Sidel’s focus on solutions for beverages

Offering flexibility with quick changeovers

Sidel machines offer flexibility, quick and automatic changeovers with fast module replacement and upgrades

Sidel, the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging, is highlighting the importance of complete line solutions in delivering optimum performance for beverage producers, along with the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). “As a result of the ever-changing market, beverage producers are generally now taking a more holistic approach to the installation of new bottling lines,” explains Clive Smith, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Sidel

By partnering with Sidel from the start and collaborating at every step of the installation, beverage producers can boost speed and hygiene with Sidel water lines, ensure flexibility and quick changeovers with Sidel carbonated soft drinks lines and increase their packaging freedom with Sidel hot fill lines. With the company’s aseptic wet lines, producers can improve bottle light weighting at the same time as reducing the consumption of resources. With its dry, low-speed aseptic lines, they can reduce their footprint and ensure a faster ramp-up and, with the high-speed version of the same line, can maximize productivity and flexibility.

Working with Sidel, beverage producers gain access to a thorough understanding of the entire supply chain, from current market trends and changing consumer tastes to the challenges of beverage distribution and local regulations all around the world. Sidel’s dedicated in-house packaging laboratories and technical know-how can help industrialize a bottle that is lightweight, flexible and durable.

The liquid package interaction analysis determines the most suitable packaging for the customer. This includes analyzing the bottle neck and cap where significant performance improvements, as well as cost savings, can be realized through factors such as light weighting and the tightness of the cap. Sidel’s virtual bottle modelling and finite element analysis can assess its stability, rigidity and quality. Full feasibility performance tests can then validate its strength and ensure it performs in the real world.

Equipment for optimized uptime

Sidel can help any producer choose the right equipment for the specific needs of any beverage. Every step of the way, Sidel’s knowledge of all the processes involved in the PET bottling process, from blowing through to palletizing, and its reliable and high-quality, modular equipment, ensure that lines can be flexibly adapted to get the most out of the producer’s investment. Sidel machines offer flexibility, quick and automatic changeovers with fast module replacement and upgrades. Along with long-term and reliable uptime and short cleaning times, this helps producers achieve optimum productivity.

Sidel machinery is also designed to maximize sustainability by reducing overall running costs and use of resources. While ensuring high bottle quality, Sidel blowers save both air and energy. Fillers avoid spillage and waste, carry out automatic bottle/beverage changeovers and minimize the use of electricity and cleaning agents. Sidel labellers cut the amount of energy and materials consumed and the time needed for maintenance. Packers save on energy and materials – and automatically carry out the changeover of both material and pack configuration. Sidel palletizers make transportation more effective, and production more efficient.

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.
