7 PROCESS SUPPORT

Case study example:

Several variables contributed to a PET bottle expansion-related performance problem.

Machine: Sidel Universal 34 Application: carbonated soft drink

Solution:  Three-pronged approach

  • 18 fewer lamps were used to produce the package 
  • Heat profile was changed 
  • Start-up parameters adjusted (same bottle at start-up and running state) 

 

Results and Economics:

  • Improved overall performance
  • 15% improvement in line efficiency 
  • Labeler problems minimized
  • Reduced the scrap 

 

 Additional benefits:  Reduced watt hours per bottle from 4.2 to 3.42
