Turnkey line for PET

,
VP Editor Emeritus, Packaging World
Tousnina Sarl, a water bottler in Algeria, recently installed a turnkey line for PET bottles that runs at 20,000/hr.

Turnkey responsibility was in the hands of SMI. The solution installed consists of an ECOBLOC ERGON Series integrated system for stretch-blow molding, filling, and capping of PET bottles; an SK ERGON Series shrink wrapper for secondary packaging; an HA 80 handle applicator; a PACKSORTER pack divider/sorter; and an APS ERGON Series palletizer. The entire plant is equipped with an automation and control system of the latest generation incorporating the best technologies for the management of a “smart factory.”

All the machines installed in the new line are part of the ERGON range, which uses the most innovative technologies in the field of Industry 4.0 solutions, says SMI. The new installations respond completely to the growth expectations of this Algerian company, which has invested exclusively in latest generation systems to increase its production capacity.
