AT THE 3rd Food Beverage Equipment and Engineer Summit in Shanghai, Sacmi took home the Food Beverage Engineer Annual Innovation Production Award for its CBF technology. The prize identifies the best technology in the blow-moulding market.
CBF merges the characteristics of alternative container-making technologies (e.g. EBM, IBM, ISBM). It has the following advantages: thermodynamic stability; high productivity and precision-moulded necks, and it has no gate at the bottom of the container. When combined with the flexibility that stems from being able to use different resins, these factors make CBF ideal for the dairy sector where weight reduction and process versatility are in great demand.
A leading local dairy producer has purchased the Sacmi solution to produce 200 ml HDPE containers. Ultra-fast cycle times (just 7 seconds for this specific application) and weights no greater than 15.5-19 grams have been combined with high quality, process repeatability and a weight reduction of some 20%, ensuring savings in terms of both energy and raw materials. Long-lasting reliability – which stems from lower temperatures that prevent stress on vital machine parts – completes the picture.
The Sacmi has local branches worldwide and provides quick-response consultancy and after-sales assistance service. The Sacmi Shanghai branch has highly qualified technicians that provide close customer support right from the design stage and help implement innovative solutions that meet Industry 4.0 requisites.
