Spreafico adds new cartoning machines to capsule filling portfolio

PKBR Staff Writer Published 03 May 2018

Italy-based Spreafico Automation, a company specialized in designing and marketing machines for the packaging of coffee capsules and soluble products, is expanding its portfolio with a series of cartoning machines for the boxing of capsules.

The line offers Spreafico’s customers packaging solutions that cover entire stages after the processing.

The company’s cartoning machines are based on a mechanical construction and can be combined with the other machines produced by the Italian firm, offering performances that are in line with market demands.

The new cartoning machines, which extend the company’s capsule filling portfolio, provide high accessibility to various components, easy control and, minimal maintenance needs.

Spreafico machines can handle the entire main compatible capsule types on the market, from Nespresso to Dolce Gusto.

The company said the machines guarantee a residual percentage of oxygen inside the capsule of less than 1%, to offer for a better quality of the product and a longer shelf life.

It allows clients to count on high levels of flexibility, which enables them to meet their requirements with respect to manufacturing speed and products.

The engineering skills that Spreafico can use allow for a better support of the client, guiding them in the selection of the line layout and, if required, act as the main contractor for projects that have various partners.

Spreafico, which is based in Lecco, operates on the global market. It has clients in countries including Spain and the Netherlands and, outside of Europe, South Africa, Australia, Canada, China and Thailand.

Earlier this year, Caffè Carraro selected Spreafico for its production lines dedicated to coffee in capsules.

Caffè Carraro, which is headquartered in Schio, Vicenza, specializes in the roasting, packaging and distribution of coffee.

The company decided to equip itself with three production lines dedicated to the packaging of coffee in capsules, all of which leverage Spreafico machines.
