United Caps, a Luxembourg-based caps and closures manufacturer, has invested in trio-technik AirMove transport systems to streamline manufacturing process at its Schwerin plant in Germany.
The company installed four trio-technik AirMove transport systems at the facility, which mainly serves German beverage market.
With around 58 employees, the 10,000m² facility has two production halls, which are used to manufacture several billion 28mm and 38mm closures per year for still and carbonated water, juices and milk.
The Schwerin plant produces Proglass and Prostill products, in addition to Spark and Prospark closures.
AirMove system will be employed to transport all of the caps manufactured in the Schwerin plant through the quality control process.
United Caps chief manufacturing officer Olivier Jaillot said: “We are pleased to be partnering with trio-technik to demonstrate its innovative AirMove transport system at this important show.
“We implemented this system at the beginning of the year and have been extremely pleased with its performance. At Fakuma, we will be providing trio-technik with red PROSPARK and blue SPARK closures for use in their demonstrations.”
AirMove system features special steel pipes, which are designed for frictionless movement of parts, enabling to prevent damage during transport.
