SIPA, headquartered in Vittorio Veneto, Italy, with a major mold refurbishing center in Atlanta, GA, will showcase the latest version of its ECS SP injection-stretch-blowmolding (ISBM) system at NPE in booth S17085.
SIPA will introduce improvements to its ECS SP Hybrid system in the Bottle Zone at NPE2018. The system is suited for the production of containers for cosmetics, dairy, personal care, pharmaceutical and alcoholic products, mainly in sizes between 10 and 50 ml. Larger containers as well as wide-mouth jars up to 12.5 L can be accommodated. Thanks to 40 bar blow air pressure, the system can produce all sorts of shapes within the chosen size range.
The ECS SP also features a new quick mold-change system that can reduce changeover times by approximately 25%.
Given global interest in the “circular economy,” SIPA will be talking about PET bottle recycling, highlighting XTREME Renew, the system it co-developed with recycling technology specialist EREMA. The system allows the direct processing of PET flakes from post-consumer recycled bottles into food contact–compliant injection-compression molded preforms in a fully integrated process.

On May 8 at 12:15 PM, Morris De Marchi, PET Packaging and Tooling Life Cycle Service Director at SIPA North America, will address the Bottle Zone Technical Forum on the topic of the importance of a fast and cost-effective response by the plastics industry. He will show how local refurbishing and conversion centers can provide a fast and efficient way of upgrading production without having to make a major investment in completely new tooling.
On May 9, at 12:15 PM, General Manager Enrico Gribaudo will make a presentation at the same venue addressing PET preform manufacturing in the era of the circular economy and how it can be accomplished in a financially viable way.
A global supplier of equipment for production of PET preforms and bottles, SIPA will be showing its full range of equipment for one- and two-stage production of PET containers; its expertise in bottle design, mold development and construction; its equipment for bottle filling and packaging; and its turnkey system capabilities.
