15/06/2017 – News / Sidel / Drinktec / Packaging / Germany
Pioneering packaging machine manufacturer Sidel will be introducing numerous breakthrough packaging solutions at Drinktec 2017 – the world’s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry, taking place in Munich from 11-15 September – to help producers meet the challenges of ever-changing demands in beverage markets.
“Beverage producers, brand owners and co-packers need to stay competitive in an evolving and demanding market, with easy-to-use, smart, flexible and customised solutions,“ commented Frédéric Sailly, Executive VP for Product Management and Development at Sidel. “At Drinktec 2017 we are looking forward to showing how this understanding of our customers’ needs and the trends in the liquid packaging industry enables us to deliver greater performance for bottling lines. The future-proof technologies and market-tailored innovations on display on our stand are designed to achieve these goals while optimising total costs of ownership (TCO) and ensuring high product quality and enhanced versatility.”
Among the global launches taking place at Sidel’s Drinktec stand (A6.330) will be the Sidel Super Combi – an all-in-one system for water and carbonated soft drinks (CSD) production that delivers ready-to-sell products at very high speed, with maximum uptime and ease of operation.
Another launch will be the new modular labeller, which has the flexibility to accommodate different labelling technologies applicable to both glass and PET containers, for easy and quick format changeovers and increased productivity.
Elsewhere, the new Sidel can and glass fillers, based on the proven Sidel Matrix™ platform, will be launched at the upcoming event. Such solutions offer producers of beer and CSD improved hygienic conditions, maximised efficiency and high flexibility.
Another highlight at Drinktec 2017 will be the Sidel Group Agility 4.0™ framework. This offers customers digitally-aided understanding, enhanced performance and packaging mass customisation opportunities.
Additionally, solutions to handle aseptic and hot fill production in PET will be a particular focus on the stand, with experts available to discuss such technologies. Recently, Sidel received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Aseptic Combi Predis™ FMa blow fill seal filler. This solution is the world’s first aseptic PET filling equipment with dry preform sterilisation validated for low acid manufacturing and commercial distribution in the United States and other FDA markets. Sidel will also be highlighting its Sidel Services™ portfolio which helps customers to build, maintain and improve the performance of bottling lines throughout the production lifecycle.
