The future ecosystem well-being depends on today’s choices!
Environmental sustainability plays a key role in the investment choices of those who choose plants and machines for large-scale production in compliance with the standards for the territory safeguard and energy saving.
Thanks to continuous investments in research and development of new technologies, SMI has recently launched on the market a new stretch film packer, called SFP 30 ERGON, that perfectly combines the need to reduce the use of plastics and energy consumption in the packaging plants for the food & beverage industry.
SFP 30 ERGON packer meets the needs of flexibility, versatility and environmental sustainability for the packaging of packs in film only in several configurations 2 x n, by using the cold stretch film.
ADVANTAGES OF THE SFP SERIES
less packaging material used (-30/40 % vs. traditional shrink wrappers): 10 micron thick stretch film is used for the packaging
energy saving: there is no heating tunnel with electrical resistances
stable and resistant packs thanks to the double cross wrap of film around the group of containers to be packed
easy machine access: ergonomic design of the system, typical of the ERGON range
MotorNet System® automation and control based on Sercos filedbus
operator panel with 7’’ interactive touchscreen display with interface in 32 languages and simple and user-friendly controls
motors equipped with built-in digital servo-drivers: solution that generates less heat inside the electrical cabinet, thus reducing energy costs of heat waste and air conditioning fitted on the machine
fewer CO2 emissions: more benefit for the environment
aesthetic advantages: the bull eye, typical of the packs made in film only, has a reduced size and is on the short size of the pack
On the machine infeed belt, a specific system of motorized oscillating guides correctly channels the loose containers towards the pack formation area.
Then, a mechanical system, composed of a synchronized press with compensation bars, group the containers in the desired format. The packs created proceed short size leading.
The use of brushless motors in the film unwinding phase ensure a precise adjustment of the tensioning. The film double cross wrapping system ensures resistant and long-lasting packs: the first reel wraps the pack clockwise, while the second one wraps it anticlockwise, thus performing a crossed wrap around the containers in transit. Thanks to an innovative vertical heated resistance system, controlled by a brushless motor, the film cutting operation happens in two phases: in front of and behind the pack in transit.
