ADMAR DAMIAO GROUP
An important opening to complete lines in Africa
A new plant has been build in Lubango, where a complete line has been installed for 20,000 bottles per hour in PET. The plant can be further expanded in case of future needs. The line supplied is for 3 different sizes of bottles (0,33, 1 and 1.5 litres) for ﬂat and sparkling mineral water. At the beginning of the line a PPS48/48 produces preforms for the 3 sizes required.
In the blowing-ﬁlling-capping area, a Sincro Bloc 12.50.10 solution has been installed, which is composed of an SFR 12 rotary blowmolder, an ISOFILL isobaric ﬁller with 50 valves and a capper with 10 heads. The secondary packaging is managed with a shrink-wrapping machine and then the products are placed into cartons through the Unirwrap, a wrap-around case-packer. This solution is rather atypical but needed due to storage rationalization particular exigencies in an African area having a special logistics. The ﬁnished products are prepared for the large distribution though the automatic palletizer Genius- PTF2 and the stretch-wrapper.
The line supply obviously includes also all the conveyors, duly dimensioned for the correct running of the whole system and of all the connected accessory equipments (controls, markers, etc.
Sipa Berchi has been chosen as supplier thanks to its capacity to undestand the real customer needs, to give a professional consultancy from the engineering point of view of the complete line and for being a company capable of supplying a complete line at 360° with its own technology: starting from injection machines for the manufacturing of preforms down to the seconday packaging of ﬁ nished product. From Pellet to Pallet.
