High Speed Case Study
Customer: Cott Beverage.
With dramatically increased product demand Cott Beverage required
significantly higher production speeds from equipment that was purchased
less than 12 months earlier. Replacement stretch wrappers were suggested
by competitors, however CAPS suggested upgrading the machine frame
to accept an upgraded drive system that would allow higher speeds.
After studying the cycle times of the production line it was found
that there were a number of areas of the cycle that could be improved
with hardware and software modifications. Rotation speed, material
handling, and film tail treatment were some sections of the cycle
A High-Speed package was proposed consisting of engineered hardware
and software upgrades designed specifically by CAPS.
The stretch wrapper rotation speed was increased by more than 40%.
With all modifications completed, the production capacity of the
equipment was increased in excess of 30%. With success confirmed,
Cott has proceeded with the upgrade on subsequent stretch wrappers.
