First PET Inline Preform System at Sipa/Erema Open House

Numerous representatives from the beverage industry and well-known brands attended the three-day Open House held by Sipa S.p.A. and Erema at Sipa's headquarter in Vittorio Veneto, Italy, and saw a live production performance of the world's first PET Inline Preform system.

Sipa,manufacturer of PET packaging solutions, and Erema, specialists in the manufacturing of plastic recycling systems, have together developed a unique, flexible, direct processing solution to make food contact compliant inline preforms from PET flakes in a single step. The pivotal product from Erema in the collaboration is Vacurema technology, which is combined with Sipa's Xtreme preform production system.

According to the partners, the pioneering system offers PET processors economic and ecological benefits: energy savings, lower logistics and process costs and higher profitability thanks to the direct link of the two systems eliminating all the waste of the complete process. Another unique selling proposition over conventional injection molding is that lightweighting up to 8% is possible with the patented Xtreme preform design.

"We previewed this technology at the Discovery Day 2016 and it is now ready for production. There is increasing demand among customers for flexible and energy-saving processing possibilities," says Christoph Wöss, Business Development Manager for Bottle Applications at the Erema Group. Trials carried out previously on the PET Inline Preform system showed that the weight consistency, viscosity and colour values of the preforms – depending on flake quality – are on a par with those of virgin material.

"This innovative technology makes real the dream of a circular sustainable economy with results exceeding our most optimistic expectations at the beginning of the project. The rPET preforms have quality properties and performances comparable to the injection molded preforms made in virgin resin," says Enrico Gribaudo, General Manager of Sipa.
