Investment for Innovation at Allied Glass

Post Time:May 05,2015Classify:Company NewsView:451

Allied Glass Containers’ commitment to having some of the most advanced factories in the European glass industry has recently received a boost.
This was due to the redevelopment of Allied’s L11 production line, which is now in operation, at the company’s Leeds production facility.
Involving substantial investment, the line begins with a new Emhart 12 section, double gob BIS machine, which has the latest electronic and servomechanisms to allow for greater precision, essential in the complex manufacturing process. This is served by a new wider Sorg forehearth, which has increased the capacity to produce larger volumes of conditioned glass.

The accompanying inspection line is fitted with some of the most modern equipment available, enhancing inspection capability without compromise. It has new Tiama iCare 4 hot end inspection equipment and a new cross conveyor and Sheppee tripple axis stacker system. There is also a new, fully automated, gas lehr alongside a modern cold end line, which includes a new Graphoidal overhead and under-belt coating system as well as a Pro-Sight for ring, base and mould number detection and an upgraded MSC MCAL 3 side wall inspection unit. In order to have a greater throughput of bottles, the line has been split into two and then inspected with two Tiama MX4 machines.
There has also been significant investment in the rotary machine ring inspection Atlas System which is dedicated to the non-contact detection of checks in the ring, the neck, the shoulder and the bottom area of the glass.
Allied Glass Containers pursues a policy of consistent investment, this latest expansion demonstrating the company’s commitment to providing our customers with superior glass packaging within a highly flexible operation, Richard Summers, Operations Director for Allied Glass Containers, says:
“With this substantial investment in a new production line, we have made a bold commitment to growth and confirmed Allied Glass Containers’ Leeds as one of the most advanced factories producing spirit containers in the United Kingdom.”
