Outstanding strength and sealing performance make lugged caps a perfect packaging solution for tomato-based and other products. For example, baby food has one of the highest development potentials as regards the manufacture and use of twist-off PVC-free caps in multiple materials and formats.
Thanks to the vacuum system, which ensures both quality and product preservation, and the excellent oxygen barrier that the cap-liner system guarantees throughout its lifecycle, this type of cap is one of the most widely used in the food and beverage industry.
Completing the advantages of the lugged cap are its resistance to high temperatures (e.g. during pasteurization and/or sterilization) and the huge variety of formats in which it can be produced, from 38 mm to 82 mm in diameter.
There is also a broad variety of usable materials and the exterior can be decorated, a key element when it comes to promoting product and brand.
Sacmi technology ensures a series of advantages:
SACMI offers a broad range of inspection systems for both the visible exterior and the functional part of lugged caps like Twist-Off or Euro twist. The inspection systems in the MVS range can be incorporated in the PMA lining machine or used to inspect caps on existing production lines.
DECOCAP 360-3D is the new system for inspecting the exterior of lugged closures. It uses 5 video cameras: one inspects the decoration from above and the other 4 check the side wall.
The Sacmi CVS360-3D illuminator and software allow perfect 2D reconstruction of the 3D object, eliminating any distortion that might stem from perspective, lens, the shape of the lid or the reflectiveness of the surface.
An â€œAll-in-Oneâ€ system for inspecting the functional side of caps with lugged closures such as twist-off or euro-twist.
Based on the patented Chrometriq100-IR illuminator (RGB + IR light), this uses a 5Mpixel video camera that can capture two images in just a few microseconds (Double Shot function). Incorporation of the PC in the image capture unit provides a compact connection-free solution that is easy to install.
