PET preforms: Sacmi flies to Tehran to illustrate technological trends and developments

Published on February 26, 2016 by in PET News

The 1st edition of IranPET, the international symposium aimed at local and international operators in the industry, will soon be showcasing developments in IPS technology, since 2015 available in versions with up to 128 cavities and equipped with important new design features.

The latest developments in preform manufacturing injection technology will be the subject of a presentation by Sacmi at IranPET, the international symposium (the 1st  edition of which will be held this coming 11 – 12 April in Tehran) aimed at local and international operators in the PET manufacturing sector.

The focus of an ambitious medium-term investment plan, Sacmi’s technology for this industry hinges on the IPS (preform injection moulding) system, the preform production platform featuring injection technology: since 2015 this has also been available in 96 and 128-cavity (IPS 400) versions, providing manufacturers with higher PET quality, more efficient process automation and greater energy savings.

This Sacmi talk – to be given by Moraldo Masi, Business & Sales Manager of the Group’s Beverage Division is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Monday, 11th April. This 1st edition of the symposium takes place against the dynamic backdrop of both the country’s recent opening up to international investment and, in the PET sector, growing demand for solutions that combine high cap and container quality with cutting-edge innovations that let manufacturers make thinner, higher-performing packs and plastic caps in order to minimise environmental impact and operating costs.

One of only a handful of global players capable of leading the way in various technologies and industries, Sacmi is looking forward to presenting – alongside the popular CCM cap manufacturing series that uses compression technology – the latest developments on the IPS series. The latter offer, in addition to the proven advantages of the previous series (IPS 220), major design innovations such as preform unloading without the use of conveyors.

This talk by Sacmi (one of the international symposium’s sponsors) will have a strong focus on the technical specifications and advantages of the new platform, which has a pressing force of 400 tons and provides highly competitive cycle times (for example, the soundness of the technical solutions on the machine is clearly demonstrated by a lock-to-lock time of just 2.1 seconds). The concept of flexibility has undergone further development on the IPS400 too, although here the solutions aim for compatibility with the bulk of the moulds on the market rather than on size changeover speeds, which nevertheless remain on a par with the best the market has to offer.

Completing the picture is the excellent energy efficiency which, thanks also to the KERS energy recovery system on the post-cooler linear motor, means a consumption of just 0.2 kW/kg at maximum output rates (1220 kg/h).

Post Sanctions Iran Spells Big Opportunity for Global Packaged Food & Beverages Companies

Published on February 10, 2016 by in PET News

The lifting of sanctions in Iran is expected to attract a number of global packaged food and beverages companies. Iran has 80 million consumers that is a huge market for these companies.

Several companies from the UK, New Zealand, US and Europe are vying for a share of this market.

Dairy is one sector that is expected to attract new players. Iran is among the world’s top ten fastest-growing dairy markets (according to Euromonitor data). Currently, the country’s dairy market is dominated by local players such as Pega Dairy and Solico Food. However, global brand Danone has been in the Iranian dairy sector since 2007 via a JV with local player – Sahar, despite the sanctions.

Lifting of the sanctions can help consumers have access to newer dairy products from European countries and the US, which account for the largest dairy regions in the world. New Zealand based dairy major Fonterra also plans to leverage on Iran’s dairy opportunity.

There are also players such as Saudi Arabia based Savola, that supplies edible oils and ghees to the Iranian market.

Nestle also operates out of Iran from its local factories in Qazvin and Polour where it produces infant cereals and formula and bottled water for the market.

The opening of the market will also intensify competition between new entrants and domestic players. The competition will also be influenced by factors such as inflation, spending power of consumers and other market factors.

The dominant local grocery stores account for a major share of the market. New hypermarkets and supermarkets have to compete with these traditionally popular stores to grab a share of the market.

More on new opportunities in Iran will be discussed at Iran PET (Iran PET Market, Applications & Recycling) on 11-12 April, 2016 in Tehran.

Seven & i Holdings Promotes Recycled PET across Stores in Japan

Published on January 22, 2016 by in PET News

Seven & i Holdings has started to promote green packaging materials across its stores in Japan. Last year, it introduced recyclable trays in Ito-Yokado – its Japanese general merchandise store. Approximately 500 types of recyclable tray were introduced that marked an increase of 6% year on year by weight. This resulted in a CO2 emissions reduction of about 2,699 tons. The stores also use bioplastic containers to sell cut fruits and boxed lunches.

Moreover, the original ‘Salad Cup Container’ (sold in the chilled cases of Seven-Eleven Japan stores) were also replaced with recycled or biomass PET containers. The complete replacement is expected to be completed by end February, 2016.

It also installed automatic PET bottle recovery machines across Ito-Yokado, York Benimaru, and York-Mart. People can insert the PET bottles into the automatic recovery machines in the stores and they are then automatically cleansed of foreign matter and compressed/ crushed. This enables rPET manufacturers to obtain high-quality PET bottle chips. Moreover, it also helps to reduce transportation costs as the volume of crushed/compressed PET is much lesser.

The company also plans to use the collected recycled PET bottles and use them in packaging for Seven Premium private brand products.

7 & I Holdings will present its CSR initiatives and approach to sustainability at CMT’s 2nd JPET (Japan PET Resin Trade, Applications & Recycling) Summit on 15-18 March, 2016 in Tokyo.

ArKay Beverages Gets Approval to Export Soft Drinks to Iran

Published on January 11, 2016 by in PET News

Following the July 14 nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers that allows the lifting of sanctions on Iran, the US has granted approval for soft drinks exports to Iran.

A distribution contract signed in September between ArKay Beverages and Sonateb Parsian Ltd was approved by the US recently.

ArKay Beverages that is headquartered in Florida, produces alcohol-free drinks. The approval allows export and re-exports of soft drinks from the US to Iran.

ArKay will export soft drinks to Iran and will benefit from accessing the Iranian market that has about 100 million consumers.

Since the 1990s, when the sanctions were imposed on Iran, US corporations were prohibited from exporting their beverages to Iran.

More on the post sanctions developments in Iranian beverages and packaging sector will be discussed at IRANPET (Iran PET Market, Applications & Recycling) on 11-12 April, 2016 in Tehran.

Contact Ms. Hafizah at hafizah@cmtsp.com.sg or call +65 6346 9218 for more information.
