Sitma is pleased to announce its participation at the PPMA show, which will take place on September 26-28 in Birmingham (UK), in cooperation with its long term UK partner, Engelmann & Buckham (E&B) – stand E46. Visitors can learn more about Sitma’s latest offerings for sustainable packaging machinery for e-commerce and frozen food.
Solutions for sustainable packaging & e-commerce
The PPMA show now includes a focus on e-commerce packaging and aims to provide an overview of solutions addressing key challenges such as how to make packaging more sustainable while still remaining protective and economical.
Sitma’s pack-to-size solutions like E-wrap, FastPack and FastPack Plus produce customized and compact paper-based packages in full automation with high productivity. By sizing the package based on the product size, Sitma solutions reduce the material used and optimize vehicles’ loading capacity significantly, reducing emissions and cost.
Sustainable material innovation to increase protecting performance
Over the years Sitma has adapted its machines to support the growing development of paper-based packaging materials produced by industry leaders such as Billerud, Mondi and UPM. Sitma’s customers run thousands of meters of 100% recyclable kraft paper on a daily basis; this is the ideal solution to replace plastic packaging when shipping several product types, such as fashion, media and personal care.
Sitma has recently expanded its applications offerings by validating on its solutions innovative papers with increased protective characteristics, such as cardboard paper or the innovative protective paper bubble mailer just announced by 3M. These innovations open a wide range of opportunities for e-commerce and third-party logistics (3pls) which can now consider paper-based wrapping for more delicate products such as electronics accessories, toys, books, jewelry and more.
Solutions for food packaging
In addition to innovative paper-based packaging solutions, Sitma offers a wide range of packaging systems for multiple industries, including frozen food (particularly pizzas), baked goods, confectionery and seafood.
Sitma’s wrapping machines dedicated to frozen foods are built with stainless steel, a material that guarantees the highest sanitary standards in the food sector. At the same time, they are characterized by a modular and flexible construction that guarantees high accessibility for the operator and simplicity for cleaning and maintenance.
