Improve flexibility and minimise downtime

Maximum uptime with an innovative labelling solution

High-output beverage production at high and very-high speed benefits from continuous uptime, and the best way to ensure this is with a labeller that safeguards line productivity against stoppages.

 

Sidel Super Combi’s labelling equipment is the result of extensive improvements to existing Sidel labelling technology – an innovative solution available in multiple configurations with up to three labelling stations, all of which prioritise maximum uptime.

 

Benefits

  • Accessible and ergonomic with radial footprint
  • Accommodates both roll-fed and pressure-sensitive labels (PSL)
  • High-efficiency labelling process
  • Fast, easy and reliable label-reel auto-splicing

Unmatched process flexibility

By implementing a machine configuration that matches your output and flexibility requirements, the labelling process can be optimised.

  • Single Aggregate – one station at high speed
  • Double Aggregate – two stations working simultaneously
  • Double Aggregate – two stations in master/slave setup (one working, one on standby)
  • Triple Aggregate – three stations working simultaneously; or two working, one on standby

Innovative master/slave configuration for zero downtime

The Sidel Super Combi’s labeller offers the option to organise multiple labelling stations into master/slave configurations, thereby maximising production uptime.

  • Top performance for high-output production
  • No stoppage-related downtime
  • Maximum output at 55,000 bph
  • Drum-cleaning performed during active production

Improve filling precision and hygiene with the Super Combi’s Sidel Matrix filler.

The Super Combi’s integrated Sidel Matrix SF100 FM utilises flow-meter technology and configurable controls, allowing it to fill any still beverage type with or without conductivity, and delivering high filling precision and maximum hygienic compliance for optimal product and production safety.

 

Benefits

  • Filling valve with vortex flow-meter control
  • Double filling speed available for higher filling level
  • Safe, easy automatic cleaning
  • Maximum hygiene with reduced filler enclosure
    • Filling area reduced to space around valve
    • Volume reduced by up to 80% compared to traditional solutions

Energy efficiency with unmatched ergonomics

Maximise effectiveness with waterfall technology

The Sidel Super Combi’s integrated Gebo Cermex Optifeed® comprises four key modules – hopper, guiding system, distribution and elevating system – and delivers top-quality caps in a smaller, more efficient and hygienic setup.

 

The machine’s waterfall technology, modular platform and kinematic set-up allow for careful handling of each cap. Kinematics separate the orientation and elevating functions, reducing the total height of the “waterfall” cap-orientation system and allowing for improved ground-level operator access.

 

Benefits

  • Requires no compressed air or electronic fan systems during cap-extraction, optimising delivery, sustainability and TCO
  • Ground-level access to motorised elements, sensitive zones and cap-quality control
  • Blockages prevented at top of cap-feeder
  • Easy to transport; delivery times reduced by up to 30% with modular design
  • Suitable for high-speed operations
  • Less floor space required, and easier maintenance
  • Superior reliability thanks to integrated vision control
  • Integrated, precise quality-control makes feeder suitable for fragile or thin wall closures
