SIG expands global partnership with Nestlé
Date 10.16.2018 | Category: News
With SIG's flexible and efficient solutions, Nestlé Brazil sees itself well equipped to meet current requirements. Its well-loved Molico and Ninho UHT milks have been packaged and marketed in combiblocMidi since the start of this year. For this purpose, a SIG CFA 812 filling machine with a capacity of 12,000 packs per hour is in operation at the Nestlé plant in Carazinho (RS), better known as Nestlé Sul.
94% Technical Line Efficiency
Installed since the beginning of 2018, the SIG system has already proved invaluable. Antonieta Hilst, Regional Director at SIG South America: “Many systems would require two filling machines to fill different volumes but the SIG system enables the filling of 3 different volumes – 500, 750 and 1,000 ml – on the same machine, with very high levels of efficiency and a simplified set up”.
The SIG CFA 812 filling machine is now running at 94% Technical Line Efficiency
Said Anselmo Nascimento, Nestlé Sul Plant Manager: “We have surpassed our average 58-60 hours’ production time, reaching new cycle times of 72 hours. SIG’s line has also achieved excellence in terms of our quality and standards, especially with regard to food safety, aseptic validation, excellent line efficiency of 94% and an average loss of less than 0.2%.”
Today’s beverage manufacturer needs to meet the demands of today’s consumer with the right product and a packaging concept that delivers in terms of functionality and convenience. Already working with Nestlé around the globe, SIG’s flexible filling line is opening doors in Brazil to new beverage occasions and promoting exciting new business opportunities through product innovation and differentiation.
