Serac has recently implemented a new blow-fill-cap unit in Brazil, for the packaging of 50 g yoghurt portions presented in an attractive fruit-shaped PET flask. By taking up the challenge of blowing and filling such a delicate packaging, Serac opens new perspectives for all dairy manufacturers willing to develop single portion packaging in order to answer economic issues or meet on-the-go consumption needs.
Packagers are asking for machines that can perform multiple functions beyond that of the traditional monobloc filler/capper.
CPGs also want more equipment flexibility to accommodate a continually expanding range of packaging formats, including a wider variety of container shapes, sizes, material structures, and closure mechanisms.
Five years from now, some machine builders predict more complexly integrated machines with software adaptations that can handle maybe four to six operations (for example, filling, capping, labeling, coding, cartoning, and casing) in one system. Also predicted are multiple production cells if one module fails, you can take it out and replace it without having to replace the entire system.
Serac is offering machines that include packaging distribution, filling and capping functions linked through a starwheel positive transfer system which saves 25% floor space .
The distribution unit can be completed with neck trimming, rinsing or blowing units, to clean or decontaminate containers before filling.
