Sacmi Packaging has launched flex packs as the demand for such packs is growing at a rate of nearly 10% a year.
Capable of compatibility with a broad range of technologies - vacuum, gripper, side load, etc. - to ensure optimal handling of such packs, Sacmi's plant engineering solutions range from filling to case packing, from palletizing to end-of-line solutions.
The advantages of the Sacmi solution include advanced technical equipment on the plant such as cooling tunnels , towers and drying systems that allow proper pack management (packs exit the machine at temperatures as high as 85° and need cooling and, therefore, drying on account of the high degree of surface moisture) and heightened line efficiency.
Already a supplier to major world players who have chosen to focus on the flexibility and versatility of these packs, Sacmi is able to act as provider to a wide range of customers making products that range from tomato packs to ready-to-drink doypack products such as fruit juices and sports drinks.
The high degree of process automation allows efficient control with Pick&Place robots and effective pack handling, not to mention high output rates.
Lastly, water and wine. The latter industry is witnessing ever-wider employment of such packs in both central and northern Europe (France leads the way) on the main international platforms for the packaging and sale of wine products.
As part of a comprehensive and complete range that spans from automatic Linear fillers to the MONOBIB filling Monoblock for Bag In Box and Pouches , the range of additional options is an extensive one.
Another source of added value to the customer is the Sacmi Group's decision to operate via a global sales and after-sales network that is as close to key markets as possible, accompanying the customer step by step right from the design phase and throughout the entire working life of the machine and the plant.
