A complete brik line includes all the machinery for the production with carton containers for filling products such as milk, juice, dairy products, yogurt, wine and more. Usually aseptic. From the filling machine to the palletizer.
The first step is the blow molder, which heats up the preforms and, with the help of special molds, proceeds to blow them up utilizing high pressure air to form a plastic bottle. At the end of the process the bottles are ready to be filled.
The cap unscrewer takes care of removing the caps still present on the glass bottles that have returned to the factory after being used. It is generally used before the bottle washer.
The capper is usually placed after the filler, it is used to close bottles, cartons, etc. after the filling phase. The caps can be made of different materials such as metal, plastic, cork or synthetics.
The capsuling monoblock places a PVC or polylaminated heat-shrinkable aluminum capsule on the glass bottle after it has been capped.
The filler is considered the heart of a filling line. It puts the product inside the container. It can also be isobaric (characterized by constant or equal pressure), depending on whether the product must be still or carbonated.
The filling monoblock combines the filler as well as additional machines in a single block, e.g. a rinsing machine or a capper but frequently also a blowing machine and a labeler.
The heating / cooling tunnel brings the bottled product to room temperature, after it has been filled hot or cold.
The inspector is an indispensable part of a bottling line. It inspects everything that would be impossible to see with the naked eye at high speeds, like the bottle itself, the level of product inside, the cap, or any anomaly.
The labeler enables you to create brand recognition to your containers, in a way, your business card.
It applies the labels to the bottles and if necessary it also affixes the state seal.
The pasteurizer is used to sanitize and extend the shelf life of beverages such as milk and dairy products, juices and often wine and beer. It eliminates the pathogens present in the product without altering the taste.
The preform injection system allows you to create PET preforms. It uses polymers, which after being dried, are processed and transformed into preforms using molding to then be transported much more efficiently than a whole bottle.
The rinsing machine washes the bottle internally to remove any residues which ended up accidentally inside. The machine can do multiple treatments based on sterilization needs.
The saturator is a machine used for the preparation of carbonated drinks through the introduction of carbon dioxide.
The washer dryer for bottles allows the washing and the complete drying of the outside of the filled bottle, to enable perfect labeling and packing without residual humidity.
The wirehooder places a wirehood on the bottle immediately after capping, exclusively on mushroom cork caps for spumante.
The case erector forms a cardboard box from a flat box. It takes the box from the storage, folds it and seals the lower part with adhesive tape.
The case packer inserts the container, for example the bottle, filled, capped and labeled inside the carton box.
The crater is used to place the bottles in crates. Its operation is similar to the case packer.
The depalletizer has the function of removing the bottles from the pallet layer by layer and place them on the line to be worked.
The partition inserter places vertical sheets of cardboard inside the box to create the hives that protect the glass bottles inside the box, dividing them one from the other.
The handle applicator attaches a plastic handle to the bundles through welding, to facilitate the manual transport from the shop for the end user.
The packing monoblock, like the filling monoblock, combines several machines, and performs the whole packing process, including the erection of the cardboard box, the insertion of the containers inside the boxes and the closure.
The pallet stretch wrapper is one of the last machines of a complete bottling line. Through various systems it wraps the entire pallet. From here the pallet can be stored or loaded directly onto the truck
The shrink wrapper groups cans and bottles in various formats, closing them with a shrink-wrapping film.
The wrap around similar to the packing monoblock encloses the bottles inside a box. But instead of putting them in a box already made, it builds the box around the bottles.
The compressor allows the operation of almost all the machines in a bottling line. There are generally two types, high and low pressure depending on the type of machinery connected to it.
Osmosis systems include all systems which purify, demineralize and decalcify water.
Printers can be of different types and can have different functions. They can print on bottles, pallets, boxes, labels. Based on the needs of the production line.
Tanks are used in the storage of beverages such as wine, fruit juices, milk etc. They help conserve products before being bottled, sometimes even refrigerating them for better preservation.
