Further innovation for the beverage market has now come from Sacmi in the form of complete plants for the production and filling of PET beer bottles for the Russian market. Thanks to a unique set of skills built up by the various Sacmi Beverage companies over the years, we’ve developed and perfected a turnkey system able to cover every single stage of production of a product that had never – until now – been offered with this type of packaging.
What had, until now, prevented this evolution was the fact that beer stored in PET bottles risked, where not consumed quickly, deterioration. However, the situation on the Russian market, characterised by faster logistical dynamics and distribution, does not expose this alcoholic beverage to this type of risk.
This ascertainment led to the idea of developing a plant specially for this very product type. The solution provided covers the entire production process, from the PET preform injection systems – able to make standard 1.5-litre bottles – to manufacture of the one-piece plastic imitation crown caps and on to the filling process (developed by Sacmi Filling) and final labelling.
Further proof, then, of Sacmi’s commitment to providing “turnkey” solutions at the service of the beverage sector, starting from the specific requirements of the customer and, as is the case here, the specific characteristics of the target market. A clear demonstration, then, of Sacmi’s ability to develop technological innovation that can revolutionise the way entire industries produce and/or how entire products are made, a revolution that began at Sacmi with the development of the compression technology that has, in plastic cap production, superseded the injection technology that uses traditional plaster casts.
