From concept to the filled and capped bottle – Fast and flexible response

Sipa Hall A4 – Booth 304

Sipa will be showing its expertise in PET technology: container design and engineering, state-of-the-art preform injection capability, blowing and filling systems, sustainable solutions based on reduced consumption of utilities and virgin fossil-based materials which increased use of post-consumer recyclate. Focus points will be line integration, sustainability, and digitalisation.

Sipa’s intention is that visitors to its booth will gain a new perspective on packaging opportunities. Demonstrations and displays will provide a deep insight into customised solutions, paired with the flexibility to adapt to the fast-changing market, across diverse technologies.

Developments in single- and two-stage technologies

A thread running through the whole show will be stretch-blow moulding technology processing drinks containers with 100% post-consumer recycled PET, at new speeds, focusing particularly on simple and fast mould changeover. The stand-alone Xtra HMI facilitates an easy set-up thanks to a feature called Process Wizard. This feature is particularly important, given the continuing shortage in many places of skilled personnel. Also on the booth will be a single-stage ISBM system, which Sipa will be using to demonstrate how flexible the technology can be in production of a wide variety of containers – in this case, miniatures for liqueurs. The ability to respond to fast-changing customer and market requirements is more important than ever today, especially with the current substantial shortfall in availability of glass bottles.

Capabilities in mould making

Also on display will be a mould optimised to enable the highest preform production rate in the market, as Sipa states. Important for the future will be the capacity the company has to respond to customer calls for design modifications driven by changes in legislative requirement for bottle caps, which are likely to affect bottle neck designs.

Information zones and a world premiere

The booth will include a large area dedicated to packaging solutions, with in-depth displays showing the company’s capabilities in packaging design and engineering, from concept to finished, filled, fully recyclable container. At the centre of the stand will be information zones dedicated respectively to line integration, sustainability, digitalisation and filling. In conceiving, developing, and delivering fully integrated production systems that exactly fit the requirements of customers sees Sipa one of its competences. Getting its world premiere at Drinktec is the Xtreme Renew Sincro Cube system for creating filled and capped bottles from 100% rPET flakes in a single step.

The company will also demonstrate its comprehensive portfolio of solutions downstream from bottle blowing. A feature being highlighted is how a single Flextronic filling system can be designed to handle not only PET bottles, but glass bottles too.


In the sustainability zone, capabilities at the service of container producers, fillers and brand owners to reduce consumption of materials, energy, water, and compressed air, and to create containers that use the highest levels of recycled PET as well as alternative resins will be demonstrated. AWArPET, the new brand which communicates the company’s approach in the design and production of primary and secondary packaging according to respect environmental issues will be on display. Sipa’s constant guides are the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, as the company states.

Sipa’s Xtra blow moulding system

Even more digital

The zone on digitalisation will feature the latest innovations in Sipa’s technical services package, called the Echo System. This allows full control of system performance, increasing efficiency and optimising costs. It allows users to access information on any of its Sipa machines anywhere in the world, at any time.
