SIPA (Zoppas Industries Group) and Sacmi, two companies operating in the Italian packaging sector, have combined their skills in the search for a new solution in the combination of PET preforms and closures that provides advantages for processors and end-users alike.
According to Sacmi, the collaboration, which they say has been given strong backing from the two companies’ managements, headed by Enrico Gribaudo (SIPA) and Giuseppe Lesce (Sacmi) respectively, combines SIPA’s experience in the development of preforms, with that of Sacmi in caps and closures. A combined development team incorporates a level of technical competence considered unrivalled anywhere in the world.
Sacmi explains the fruit of this collaboration is a new solution – with the acronym S.U.P.E.R. – featuring a special combination of preform neck finish and lightweighted caps that solves several key problems associated with the operation of a cap on the neck of a PET bottle, with results previously not thought possible.
S.U.P.E.R. stands for Sustainable, Unique, Productive, Easy, and Reliable – which Sacmi says are the five key benefits of this innovative solution:
“Technical collaboration between two companies that have always made technology a key element in their competitivity was bound to produce great results,” say companies’ spokesmen. “But what we have achieved has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations. We think it is the best way to differentiate our two companies from the pack, and to help us strive for excellence in a marketplace as competitive and complex as that of plastic bottles.”
