Location: Derbyshire, United Kingdom
In order to reduce costs and improve quality, Diversey Care Products were looking to bring in-house some products that were being packed by outside suppliers.
Products ranged from free flowing foamy detergents through to viscous washing-up liquids. Container sizes ranged from 500ml to 10 litres.
One cap was particularly awkward to tighten due to its design and the orientation required on the bottle.
The line needed to run using only two operators.
Products to fill:
Posimatic EV5000 automatic filling machine
Beltorque BT-ST cap tightening machine
Cap Hopper Elevator
Vibratory Cap Feeder
Bottles were manually placed onto the conveyor and filled automatically. Caps were automatically sorted and placed onto the filled bottles, before being tightened automatically and then transferred into the client’s new labelling system.
Universal were referred to Diversey by an existing supplier and the whole project went to plan and has been up and running successfully since June 2015. Diversey have since placed an order for additional equipment for placing cups onto fabric softener bottles and this will be installed in the summer of 2016.
