A strong focus on the cosmetic packaging market, which has become one of the group’s strategic cornerstones. This is how Marchesini will appear at Hispack 2018, the packaging, process & logistics exhibition to be held in Barcelona from May 8th to 11th this year.
Customers will be welcomed at the exhibition booth in Barcelona by the team of STE Pharma Systems S.L., who will illustrate the machines on show: the Farplus overwrapper, the MV 545 jar filling & capping machine and the DUMEK turboemulsifier TURBO-MEK 200. Guests may also discuss the growing importance of the Spanish market, which boosted the Group’s figures in 2017, as well as the new Beauty Division to be opened near the Group’s current Headquarters in Italy.
Machines exhibitedFarplus C is a new and incredibly ergonomic automatic wrapper and consequently easy to clean. It has a Robocombi product infeeder and a product By-pass outside the machine to ensure a non-stop production of 80 packages per minute.
Thanks to the variety and high quality of the possible closure methods - from standard, to packaging individual or bundled products, such as all shapes and sizes of perfume bottles, to dot-seal closure and tear tape for easy opening - Farplus C is ideal for packaging cosmetic products.Farplus C has a standard version, with side holding belts and an optimised version for cosmetics, which has holding plates that enable dot seal type closure.MV 545 is a jar filler/capper with carousel, designed according to the highest of technological standards in order to guarantee top production performance and product quality. The machine can process symmetrical jars, using standard size parts, but also unusually shaped jars, using pucks.
The dispensing unit has tri-clamp fittings (hopper, pump, valve and nozzle) and can be transferred - completely assembled in one piece - on a special trolley from the work zone to the washing zone. The possibility to equip the filling units with CIP or SIP systems further simplifies washing off-line.
There are also various solutions for the cap and jar infeeds, according to specific automation requirements: from manual systems on a conveyor belt, semi-automatic systems from a vibrator or carousel, through to robotic systems for no-touch infeed, also with automatic size change-over.
The DUMEK brand will be represented by the turboemulsifier TURBO-MEK 200, designed to process liquid and creamy products such as emulsions (cream and milk products), serums, oils and balms, gels and lotions; special versions of these machines can process other specific products such as make-up (mascara, foundation), hair dyes, toothpaste and mud products.
All the functions required to ensure efficient operation of the turbo-emulsifiers and to set the working parameters are managed and programmed from the control panel with software developed in-house exploiting DUMEK technologies.
