Levissima, part of Sanpellegrino Group (Nestlé Waters), has installed Sidel’s EvoDECO Roll-Fed to improve the quality of its label application while increasing output capacity.

The company wanted to address a growing demand for bottled water in Italy with the complete line, producing its re-designed 1.5 litre Alpine water bottles.

The re-designed bottle now comes with a shorter neck but retains the brand’s iconic squared shape, produced at a high output speed of more than 46,000 bottles per hour (bph). 

Other changes include; Levissima’s logo and label which features the Alps mountaintop, it is designed on transparent film and the color of the logo is reflected on its green cap, shaped ergonomically and easy to open. 

Franco Simoncini, plant manager, Levissima, said the long-standing partnership between Sidel and Nestlé Waters also contributed to the success of the installation. 

EvoDECO Roll-Fed has two labelling stations; the label application squared bottles is carried out with a pad-to-pad transfer, and it has a vertical melter and laser engraved glue roller, where glue is melted on demand and circulated at a precise temperature. 

Levissima has also invested in a Sidel Matrix Combi; integrating blow molding, filling and capping processes into a single system, the Combi reduces operating costs and uses up to 30% less floor space compared with traditional standalone equipment. 

Sidel SF100 no contact filler

The Combi supplied to the Cepina site is equipped with a Sidel SF100 no contact filler. The reduced filler enclosure is hygienic and minimises use of water and chemicals during the external cleaning process. 

The Sidel Matrix Combi at Levissima’s site also features OptiFeed ​– a cap feeder that is based on a patented waterfall technology, combining elevation, orientation and high-speed feeding with energy savings.
