FB*PROPAK completed a highly advanced, $6.5m automated turnkey project for CoPack Beverages. Built on a green-field site in Melbourne, the versatile multi-pack lines cater to the new generation of wine-in-a-can products, in addition to a range of beverages including RTD’s, beers, fruit juices, ice teas, energy drinks and soft drinks.
The state-of-the-art project features large volume output of 30,000 cans/hr and 15,000 bottles/hr, on a floor space of 3,600sq/mtr. With the challenges of working in a difficult environment whilst the green-field site was still under construction; the installation met strategic timelines and commissioned under full production conditions.
"The unique project was remarkably delivered and operational within a 12 month period. Our Melbourne site features the latest innovations and operational excellence, which are the keys that gives us a competitive edge”, commented Luke Cusack, Operations Manager for CoPack Beverages.
FB*PROPAK’s breadth of involvement included consultancy, project management, conception, design, manufacture, delivery, installation, commissioning and after sales service.
Utilising FB*PROPAK’s process engineering knowledge, the packaging lines feature P.E. labellers, SMI wrap around packers, F.B.L pasteurisers, Bieffe conveyors and automation, UNI.MAC depalletisers and palletisers, with additional expertise provided by European engineering partner, FRAMAX.
CoPack Beverages is a ‘one-stop’ contract filling beverage service provider, enabling small to medium businesses to launch products with the elimination of the initial capital outlay on plant and equipment.
