From a leader in metal closures, Sacmi Imola has strived on to become an all-round machinery supplier for plastic packaging in beverage industry.

"Apart from the machine we displayed here, Sacmi produces the whole range of machinery needed for packaging, filling and labeling of bottles for the beverage industry," said Giuseppe Lesce, Closure & Containers General Manager, Sacmi.

Fastest compression machine for caps

The company is well-known particularly in China for plastic caps, which has sold more than 500 compression machines here, according to him.

A CCM24CS compression press was presented for the first time in China. It offers unparalleled performance: an industry record 1.44s cycle time at best with improved cap quality, while energy consumption has been reduced further.

During CHINAPLAS 2017, single-piece 30mm high density polyethylene (HDPE) water bottle caps weighing 85g each were produced in a rate of 800 caps/min with just 24 heads, which is equivalent to a cycle time of 1.8s.

"It is one of the smallest compression machines in terms of cavity yet it is a very quick one," Lesce emphasized.

For plastic caps & closures, he said a compression process holds an edge over injection molding in terms of product quality, cycle times, energy consumption, etc.

Services key to future success

As the most important market for Sacmi, Lesce said the Chinese customers are increasingly looking for complete solutions. "Usually the customer comes to us with a problem, it means they need a solution for a certain bottle and a certain beverage."

In addition, he feels the Chinese market values services as much as new technology. "For the future, we have to approach the market with a wider package of services. The customers, in my opinion, are looking for more services such as technical support and training."

"It is not so easy because of various reasons. But we intend to grow locally. We already have a technical structure with Chinese service engineers and spare parts. In the future, these supports must be improved."

Smart technology takes center stage

Like so many other countries in the world, labor cost soars every year in China. Automated, smart machine will become prominent.

"Industry 4.0 will enter every market. Several years ago, an important customer in China told me they would like to consider automated machines that require less manpower, that can be controlled remotely or that can alert you what is going wrong. The concept is perfect, but the reality is not yet there," Lesce recalled.

"Now our technical center in Italy is responsible for monitoring some of the machines in other countries. We try to anticipate the potential problem of the machine by analyzing their behavior. Through preventive maintenance – changing the parts before they break – downtime can be reduced."
