Beverage industry work has been one of CLE’s core markets since our inception over 55 years ago. Our Mechanical and Electrical Engineering departments are well seasoned in the various challenges that will make your line run reliably and efficiently.
High speed lines are capable of speeds in excess of 2400 parts per minute and Can Lines Engineering knows how to handle the situation. Getting your product from bulk to single file for filling, labeling, and inspection takes careful planning and gentle handling equipment to ensure that product is not damaged and with little waste. Additionally, pulling rejects out at high speed without interrupting the line flow can be challenging and CLE has experience with various secondary equipment providers and knows how to successfully integrate these devices for problem free running. Accumulations zones are also critical on beverage line and CLE can review the various options from inline mass accumulation to alternate path options to make sure the best style is selected to ensure smooth line operation without costly micro-stops.
Odd shaped bottles often found on slower lines running wines and other spirits provide many challenges even without the high speeds. Single filing, inspecting, rejecting and combining these difficult containers require careful planning and equipment selection. CLE is up to the task with our various pressureless combiners, gentle handling accumulators, precision controls and know how required to get bottles/containers through the line without knocking them down or breaking them.
Beer bottles, to 2L PET soda bottles, odd shaped wine bottles and everything in between, count on CLE’s vast experience in designing, building, and installing new beverage lines and upgrading current lines to improve your bottom line.
