CUTTING-EDGE SERVICE

Sacmi provides customers with close support to supply complete lines.

Sacmi, leader in the plastic caps and closures industry, has extended its technological range to the single-serve production sector, offering its skills for the development of new-generation solutions and tools that allow high productivity, energy savings and outstanding final product quality. Sacmi is capable of providing individual capsule-making machines or creating a complete system that - thanks to close collaboration between Sacmi, key partners and subsidiaries - produces the capsule, fills it, packages it and places the packs in boxes ready to be palletized.

COMPRESSION ADVANTAGES:

  • Shorter cycle time and therefore higher productivity
  • Less energy consumption
  • Easily maintained molds
  • Quick colour changeover process
  • Less waste = lower costs
  • No injection point on the finished product
  • Different types of resins can be processed and even combined
  • Independent molds

The Sacmi R&D facility: a key partner for all-round support

The Sacmi Research Facility provides customers with skills and service: from the initial capsule concept to simulation, analysis, prototyping and the finished product. Sacmi offers the possibility to prototype each product that can be manufactured by the machines in its range. Pilot tooling on several single head machines and 3D printing are just two of the ways of testing the characteristics of the products in advance. Pilot molds can be manufactured in just a few weeks at our facilities.
