    A glass line of 18,000 bph. Formats: 0.125 – 0.25 – 0.275 – 0.33 – 0.355 – 0.5 – 0.66 – 0.75 L.

    In Stockport, near Manchester there is one of the oldest English breweries. The characteristic unicorn that stands out on its bottles is known all over the UK and makes Frederic Robinson one of the most appreciated breweries.

    The whole brewing process takes place on the historical site of the company, while the bottling and packaging process takes place in the more modern production centre in nearby Bredbury. It is well known how demanding brewers are and so “possessive” of their production processes. For this reason, the choice of ACMI as supplier of the palletisation line is of great importance. Since this is a glass line with a speed of 3,000 packs per hour to the palletiser, the most important parts are made up of the Fenix 145 V shrink wrapper with the tray former and the Twisterbox layer formation system.

     

    FENIX SHRINK WRAPPER

    The Fenix shrink wrapper installed at Frederic Robinson is the single lane 145 V with the tray former and is characterized by great flexibility and ease of use. The machine, managed through a touch screen operator panel does not require any special maintenance and switches from one format management to another with great speed, being able to pack 4x2, 4x3 and 6x4 trays.

     

    TWISTERBOX

    At this point of the line there is another important ACMI patent, the Twisterbox layer formation system. The customer opted for the single module version, which was more than enough to handle the amount of trays arriving from the line. Thanks to the robotic arm system, the Twisterbox is able to handle with extreme care and precision any container and contents, while ensuring line efficiency and product integrity. The glass bottles and the beer just bottled find in Twisterbox the ideal machine for palletisation. The layer formation system has extraordinary product handling capacity, high efficiency and a unique ease of format changeover (all operations are carried out exclusively via the operator panel without any mechanical intervention by the operator). It is one of the most important components of the end of line, even able to adapt to very high production speeds, and has now become an essential part for the production of an evolved and high efficiency end of line.

    The ACMI supply ends with the rotating arm stretch wrapper and with the pallet conveyors.
