Recently Omega Packing, a Panamanian industrial consulting and engineering company has invested in Sipa technology purchasing an Xtra rotary stretch-blow molding system for the production of bottles dedicated to rum and liquor market. Omega Packing, infact, cooperated with an important spirit brand in Central America that was seeking out for lightweighted bottles for spirits.
The production of the new lightweighted packaging happen on a six-cavity Xtra 6 that makes bottles in four sizes. It is achieving outputs up to 15,000 bph. The preforms it uses were also designed by Sipa and supplied by a local converter that is using Sipa’s tooling for the production.
The liquor bottle was already made in PET, but the Xtra 6 means it can make them lighter than ever, thanks to its high precision bottle/preform manipulation and high overall performances of the system. The company can take full advantage of complete packaging development (preform and bottle) to achieve high performance with low weight. And of course it can also profit from the class-leading output and energy-efficiency of the Xtra system.
Omega Packing was born in 2016 and is an industrial consulting and engineering company with extensive Latin American experience in design, sourcing and installing equipment and integrating automated lines for processing, bottling, labelling and packaging that provides personalized, efficient and rentable solutions for the food industries, drinks with or without alcohol and mass consumption, among others.
