Newsletter N°3/2008 - Interpack 2008

The imminent international event "Interpack 2008" will be the occasion for SMI to exhibit a series of important innovations, concerning end-of-line packaging machines and rotary stretch-blow molders for PET/PP bottles.

Rotary stretch-blow molders of the SR series - Cost-effective, high performances

By launching the new generation of SR stretch-blow molders, SMI introduces a series of technical innovations on the market, which increase the machines output by 20% as compared to the previous models.

The considerable improvement of the performances is made possible thanks to the new preforms heating module (oven), which will be exhibited at Interpack for the first time in the world, featuring the preforms mandrels pitch reduced size to 40mm, in order to increase the outputs, without increasing the energy consumption.

The preforms heating times have improved considerably, whereas the operating costs are among the lowest on the market, in order to ensure a quick return of the invested capital.

The 8-cavity model (SR8), which will be exhibited at Interpack, also features a new electrical panel, totally integrated in the heating module, with a consequent reduction of the machine overall dimensions.

The eco-compatible technology of the SMI new stretch-blow molders fully meets the need to reduce the energy consumption and to respect the environment.

Shrink-wrappers of the SK Series - Innovative packaging

The innovations introduced by SMI in the end-of-line packaging machines aim at satisfying the market requests, as far as the distribution of the packaged products is concerned and from a promotional point of view, with an eye-catching packaging.

The shrink-wrapper SK 600/T features the new optional device "TS" in order to stack the packs. Thanks to this device, plastic, metal or glass containers packaged in cardboard trays or pad can be stacked on two or more layers, before being shrink-wrapped. Then the packs can be directly conveyed to the palletizer and be distributed on the market in safe conditions, thanks to a packaging which protects the containers integrity and the product quality.

The versatility of the SK 600/T, as of all SMI packaging machines, offers a wide range of marketing solutions, in order to follow the most innovative market trends; for instance, the consumer can choose among several types of pack collations, from the family-size packages to the single products.

The staff at our stand D12/D06 - Hall 14 will be pleased to give you further information about the exhibited machines and about the whole production range of the SMI Group.
