A webinar organized as a part of SACMI Virtual Interpack 2020 took customers-users from all over the world on a tour of the SACMI Tethered Cap Solutions that are claimed to be four years ahead of both the new EU standards and the market. According to the press release, on 16 June, over 600 users representing 227 firms from 22 countries all the globe attended the webinar “Tethered by SACMI.”
Founded in 1919, Italy based SACMI Imola (Società Anonima Cooperativa Meccanici Imola) is an international manufacturer of machines and complete plants for the ceramic tile, beverage, packaging, quality control process, chocolate processing machines and plastics industries. Sacmi has branches in Iowa, US, Russia, Indonesia, Singapore, Germany, India, Portugal, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Iran, and Egypt.
New integrated system for tethered caps
With this new integrated system for tethered caps (that is caps that remain attached to the bottle after opening) SACMI claims to anticipate the new regulatory framework, and the market, by four years.
The advantage of the SACMI line lies in a range of flexible solutions that integrate a new-concept cap feeder with the scoring machine and the cap or anti-tamper band inspection system.
High attendance at the webinar reflected huge interest by a market that is gearing up for 2024 when tethered caps are set to become the new industry standard with the coming into force of the EU Directive.
The webinar format also gave participants a chance to ask questions in real-time. During the meeting, SACMI received over 100 requests for further information. The event also generated considerable interest in the new PFMC (the downstream inspection system, equipped with the CVS cut unit, which checks for proper anti-tamper band performance).
According to the press release, the entire SACMI closures, containers and PET sales team is busy organizing one-to-one conference calls with all the users who registered on the platform and requested in-depth info on specific aspects.
This initiative sees SACMI strengthen its technological leadership on the closures market. That leadership is said to be crucial over the coming months in allowing the company to intercept and support its customers’ investment decisions, in every corner of the globe.
