Aiming to Simplify, ACMA Renames Its Portfolio of Machines
ACMA, a part of the Coesia group, announced the company has renamed its portfolio of machines. The new ACMA approach, which was presented at Interpack 2017, follows the recent company relaunch and aims to respond even more closely to customer needs.
The intention was to make different machines easily identifiable through their name, reducing all information concerning the product, the technology, the production performance, and any special characteristics of the machine – such as the style of wrapping possible – to simply a few letters and numbers.
The first letter now indicates the products the machine should be used for, as T for Tea, C for Chocolate, S for Soap bars, etc. The second letter points out the type of packaging. The subsequent numbers indicate the maximum speed of the machine. Lastly, some models have a final letter which indicates a special characteristic of the machine, for example: CW 600 F: Chocolate, Wrapping, 600 ppm, Flat (flat-base chocolates).
This codification will make it easy for the customer to identify a machine line, as an example a soap line to have a flow-packed soap bar in a carton box, will be composed by three machines of the “S series”:
- SF 400: Soap, Flow packing
- SZ 450: Soap, (Z) Infeed & Distribution
- SC 550: Soap, Cartoning
