SIPA of Veneto, Italy recently worked with IDS Ukraine to develop a limited edition ball-shaped Morshinka branded mineral water bottle for the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship matches.
SIPA is a global leader of stretch blow moulding machines for the production of PET bottles.
IDS Ukraine is part of IDS Borjomi International, a large international producer of mineral water that has been working with SIPA since 2005 following the supply of two lines for the production of large bottles at their Oskar and Mirgrodskaya plants.
SIPA worked closely with IDS on the design of the limited edition ball-shaped 2.5L water bottle, providing valuable inputs on the optimum parameters for the reheat-stretch-blow moulding sequence as the container’s volume was close to the upper limit of the SIPA three-cavity SFL linear blow moulding machine’s capabilities.
SIPA also ensured the labels could be applied correctly onto the bottle, requiring minor modifications to be made to the panels of the bottle.
SIPA is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies
