Leading the transition to new standards in Africa with profitable and certified solutions, SACMI is smoothing its customers’ path toward a greener future. Projects increasingly feature the CCM+IPS combo with embedded or stand-alone vision systems for every stage of the process
From 12th to 14th March 2024, SACMI will be a major exhibitor at the three-day ProPak East Africa fair in Nairobi (Kenya), an event expected to draw 6,000 visitors from all over the continent.
Africa’s leading partner supplier of cap and preform machines (on their own or integrated into SACMI Beverage’s complete bottling systems), the Group is leading the continent’s transition towards new neck-cap standards such as the 26/22 mm.
SACMI has a solid, far-reaching presence in Africa for four good reasons:
26/22 mm neck-cap transition
In the 26/22 mm family, SACMI provides the widest range on the market. Water, CSD, hot-fill, with both tethered and traditional tamper bands: our solutions meet every possible production requirement and are certified by leading international brand owners.
The SACMI Rigid Packaging Lab’s unrivalled expertise provides customers with close support, helping them identify the solution that best matches their production requirements and their new product design/development needs.
Simple, versatile, future-proof
SACMI smooths the path towards green packaging simply and profitably. How? For example, by pairing the development of the tethered standard with band slitting in post processing, thus giving producers who work with international brands the utmost versatility, even where the tethered standard is not yet mandatory.
CCM+IPS: a winning combination
From the idea for the product… to all the technology needed to make it. More and more customers in the African market are choosing to make a parallel investment in the CCM compression press for caps and the IPS injection press for preforms so they can reap the rewards of working with a reliable sole partner like SACMI. CCM+IPS offers a winning combination, especially in light of SACMI’s recent decision to extend compatibility with third-party molds to the entire IPS range.
Dedicated quality control
SACMI develops vision systems – both embedded in the machines and stand-alone – for every stage of the process. The IPS preform press with an embedded PVS156 inspection system is in a class of its own; more generally, using specific systems for each stage of production shifts quality control from the product to the process. What’s more, these systems can be installed on existing plants.
Alongside product and process expertise, SACMI also invests steadily in improvements to customer service. Through offices and branches across the continent – and in liaison with the parent company in Italy – SACMI provides close customer support from the earliest stages of the order and throughout the lifespan of the machines and plants.
