As food and beverage companies continue to prioritise the environmental impact of products, to minimise overall footprint, packaging plays an important part in the product lifecycle.
With innovative technical upgrades, SIG have reduced water consumption up to 50 percent on new and already installed third generation filling machines. This is another step forward on SIG’s Way Beyond Good journey – its roadmap to becoming a net positive business.
This latest water saving innovation will be included on all new SIG high-speed filling machines, which can fill 24,000 small-size carton packs per hour. The new technology is also available on most filling machines for carton packs with a size of up to 1.100 ml with a capacity of 12,000 carton packs per hour. Most of SIG’s third generation filling machines for small and medium size carton packs can also be fitted with a newly developed, and easy-to-fit, water reduction conversion kit, which halves water consumption by saving approximately up to 350 litres per hour.
SIG continues to work closely with customers to increase efficiency, cut operating costs and reduce environmental impact across the entire value chain. With a waste rate of below 0.5 percent, SIG’s fast and efficient filling technology plays a significant role in minimising overall waste in its customers’ factories.
