of both the new EU standards and the market. According to the press release, on 16 June, over 600 users representing 227 firms from 22 countries all the globe attended the webinar “Tethered by SACMI.”

Founded in 1919, Italy based SACMI Imola (Società Anonima Cooperativa Meccanici Imola) is an international manufacturer of machines and complete plants for the ceramic tile, beverage, packaging, quality control process, chocolate processing machines and plastics industries. Sacmi has branches in Iowa, US, Russia, Indonesia, Singapore, Germany, India, Portugal, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Iran, and Egypt.

New integrated system for tethered caps

With this new integrated system for tethered caps (that is caps that remain attached to the bottle after opening) SACMI claims to anticipate the new regulatory framework, and the market, by four years.

The advantage of the SACMI line lies in a range of flexible solutions that integrate a new-concept cap feeder with the scoring machine and the cap or anti-tamper band inspection system.

High attendance at the webinar reflected huge interest by a market that is gearing up for 2024 when tethered caps are set to become the new industry standard with the coming into force of the EU Directive.

The webinar format also gave participants a chance to ask questions in real-time. During the meeting, SACMI received over 100 requests for further information. The event also generated considerable interest in the new PFMC (the downstream inspection system, equipped with the CVS cut unit, which checks for proper anti-tamper band performance).

According to the press release, the entire SACMI closures, containers and PET sales team is busy organizing one-to-one conference calls with all the users who registered on the platform and requested in-depth info on specific aspects.

This initiative sees SACMI strengthen its technological leadership on the closures market. That leadership is said to be crucial over the coming months in allowing the company to intercept and support its customers’ investment decisions, in every corner of the globe.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
