SA Showcases STRATUM at successful INTERPACK show

Shemesh Automation welcomed hundreds of intrigued guests to its stand at Interpack (4-10 May 2017, Dusseldorf, Germany) for live demos of it’s ground-breaking STRATUM liquid filling machine.

    For the first time ever, the newest version of its already proven top seller STRATUM– SA’s advanced in-line automatic servo driven filler for viscous and free flowing liquids, was on display at the Dusseldorf show.

Already sold to over 100 global players in the food and beverage, health and beauty, and chemical industries – both as a stand-alone unit and as a part of complete turnkey production line – The SA STRATUMis specifically designed to fill foaming viscous liquids with an ultra-high portioning accuracy of +/- 0.25% of filling volume. Throughput models offered range from 30ppm to over 200ppm.

    Filled with versatility
    From water, peanut butter and ink, to pastes, creams and paints – the SA STRATUM is designed to fill a wide range of liquids and particulates with a wide spectrum of viscosity levels.

The STRATUM is also unerringly accurate thanks to SA’s proprietary ‘no-drip, clear cut’ diving nozzles technology and design. Its bottom-up filling feature, which also allows for a sensitive programmable portioning speed graph for anti-foaming and dripping prevention, means you won’t waste a drop over 0.25% of filling volume!

  • Shai Shemesh, SA’s managing director and the Head of its London offices commented: “The Stratum is already one of our biggest selling machines, but as a company that religiously deploys over 15% of revenues into R&D, we have continued to develop the technology behind the machine for over 25 years now. This, coupled with our outside-the-box Israeli engineering approach, has helped position us as a market leader in the field of automated viscous filling machinery. The Stratum is designed to dovetail seamlessly with a full Shemesh Automation packaging line so, as always, at Interpack it was great to also have the opportunity to discuss our full range of capabilities including Automated Feeding, Loading, Filling, Sealing, Capping, Labeling and Packing ».
