A small machine born of a great tradition
The SW 200 has been specifically developed for the low-speed packaging of rectangular or oval soap bars in sizes ranging from 75 to 200 g. With the launch of this unit ACMA now offers a complete range of machines in the soap sector, with a portfolio of solutions to suit all production requirements. ACMA is the global leader in soap packaging solutions, and its development of the SW 200 is the result of exclusive knowhow that has enabled the creation of one of the most versatile units on the market.
ACMA SW 200: just one machine for multiple needs
The SW 200 comes with features suited to different types of customers, including those in the luxury goods sector that require high-quality wrapping rather than speed, and co-packers that favour solutions with the flexibility to handle rapid changes in format. Other target customers for the SW 200 include small and medium-sized manufacturers in the laundry sector, and large multinationals in the consumer goods sector that can fully exploit the machine’s features to produce pilot batches in preparation for large-scale new product launches.
The ACMA philosophy: anticipating the needs of the global market
The features of the ACMA SW 200 also enable it to cater to a diverse range of needs geographically: there is an exponentially growing demand for third-party manufacturing in regions like South East Asia, while the need to produce pilot batches is particularly strong in markets such as those in Africa and the Middle East. ACMA is therefore ready to offer the best solution for the consumption habits of the relevant market and, therefore, of the end consumers themselves.
With regard to this, recent studies show that soap bars are one of the solutions that can ensure the highest level of personal hygiene (more so, for example, than liquid soap); an aspect of particular importance at the current moment in time. The soap sector appears to be thriving, with the latest figures from Statista indicating a global market value of 20 billion dollars in 2019 and growth in the specific context of soap bars. In a key country like the United States, for example, soap bars were used by over 273 million people in 2020.
Easy to position and use
The SW 200 features a compact layout that enables it to be used within different contexts, even where there is little space available in the production area. The machine is both highly ergonomic and constructed to facilitate maintenance operations, at the same time enabling format changes to be carried out more rapidly. The ACMA design team, finally, has worked to automate the functions of the SW200 as fully as possible, making it easier for less expert operators to use.
