Xform equipped with high cavitation preform mould – Sipa, Hall 11 Booth P51
Sipa will present its complete technology and service offering for PET rigid packaging. Highlights include production equipment and moulds for preforms and containers, as well as assistance for customers in development of high-performance packaging.
The company offers expertise in production equipment and support in container development to PET packaging companies in China and around the world by providing local consultancy on bottle design and engineering.
Emphasis will be given to Xform PET preform injection moulding systems. The machines, now in their fourth generation, are claimed to stand out with their performance in output rates and quality, energy efficiency, reliability and low maintenance costs.
Moulds made by Sipa can hold as many as 200 cavities – something no other company can offer, according to the company – thanks in part to the incorporation of high-performance hot runner systems developed and produced in-house. Repeat orders from major Chinese customers, as well as global operators with operations in the country, continue to come in for Xform systems.
The Xform platform covers three machine sizes, with clamp forces of 280, 350 and 500 t, each of them enabling cost-efficient production of PET preforms. Sipa says that they excel when running with their on-house produced moulds, but they can also accept moulds built by any other major manufacturer.
While Sipa makes its machines in Italy, it has also an important mould-making and advance refurbishing operations successfully serving the bigger players in the Chinese market.
Among its latest innovations is the AWArPET brand, developed to communicate the company’s approach in the design and production of primary and secondary packaging that involves the utmost respect for the environment. Sipa’s product design experts are involved in the development of thousands of new packaging designs every year, and in all of these, the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – provide constant reference points.
