One company – many solutions
At this year’s trade show, Sidel will highlight its market-tailored innovations, designed to increase reliability, flexibility, performance and agility in the production process. Chief among these future-proof solutions are:
- The Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis™, an integrated blow-fill-seal-filler solution with dry preform sterilisation. It ensures an aseptic production that is flexible, cost-effective and safe. Sidel was the first company to receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for this patented solution. Because the dry preform sterilisation technology does not require any water and uses only minimal amounts of chemicals in the production process, the Aseptic Combi Predis has – since its launch – globally contributed to save 7 billion litres of water and 57,000 tons of PET, while producing 46 billion bottles. The solution sits among the many innovations across the line and beyond that champions Sidel’s commitment to help producers reduce their environmental footprint, another big company highlight at the show.
- The EvoFILL Can, which offers a high degree of flexibility and improved hygienic conditions for the filling of top quality, aluminium cans. Having undergone a complete redesign, the new solution is able to manage a wider range of cans, filling various temperatures and beverage types, thus bringing great filling performance to high quality beverages, like low-carbonated drinks or flash pasteurised beer.
- The brand-new EvoFILL Glass filler, Sidel’s response to the need to adapt to rapidly changing markets and trends in premium beverages. Engineered according to top hygienic standards with the new “no base” design, the drive system with servomotors, and – especially – its external beverage tank and integrated small product chamber, EvoFILL Glass delivers excellent drinks and unlimited flexibility.
Moreover, visitors will have a first-hand experience of CoboAccess™_Pal, a compact and robust industrial palletising solution based on collaborative robotics, which will be displayed as live and running equipment at Sidel’s booth. It has been designed to complement low-speed lines and contribute to line efficiency, reliability and – especially – increased welfare for operators. The show will provide also a unique opportunity to promote the recent addition to Sidel’s portfolio of cobotic palletising solutions, CoboAccess_Pal M.
Simone Mondini, Vice President Equipment Sales Food, Home & Personal Care Africa, Oceania and Asia, Sidel, adds, “Featuring a Fanuc CR-15iA robotic arm, CoboAccess_Pal M allows a higher payload while running at six cycles per minute. Equipped with DCS software and the safe contact stop technology, the new cell becomes even more industrial and therefore better suited for a wider scope of applications and market categories.”
