Established in 2013 as the evolution of SGS, a company in operation since 1994, SGS Italia is based in Montale, near Pistoia, and specializes in the construction of plastic film welding lines and accessories. As well as boasting the technical skills inherited from its experience as SGS, the company can also count on organizational flexibility and its capacity of providing a prompt response to the needs of processors, which has allowed it to acquire a significant market share, especially in Europe.
In fact, approximately 70% of SGS Italia output is destined to Europe, with Greece and France being at the top of the list, while approximately 20% is sold in Italy and the remainder is destined to North Africa and Turkey. It still remains a family run business – with Gaetano, Giovanni and Stefano Stanzione making up the management – and it has a dozen employees and is enjoying a significant growth in turnover.
Sgs Italia is taking part at the K in Düsseldorf (hall 3, stand G90) for the first time, with catalogues, videos, simulations and production tests in order to present its entire range. With great attention being given to the Cronoroll – I, and Cronotek lines.
Sgs Italia also produces a range of accessories that can be installed both on its own welding units as well as on extrusion lines. This includes the Cronoline pre-cutting and welding line, which forms the heart of the Cronoroll – I line, but which can be used in-line with extruders, so that it fitted with wheels that facilitate movement within the production department. It has an excellent production yield and reaches extraction speeds up to 180 metres per minute. The accessories also include the Sealine 45° unit for slant 45° welding on the gussets. It is also highly versatile and can be adapted to any welding or extrusion line. Both these accessories are controlled by 4 servomotors, which always ensure perfect film tautness and constant, high quality sealing.
