SIG launches new F&B filling tech

SIG has launched its next generation Food & Beverage filling technology and family-size packaging at Gulfood Manufacturing 2021 in Dubai.

This coincides with the global launch of SIG NEO, its filling machine for family-size carton packs with up to 18,000 packs per hour, as well as the versatile combivita pack. It features a built-in smart asset management system, a connected user interface, and robotics.

It offers best-in-class sterility rates and reduced consumption of resources – adding to improved total cost of ownership and a 25% lower carbon footprint compared to SIG’s current generation filling machines for family-size carton packs.

Available in three volume sizes (500, 750 and 1,000ml), combivita has a slanted top and wider opening to ensure a smooth and easy pouring. SIG’s new tethered, easy open, and resealable closure truTwist is 32.5mm in diameter helping to enable a convenient experience.

For beverage manufacturers, the side corner panels of combivita provide additional on-pack branding opportunities. The highly robust combivita pack enables 100% pallet utilisation and reduces secondary packaging and logistical costs, compared to existing carton formats.

Ali Kaylan, SVP Innovation at SIG, said: “The pandemic has fuelled a paradigm shift in consumer habits, including working from home and buying products in advance. As a result, the demand for convenient family-size products and packaging formats has grown exponentially.

“Our new combivita carton pack makes life more simple, convenient, flexible and sustainable for both consumers and our customers.”
