Sacmi presents new technological developments for the CCM that deliver even greater energy savings and more advanced controls. Alongside them, an inspection revolution with dedicated systems that Sacmi, as of now, also produces directly in China. And from Sacmi Laboratory, a ready-to-market solution for a streamlined, profitable transition to new lightweight neck standards
With more than 680 CCM presses installed, Sacmi leads the way on China’s capping line market. Now, in the run-up to the 35th edition of Chinaplas, a key event that draws visitors from every corner of the globe, Sacmi is getting ready to showcase multiple innovations on the latest-generation CCM presses.
The press range now benefits from an integrated range of ‘smart vision’ inspection systems, from the CHS (for caps), produced directly in China as of this year, to the PVS (for preforms), which can be incorporated on the next-gen IPS 300 and IPS 400.
It’s not just technology that’s on show. Visitors to the Sacmi stand (n. 10H41) can also see several Laboratory-made products, such as market-ready neck+cap and tethered-friendly solutions designed to aid the lightweighting transition: solutions already adopted by some of the industry’s major players.
Sacmi CCM, clever insideMore stylish outside, more digital and technological inside than ever: at Chinaplas 2023 Sacmi will be showcasing the latest CCM machines, equipped with the brand new CM-Flow extruder.
- Energy savings of up to 9%
- Up to 50% fewer black specks compared to the same resin processed with traditional extruders.
- CMFlow produces caps that have the same resistance to stress cracking as those produced with traditional extrusion technology and operates at lower temperatures.
CMFlow isn’t just highly effective. It’s also simple and compact. This allow for quick and easy maintenance because, unlike a conventional extruder, the motor is coupled directly to the screw without any need for a gearmotor.
CMFlow is as-standard on the new Sacmi CCM48SD presses yet can also be implemented on the CCM24SF and CCM32MC versions.
Sacmi CCM, digital insideAll latest-generation CCMs – and existing versions such as the CCM24SF, CCM32MC, CCM48SD and CCM64MC – can be equipped with Sacmi Smart Pack. A digital control package that integrates advanced sensors and on-board controls, Smart Pack simplifies operation, increases machine availability and reduces the risk of errors or line stoppages.
How? Through, for example, an automatic system that verifies correct dose insertion and positioning. Through automatic (and predictive) hydraulic oil quality control. Through cutting-edge thermoregulation to prevent on-mold condensation, thus boosting system availability and extending machine and mold component lifespans while improving the quality of the molding process.
