Automatic swabbing selected for South Korea glassworks
When leading South Korean beer and soju producer Hite Jinro rebuilds its Jinju glass container furnace in February 2020, the opportunity will also be taken to install some advanced production technology. This includes the acquisition of Socabelec swabbing robots on IS machines supplied by Bucher Emhart Glass.
Automatic swabbing is one of the areas in which Hite wants to invest in order to guarantee the highest level of productivity. User satisfaction, robot reliability, on-the-fly swabbing without stopping production, without rejecting containers, as well as a high level of safety for
operators working together with the robot, were the main criteria for selecting the Socabelec equipment.
