Serac takes a stake in the equity of Xpertech

Serac takes a stake in the equity of Xpertech | Smart Packaging Solutions | Scoop.it

In April 2016, Serac has become a minority shareholder in Xpertech, a start-up company specialising in diagnostics for industrial equipment, located in Evry in the Essone region (91). This three-man company was created in 2013 by Gilles Morvan, and achieved a turnover of 200 000 Euros in 2015 with year-on-year growth of over 30%.

 

Whilst this merger will allow Xpertech to gain credibility by joining forces with an industrial partner, Serac will also be able to expand its services by offering two web-based solutions : XSED, a simple solution to manage the maintenance of equipment in real time and NET-TAG, a solution to identify individually each product and enable interaction with consumers.

Bottle made by vertical thermoforming technology

using pre-printed plastic sheet reels

 

Very successful in the drinking yogurt market with its vertical thermoforming machines that allow bottle production from PS or PP reels, Serac has recently gone a step further by adapting its simple, efficient and reliable solution to the thermoforming of bottles out of pre-printed PP reels.

 

The technical challenges of this new development were to define precisely the features required for the PP sheet as well as for the printing inks and to provide perfect positioning of the printed reel together with precise advance rate control.

 

For this particular application, Serac has equipped its machines with sensors and sets of cameras that ensure fast initial machine setting with minimum waste, and systematically check that the PP sheet is at the right place for the next stroke during production.

 

With this new development Serac probably offers the smallest footprint ever for on-site bottle manufacturing, using a vertical thermoforming process and requiring no labeler or sleeve applicator.

Serac Group 's insight:

With 3 new machines recently sold in the U.S.A and Europe for PP thermoforming, Serac confirms the benefits and reliability of its innovative technology.

Lighten quality control procedures

Lighten quality control procedures | Smart Packaging Solutions | Scoop.it

Having obtained from LNE a CE « Automatic Weighing Instrument » (AWI) type approval certificate  for its rotary fillers, Serac can now propose filling machines that can be used in legal metrology to any manufacturer willing to lighten quality control procedures, safeguard operators’ health and reinforce guarantees towards customers.


More safety for operators

Besides saving a great amount of time, taking far less samples out of the line for testing purpose also benefits to the health and safety of machine operators, especially when it comes to handling heavy packagings or dangerous products.

More guarantees for the consumer

Homologated equipment is an additional guarantee brought to consumers, that reinforce confidence in the fact that the quantity of product inside the packaging really complies with what is written on it. It is also a good selling point for sub-contracting manufacturers who package products under third party brands.

Finally, it is also an opportunity for manufacturers to enter some markets more easily and at lower costs, be those markets the European Community or any country (they are increasingly numerous) where legal metrology is seen as a strategic issue in order to protect consumers’ interests.

Blown from a 2,3g PET preform

Blown from a 2,3g PET preform | Smart Packaging Solutions | Scoop.it

Serac has installed a blow-fill-cap machine in Brazil (Combox), for the packaging of 50g yoghurt portions presented in an attractive fruit-shaped PET flask.

High precision stretch blow-moulding for tiny preforms
Blown from a PET preform of only 2.3 g, with nearly half of the mass concentrated in the neck, the fruit-shaped flask requires an expansion rate of 16 (4 times in both length and width), which is extreme in this industry. On such tiny preforms, the SBL blower from Serac clearly demonstrates a high level of precision in heating, stretching and blowing operations.

With our new blow-fill-cap Combox unit in operation, Serac demonstrates the benefits as well as the versatility of its single block solution.

Serac Group acquires 100% of shares in Agami

The French group Serac has purchased 100% of the shares in Agami, company located in Trappes, West of Paris. Serac Group had acquired a minority participation in Agami’s capital in 2010. Serac Group initially invested in Agami in order to support their groundbreaking innovation for which they held high hopes: manufacturing  polystyrene bottles from a plastic sheet (PS).

 

Serac has been supporting Agami’s development, providing an outlet for their machines and assisting in fine tuning their design. Several machines have been delivered for small size dairy bottles. Serac believes in the high potential of Agami's offering, which is perfectly compatible with Serac's strategy of diversifying into the packaging manufacturing market.

 

The technological challenges have all been met; the focus is now on investing in financial and human resources to increase sales. Concurrently developing new applications such as PP bottles manufacturing (polypropylene) and multi-layered bottles is forecasted to bring additional growth.

 

Agami’s founder, Stylianos Eleftheriou, is appointed General Manager and will lead the Research and Development department.

Multiple-function Machine : a new trend in Filling Equipment

Multiple-function Machine : a new trend in Filling Equipment | Smart Packaging Solutions | Scoop.it

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.
