SIPA Berchi of Veneto, a global manufacturer of stretch blow moulding machines for the production of PET bottles, have successfully installed a SIPA SincroBloc system for a Spanish edible oil producer and packager.
The Cargill Company in Spain specialises in the production and packaging of edible oils. Their new SIPA SincroBloc stretch blow moulding system will create light weight PET bottles for their popular brands of oil products, such as Primadonna.
The use of extremely lightweight containers is a major focal point for the edible oil market, as the containers compensate for the product’s intrinsic weight while simultaneously maintaining a competitive price point for the end consumer.
Edible oil containers must also be visually appealing and highly functional. They need to be able to transport the valuable contents without damage or product leakage.
The SIPA SincroBloc stretch blow moulding system is a compact integrated blowing, filling and capping system.
The SFR Evo Blowmoulder series has a production speed of up to 2,200 bottles per cavity per hour. The blowmoulder and filling machine are electronically synchronised and connected together with a bottle transfer unit. Bottles are positively transferred via a star-wheel module, allowing for the smooth transfer of any type of bottle.
The SIPA SincroBloc stretch blow moulding system allows its own rotary blowmoulders to be synchronised with other manufacturers’ filling machines, a very rare feature. This was a key factor in Cargill’s purchase decision, along with the premium quality and high production speeds of the SIPA machinery.
Cargill’s SIPA SFR Evo Blowmoulder was connected to a third party weight filling machine.
