New SACMI CCMM multilayer wins the 2018 FBE Award


The prestigious award from Asia Food Journal goes to a solution that offers a
new, innovative application of compression technology in the single-serve pod
manufacturing sector

Once again, this year sees SACMI scoop up the renowned FBE Award, an
initiative by the Asia Food Journal that acknowledges the most innovative
solutions in the food&beverage packaging field. Following the success of the
SACMI CBF, this year saw the jury's attention drawn to the new CCMM
(continuous compression multilayer moulding) press, the innovative
SACMI solution for the one-step manufacture of single-serve pods with
extraordinary oxygen barrier properties.

This is a two-pronged innovation: in addition to paving the way for new
market opportunities in what is a highly dynamic sector (the production
of foods and beverages in single-serve pods, especially coffee), this is, for
SACMI, yet another new application for a tried and tested technology that is
leading the way worldwide in plastic closure manufacturing.

Received on 24 th October, the FBE Award acknowledges SACMI& capacity to
transfer the intrinsic advantages of this technology to other sectors.
This is significant because the technology has the lowest running costs on the
market and offers undisputed advantages in terms of quality and process
control, as each individual cavity-mould can be controlled independently.

Already prototyped and tested successfully as part of an industrialisation
process involving major international players in the industry, the new
CCMM SACMI multilayer will, in the coming months, be showcased at key trade
fairs; displayed as a cutting-edge means of grasping new growth opportunities
in the coffee/tea/other beverage-food pod sector, this solution will stand
alongside other already-available SACMI solutions for the manufacture of
thermoformed pods.
