Productive, because it reduces the time and cost of equipping production lines – when switching between containers for various product types, minimal modification of lines is required for either preforms or closures (the latter produced with SACMI’s compression process, which already offers reduced tooling times and high production speed). The solution is easy because it produces easy-to-open bottles. The guaranteed positive LB angle – the leak angle is greater than the bridge-break angle, a feature not available on the market with current closure solutions – gives the perception of a closure that is easy to open.
And reliable, because the special tamper-evidence system provides an immediate breakage of the security strip, rendering the bottle secure with no risk of blow-off.
‘Technical collaboration between two companies that have always made technology a key competitive element was bound to produce great results. ‘What we have achieved, however, has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations and we believe it’s the best way to differentiate our companies from the pack and to help us strive for excellence in a marketplace as competitive and complex as that of plastic bottles,’ comments a spokesman for Sacmi and Sipa.
