Sacmi to show innovations in caps, preform manufacturing

K 2016 in Düsseldorf, 19 to 26 October

Advanced, flexible, practical digital decoration of caps by Sacmi are just a few of the technological innovations that will be displayed at K 2016 to be held from 19 to 26 October in Düsseldorf

Sacmi’s total quality control systems, automation and efficiency, will lead to the production of 1,000 caps a minute with just 24 cavities, in a cycle time of just 1.4 seconds with the lowest energy consumption in the sector. Advanced, flexible, practical digital decoration of caps by Sacmi are just a few of the technological innovations that will be on show at K 2016 (Hall 13 Stand 13A63), the triennial international plastic exhibition to be held from 19 to 26 October in Düsseldorf.

Caps and digital printing

Sacmi has, over the years, developed incremental innovations, some of which will be previewed at Düsseldorf. Cap digital printing solutions have now reached an even higher level of development and are already being explored by Sacmi. Some consider it to be the final frontier of digital decoration, unlimited color development, ultra-high definition and flexibility to ensure the right response whatever the customer’s production and promotional needs.

From cap to pack, Sacmi has harnessed all its compression technology expertise and know-how to design a completely new plastic container manufacturing platform and highly interesting applications in the pharmaceutical and dairy sectors which will be presented at the fair, thus mounting a competitive challenge to alternative technologies due to outstanding flexibility, productivity and energy saving.

Preforms and Inspection systems

Preforms and Inspection systems such as in the manufacture of PET preforms with injection technology is a sector where Sacmi has combined productivity and quality with solutions that ensure maximum compatibility with existing moulds, thus offering a competitive advantage in terms of flexibility. Complete, integrated solutions are designed to make use and maintenance easier. With one overriding goal – to give the manufacturer a competitive advantage in terms of efficiency Sacmi has developed and market-launched advanced vision and quality control systems capable of inspecting every part of the product, identifying any potential defects and eliminating any risk of line inefficiencies.

The advanced software that is shared by all Sacmi-designed vision systems, offer interoperability and user-friendliness for every stage of primary packaging production from bottle to closure to labelling. Visitors to K 2016 Europe’s main event for the industry can expect all this and more.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
