- 48-cavity CCM machine with reduced energy consumption
- 1,300 CSD caps per minute
- Modified liquid coolant circuit inside the mould for shorter cycles times
- Sacmi at #NPE2015
At the NPE2015 plastics show, Italian company Sacmi will showcase an optimised version of the CCM 48 with the Cool+ mould for the manufacture of one-piece CSD (carbonated soft drinks) caps, a system that features the advantages of compression technology, from ultra-low cycle times to optimum cap size and weight.
48-cavity CCM machine with reduced energy consumption
The company will be presenting one of the most competitive systems in the market for the production of CSD caps. The machine will be the optimised version of the 48-cavity CCM (continuous compression moulding), which ensures electricity consumption that is even lower than on previous versions.
1,300 CSD caps per minute with neckfinish 1881
Able to achieve output rates of up to 1,300 CSD caps per minute and a cycle time of 2.3 sec., the machine is equipped with the new Cool+ mould for improved cooling. A modified liquid coolant circuit inside the mould allows the cooling times to be reduced significantly. At the fair the company will be presenting a CSD cap, the neckfinish 1881 (weight 2.35 g), the standard one used by all major carbonated drink producers. With this one-piece high-performance HDPE cap, Sacmi aims to take on the challenge posed by the US market, where the CSD segment accounts for not less than 45% of all soft drinks (water included).
