Innovative new quality tool from Corvaglia lowers rejection rates on filling lines during the manufacture of beverage closures

Otto Appel

During the process of applying beverage closures to PET bottles, minor gradations can determine whether the closure will be grasped and placed on the bottle correctly in the filling line. At filling speeds of up to 100,000 bottles per hour, even slight variations at the closure can result in unacceptably high rejection rates.
