At CHINAPLAS 2018, Sacmi showcased its state-of-the-art cap manufacturing and quality control technologies at the over 300sqm display area. A full range of Sacmi products was alsodisplayed with the successful compression press range as one of the highlights. 

“In the last few years, we put a lot of efforts on the Industry 4.0 to improve the performance of our machinery, arranging and organizing all the data that is possible to store on the machinery. Sousers can have all information to reduce the total cost of their ownership,said Raffaella Ghetti, Closures, Containers, and Pet Div. Closures Business Director at SACMI.

Through the range of CCM (Continuous Compression Moulding) compression presses, Sacmi offered one of the lowest cycle times in the industry, achieving productivity as high as 2,000 caps per minute with just 48 moulds.
Offering intrinsic advantages in terms of productivity, energy savings and reliability, compression technology operates at lower temperatures, thus reducing on-material stress and extending the working life of both machine and plant, according to SACMI

 “Beverage is our most important market. But now we are also offering inanother different market the coffee capsule market. It is a market in our scenario and it is growing in Europe and North America,said Raffaella Ghetti.

She believes that the single dose solution will become something common everywhere. The coffee capsule is not only for coffee, it can be for milk, tea or any kind of solution. It is also for changing the habit.

In the western culture, it is pleasant to reduce the consumption of sugar. “People start to drink more water, and the water with some aromatic product. The single dose can be used in this type of situation,”continued Raffaella Ghetti. 

The Continuous hydraulic compression press, which is used for producing caps, can also be available for the production of plastic capsules. The production process occurs by extruding a mix of materials, cutting the extruded material into single pellets, inserting them in the cavity and, lastly, forming the capsule according to a specifically defined profile.

 “What is more challenge about coffee capsule is the multi-layer product. The material can be PP, ABS or EVOH, even bio-based compounder in the future,explained Raffaella Ghetti .
