Sipa SpA and Sacmi Inola S.C. — two of Italy's major machinery manufacturers — have teamed up to develop a S.U.P.E.R. combination of PET preform and closure.
The acronym stands for “sustainable, unique, productive, easy and reliable.”
Sipa's expertise is in preforms; Sacmi's in compression molding machines to make caps and closures.
The result features a combination of a preform neck finish and lightweight caps. The proprietary technology is covered by patents.
Officials of both companies said the technical collaboration is the best way to differentiate the firms from the competition.
