Sacmi will display its latest bottling innovations

Sacmi Filling, instead, will be exhibiting the VOLO-MAS, a machine for filling PET bottles with still or sparkling products. Featuring electronic volumetric technology, the VOLO-MAS ensures output rates of up to 30,000 pieces per hour (with 1.5-litre bottles). With stainless steel base and self-draining structure in folded/welded metalwork (with drainage channelling), the VOLO-MAS filler also has an automatic sanitising system that can operate at very high temperatures, thus reducing wash times.

Sacmi Labelling will, instead, be presenting the new Opera 400 Modul 22T at Interpack; this modular rotary labeller has four labelling stations with various application technologies: the pressure-sensitive HS04 station, the roll-fed station, the cold-melt station and the hot melt pre-cut station. Providing outstanding labelling flexibility, the Opera 400 Modul 22T also boasts an output rate of 30,000 bottles an hour.

It goes without saying that the Düsseldorf event will also be attended by Sacmi Pakim, there to present MONOBIB, the integrated compact filling-packaging machine that incorporates all the functions needed to create "Bag in Box" packages. Consisting of a cardboard box forming machine with hot-melt closure, MONOBIB can produce bag formats as large as 20 litres and features numerous devices such as an end-of-filling nitrogen injection system.

Last but not least, Sacmi Packaging will exhibit a high-speed cosmetic bottle packaging line - 3300 bottles per minute - that uses an innovative tracking-type product pick-up system. The line consists of an EC40 cardboard box former, a robotised CR 25 pick & place boxing unit and a KR180 robot palletizer equipped with an all-new grab designed by Sacmi Packaging. Simulation will show how the pallets are stocked by the SIMA LGV handling system: special hardware and software devices render these operations extremely reliable and also allow full traceability of each handling stage.
