SACMI at Propak West Africa 2019


In Africa – a continent strategic to the Group’s investment plans – SACMI is leading the way in both technology and service. All the latest 2019 products for sustainable plastics and the new after-sales advanced service package to be showcased.

A major player across Africa, with dedicated branches and facilities and broad investment/development plans, SACMI will soon be taking part in Propak West Africa 2019 to showcase its latest products and illustrate the outlook for the industry. The fair – to be held in Lagos, Nigeria, from 17 to 19 September – is West Africa’s biggest packaging, food processing, labelling & printing technology event.

Visitors to the SACMI stand (in the collective Italian UCIMA display area) will have a great opportunity to get a close look at the Group’s extensive range and receive valuable advice – from the leading firm on the beverage plastics conversion market – on choosing the technology that best suits their needs.

The common thread running through all SACMI products and technology is sustainability.

These range from the CCM platform – expanded in 2019 to include the multi-layer caps solution – to SACMI IPS, the most reliable, versatile PET preform-making unit that can use up to 100% recycled material. Then, there’s the CBF, perfect for dairy and pharma as it can process all commercially available resins in a versatile, high performance manner while boosting quality and lowering running costs.

These are just some of the SACMI solutions that combine to form an integrated total quality control system that uses a wide range of CVS vision systems featuring cutting-edge algorithms and AI. Moreover, the new SACMI Customer Service Division provides advanced assistance services throughout the working life of the machine and/or plant and offers innovative on-line services via SACMI S.P.A.C.E (Sacmi Portal for Aftersales and Customer service Excellence).

SACMI South Africa and the two other branches strategically located on the continent provide readily available machine/plant assistance and training services, working alongside customers together with the R&D Lab in accordance with procedures approved by the industry’s main players.

SACMI, endless innovation since 1919.
