Designed to operate in line with the press, the PMC 600 lining machine has been configured by Sacmi to keep pace with the higher productivity of the PTC, with unmatched reliability stemming from the innovative in-machine cap handling system. The CCD, instead, is a cap embossing solution designed by SACMI for use with both decorated and plain caps.

Hence SACMI's product line for the application of PVC-free liners directly from pellet, with specific technologies for twist-off caps (PMA) and the long aluminium caps (PMH) used in the wine sector.

Alongside such solutions - which the dual advantages of product healthiness and energy saving - SACMI provides a comprehensive solution for handling the modern standard Pull Ring cap that integrates the PMV lining machine with the RCM machine that moulds and applies the plastic ring with the tab directly on the shell.
