Efficiency improvements at Edgemill Group with its new bottling and labelling line.
"Prior to this new installation, Edgemill was a fully manual operation from rinse through to pack. This format achieved a run efficiency of 9.5 bottles/min and requires six staff members on the line. The new FB*PROPAK line can achieve 25 bottles/min and only requires two staff members, and the line can run anything from 50 mL bottles to 1.5 L bottles.
This works out to 47½ cases/h (285 cases/shift x 6 staff) v 125 cases/h (750 cases/shift x 2 staff) — an impressive improvement in efficiency."
