Single Machine Replaces Two Packaging Lines Saving Labor & Floor Space
ALEXANDRIA, MN. (March 31, 2020) – Douglas’ single machine solution provided top to bottom savings for a major beverage producer. The machine replaced five machine centers from two packaging lines that separately produced carrier baskets in trays and tray-shrink packs of individual bottles from the 720 per minute filler. By incorporating carrier basket loading onto the infeed of the Contour™ SPS‐80 Shrink Wrap System, the single machine center produces tray-shrink packs for both carrier baskets and loose bottles, reducing floor space, operating costs and maintenance.
