The Italian firm has introduced the HY7, a new multi-style flat-base praline wrapping machine, that offers output rates as high as 700 pieces per minute, according to the designers.

Marketed under the Carle & Montanari name – the Group’s long-standing brand with 110 years’ experience in the industry – this latest wrapping system has been developed to respond to modern manufacturing/market challenges but remains faithful to the firm’s long tradition of confectionery packaging excellence.

The past 16 months has changed lifestyles and triggered new approaches to production and consumption – and SACMI Packaging & Chocolate said it has responded with HY7, which features all the new normal must-haves: efficiency, adaptability and a focus on sustainability.

Predictive maintenance capabilities make the machine highly efficient: once the ideal settings for each movement have been defined, early-stage diagnostics ensure real-time detection of any deviations and prevent downtimes. The system also allows for the early procurement of spare parts, ensuring tip-top maintenance.

Extremely linear design and a greatly simplified drive train have resulted in few movements and few spare parts, simplified maintenance, lower Total Cost of Ownership compared to alternative solutions and greater reliability thanks to the solidity of all moving parts.

Sustainability is also a key feature of the new hardware and the HY7 is the first ‘hybrid’ technology wrapping machine, SCAMI claimed. Design and operation are based not only on traditional mechanical transmission but also on high-performance, energy-efficient servo drives; moreover, the various machine units have 40% fewer components than previous models.
